Stray dogs have no other choice but to find food, water, and shelter on their own.
When this pup went looking for some food and a new place to sleep, she became trapped in a fence.
By the time someone saw her, she was already covered in mud and beyond exhausted. She likely tried to free herself for many hours before giving up.
By the time someone finally saw the stray and called for help, she was so lethargic. Nearly every bone in her body showed from starvation.
Villagers came to help her and placed a call immediately to a local rescuer but no one showed up. They had to help the dog on their own. What choice did they have?
The kind people worked hard to pull her frail body from the fence. They then brought her over and put her beneath an umbrella. She needed relief from the sun and heat.
They carefully, and gently, cleaned her up a bit. But when they tried to give him some food, she refused to eat. It wasn’t a good sign. They hope it’s because she’s scared and not too far gone to save.
The dog finally makes it to the vet clinic where she’s given several bags of IV fluids. They also administer antibiotics as well as iron infusions for anemia.
Her poor abdomen is badly bruised from being stuck in the fence. It’ll take time to heal but she’s in good spirits.
It’s as if she understands exactly where she is and that good people are helping her. The sweet dog sheds actual tears of relief. It’s emotional for everyone around her.
The brave dog still has some healing to do. Once she’s closer to recovery, she will be placed in the perfect foster home.
For now, she’s in the animal shelter attached to the clinic. She’s happy and safe!
We are so thankful that kindhearted people saw her when they did! She wouldn’t have survived long. To see her rescue, scroll on down.
