Blossom, the dog, was discovered by an OrphanPet volunteer in Greece.She was a stray who had been roaming the streets for weeks, if not months.The poor pup was in appalling condition.
She had a chain wire embedded in her tail that had been there for quite some time.Her tail became extremely swollen as a result of the chain being so tightly wrapped around it.
To make matters worse, she was infested with thousands of ticks.They performed a blood test and discovered that her blood was extremely thin as a result of the ticks.She wouldn’t have survived much longer if they hadn’t rescued her.Blossom’s time was running out, and they knew they needed to help her right away.
They gave her a blood transfusion after bringing her in and ended up having to amputate her tail.They worked hard and carefully, one by one, to remove as many ticks as they could, but it took about a week to remove every single dead one.
Her transformation is absolutely incredible.She is now in excellent health and has made new canine friends along the way.And the best part? She was adopted!
She is now living in her forever home and relishing her second chance at life.She would not have survived if this volunteer had not found her and brought her in.Thank goodness for OrphanPet’s compassionate rescuers!
