We Found A Poor Dog Bound With A Fishing Line, We Saved Her And Helped Her Heal

It is a wonder that little Lucy is alive today. Rescued around 3 months ago, Lucy was found at a structure site in Bali where many dogs lived but continued to go ‘missing’.

When her rescuer identified Lucy, she was in shock. The tiny pup had a fishing wire tied tightly around her snout– a telltale sign that she had actually been caught for the canine meat trade and will be sold and killed for food. Acting quickly, Lucy’s rescuer took her to the vet to get medical care.

This is Lucy, she was found with a fishing line around her snout that had cut deeply right into it

It’s suspected the poor puppy was meant for the horrible and sadistic meat farms

Lucy was then brought to the vet, the fishing line was eliminated, and she was finally safe, however not out of the woods yet. The vets gave her a 50/50 chance of surviving since she had a serious disease called parvovirus

Lastly, Lucy remained in a safe place. However, she had not been even nearly out of the woods. She was identified with the deadly parvovirus and the vets gave her a 50/50 chance of surviving. It was touch and go for a couple of days there, but after 2 weeks, Lucy finally began to show signs of recovery and had the ability to be moved right into foster care.

After just 1 day, she began acting strangely and this moment she tested positive for distemper– as if she had not been through enough. Although Lucy was solid, we didn’t believe she would make it. Her immune system had been ravaged by the parvovirus and she was already skin and bones when we found her.

After a lot of hard work and a bunch of various other sicknesses, Lucy started to heal, but really did not trust humans at all

However she fought. With no appetite, we syringe fed her bone broth every few hrs and provided her all the love and treatment we could. Again, very slowly, Lucy made a full physical recovery and currently was ready to start her emotional recovery journey.

From the min she was rescued, she was quiet and never made eye contact with anybody. She would certainly huddle in the corner of her crate and stay there for hrs, only emerging to go to the bathroom. The injury she should have endured prior to we found her was big– she had absolutely no trust for people.

Slowly but certainly, Lucy started to recover from her trauma with a lot of help from veterinarians, foster parents and many other people

Over the past couple of months, Lucy has actually been living with Mission Paws’ ible’s creator, Prue, and has actually made incredible progress. She is still careful, but day by day, she is turning back right into a pleased and playful little dog. She enjoys zoomies with her fellow paw fwends and loves basking in the sun. Lucy also jumps up onto the couch and sleeps cuddled up with her buddies– something she would never ever do when she first arrived.

And began to trust people and various other animals again

Lucy is an example of just how a little bit of patience and a whole lot of love goes a long way. She has a bright and happy future ahead of her and is seeking her forever home. Mission Paws’ ible is currently increasing funds to build The Healing Centre.

This center will give dogs like Lucy a proper possibility to recover and a peaceful place to decompress. Treatments will include all-natural raw diets, daily healing oil massages for hairless hounds, animal therapy music, one-on-one interaction with people, and great deals of sunlight to boost their vitamin D.

Lucy is the perfect example of just how love and patience goes a long way and can save a life
