Reese was spotted on the sidewalk. No one knows how the unfortunate baby managed to survive. She was so malnourished that every bone in her fragile body could be seen. Who could have allowed this to happen? Why would someone hurt her like that?
Animal Control has been contacted and they hope to save her life by contacting Jersey Pits, a nearby rescue team. The puppy is pictured in the back seat of their car in a photo they sent over. Everyone who saw the photo burst into tears. They had never seen such severe ᴀʙᴜsᴇ.
She’s happy to be given lots of kisses to show her gratitude to her new human friends, even if she’s too weak to hold her head up. To put it mildly, she is a huge dog lover. No creature should endure ᴘᴀɪɴ, but starving a dog as lovable as Reese is clearly especially ᴄʀᴜᴇʟ.
Medical staff took appropriate actions to improve Reese’s condition. She needs extensive attention. She was able to stand on her own for a very short period of time after a week in the hospital. Sure, it’s an achievement
A few weeks later, Reese was walking on her own. She is wagging her tail and even “sitting” on command. After a month in the hospital, she was discharged to her medical care home. Reese’s adoptive mother, Ryn, said she was hesitant in the car, but as soon as she got to the foster home and realized she was safe, she “came to life”, picked up the toys and had fun playing with them. Reese was for the first time in a home where she was appreciated and desired.
Then, Reese transforms into a “real dog,” hopping on the couch demanding attention and activity. She really started to grow when she was able to walk without ᴘᴀɪɴ. She realizes that there is a vast outside world waiting for her to explore.
Every morning they woke up and she would have to loosen Reese’s collar. That’s an amazing achievement because it means Reese is gaining weight and getting healthier! Reese continued to get better and gain weight. She was still living with Ryn when she recovered. She will soon be adopted and everyone who meets her trusts that she will make a wonderful addition to any family.
We were so relieved that Reese was found in time and resurrected. Thank you to all the animal heroes who didn’t give up. She is so inspirational!
