For wanderers, finding food, water and shelter is always a challenge. They have to move around the busy world around them, all on their own. One dog was trying to find food when he was hit by a car. Since he had no man to take care of him, all he could do was suffer alone.
An injured dog found an old abandoned house. For five days he was laying in the same place in a dirty old house, crying out for help. His pain was unimaginable. Finally someone heard the dog crying and made a few calls. A local rescuer arrived at the house and couldn’t believe how much the poor puppy was suffering.
The local rescuer stepped up and decided he would take the dog into his care despite his grave condition. What amazed the rescuer was how much pain the dog was in and how long he had gone without food and water… but when he got into the vehicle, he looked at the kind man and smiled. Despite so much pain and uncertainty, the dog realized that he now had a real fighting chance.
When they arrived at the vet, the dog was positive for blood parasites. Fortunately, this could be solved with medication. But the vet and staff were understandably overwhelmed by the dog’s inability to move. Tests revealed that the dog had significant nerve damage and it was not clear if he would ever walk again.
A local rescuer and veterinary staff teamed up to help the dog. Physical therapy was his best option. If they got his body moving, his nerve damage could improve. Through the use of a sling, the vet staff and volunteers work hard to help the dog build up his body again. And the brave little canine warrior loves every minute of it.
Although all this hard work takes a toll on the dog’s body, he doesn’t mind. He has a strong will and is so cute. He was also not used to people paying attention to him. He finally feels special because he has always been special!
When it is said that he was on the verge of death, it is an understatement. He would have died alone in that old house, but now he is surrounded by kind people, excellent medical care, and all the necessary food and water. His future looks bright! He is making more and more progress every day and the vet is sure he will walk again.
