It’s almost impossible to believe that this dog, who now can’t stop smiling, was once described as being a ‘broken and forgotten dog’.
Despite having a nearly perfect life now, Stanford’s first years were quite misfortunate. So much so that the adorable pooch nearly gave up on life altogether. It wasn’t that long ago either. This past spring, Dallas DogRRR, a Dallas-based rescue group, posted about the pooch and described him as ‘broken and forgotten’.
After being hit by a car, poor Stanford was taken to the county’s shelter. With the Coronavirus starting to affect people financially, more and more people began to ditch their pets. This, of course, caused the shelters to overflow with strays. Stanford spent a whole week laying in his kennel, in agonizing pain and unable to walk.
The heart-wrenching moment a volunteer at Dallas DogsRRR found the indifferent dog almost left him in tears. As the man approached Stanford’s kennel, the dog remained still. He was completely apathetic and appeared to give up on life altogether. Luckily the kind animal lover wasn’t going to give up on him.
The volunteer took Stanford to a vet who treated his wounds. After a quick recovery, the pooch was fostered by a kind woman named Karen Velazquez. That’s when things started to look much brighter for the doggo, and the change was almost immediate.
The once depressed stray dog instantly turned into the happiest pooch, who simply can’t stop smiling. Velazquez says that she’d never seen anything like it, and she should know. The kind woman fostered more than 50 dogs over the years.
Stanford will spend as much time as it takes in his temporary foster home, which given his captivating smile, wouldn’t be too long. All it took to change Stanford’s life around were two caring humans, and a touch of love, and hope.
