DAR Animal Rescue heard about a tiny puppy that was all alone, hiding beneath a bench. People had passed her by and posted her photos to Facebook asking for help.
Oddly, however, no one actually stopped and picked her up and helped her themselves. She was so small and covered in mud. It was surprising that she was just left there like that.
One of the rescuers from DAR headed over to help the poor puppy. She couldn’t understand why the baby had just been left to suffer. When she arrived and saw the defenseless little girl crying, she was floored. This puppy was in grave condition. She wouldn’t have survived long.
The rescuer wrapped her in a blanket and put her into the car. It was time to get her to the vet. Once on the examination table, the vet pulled off ticks that had devoured her blood. There were tons of them. Her eyes were also infected. Poor baby!
The vet also tried to get her to stand up on her own but she was too weak. It was a struggle. Besides being malnourished, she was also anemic from parasitic blood loss.
Finally, the little pup is given food and water. She is thrilled! When was the last time she ate? No one knows for sure.
The baby is in poor condition but they are working around the clock to do all they can to get her well. No one can predict the future but now that she’s safe and cared for, her future looks much brighter than before.
We ask that you send this baby girl all your prayers. She deserves a fighting chance. And please don’t forget to do all you can to support rescues and shelters in your community! Together we can really make a difference!
