It’s easy to see why giving up makes sense when a dog has been mistreated and has experienced numerous obstacles. One dog was on the verge of death. Starving to death, she was alone. The only thing she could do was lie there, unable to stand. They weren’t going to give up on her, though, even though she had.
When they found the puppy and brought her home, they decided to name her Lady. She was sent to the emergency room for treatment. When I first met her, she was barely more than a shell of her former self. Her facial expression conveyed so much. Her eyes conveyed both her suffering and the fact that she was just exhausted.
Her joints had been devastated by a parasite infection after her first exam, according to the doctors. They came up with a treatment plan using x-rays and a lot of blood tests. Help, medication, and proper nourishment were all that she required to recover. But most importantly, she wanted to feel protected and loved so that she could continue to battle for her life.
Lady had a remarkable change with the help of time and affection. The doctors and nurses went to great lengths to ensure that she was as healthy as possible. She was given IV antibiotics and a high-calorie diet to treat her mange. It was at this point that the Lady began to have faith in both her human companions and herself.
Her fur grew in nicely, and her entire disposition changed as a result of the transformation. What a boost to her spirits! It will be a long time before she’s fully recovered, but her rescuers are aware of this fact. There are those she’s wary of. However, she continues to grow in knowledge every day.
The lady has a new lease on life in her gaze. She is confident in her abilities. In many ways, she’s like so many other pets who had given up but were saved at the last minute. Her life and narrative are both amazing. That animal rescuers are still working hard to save dogs like Lady is something for which we are eternally grateful.
