There is a saying that there is both good and evil in our world. It is up to us to choose where we stand. But unfortunately, there are more bad people in the world than good. This story is an excellent reminder of the above saying.
A “werewolf,” They Said.
A strange creature was hanging around an orchard in Madera Ranchos, California. People in the area were aware of this creature and were scared to go near it since it looked like a wolf. They guessed that only because it had dark black fur all over it. They called it a werewolf.
For several months, this “werewolf” remained by the side of the road. Its tail was broken and pointed, and its skin was rough and scaly. Its shredded black fur, such as what was left of it, was standing straight up on its neck. It was balding and skinny all by itself. During hot sun, heavy rains, day and night.
A Passerby Could Not Ignore This Creature.
This creature, named a “werewolf” by townspeople, had some luck left in it.
One day, a helpful bystander observed it and quickly posted about him on Facebook from her car. And she had an excellent heart to wait until someone came to help the creature. It did not take so long. A savior came soon to help the creature. And the savior was, luckily, the founder of Bowe’s Adoptable Rescued Pup, Megan Bowe.
Megan recognized that this so-called “werewolf” was a severely malnourished and abandoned German shepherd mix. The dog could hardly walk and had probably gone weeks without a decent meal. Megan Bowe said that she was about ready to cry when she saw how bad off the dog was. And it was really on his last leg. It was depressing, and it could barely even stand up. She gave it the name “King.” She then brought it into her car to an emergency veterinarian clinic.
Why Was “King” Like That?
King voluntarily accompanied Megan and appeared relieved to receive assistance finally. King was just a year old, although he seemed to be older. The vet found that King had several illnesses and wounds. But his most serious ailments were scabies, a broken pelvis, and a broken tail.
After the medical checkup, Megan said that her vet thought it got hit by a car, and that would explain how its tail was so messed up, too. And that injury happened months ago because it had already started to heal incorrectly by the time she got it. And with such a damaged pelvis, it could not get around very far on its own to look for food, so it was extremely skinny and dehydrated.
Megan Saved King When The Whole Town Did Not Care.
King had contagious illnesses, so Megan put up a quarantine facility in her garage so he could recover without contaminating the other animals she looked after. To help King restore his weight and strength at the right speed, she started him on modest portions of food and progressively increased them. Before having surgery on his tail and pelvis, King needed all the strength he could gather. It was evident that he was appreciative despite his frailty and damage.
Could King Survive The Surgery?
And everything went off without a hitch. On advice from his veterinarian, King now takes daily walks to strengthen his leg. At the end of the month, King will revisit the vet to have his stitches removed and assess his healing status. He may require surgery on his second hip after he recovers from the initial procedures.
From werewolf to King, This German Shepherd Went Through So Many Things.
Despite King’s long journey, the situation now appears much more promising than it did a few months ago. When considering the current situation, King is pretty different from the terrifying “werewolf” that those humans formerly feared. Megan believes that King will be able to recover in a few months. He will then be up for adoption at that point. Of course, King is currently content with every aspect of his new existence.
Megan expressed that it is now more joyful than ever. And it is an affectionate dog. King lays his head on Megan as she sits down, perhaps intending to hug her. Megan said that it had been so peaceful and relaxed after all the King went through.
