This Dog’s New Rodent Friends
You would not know from watching this video what hardship this dog has seen.
This dog was rescued from the Egyptian government’s cruel and inhumane stray animal population policies. They shoot or use strychnine on the dogs to help control the population, and Egyptians themselves, sadly mistreat the dogs in the mistaken notion spread by the government that they spread disease.
This dog is a Baladi, a breed native to Egypt, but he has been far divorced from the circumstances that caused him pain. Here and now, here he is being groomed and playing with some adorable little rodents, two Patagonian maras.
