One day, a Good Samaritan called Animal Aid about a street dog with a pig face.

Rescuers showed up and discovered a dog with a severely swollen head. And the swelling did, indeed, leave him looking more like a pig than a dog!

The animal needed help urgently.

Even though he must have been in so much pain, this dog with a pig face was friendly. He greeted the group of rescue workers cheerfully, though he wouldn’t let them touch him.

Good Samaritans Rescue Dog Suffering Painful Abscess

The group spent 20 minutes trying to earn the dog’s trust by feeding him treats. He happily accepted the food but still wouldn’t let anyone close enough to grab him.

So, the workers used a large net to capture him. They didn’t want to run the risk of the dog running away to the open fields where catching him would become nearly impossible.

Back at the Animal Aid facility, a team gave the dog with a pig face the medical attention he so desperately needed. Using a needle, they confirmed the problem. A huge abscess caused the severe swelling giving the dog a pig-like appearance.

The workers sedated the suffering street pup and performed a procedure to flush out and drain his huge abscess. Next, they stitched him back up and gave him the care and attention needed for a safe recovery.

The transformation is miraculous! Within two weeks, the dog with a pig face healed completely. And now, he looked like the handsome pup God had made him to be.

The relief from the pressure of the abscess must have felt Heavenly. But even better, this street dog got to experience love and compassion!
