Hero was found wandering the streets of an Albanian city completely alone and with injuries that were terrifying to his rescuers. The eight-year-old dog was left maimed and blind after his eyes were gouged out in an outrageous act of cruelty. Thankfully, Hero was spotted and brought to Blind Dog Rescue UK, a charity that rescues blind and partially-sighted dogs throughout Europe.

Hero finally found a safe home at the Halfway Home Dog Rescue, near Swinderby, Lincolnshire Live reports. Unfortunately, it turns out that his terrible injury would not be the last thing he had to struggle through. Since his arrival at the rescue, Hero’s health has been getting worse, and he was eventually diagnosed with cancer.

In spite of everything that had happened to Hero, a member of his foster family said that he remained “the kindest most loving dog you could ever imagine.”


“I find it hard to believe even after all the horrific pain and suffering he has gone through, that he still wants to be with people.”


He is currently undergoing blood tests and receiving regular chemotherapy. Halfway Home is now seeking donations to pay for Hero’s treatment, which amounts to around $490 a week. Most importantly, the outlook for the pup is now good – and he still has a chance to be a healthy dog again.

“He may have no eyes, and he may have been treated so badly, but this dog has spirit and as long as we support him, he will have his chance,” the little hero’s foster carer shared.


As was emphasized by Val Hosegood who runs Halfway Home, Hero had “suffered a vicious attack.” Unfortunately, the person who committed the crime of abusing the dog and causing him so much suffering is still not identified and, as such, a threat to more animals and to people. This act of animal cruelty has to be taken seriously – and the local officials need to make a serious effort to find and prosecute the abuser.
