Arthur was an older dog who had a nice home, but his owner passed away.
Unsure where Arthur should go next, it seemed like the perfect solution when the family housekeeper stepped in and said they’d take the dog.
The problem is, she not only didn’t care for Arthur, but she would also abuse him and refused to feed him. Most of the time, he was tied up outside and forgotten.

It’s a sad situation that far too many dogs find themselves in, but Arthur had something special happen. One of the neighbors who’d been witnessing the abuse saw Arthur being beaten and couldn’t take it anymore. They contacted Sidewalk Specials, a dog rescue, who went to the home to investigate.
They were able to take him in and treat him for mats, fleas, ticks, and a fever. Once healthy, they began looking for a home where he could live happily ever after.

Not only is Arthur in a forever home, he now has a sister and they are loving life together.
It’s amazing to see the before and after of what happened Arthur, and the video shows it all:
