Volunteers brought a dog to the shelter, which was taken from bad owners.
It seems that the life of the animal was far from happy. The dog hid in a corner and sat there all day, refusing to eat.
When all the ways to help the poor fellow were used, a veterinarian suddenly came to the rescue with two bowls: he asked to record all his actions on video.
The dog was named Gracie, but she still didn’t respond to the name. Severe stress seriously affected her condition.
In such a situation, delicious food and care could help, only Gracie refused to eat and shunned people.
Shelter volunteers posted Gracie’s story on Facebook, and Andy Mathis, a well-known veterinarian, responded to the post.
He agreed to come to the establishment and try to help the dog regain faith in people.
In the morning, Mathis entered the dog’s enclosure with two identical bowls. Both were filled with food: the veterinarian took one for himself, the second he put in front of the dog.
The man began to eat without paying attention to his companion.
After a few minutes, Gracie stepped out of the corner a little and looked at the man.
Then she glanced at her bowl, and then the vet made a risky move: he took some food from her bowl and held it out in the palm of his hand right up to the dog’s nose.
Surprisingly, Gracie only hesitated a little before taking the treat. This time, the dog took almost an hour to finish a bowl of food. She took every bite with excitement.
Little by little, the dog learned to trust people again.
Most likely, Gracie will try to find a new home. This time with good and loving owners.
See how this amazing moment went:
