Dog Chained Outside For Years In Negative Temperatures Finally Feels The Warmth Of Love


Diesel was chained up by his owner in Yukon, Canada, and left out in the backyard for years. In the brutal heat of summer and the freezing cold winters, he was left outside.

When Animal Advocates Society found him, he was covered in dry blood from a dog fight. The poor dog had also been kicked in the face by a horse, leaving his teeth almost completely broken and his tongue split.He would raise one paw at time to try and keep it warm in the negative 40 degree temperatures. All this could easily have killed him. But it didn't. So when his owner got sick of caring for him, he was going to shoot him.

Thankfully, rescuers stepped in just in time. They pulled him from the abusive home, and rushed him to immediately get treatment.

Vets neutered him and removed a benign tumor that had been left untreated.Slowly, Diesel started to warm to humans in his new foster home. He was still scared of other dogs and children, but he proved to be a huge teddy bear.The gentle giant loves cuddles from his humans and is loving life now that he's free. Unfortunately, he doesn't quite understand proper dog behaviors and manners.
