A starved mixed breed dog found tied and abandoned in a farm located in El Santuario, Colombia, is lucky to be alive today, this, thanks to neighbors who spotted the dog. Authorities were called and police rushed to rescue the pet.
Local veterinarians are saying it is a miracle the dog is still alive. It is unknown how long the pet had been abandoned there but he had no shelter, food or water. No one knows how the dog survived, yet when found, the gentle dog had enough will to live and was standing on his own. Veterinarians say the pet was close to dying but are hopeful the dog will make a full recovery.
