This dog was on the verge of death due to cruel owner, but veterinarians managed to rescue him.
Some of you may have heard of Ethan, the dog who intentionally lost weight. It was Jan. 29 when the Kentucky Animal Welfare Society discovered a tortured dog left outside a shelter.
When the center’s staff was called about the dog, they immediately rushed to help. It was an exceptional case where the dog was so traumatized and dehydrated that the vets could not be sure they could save Ethan.
According to the staff, they had never seen a dog so thin. His bones were clearly different. It was a miracle to see Ethan alive.
The vets suspected that his owner might have left the poor dog without food for a long time.
It’s hard to imagine how strong this dog is. In February, he started gaining weight again. Ethan’s story began to be followed by people all over the planet.
The dog became famous. Hundreds of people sent him tons of toys and cards. They became a global family for Nathan.
The dog soon found a foster family. The good boy brought so much joy into the life of the foster family. Eventually the Callaway family decided to adopt Nathan.
Months passed and the poor animal began to have daily cramps due to starvation. But thanks to veterinarians and neurologists, the baby is now enjoying his life to the fullest. Nathan’s family continues to keep the army of fans informed about the baby’s health.
