A Severely malnourished and Cancerous stray dog becomes the star dog of his locality in a few months
A dog is the best friend a human can ever have. While many people bring home dogs from a good breed and find happiness with them, there are these homeless and ill stray dogs that live on the streets unloved and uncared for. One such stray that was covered with cancerous tumours all over his body found hope and love. This is nothing short of a miracle in his life.
1 The Life of Stray Dogs
It is not easy being a stray dog. They are the unloved and homeless lot who have no security and have to hunt for their next meals in garbage cans or discards. These dogs bear the harsh weather conditions be it harsh sunlight or snowy winters. They live on the streets and find places to shield themselves of the harsh weather conditions from time to time. As there is no proper hygiene and diet, these dogs are often plagued with serious health conditions and most of them die unattended.
2 This Cancerous Stray Dog Gets Lucky
Early in 2015 this stray dog was battling for his life on the streets; his body was covered with cancerous tumours. One passerby could not bear to see his distress and decided to help him. The dog was also severely malnourished. No one had been kind to feed him or care for him. This passerby was god sent and the stray was to witness a miracle soon.
3 The Rescuer takes the ill Dog to an Animal Rights Activist to save his Life
The rescuer took the ill dog to an animal rights activist Dalia Gamez who adopted him. He was named Boby and began to get the treatment to cure his illness.
4 Dalia’s Efforts to Save Boby’s Life
A visit to vet revealed that Boby was about two years old and that his tumours were cancerous. He was prescribed chemotherapy which seemed difficult an option but the only one. Soon Boby was put through eight cycles of chemotherapy and Dalia did her best to cheer him up and support him during this tough time.
5 The Prognosis after the Chemotherapy
After the eight rounds of chemotherapy which lasted for about two months, it was still not clear whether he would survive or not.
6 The Miraculous Recovery
Dalia was always by his side caring and looking after Boby during the course of his treatment and this love and care bore fruits soon. Boby began to respond to the treatment and soon was on the way to his recovery. His tumours disappeared and his fur began to grow back think and shiny, covering all scars. His weight had also increased. He got back his energy and was able to run, jump and play like any other dog.
7 Boby becomes the New Local Celebrity
As the story of Boby’s miraculous recovery began to spread around the locality, soon there was a queue of the local people waiting in long lines to meet him and witness the miracle for themselves. He had become the new star dog for the locals.
8 Boby finds a forever Home
Soon enough Dalia was able to find a loving home for Boby where he would live forever. The family was kind and loved Boby.
