Sad Dog In Landfill Has His Whole Life Changed From This Human.

Dogs are as adorable as they are loyal, which is why it’s so heartbreaking to hear there are so many without a home. There’s no animal on this Earth that can provide as much love and companionship to a human than a dog. Once they enter your life, a dog is no longer just a friend. It becomes a part of your family. But not every dog in the world is lucky enough to live in a luxurious home with a loving, supportive family. Some dogs struggle to survive in terrible conditions, the way Kratos, a Kangal Shepherd, has in Corum, Turkey.

This is Kratos, and he has every reason to look so glum given that his home was a landfill in Turkey.

Crystal Carson, the cofounder of Rescuers Without Borders, was heartbroken when she first laid eyes on the photo of the pooch. He was living in such deplorable conditions and was practically skin and bones.

Carson was able to see the dog’s spine and ribs, but he looked very old, and his coat seemed unhealthy.

It turns out that Kratos had mange, a condition that caused him to lose a lot of his fur. He also looked horribly depressed. Kangal dogs are considered golden in Turkey, but ironically, many of them are living in less than stellar conditions.

Carson thought she had seen everything, but Kratos' photo tugged at her heartstrings and haunted her.

Without realizing it, Kratos’ sad eyes became a cry for help, and Carson was such a kind human that she couldn’t ignore his plea. Something about Kratos made Carson eager to help the dog out, but he wasn’t the only one in need of rescuing.

The landfill in Corum is home to hundreds of other dogs who use this area to survive one more day.

Pups of all ages rely on this landfill for food. They also use the garbage as a means to stay warm when the temperature drops. But for the most part, the only thing dogs like this one want is to find a forever home.

Sadly, there are so many homeless dogs in this landfill, that rescuing all of them has become a challenge.

In 2017, Carson and her friends created Rescuers Without Borders to provide these wayward dogs the medical care and the food they so desperately needed. They even tried finding them homes, but the organization’s resources are limited.
