Dog Chained Up for Eight Years Experiences Affection for First Time
Animal Rescue Spain posted a video of a newly rescued dog named Bron on their Facebook page recently. Bron had very sad eyes and it was obvious that it had been traumatized and hasn’t felt affection for a long time.
At the latter part of the video, one can see a staff from the organization gently petting the dog, communicating love and affection on every stroke of his hand. Before the clip ended, Bron can be seen wagging his tail and happily walking towards the open arms of the volunteer eager for more hugs and kisses.
The FB post read: “First touch of a battered dog. It is 1 year of the arrival of Bron. After many years as a guard dog, tied with a chain of punishment whose spikes had already embedded in his neck, he was to be sacrificed. So we decided to save him and since then he’s in treatment for his fears.”
Unfortunately, while most of Bron’s physical scars have healed, it was not enough to bring him back to his previous happy self. Abused dogs, just like humans, have invisible scars that are far harder to treat.
“His heart has many scars to erase,” continued the post.
According to a report from the Dodo.com, Bron had been living for eight years in an arduous situation. The poor dog was chained up on a farm in Spain where volunteers from Animal Rescue Spain found him.
“Bron is one of the most difficult cases we have encountered. When we first approached, he would flee, snarling,” shared rescuer Pilar Delgado.
Bron’s journey has not been easy. Rescuers worked with him for a year before he learned to trust and let anyone touch him the way that is seen in the video.
As regards Bron’s progress and future, Delgado said that “He is a happy dog but he still has barriers to overcome. Bron’s heart still hopes that, despite all difficulties, he can live out his days with a family.”
