The conflict started about seven months ago when Russia invaded neighboring Ukraine. Millions of people have since fled the war-torn country. At the same time, many animals were abandoned.
He was tied and abandoned, as shown in pictures from the Love Furry Friends YouTube channel, before being found by animal enthusiasts.
Two ladies in the video make eye contact with the chained dog, whose physique is a clear indication that it has been a while since he last had a satisfying meal.
He threw himself on the tin can he had brought with him, loving it. His ribs protrude from his body. They also saw the chain around his neck hurt his fur.
Toby, the dog, was permitted to visit the veterinarian, where the appropriate examinations were performed. This cute Ukrainian puppy is now seeking for a family, and we are crossing our fingers that he will succeed!
“At the moment, there are special regulations for pets traveling with their displaced Ukrainian owners. The Swedish Agriculture Council notes that this implies “we analyze on a case-by-case basis what steps are needed. The evaluations are largely about the risk of the animal transmitting rabies and how that risk should be controlled so that human or animal health in Sweden is not at risk.
There are several rabies cases each year in both dogs and cats in Ukraine, a nation with a high risk for the disease.
We truly hope that a new home is found for this wonderful little puppy as soon as possible! Watch video as below:
