Merlin was in the worst state when he arrived at Let’s Adopt! International. He wandered the streets of Spain for months, trying to find something to eat and drink. Lots of people saw him, but he received no help. No one cared.
The poor dog transferred from the busy city roads to the empty fields in the county. As he struggled to survive, his body started to fall into pieces. He got ill, and without help, his condition got worse.
Merlin lost almost all of his fur. He had scabs all over his body. His infected skin hardened, and his sad eyes filled with pus. Instead of helping, people threw stones at him.
When Let’s Adopt! International received the call, Viktor Larkhill quickly responded. He assembled his entire team and drove straight to the said location. When the rescuers saw the dog, they couldn’t believe their eyes. They thought it was too late, but they had to try either way.
The rescuers immediately took Merlin to the hospital, and even the vets were astonished. With their hearts broken, they quickly started his treatment. They gave him a soothing bath and offered him a full meal.
Merlin was terribly ill, and he was too weak to even stand on his own. His case was complex, yet, his rescue friends refused to give up. They swear to do everything in their power to help him.
“It took months of treatment, and it’s very difficult,” said Viktor. “We gave him treats, and most importantly, caring words. When an animal is at the hospital, it is important for them to feel loved, and that the people there are their friends.”
Soon, Merlin received his clean bill of health. His new mom, Lavaña, is a dear friend of Viktor’s. She’s been involved with the rescue organization for many years now, and no other person can provide the home Merlin deserves other than her.
