Animal Aid Unlimited, a rescue organization in India, received word of a severely injured dog who had given up hope - and had found a hole where he could quietly wait to die.

The poor dog, later named Kalu, was missing a huge section of his face, and the wound was infected and just overall horrible. It was one of the worst animal injuries the very active rescue team had ever seen.

Rescuers were able to get Kalu out of the hole and to safety. Despite their hope, everyone knew that their best option might be to put him down.

"But something in his spirit convinced us to give him a chance," Animal Aid Unlimited wrote in their rescue video. And so, against all odds, they began to treat Kalu.

A huge part of the pup's skull was exposed, and it seemed that his eyes were completely gone. They treated and bandaged his wounds, and then all that was really left to do was wait.
