This puppy was found collapsed on the side of the road, unable to get up on her own. She was extremely emaciated, wounded, and in very poor health. India’s Animal Aid Unlimited came to the rescue and saved this pup, who most likely would’ve died soon after. She was completely unable to get up and barely moved as rescuers prepared to take her back to their facility.
The most amazing part, however, was that even though she couldn’t get up, her tail was still wagging! Despite what she had been through, she was a very happy dog, and her resiliency and will to live was amazing!
Even as wounded as she was, she didn’t surprise anybody by surviving and improving! We all know that a dog with that much joy and will to live has the ability to come back from some of the worst disasters. Within a few weeks, she was walking around on her own again.
The rescuers treated her for canine distemper, a viral disease that dogs can get which causes fever, coughing, and catarrh. This disease is usually fatal, but miraculously, the treatments worked well and she was back to looking and acting like a dog in no time! All it took was some antibiotics, IV fluids, and a good dose of tender loving care to get this little girl back on her feet again.
Now this pup is safe at Animal Aid’s sanctuary and will never have to worry about getting that sick ever again. She will always feel loved!
