“She showed him to me,” Chour said. “His skin was so bad. His hair was half gone and he was skinny.”
Chour also thinks other street dogs frequently attacked Tchimi — not just for food, but over territory as well. And this would have traumatized the poor dog. He lost trust for everyone — even Chour, who was eager to help him. In fact, the first time Chour approached Tchimi, he tried to bite him.
But Chour was patient — he sat near Tchimi for two hours, and his persistence paid off. Tchimi eventually approached Chour and ate the food he offered him. Chour also gave Tchimi some antibiotic medication in a hotdog. But when Chour tried to touch Tchimi, the dog backed away.
