Dog Who’s Been Chained Up For 8 Years Is About To Be Petted For The First Time

Bron had spent his entire life chained up on a farm in Spain. He was discovered by Animal Rescue España who couldn’t believe the number of untreated injuries as a result of the severe neglect. For eight years, this was all he knew.

Here he is about to be petted for what is most likely the very first time in his life. What a moment.

“After many years as a dog guard, tied with a chain of punishment whose spikes had already embedded in his neck, he was to be sacrificed. So we decided to save him and since then he’s in treatment for his fears,” Animal Rescue España said on their Facebook page. “His heart has many hard scars to erase.”

Bron has since been adopted, but you can help out more dogs like him even if you aren’t in Spain. Visit the Animal Rescue España website to make a donation.
