When a dog is terribly treated and has actually faced many challenges, there comes a point where giving up seems to make sense.
For one dog, death was close. She was on her own starving to death. They found her in the middle of an area too weak to stand. But although she had actually given up, they were not giving up on her.
After rescuing the canine, they called her Woman. She was given the medical center for urgent care. She was skin and bones and depressed by her hard life. Her expression said so a lot. Her eyes showed her pain which she was just too tired to go on.
After her initial exam, the medical team identified her with a parasitic infection that had actually ravaged her joints. With x-rays and great deals of blood work, they came up with a treatment plan. She needed a lot of aid, medicine, and great nutrition. But mainly, she needed to feel safe and loved so she might fight to live.
With time and love, Woman made an incredible transformation. The medical staff spared nothing to get her as healthy as possible. Her mange was treated, she was provided IV antibiotics and a high-calorie diet. Lady began to believe in her new human friends, and in herself.
Her fur grew in wonderfully and her whole demeanor changed. She even had some pep in her step! Her rescuers understand that it will certainly take time for her to totally heal. She’s hesitant of certain people. But each day she learns more and more.
Lady has life in her eyes now. She believes in herself. She resembles so many other dogs that had given up but were rescued just in time. Her tale is inspiring as is her life. We are so grateful that pet rescuers remain to work to give dogs like Lady a second chance.
