When dog-lover Sean McCormack first saw Tiny on a dirty street in Taiwan, he didn’t know what to think. Judging by the dog’s awful condition, it seemed he left in the street to die. His skin was ravaged by a terrible case of mange, he was emaciated and so neglected, he didn’t seem to care about living. But then Sean took him in and found him help. What happened next is a must-see transformation.
Tiny was found in the street after he had been abandoned in Taiwan.
His mange and emaciation were so extreme, his rescuers couldn’t even tell what breed he was.
Tiny was brought in by British ex-patriot, Sean. He originally thought that the dog may have been a Mastiff.
As it turns out, he was a beautiful Rottweiler. He was also an angel, according to his caretakers. Tiny became one of the sweetest animals at the sanctuary.
Dr. Yang at YangMing Veterinary Hospital in Taipei helped treat Tiny’s aggressive disease and depression.
Not only did he transform, but he made such a recovery he was crowned the grand champion at the RSPCA’s dog show.
Once he was fully healed, Tiny competed in RSCPA’s Ruffs, an alternative dog show to the famous Crufts. Instead of judging dogs on “perfect” breed standards, the Ruffs celebrate what is imperfect about the pets we adore. Tiny was crowned the Grand Champion of Ruffs 2014. Tiny’s journey shows that euthanizing animals to “end their suffering” isn’t always the right call. Sometimes, these animals just need medical attention, love and patience. It might not always happen for animals in desperate need of help, but stories like Tiny’s should give us hope. Thank you to Sean and the staff in Taiwan that helped Tiny come back from death’s door!
