Having to say goodbye to a puppy because, being suffering and with little chance of recovery, euthanasia is necessary; It is a tremendously hard and difficult time.
However, in cases like that of Robin, a puppy found injured and immediately placed on the euthanasia list, miracles also exist.
With stories like these, it is necessary to warn that extreme caution should always be exercised with the shelter where an injured animal is taken. Although it seems counterintuitive, many places are actually «kill shelters.»
They will not go out of their way to risk everything for every creature that arrives. On the contrary, they will dedicate themselves to slaughtering and slaughtering animals, like someone who «checks the shopping list.» Of course, sometimes there is no other option, but that is not always the case.
There were 5 minutes left for a puppy that was in good health to be euthanized
The only thing that happened to Robin is that he was found limping due to an injury to one of his legs. Picked up like any other stray, he would be immediately «put to sleep» by the health authorities.
The plan was to sedate all dogs equally, no matter how severe. They would then administer a lethal dose to force Robin and the rest of the group to die.
The poor puppy was only 5 minutes away from being sacrificed, when suddenly, his rescuers began to scream to stop the procedure and ask for Robin’s salvation.
Luckily, it was a cry for justice at the last second, which managed to stop such an act of cowardice. He was transferred to VetRanch, where the vets made a find that left them on edge.
The innocent cub was actually in the most robust health, with no broken bones and was completely out of danger. It wasn’t true that he had a broken leg, it was just bruised, and that’s why he limped.
Was he really going to be sacrificed for a simple blow to his leg? And if they did the same to those who gave the order to end his life? Well, that would be fair! Do not you believe it?
Studies showed that he had no permanent or serious damage
There’s no doubt that Robin is one lucky pup. But the story does not end there. It wasn’t until after saving his life that his heroes realized how much he loved hugs. And they are the most adorable thing in the world.
The group of vets said they became very attached to Robin, as he is a very sweet and appreciative dog. They assured that they did not believe the true possibility that a decision taken lightly to practice euthanasia could have ended the life of an innocent being without need.
He kept hugging his vet
«It’s hard to think that we were about to needlessly kill someone as friendly and cuddly as Robin,» said one of the rescuers.
It wasn’t long before Robin became famous for giving the best gratitude hugs. He seems to say with them how happy he is to still be alive.
Vet Ranch published the scenes that leave no one indifferent:
One month after his rescue, after his full recovery, Robin was taken to a new home where he is currently cared for and loved by his new family. His new mother says that they are both happy with the meeting.
«Rest assured, Robin is being properly pampered,» said his new mom.
When a small animal is very sick, or so injured that its quality of life will never be good or acceptable again, making the decision to euthanize it can be the most beautiful and kind favor we can do for it. But the decision that is made because he is abandoned and homeless should cause us shame as a society.
Congratulations, Robin, for defeating death and finding that owner you were waiting for and who will fill you with affection! Your story must stir consciences.
