A woman, with a heart of gold, came across a puppy that was too weak to move. She saw that he had a mom that was watching over him but the mother was in bad shape too, writes ilovemydogsomuch
The puppy was rail thin and riddled with mange. He was weak and laying on the sidewalk.
The kind woman watched as he struggled to get up and walk to his mom who had gathered scraps of food for him to eat. Refusing to leave him like that, the woman wrapped him in a blanket and took him to the vet. The vet was astounded. His condition was terrible. The vet confirmed he had mange as well as scabies. Poor baby!
He received pain medication and antibiotics through an IV. He had an infection caused by the mange, so his fever needed to be brought down. He needed to rest in a warm, dry environment. Sleep was a priority now. With time, the puppy improved, but it was a slow process. He also improved his appetite and was able to get vaccinated.
Once he was stable enough, he was started on treatment for mange and scabies. He spent so much energy scratching his little body. The treatment would make all the difference in the world! Knowing he would pull through, they gave the deserving pup a name, Indie.
Indie, though still suffering, showed his gratitude for being so well-cared for. He gave his new human friend who saved his life subtle tail wags and tiny kisses. She loved it. It was moments like this that made all her efforts worth it!
Indie’s rescuer’s heart broke the most when she found out that he and his mother had a real owner. They were allowed to live on the streets and came home whenever they wanted. No medical care was provided and they received infrequent feedings.
But now Indie’s suffering was a thing of the past. His transformation is slow but it is nothing short of a miracle. The rescuer went back and helped mom too! You have to see Indie now. He still has a long road ahead but he’s more energetic and his fur is coming in nicely. This ‘broken puppy’ is now whole thanks to a rescuer who had faith in him. You can’t miss the full story.
