Virus Overwhelmed His Owner So He’s Left, Starves As Sores Engulf His Mouth

*Some images may be upsetting due to advanced disease. However, we promise that this dog is getting the best care possible!

We cannot imagine the pain this dog felt as he suffered day in and day out from a horrible disease. He was all alone with no one to turn to.

His owner was overwhelmed or didn’t care about his illness and left him on the street to die.

The sweet innocent dog was suffering from Oral Papilloma. It’s a virus that causes benign tumors on the lips and inside the mouth.

It usually affects dogs two years of age and younger since their immune system isn’t fully developed.

The worst part is that the tumors, or intense sores, can get infected causing horrific pain and swelling. This will eventually make it impossible for the dog to eat.

That is what happened to this sweet boy stuck all alone on the street. The virus was an aggressive form and had taken over his entire mouth.

At the point of rescue (and thank God he was rescued!), he was just skin and bones. He had a thick layer of fur so it was hard to tell but this dog was so skinny!

The rescuers worked hard to catch him so they could help him. When they finally did, they named him Booba.

The vet was in awe of his condition. It’s hard to treat at this point so he decided to resect some of the tumors to send to a special lab.

The lab can test the virus and make a special vaccine. But nothing is for certain. Booba also received multiple antibiotics to see if they will help.

Booba’s best chance for survival is to eat healthy, sleep in a clean environment, and get as much TLC as possible.

Feeling safe and loved can go a long way towards better health! Booba was also put on a special diet to boost his immune system.

Booba is living at DoggyLand Family’s rescue center where he will continue to get the best care possible.

His rescue was recent so we will continue to pray for his recovery. Can you pray too?

Lucky Elderly Man Is Greeted Every Day By A “Friend” Who Crawls Out Of The Ice:

We’ve all seen some unique and unlikely friendships over the years, but this one here may take the cake!

One day, a starving otter appeared at an elderly man’s door wanting some food. Ever since, Seppo Laamanen, 65, and Iivari the otter have been inseparable best friends.

Source: StoryTrender/YouTube

It all started when Seppo fed worms and fish to the small and malnourished otter who was clearly looking for food.

After that, the friendly animal repaid the kindness by visiting the man at his home in Punkaharju in easter Finland. This was the start of something special.

There’s no way Seppo could’ve ever imagined it’d all lead to this. This adorably unique friendship is one for the ages, and it’s something you have to see to believe.

There’s nothing like the bond between two friends regardless of the species! 🙂

10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet

Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.

While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.

These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.

1) Akita

When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.

2) Boxer

This working dog is smart, full of energy, and oh so loyal to their family. They get along great with kids and have an innate instinct to protect their pack. He’s a watchdog with a heart of gold who oozes dedication to his owner.

3) Skye Terrier

Known as the “small dog with the big ears,” this adorable breed hails from the Scottish Isle of Skye, hence the name. Whether you live in the city or the country, this small dog with a big personality is steadfast in snuggling, playtime, and remaining loyal to his owners.

4) Beagle

This merry hound is friendly, curious and incredibly loyal. While he doesn’t mind the occasional couch potato time, this spunky pooch is energetic and merry. A fun fact about this hound: the breed standard is for 13 inches and under and another in the 13-15 inch category. No matter how you size him, these adorable dogs just want to cling to you.

5) Shar-Pei

This wrinkly non-sporting breed is standoffish to strangers but very loyal to his owner. His ancient Chinese roots are part of the charm of the Shar-Pei. Regal, strong, and smart, if you want a BFF for life, this loose-skinned pooch may be the right choice for you.
