This desperate street dog seemed impossible to save. His skull appeared more incomplete than wounded. The maggots had burrowed in and it now looked like a basin with exposed bone at the bottom. When maggots proliferate like this, they can do enormous damage within just hours. His survival was doubtful. He wandered in circles, but something in his overall body condition gave Animal Aid Unlimited a glimmer of hope.
Rescuers learned that Alfie was one of the souls on earth with an enormous capacity to give and receive love. Without this unique gift, even with the vigilant medical treatment, he probably couldn’t have survived. But Alfie–well, Alfie’s someone special. Wait until you see how good he looks today! 🙂
