Today I watched a video about a senior dog named Mufasa. Mufasa was found at a water treatment plant, alone, dirty, scared and hungry. Luckily, a rescue group named: Hope for Paws, came to Mufasa's rescue. At first the video is truly heartbreaking and then so healing as you watch this dog go from a scraggly throw away to a cuddly and lovable boy.
No one will probably know how he ended up there, however, Mufasa was at the water treatment plant long enough for the staff of the treatment plant to become concerned about him wandering among the chemically treated water in the open tanks. I can imagine that it was a difficult balance to decide how to rescue him while keeping him calm so he didn’t bolt blindly into an open, chemically treated water tank trying to escape his saviors.
When Mufasa maneuvered himself next to a staircase, his rescuers finally had a safe way of capturing him and getting him to safety. Watching the video, I honestly forgot to breathe while I waited for him to be saved!
According to the rescue site, Mufasa is now a happy, beautiful boy that is looking for a home. I only wish I had space for him, he so deserves a happy home for his golden years. This video is a must watch!
