The “broken and forgotten” dog couldn’t contain his joy as he realized he was being rescued, a smile spreading across his face.

Animal rescuers have seen abandoned animals in the most appalling conditions imaginable and always do their best at nurturing them back to life. However, even those who have seen it all sometimes get shocked by certain instances of animal mistreatment. Yet they don’t get discouraged from doing their job, because there’s nothing more rewarding than seeing those miserable cats and sad dogs recovering from all adversities, healing and finding forever homes. One instance just like that made the employees of Dallas DogRRR proud to see how their hard dog rescue work pays off.

Recently, the animal rescue group Dallas DogRRR shared the story of a badly mistreated stary dog named Sanford. After the unfortunate canine was found by animal control employees, he was put in a municipal animal shelter where he was kept for a whole week without any medical assistance that he so desperately needed.

When Dallas DogRRR employees first met Sanford, they described him as ‘broken’. As it turned out, not only did the dog suffer injuries sustained after he was hit by a car, he was also shot and carried a bullet in his body for a while.

The badly injured animal couldn’t even walk and was kept in a dog shelter waiting for his turn to be put down. The organization described his situation as ‘absolutely sickening’ and vowed to save him. “We can’t imagine the pain he has been in, but we’re going to try to help him,” they wrote.

Once Sanford was checked by a vet, it turned out that he doesn’t have any life-threatening injuries. However, just by looking at his face, you could see that 10-year-old Sanford has been through a lot in his life.

Although things have changed dramatically once he was treated and taken to his new foster mom, Karen Velazquez.

Since the moment Sanford entered her home, he realized that he’s finally in a safe place and couldn’t be happier about it! Velazquez told The Dodo: ‘He has been all smiles ever since. I think the minute he came to my home, he realized he was in a safe place.’
