Blossom, the dog, was discovered by an OrphanPet volunteer in Greece. She had been a stray for weeks, if not months, and had been wandering the streets. The poor puppy was in appalling condition.
Her tail had a chain wire lodged in it that had been there for a long time. Her tail grew enormously bloated as a result of the chain being so firmly wrapped around it.
She was also coated in thousands of ticks, which made matters worse. They performed a blood test and discovered that her blood was extremely thin as a result of the tick bites. She wouldn’t have lasted much longer if they hadn’t saved her. Blossom’s time was running short, and they realized they needed to act quickly to assist her.
They gave her a blood transfusion and ended up having to amputate her tail after bringing her in. They worked diligently and methodically to remove as many ticks as they could one by one, but it took them nearly a week to remove every single dead tick.
Her transformation is absolutely mind-blowing. She is now very healthy and has made new doggy friends along the way. And best of all? She was adopted!
She’s now settled into her forever home and relishing her second shot at life. She would not have lived if this volunteer hadn’t found her and brought her in. Thank heavens for OrphanPet’s kind rescuers!
