As dog owners, we treat our dogs as part of our family. Although dogs are animals, we, as responsible dog owners, treat them like a person. In fact, some people would even say that they trust dogs more than they trust human beings.
Loyalty, genuine friendship, and the protective nature of dogs are the things that make people want to adopt one as part of their family. However, some people take advantage of the dog’s traits and end up treating the dogs inhumanely. Dogs may be animals, but they have feelings and emotional needs as well.
Theoklitos Proestakis is a world-famous dog rescuer. He’s known for founding an animal rescue organization called Takis Shelter, and he’s also known for his rescue videos that he posts on social media. Theoklitos is a very genuine individual and isn’t afraid to show his emotions and feelings whenever he’s out rescuing dogs.
One rescue that Theoklitos did was for a dog named Louis. A woman called Theoklitos to tell him about a dog that was tied to a tree with a chain with an attached cowbell. When Theoklitos arrived at the location where the dog was kept, he couldn’t believe how horrible the conditions were.
Louis had a heavy chain wrapped around his neck, which was tied to a tree. He had dirty water, and he was also exposed to the harsh environment. Theoklitos freed Louis and found that Louis is a gentle and sweet dog. However, Louis was a little confused about what was going on.
Despite being happy to see Theoklitos, Louis didn’t seem to want to leave. Louis was confused but eventually realized that he was being taken to a better place. Just as Theoklitos got Louis into his car, another vehicle came and stopped. When Theoklitos asked if the man had anything to do with the dog chained to a tree, the man admitted that he was responsible for Louis and only did so to scare other dogs away to protect his sheep.
Takis warned the man that he will call the police if he finds him with another dog to replace Louis in the tree. Thanks to Takis, Louis is now free and happily playing with the other dogs at Takis Shelter. Here’s a heartwarming video showing Theoklitos rescuing Louis.
