The unconscious dog was discovered lying in the middle of a field with her head resting in a shallow puddle of water. She had been left for dead after being severely beaten.
The poor dog was only moments away from death when the Animal Aid Unlimited organization received a call for help. Once they were informed about her physical condition and location they left immediately.
Without wasting any time, the rescue team made its way to the field. First of all, they promptly verified that she was still alive. They checked the dog’s vital signs.
She was alive but she was not moving. When one of the rescuers tried to wake her up with gentle rubs, she did lift up her head, but only for a moment.
AN URGENT RESCUE OF THE UNCONSCIOUS DOG
They carefully lifted her from the ground and gently carried her to their vehicle. She was immediately driven to the shelter for emergent medical attention.
Her obvious injuries included a deep tail wound and a facial laceration. They were certain that she had been hit very hard on the head.
This blow caused her brain to swell and would explain the going in and out of consciousness. It is no wonder that she was only moments away from death.
She was given medication to help reduce the swelling, After she was put to sleep, they were able to properly stitch her wounds closed.
The stitching up was necessary to prevent any sort of infection and to speed up the healing process. Although giving her anesthesia was not required, it made the process much easier on the dog. She had already been through so much trauma.
THE HEALING PROCESS
After several hours of observation, she regained consciousness. She was still too weak to even make an attempt to stand up on her own. It took her an entire week or healing and resting to be able to take the first few steps.
While it was a welcome sign of progress, her first steps were wobbly at best. She needed more time to recuperate. Fortunately, her new care-givers were more than happy to give her the time she needed.
They had done the same with many of the other dogs they had previously rescued. After two solid months of consistent care, she made a complete recovery.
Hopefully, she will never again know the physical pain of being beaten or the emotional trauma of being dumped somewhere to die.
Our prayer is that she finds a loving family to provide her a permanent home.
