Bron had been shackled for eight years, surrounded by grief and anguish, but all changed in a moment. Bron had spent his entire childhood enslaved on a Spanish plantation. The animal’s fragile physique had a succession of injuries that were never treated owing to ignorance, exhibiting symptoms that he had been abused until he was finally discovered by volunteers from Animal Rescue Spain.
On its Facebook page, the group stated:
“We’d want to present Bron to you.” This enormous man was about to be sacrificed after 8 years as a guard dog, shackled with a punishment chain whose spikes were already implanted in his neck. So we made the decision to save him, and he is now being readied for a new life.
“However, Bron will need a lot of patience with his ailments, which aren’t simply physical.”
A member of the group, Pilar Delgado, told The Dodo:
“Bron is one of the most challenging situations we’ve worked on. He would run away roaring when we initially approached him.”
Bron let his guard down even after he was rescued and carried to safety, but the rescuers never stopped attempting to earn his confidence, and his efforts paid off.
Bron eventually allowed himself to be touched by what may have been the first touch he had ever received in a poignant moment recorded on tape.
Bron was suddenly a loved dog after his first taste of human warmth and care, but assisting him through all those years of trauma was an equally longer path.
Bron has been rescued for almost a year and has spent the majority of that time working with a professional dog trainer to prepare him for a permanent home.
Pilar expressed herself as follows:
“He’s a happy dog, but he still has a long way to go.” Despite the hardships, Bron’s heart still hopes that he will be able to spend the rest of his days with his family ».
