A stray dog in India had given up hope in life that he decided to find a pit where he could stay hidden from the rest of the world until his death. What’s horrifying about his case is that his face is missing.
Rescue organization Animal Aid Unlimited found the dog they named Kalu at a construction site with his face infested with maggots. The open wound also exposed a portion of his skull, that you can’t help but wonder how in the world he managed to survive his ordeal.

Kalu decides to retreat to a hole until he dies.
Rescuers found him…
Kalu’s dreadful condition made the rescuers think that there’s no other choice left but to put him down.
But there’s just something about Kalu that made the group believe he deserves a second chance. So the rescue group began treating what they consider as the “most heartbreaking wound” ever.
They killed the maggots, applied bandaged to his entire face and sedated him to thoroughly clean the facial surface.
As you can see in the picture, Kalu’s eyes seem to have disappeared.
Three days after he was picked up and treated, Kalu ate his first meal.
Little by little, Kalu’s condition improved.
On the fifth day, one eye surprisingly appeared!
More cleaning and bandaging of his face… Kalu’s treatment went on for three months.
And then . . . THIS!
Boy does he have a sweet face!
Look at that smile. . . he looks genuinely happy!
Here’s Kalu with his new friends!
