What if you were abandoned by the people who you love and trust the most? Left on the roadside to fend for yourself? Anyone would feel broken-hearted, downtrodden, and oppressed. Such is the case of a Greyhound which Viktor Larkhill discovered in an industrial area in the outskirts of town. The poor Greyhound was tied to a post using metal wire with no food and water. He was abandoned under the heat of the baking sun. He was all skin and bones when he greeted Viktor with much suspicion.
Viktor and his team set off to unbound the animal from his harness. They gave him food, which he hungrily devoured. It must have been days since he last ate!
Then the dog was sent to a facility for his bath. The poor animal is terrified and will not get off the vehicle. Where are they taking him? What will they do to him? Is this a trap? After some prodding, the Greyhound would not budge, and one of the rescuers decided to carry him instead.
During bath time, the rescuer comforted the terror-stricken canine with kind and loving words as she strokes his back. Still unable to trust anyone, the heartbroken dog shivers and hides his tails between his legs. He was toweled off, dried, and he received more loving strokes, yet he still could not bring himself to be emotionally attached to his new friends.
The Greyhound was given a new home. Viktor gave him a special space of his own, and the dog still could not seem to accept all the love given to him. But one day, while Viktor was lying on the sofa, the Greyhound finally rested his head on his lap. It was a quick gesture, but enough to know that he finally found peace in Viktor.
