When rescuer Victor Larkhill and his dedicated team learned about an extremely abused dog named Otto, they immediately arrived to scoop him up from his life of despair. The dog was tossed away by his owner, and he was found hiding in a corner in an attempt to shield himself from humans.
The rescuers somehow brought Otto to the hospital. But the terrorized dog peed every time someone touched him. He would lower his head and never look at his rescuers, and he never moved his body even after days of rescue. The rescuers feared if a “damaged” dog like him could ever open his heart to humans. Consulting animal behaviorists declared that Otto will never be able to live with humans, and must be moved to a sanctuary.
Otto’s shut-down state was a huge hurdle, but the rescuers didn’t want to give up on him so easily. For the next few months, they consistently worked with him to improve his receptiveness toward humans. It was difficult, but Otto was showing progress every day. One day, the sweet dog kissed a caretaker out of the blue! He had finally come out of his shell!
In this emotional video, we see Otto’s remarkable journey of healing his broken soul. By the end, he’s no longer a dog who shudders at the sight of humans. His transformation into a loving and friendly dog is nothing less than a miracle! Otto’s story is a reminder that every abused dog can blossom if he receives love!
