This little girl was found carrying her sick dog around asking for help, the puppy was almost dying and the poor girl didn’t know what to do, a good samaritan tell her about Sidewalk Specials, a mass sterilization unit & dog rescue based in the township of De Doorns, South Africa.
A dog called Lamb was brought to Sidewalk Specials by his owner’s sister as he was in desperate need of help. The condition of the 2-month-old dog was so bad as he did not have a place to sleep in, so, he’d been sleeping in the streets!
Desperate to get him help, she decided to carry Lamb more than a mile from her home to the spot she’d heard that dog rescue based in the township of De Doorns would be.
“When I first saw them, I was very surprised and touched,” Ogün told. “She’d wrapped her dog up and brought him to me on her back.”
The dog was placed in a foster home to receive the necessary treatment. Fortunately, the dog’s condition improved as a result of the love and food. The dog’s sickness wasn’t all too serious. Ogün found Lamb just had some minor skin issues that were making him uncomfortable, but which could easily be treated.
“When Cemre heard that her dog would be fine, she was very happy,” Ogün said. “I applied external parasite medications to Lamb. He is now enjoying himself again, healthy and happy.”
