When Ralph the dog was found by the rescuers, he was in such bad shape that they wondered if it would be kinder to let him go. Instead, they didn’t give up and the dog didn’t give up either.
Dog rescue is not for the faint of heart. Every day, dogs like Ralph are found abandoned on the side of the road, thrown out of cars in the countryside, and the lucky ones are dropped off at shelters, so they don’t slowly starve to death.
The people who rescue these animals are true heroes who put their heart and soul into saving the dogs. The situation of some dogs is particularly heartbreaking, and Ralph was one of those dogs. His rescuers, who saw everything, even wondered if they could help him.
Ralph was abandoned and, like so many homeless dogs, he was very emaciated. He was starving, dehydrated, had mange, and was covered in parasites. His situation was so bleak that his rescuers, Sidewalk Specials, wondered if he should be humanely euthanized.
The dog was between life and death, and no one knew if he would make it. Everything could have turned out differently, but they decided they had to give him a second chance and would do their best to try to save his life.
Breath by breath, Ralph fought for his life and his rescuers fought alongside him. This determined dog was not about to give up and if he kept pushing, his caretakers would push even harder.
It was painful to see Ralph in such a heartbreaking state. He was only skin and bones. How he could have been so neglected is unfathomable to dog lovers. Thankfully, his vet team and the rescue team were able to take care of him, despite the obstacles that lay ahead.
Amazingly, Ralph not only survived, but he also thrived. His will to live was stronger than the pull of death and he overcame all his health problems to become a beautiful, happy dog. Just by looking at him, you would never guess what state he was in.
Today, he has a loving family and even a dog friend. His story is one of great survival and can teach us all not to give up. We hope you enjoyed it. Please feel free to share it with your friends.
