When Maria was pregnant, her owners ab.and.on.ed her…
Maria the Dachshund, like many other dogs in the “care” of backyard breeders, was ne.glec.ted.
Worst of all, she was shoc.king.When she was paralyzed and unable to use her back legs, she was forced to breed!
When her owners realized she would require a $3000 C-section, they d.u.m.p.e.d her.That’s when Friends of Emma stepped in!Maria was in desperate need of a loving hand, and the organization saves many special needs dogs.
They took her in and soon discovered that she was anemic due to a flea infestation.She was also emotionally trau.ma.tiz.ed, no doubt as a result of the neglect she had received.Friends of Emma, on the other hand, were determined to give her and her children a new start.
Maria began a physiotherapy routine after having her babies (all seven of whom were born healthy!) to help her with her paralysis and back.
Just wait until 2:05 to see her!I couldn’t help but cry.Maria and ALL of her puppies were adopted into wonderful homes after this video was made, so the joy continued!
