Chained for life
We cannot even imagine the pain of being locked in chains
all our lives but this dog named Alex does. It is normal to get agitated and
aggressive and even Alex's owner couldn't touch him so he called Humane Society
to take the aggressive dog away. It was a seriously difficult rescue and
getting Alex off the chains was a big risk. However, everyone was shocked to
see that as soon as the dog was freed from the chains, he transformed into a
completely different dog.
This video shows the change in Alex that came as soon as he was freed from the chains. All that was needed to make him a loving and calm dog was to give him his freedom with a bit of love. The ultimate truth was unfolded later that the guy who owned Alex, Steve Markwell was an animal abuser and he was also convicted of charity fraud by Washington State AG. The video has a happy ending that Alex was adopted by Ron Smith who gives him a loving family and all that he needs.
This sailor crew had no idea that they were about to be involved in a dog rescue mission that would change their lives forever and this experience would be imprinted on their memories for years to come. They were pushing through some thick ice in Volga River in Russia when they saw a brown speck splashing around in the slush. Curiosity made them get closer to it and when they did, they were shocked to find out that the speck was actually a dog.
The poor dog was tired to death and was clinging to the ice and he was a few seconds away from hypothermia or drowning to death. If you are annoyed about the boat approaching the boat extra slowly, that's just to make sure that the dog doesn't break the ice. One of the sailors grabbed the dog and took him to safety but the dog is still in deep shock. There is no news as to how did he get there in the first place but the video of the dog rescue is just amazing.
