A stray dog named Harris was found in terrible shape. He was malnourished, and he had bruises all over his body. He also had injuries to his head which were very concerning for the rescuers. Because of his condition, they rushed him to the vet and had him checked.
It was worse than what the rescuers expected. There, they found out that Harris was unable to use his hind legs. He couldn’t walk or even sit on his own. He had to wear a diaper as well.
The doctors had to place feeding tubes on Harris because he could not eat or drink. The vets also had to give him occasional oxygen, which was a big help. There was so much going on, and the rescuers understood why Harris was a little wary of people. He was withdrawn at first.
The rescuers did not want to pressure him into opening up, especially with all his health issues. They wanted to make him feel really comfortable and loved. Some of the rescuers even slept with him to let him know that they were there for him. They wanted to be there as he was trying to recover from his conditions.
After a couple of days, the doctors and the rescue workers were very happily surprised. Harris started to drink and eat on his own! When they saw him do it for the first time, they were so proud because it was a significant achievement for Harris.
It wasn’t long until he started walking as well. Harris indeed was a fighter and has inspired a lot of people. His rescuers did everything they could to find him a foster home.
This gave Harris a chance to experience being part of a family. Everyone involved in his journey was thrilled that he got better and got a chance to have a forever home.
