When animal rescuers save abused and neglected dogs, they work quickly to treat the physical injuries but have to spend months treating the animal’s emotional wounds.
When a group of rescuers found a guard dog named Bron chained up on a farm in Spain, it was clear by the numerous injuries that covered his body that he had been abused. However, they didn’t realize that the years of abuse and suffering had left even bigger scars on his emotions.
“Bron is one of the most difficult cases we have encountered,” rescuer Pilar Delgado said. “When we first approached, he would flee, snarling.” Once Bron was removed from his chains, which were digging into his neck, and brought to safety, he slowly started to trust the team.
No matter how hard the team worked to gain Bron’s trust, he would never let them pet him or cuddle with him. Thankfully, however, his rescuers refused to give up, and Bron finally let his rescuer pet him for the first time in his life. “He is a happy dog, but he still has barriers to overcome,” Delgado said. “Bron’s heart still hopes that, despite all the difficulties, he can live out his days with a family.”
