When Stray Paws got the call regarding a dog that had been laying in the snow for 2 days, they had no idea how she got there. Was she there because she was sick, or hurt, had she been in an accident?
Although they didn’t know why the canine was there, they knew they needed to hurry to save her. When they showed up, they saw that the freezing puppy was almost buried alive. A blanket of snow partially covered her body, and it was a miracle that she was breathing because the temperatures were below freezing.
How the dog had actually survived two days in freezing weather is anybody’s guess. She can hardly move and had to be in fantastic pain. In spite of this, she enabled rescuers to put her in a kennel so they can take her to the vet.
They named her Snow White, a best name for a freezing girl. When at the veterinarian, they began to attempt to warm up her tiny body with IV infusions. The veterinarian thought her age to only be about three years old.
Her body temperature was only 32.9 ° C, the typical temperature would be 38 ° C. She didn’t weigh a lot at all, so she really did not have much protection from the freezing elements she was shed in. She really did not have tags, and nobody knew her, so they believe she was abandoned.
They did whatever they can for the sweet little dog. Once they got her body temperature up, it took her some time to be able to walk on her paws once again. However by some miracle she survived and by day two, had the ability to walk around and even go outside.
However despite her progress, she wasn’t out of the woods yet. Snow White had a lengthy road to healing since she also got ill. It took her some time and medication but 3 months after she was drawn from the snow, she finally had a forever home of her own where she was thriving and even had doggy friends.
Sadly, dogs like Snow White are abandoned all the time. However thankfully, there are individuals like the rescuers at Stray Paws who do all they can to help. They hold true heroes who function tirelessly to save as many canines as they can.
We wish you enjoyed getting to see her happy ending. She is such a sweet, happy girl in spite of all she went through. It warms the heart to see her doing so well with her new family.
As constantly, please share her story with your friends.
