Unfortunately, Stray dogs in Thailand are “invisible”.
It’s hard to tell when one goes missing but for this lucky pooch called Simba, who lives on the streets of Phuket, Thailand.. he had a very kind person who used to feed the homeless dogs of the area noticed he had been missing for three days.
The kind person went straight out to look for Simba but couldn’t find him at first… just when he was about to give up, he heard a cry coming from the bottom of a well.
Poor Simba was there, absolutely terrified.
He called the Soi Dog shelter, and two Animal Rescue Officers rushed to the scene. They managed to save Simba, helping him out of the well with rope.
Dr hope said, who treated Simba, said:
“When Simba arrived at the Soi Dog Hospital, we noticed he had no nails left”
“He’d ripped them all off in his desperate attempts to climb out of his cold, dark prison. The vets immediately treated him with pain relievers and antibiotics, trying to cure the infection that ripping off his nails had caused, and gave him the first meal in three days”.
Simba has since made an incredible recovery in just a few weeks, and the dog shelter is looking after him whilst he recovers.
Simba is now a full of life, happy and healthy 5-year-old dog, he’s ready to give endless love and kisses to his new forever family.
