A donkey named Pippin went through various trials during fifteen years of his life and, having been in a dozen different families, the animal never received good attitude.
The donkey’s eyes were dull, devoid of any joy or interest. Even when he saw strangers, he did not change the expression of his eyes, remaining so indifferent to everything that was happening around.
One look was enough to realise how miserable, lonely and depressed Pippin was. Rescuers learned about the donkey from an employee at a pet food store. They arrived at the place where they kept the donkey.
Pippin was in a small enclosure. He was dirty and slightly injured. The owner of the donkey said that the donkey was injured when he tried to run, but was trapped under the gate. One of the rescuers, Laura, admitted that she felt very sorry for the donkey.
From the melancholy and submissiveness of the animal, it was clear how it was treated. The donkey was taken to the Alberto Terrera shelter.
Pippin was very timid and cautious. The animal ran away when the shelter staff wanted to stroke or at least touch him. The donkey thought that they wanted to hit or harm him. The owner of the shelter, Alberto, fell in love with the unfortunate donkey and began to come every day with his son and at first only talk to the donkey.
After a while, Pippin allowed Alberto to touch him. Now the donkey revives at the appearance of his friends and demands kisses and hugs from them.
Pippin loves to eat apples, which have become his new treat at the orphanage. He even made friends with other animals of the orphanage. He has a friend cow!
