A woman was driving down a secluded country road when she noticed movement in the prickly overgrowth by the side of the road. She continued her investigation and soon discovered an injured dog limping in the dense bushes. The lonely, hurt dog was so happy to see her that he leapt over the overgrowth and into the woman’s arms, despite his painful wounds.
The dog, later named Vlad, appeared to be dangerously emaciated and in desperate need of assistance. He knew she was his only hope for survival, so he embraced her and hopped into her car, full of newfound hope. According to ilovemydog, the poor thing was so hungry that he tried to eat a pack of tissues in the car.
Vlad was placed in the care of the rescue organization “Howl Of A Dog.” His initial vet examination revealed that he had double leg fractures, possibly as a result of a hit-and-run. The injuries had worsened because they had been there for at least a week, which meant Vlad had been starving and suffering alone for that long.
Vlad was placed in the care of the rescue organization “Howl Of A Dog.” His
Vlad needed emergency surgery to repair his limb problems. His rehabilitation was difficult, but the workers at the shelter encouraged him and gave him the strength to fight through the pain and discomfort until he was healed. With more exercise, he regained full function of his injured leg and blossomed into a brilliant and handsome young man!
Vlad has now found his dream forever home in Phoenix, Arizona, with a family, and he is living like a true prince! Curt, his new father, has renamed him “Buddy,” which fits the pooch’s friendly and loyal personality perfectly. Buddy, you’ve got a great life – and don’t forget to smile!
