Every morning while eating her morning meal, a neglected dog is joined by a unique visitor.
Warm your heart video shows Graycie and her caretaker, Dr. Andy Mathis, eating out of metal dog bowls together in her enclosure.
Specialists at this animal shelter in Georgia describe someone who found Graycie on the side of a dirt roadway and wanted to get her help.
Doctors could bring her back to a healthier state but noticed she seemed scared of eating by herself. So Dr. Mathis took a different approach to change that by eating with the dog.
Dr. Mathis treats Graycie with such respect and kindness, showing her that it’s okay to dig in and enjoy her meal. He even takes his breakfast into the kennel with him, eating out a metal dog dish to show her that they are equals.
Check out the whole story and the touching video below as Dr. Mathis sits down and eats a morning meal with Graycie. He is sitting inside her kennel in an attempt to encourage her to eat breakfast.
The long road to recovery
Graycie, the pit bull, was found dropped off on a dirt roadway. Starving, hypothermic, and suffering from vaginal prolapse, Graycie fell into the hands of Dr. Andy Mathis in Elberton, Georgia.
Dr. Mathis knew he had two alternatives — he could either try to save her or put her to sleep. Knowing the odds were stacked against her, he selected the first.
Graycie improved every day. She started eating better and gaining weight. She became more active, and her gums returned to standard color. Graycie is a miracle.
She needs more time to heal emotionally and physically. Dr. Mathis looks forward to the time Graycie is ready to be adopted into a forever home. In the meantime, she’s in great hands.
Watch Dr. Andy Mathis secure himself in the kennel and eat breakfast next to Graycie to keep her from being alone.Make sure you watch what goes on when he begins chewing. Graycie’s reaction to her savior’s incredible action is priceless and heartwarming.
