Street Dog Was Ready To Give Up, Until Someone Gave Him A Reason To Live

Everyone needs a little help sometimes.

Animal Aid Unlimited, a rescue group in India, heard about a senior dog who had been pulled out of a sewer by a kind passerby, and then refused to move.

The poor dog had a wound near his tail, but was likely unable to walk because of how dehydrated he was - and how defeated he felt.

"We couldn't find any injuries on his legs, but he was unable to stand," the rescue group wrote in a video.

Rescuers quickly warmed the pup up with a soft blanket ...

... and brought him to be cleaned up and treated.

After tending to his wound, rescuers gave the dog much-needed food and water, and let him rest ...

... and slowly but surely, he began to stand again. A little love was apparently all he needed to find his strength again.

After a month of healing time, the senior dog wasn't only walking again - he was running.

It just goes to show that sometimes all you need is someone to love and believe in you.
