There are many dogs on the street defending themselves. Exposure to the elements of danger, these dogs often find themselves in dangerous and near Dᴇᴀᴛʜ situations.
But luckily, there are many lifeguards out there willing to step up and save these dogs, giving them a fighting chance for their lives.
Like a rescue, the person who went an incredible distance to save a dog was found in the sewer.
Animal Aid Unlimited, India received a call about a dog found collapsed in a sewage drain. While the water was only a foot deep, the dog had no strength to hold himself up and nearly drowned.
Her condition was dire and the rescue team arrived just in time they suspected that the dog would take its last breath within minutes without help. The rescue team pulled the dog out of the water and discovered how bad his condition really was.
Her legs were broken, black necrotic. She is also in severe shock. The team realized the only way to save the dog’s life was to amputate a dog’s leg to prevent infection.
After the dog regained some strength, they performed sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ. It wasn’t an easy task, but a desperate last-ditch attempt to save the dog’s life.
“Many times we were afraid we might lose her,” says Animal Aid Unlimited.
But the sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ was a success and now the dog appropriately named “Phoenix” is doing better than ever. Even though she lost a leg it obviously didn’t affect her quality of life and she can be seen happily running around.
And she’s grateful to everyone who helped save her.
Unbelievable! This dog has gone from the brink of death to running happily, surrounded by love.
It will show the incredible work that animal rescues have done. Share this great story!
