Alex was ready to give up. He was severely malnourished, dehydrated, and exhausted, and maggots infested his wounds.
He was on his deathbed. The worst part was that he was stuck in a remote location on the side of a road, with no way of escaping on his own. He was stuck because he wore a collar with a long chain. To make matters worse, he was completely indistinguishable from the road. He had only a remote chance of being rescued in time.
But little did he know that his life was about to improve dramatically and that his past would no longer haunt him. A person named Alex (after whom the pup is named) noticed the fading pup while cleaning the area.
