Anand Raman was visiting his sister at work on a hot day in Dubai when he saw a dog trying to stay cool in the shade under a parked car. The young pup came running toward him on some legs that weren’t quite right, but the dog was so happy and wagging his tail. Anand fell in love with him right away and sat there just petting him for a while.
He carried the dog back to his car, and the dog fell asleep on his shoulder as he drove to the vet. The poor thing was exhausted but content. At the hospital, they learned that the dog had rickets in both front legs due to malnutrition. But it’s a treatable condition that will have no lasting effects.
Anand was then able to take the dog home, so he gave him a bath. And he couldn’t believe it when the bath revealed the dog to be pure white! He was so filthy on the streets. He named the dog Snowy after the dog from “The Adventures of Tintin.”
The man wanted nothing more than to keep the dog and make him feel at home, but it was difficult at first. For a young dog who spent his entire life surviving on the streets, Snowy wasn’t sure how to act or what to do inside a home. And when they went on walks, the dog was terrified he was going to be left out there once again.
But Snowy finally came around and understood he was going nowhere! He had found love and his forever home, and he could leave his past behind for good.
“He sleeps and waits for us to get home from work, which is when he showers us with love and we reciprocate the same with him. He also gels amazingly well with any dog he comes across and is very well-behaved with kids and guests,” Anand told The Dodo.
What an amazing rescue story! 🙂
