Dog Who Was Chained Up In The Yard For Years Didn’t Know What Inside Felt Like

Cane loves humans, but humans have not always loved him back. The sweet dog was chained to a tree outside in the yard in North Carolina a few years ago and forced to stay there ever since, come rain or shine.

Animal lover Jamie Spencer did all she could to help when she heard about Cane's situation, such as buy a dog house, reports The Dodo. Sadly, she could never take Cane home with her.

 

In July the owner of the house where Cane was chained up died, and the new owners said to Spencer that it was her responsibility to do something about the dog.

She knew that now was her chance to make a real difference in this pup's life. He never deserved to stay chained up outside for years – he deserved a warm, loving home with a bed and the freedom to walk around.

 

Spencer had previously worked with the nonprofit organisation Animal Adoption League, so she contacted them to help with Cane's medical bills, treatment and release. It wasn't an easy task because the poor dog was suffering from a number of health problems after being outside for such a long time, and he was very nervous and shaken up for the same reason.

Kari Newton from the organisation told The Dodo:

 

The most heartbreaking issue at hand was that Cane was in a lot of pain and loved humans.

 

Thankfully, everything came together at the end of September. A foster home opened up in Virginia and volunteers got together to give the Pit bull a bath and transport him to his new home.

He was finally unchained, and the feeling of freedom after so long must have been intoxicating. He then got a new name – he is now called Chance, because he was getting a second chance at life.

 

There is still a long road before his skin, teeth and other problems are fixed. He needs to be neutered and have his heartworm treated, too.

As soon as he's well enough, one lucky family will be able to adopt this brave boy. His foster mom, Alissa Campbell, said he's adjusting well:

 

The tail just keeps wagging, and it looks as though he is smiling. He just wants love.

Spencer is over the moon that the dog she once was so worried about is now doing better. She said:

 

It makes me cry. I don't have to worry about him anymore.

9/28/2106 We are desperate to get Cane out of this awful situation in which he has lived his entire life. His owner has abandoned him on a property and the neighbors have been feeding him. His days are numbered as there are threats to have animal control called to pick him up. Cane is also sick, covered in fleas and fly bites. We are currently, raising funds for his medical treatment and neutering, but we desperately need the support of an experienced 501c Rescue. Cane has no place to go after he goes to the vet, so we need a confident Rescue to help place Cane in foster care. Currently, he will need to be in a home with no other animals. We are looking for a miracle, but with a little hard work, miracles can happen. Please help give Cane a chance. Approx: 5-6 years old, White Pitbull or Staffordshire Terrier, approx: 50lbs, needs vetting and rescue, located near Charlotte, NC but can be transported to safety and the right environment.
