Homeless dog living in a cardboard box gets rescued & has a heartwarming transformation.

A homeless dog's transformation: sick, sad and lonely on the streets, he is rescued and turns into a joyful dog surrounded by friends. Buzu was living in a cardboard box, on the streets and was in a very miserable shape when we rescued him. We do not know if he ever had an owner as he didn’t have a microchip but taking into account his skin condition, he seemed to have been roaming the streets for a very long time: full of fleas, he developed an allergic dermatitis which led to hair loss on some parts of his body (especially on his neck and back). Untreated, it progressed, became chronic and got infected with Malassezia, a yeast that also caused him otitis. We had him on specific medication and medicated shampoos, but hair has still to grow on the affected areas. Except for the stubborn skin problem that we hope will be solved, Buzu is a healthy dog. He is ~5-6 years old, still a little shy with people he doesn’t know, very submissive and calm. He’s not very interested in exploring new territories and feels safer in the areas he knows, he likes to take a few runs in the garden, then to relax in the sun. He is friendly with other dogs and his best friend is a cat :) He appreciates most the things he didn’t have on the street: love, food and security. He is the kindest dog we’ve ever met and it’s so hard to understand how could have someone abandoned him and why he had been on the streets for so many years. Anyone willing to offer him the love and home he deserves please contact us on [email protected] Thank you! Additional info: Buzu has an up-to-date medical record with all necessary vaccines and treatments and is now microchiped and neutered. ...................... UPDATE 15 FEB 2015: BUZU WAS ADOPTED! https://www.howlofadog.org/buzu-adopt... We managed to find Buzu a wonderful adoptive family in England. After a very long trip (~2000 km) he arrived yesterday at his forever home. It’s the perfect place for him: his “mom” is not only a great animal lover but she also has a lot of experience with dogs, running a day care center for dogs and working closely with veterinarians. So Buzu will be overwhelmed with love and provided all the medical care he needs. He’s sharing his home with another lovely dog and a cat, which is just perfect because he loves having friends around. Thank you so much Emma for making Buzu a part of your family and offering him the home he has been waiting for all this time! We must also thank everyone who helped us and got involved in Buzu’s story. And thank you to all of you who have shared his photos/video on Facebook or YouTube – that’s how his story got to his adoptive family. Our gratitude to all Howl Of A Dog friends! Have a long happy life Buzu!
