Tia, an owner of a rescue center, was handling a rescue in the country. She received information that there was a dog tied to a church while she was there. Since she is unavailable, she called some of her workers to handle that rescue.
Marcel and a couple more employees went to the location and saw a dog with heavy chains. The dog had no food or water. Marcel needed to see if the dog was aggressive in any way. He was not.
The poor dog was just scared. As Marcel and his team were giving him treats, they noticed that there was an abscess on the dog’s front leg.
Some owners with sick dogs have no means of taking care of them. Others don’t want to, so they end up abandoning the canines. That might be one of the reasons why he was abandoned.
Marcel has no way of knowing if the dog is in pain or not. This means that Marcel needs to get the dog to a vet right away to figure it out.
One of the employees distracted the dog with treats as Marcel slowly untied him. He did not want to scare the dog off, so they needed to bring the dog’s focus on the treats. And it worked.
As they were trying to put the dog inside the vehicle, it tried to hide between Marcel’s legs. The dog was so fearful. Since the dog seems to trust Marcel, Marcel carried him inside the car.
Marcel named the dog Pastor as he was rescued in a church. Marcel brought Pastor to the vet. The vet was worried as she saw the mass on the leg, but they needed to check it thoroughly. Pastor needed to stay in the clinic for a couple more days for it.
After a week, Marcel went back to the clinic to get Pastor. The vet had good news. They were able to do a total mass removal on Pastor’s leg. The mass turned out to be benign. It was just inflammation.
This was the best scenario that they could hope for. Since Pastor is healthy, he is ready for his forever home.
