The tragic story about Anubis has moved the entire world over the past few weeks.Born in Cairo, he was adopted by his family to be a guard dog on their property. The poor dog was constrained to his guard post all throughout the day and night, and so all he did was bark at every passerby.
Luckily, the poor dog managed to survive the torture and escaped from his home.Anubis spent the next years of his life wandering the streets of Cairo, looking for scraps of food and sleeping under cars.
But when the Egyptian charity "Animal Protection Foundation" came across Anubis by chance, they knew they had to help him.This would be the start of his new life.Soon, an international animal rescue group calledSNARRtook Anubis under their wingand set about finding him a new home. This home would be thousands of miles away, in America.
