The puppy was suffering from distemper and recognized she was dying. When she saw somebody passing by, she asked for help one last time.
Distemper is one of the leading causes of death among unvaccinated street dogs. This infectious virus, which targets the breathing, gastrointestinal and central nervous systems of dogs, is often deadly.
In this video, we watch Animal Help Unlimited staff try to rescue a young homeless young puppy suffering from distemper.
The dog had actually been infected for weeks but had no treatment because the baby was homeless. She was eventually found collapsed by a roadside, wagging her tail in the hopes of seeking rescue.
The rescue team realized the canine was dying, but they intended to provide it a possibility to recover. She got intensive care for 2 week, which included antibiotics and fluids.
In spite of her excruciating discomfort, the dog was grateful to have humans look after her for the first time in her life.
She was gradually getting better every day! It was a magical moment for the grooming team when the puppy restored the strength to fit on all fours and walk again!
She was so overjoyed at her victory that she rushed towards her rescuers and hugged them tightly. Her bright smiles and unlimited waving of her tail brightened our day!
To see just how the rescue crew struggled against all chances to rescue this young puppy’s life, watch the video below.
