The innocent little puppy was lying on the cold snow, his body trembling with pain and fear. Lonka was only a year old, and he did not understand why he was subjected to such violence.
He lay there, crying and unable to move at all, his little body covered in bruises and cuts. Maggots began to appear and eat away at his weak, dead body.
They took him in their arms, covered him with an old cloak, and prayed to God to save his life. They begged Lunka to hold on a little longer, to endure the pain until dawn. Days turned into weeks, and weeks turned into months.
Lonka went through a long period of treatment, and fought valiantly to recover. But despite the extreme hardship and pain, he never gave up.
Finally, after 150 long days, Lonka was able to run and jump on his feet.
He has overcome the odds, and has shown that with a little love and care, the smallest and weakest of creatures can rise above his surroundings.
He was a survivor, and he will never forget the generosity and compassion that saved his life.
