The dead dog had been lying there for days. Her body was so badly scorched from the sun. A woman pulled over to give her a dignified burial but as she got closer, she thought she saw the dog’s nose twitch.
A woman was driving down a busy road when she saw, out of the corner of her eye, a ‘dead dog’ lying within the grass. the lady stopped the car and ran over. She expected a dull dog but when she got closer, the dog lifted her head .
The poor girl was in horrific shape. She had severe mange that had caused her fur to fall out. Her skin was sun-scorched from being outside without protection. The dog was also so underweight from malnourishment. it had been obvious she was never fed properly. There was no time to waste. She needed to be seen by a medical professional ASAP!
The kind woman loaded the dog into a crate. Her frail body nearly collapsed once she was safely inside. Now it had been time to urge her to the vet! The sweet girl was such a trooper. She appeared to understand that the lady only intended to assist her. the lady named her Spirit because her spirit was so strong!
Once at the vet, Spirit tested positive for rickets. Her calcium was so low that it had been near-fatal. The disease caused her legs to twist up from spontaneous fractures. Her muscles were atrophy . Spirit’s condition was heartbreaking, especially once they realized someone had cut half her ear off. What quite monster would do that?!
The vet administered pain meds which helped an excellent deal and Spirit was finally ready to eat a meal! She gobbles it up sort of a real champ. Who knows when she had an honest meal! It could are ages. The vet notices while she eats that her front leg, so deformed from rickets, would never heal properly. the sole option was amputation.
Dogs are so resilient and Spirit was no exception. Her amputation surgery went great! The brave dog learned to regulate to life on three legs and it didn’t bother her one bit. She was relieved to be in less pain, finally.
Something truly incredible happens next. We don’t want to spoil it for you, but let’s just say the previous skeletal dog on the roadside that her rescuer thought was dead does an entire turnaround. She was unwanted and mistreated. A monster cut her ear off and dumped her so she’d die alone yet she STILL got her happily ever after… and it’s the simplest payback possible.
