Poor Dog’S Body Curled Up In Emaciation To Hide From The World

When Perry the dog was first found on the streets, he was too weak to even find food. But thanks to the patient care of his rescuers, he underwent a stunning transformation.

Perry was rescued from the brink of death by Animal Aid Unlimited after he was found living on the streets of India. Photos show just how far gone this gentle dog was – completely covered in mange, he stares soulfully into the camera in one picture, his hairless body covered in scabs and open, bleeding wounds.

In other photos, he curls his head into his emaciated body, seemingly hiding from the world.

Perry is one of the thousands of dogs who call the streets of India home. As they have no owners, when they get sick they have no one to care for them – and that’s where Animal Aid Unlimited steps in.

After rescuers found him, they rushed him into medical care. He was hooked up to an IV, and received medicine for his painful skin condition. A brief clip taken midway through his treatment shows some improvement, but the little dog is clearly still traumatized by his long ordeal. He curls up on his blanket as one of his carers strokes his ears and holds his bandaged paw.

Rescue dogs like Perry can take months to recover, both physically and emotionally. But after weeks of medicine, food and patient love, this poor pup looks like an entirely different dog. Video of him taken more recently shows a happy, lanky dog running straight at the camera, his boldness and exuberance miles away from his cowering posture when he was first found.

In another clip, he can be seen running up to one of the women who cared for him and burying himself in her arms, clearly relishing in the attention and the happy cuddles.
