Found Starving & Shot In The Chest & Front Paws, Dog Fights For Her Life
Shortcake was found under a shed covered in blood in Jackson, Mississippi by ilovemydogsomuch.com. The dog nearly lost her life to a monster, but she managed to turn things around.
She was found malnourished and obviously neglected before she was shot by the folks at Coco’s House Sanctuary and Rescue. Shortcake was also shot in the feet and the chest.
While surgeons tried to save Shortcake’s feet, the damage to the bone and a lack of blood flow caused the feet to have to be amputated.
On their Facebook page, Coco’s House shared, “We are working on using her legs to move rather than army crawling like she wants to do. Progress every day towards her new legs!“
In addition to laser therapy, bandage changes, and rehabilitation, Shortcake’s physical therapy team is working with her to build strength.
We wish you all the best in your future, Shortcake. She will soon receive prosthetics as she continues her journey to a new life. The video below tells more about this precious dog and shows a clip from one of her therapy sessions.
