A little dachshund was rescued after being thrown from a moving vehicle and left in the freezing snow.
The rescue took place when a woman named Natasha was driving and noticed someone throw a trash bag out of a moving car. She didn’t think much of it, but then she saw the bag begin to move.
After closer examination, Natasha discovered that it wasn’t a trash bag that’d been dumped from the car at all, but a little dog!
It was a cold winter day, and Natasha knew she couldn’t leave the poor dog to fend for itself. Daschunds don’t have the same ability to stay warm in cold temperatures as other dog breeds, according to Wag Walker Sarah Jeter. Jeter noted, “Because of their small stature and thin hair, they’re more prone to getting cold, damp, and uncomfortable than many other breeds of dog.”

Thankfully, the little pup gladly went with Natasha and she was able to get him out of the weather and into the warmth and safety of her home.
Natasha named the dog Sanya, and it could’ve been a happy ending for the two, but Sanya began to urinate blood. Unsure what else to do, Natasha rushed the small dog to the veterinarian where they performed exams to determine the cause of blood in his urine.
After an endoscopy, Sanya was officially diagnosed with a gastric ulcer, an open sore on the lining of his stomach.
Sanya began experiencing more severe symptoms, such as bloody diarrhea and vomiting. Thankfully, the veterinarian was able to help him recover and the little pup was eventually cleared to go home with Natasha to finish treatment.
It wasn’t long before Sanya was back to himself, and Natasha got to see just how energetic and loving he really was!
She explained that she plans to keep him with her other pets and give him the loving forever home he deserves.
