It’s a miracle that Lucy is still alive today.Lucy, who was rescued around three months ago at a construction site in Bali where many dogs lived, went’missing,’ writes boredpanda.Lucy was taken aback when her rescuer spotted her.A fishing wire was tightly wrapped around the tiny pup’s snout, indicating that she had been captured for the dog meat trade and was about to be sold and killed for food.Lucy’s rescuer acted quickly and took her to the vet for medical attention.

It’s believed the poor pup was destined for the heinous and cruel meat farms.
Lucy was then taken to the veterinarian, where the fishing line was removed, and she was finally safe, but not out of the woods.The vets gave her a 50/50 chance of survival because she had parvovirus, a serious disease.
Lucy was finally in a secure location.But she wasn’t even out of the woods yet.She was diagnosed with the lethal parvovirus and given a 50/50 chance of survival by the vets. It was touch and go for a few days, but after two weeks, Lucy began to show signs of improvement and was able to be placed in foster care.After only one day, she began acting strangely, and she tested positive for distemper—as if she hadn’t already been through enough.We didn’t think Lucy would make it, despite her strength.The parvovirus had destroyed her immune system, and she was already skin and bones when we found her.
Lucy began to heal after a lot of hard work and a slew of other illnesses, but she didn’t trust humans at all.
But she fought back.We syringe fed her bone broth every few hours and gave her all the love and care we could because she had no appetite.Lucy had made a full physical recovery and was now ready to begin her emotional healing journey.She was quiet and never made eye contact with anyone from the moment she was rescued.She would huddle in the corner of her crate for hours, only emerging to use the restroom.She must have been through a lot of trauma before we found her—she had no trust in humans.
Slowly but surely, Lucy started to recover from her trauma with a lot of help from vets, foster parents and many other people.
Lucy has been living with Prue, the founder of Mission Paws’ible, for the past few months and has made incredible progress.She is still cautious, but she is gradually reverting to a happy and playful little dog.She enjoys zoomies with her paw-fwends and enjoys sunbathing.Lucy even climbs onto the couch and sleeps cuddled up with her friends, which she never did when she first arrived.
And started to trust humans and other animals again.
Lucy exemplifies how a little patience and a lot of love can go a long way.She looks forward to a bright and happy future and is looking for her forever home.The Healing Centre is currently being built by Mission Paws’ible.This center will provide dogs like Lucy with a safe place to rest and heal.Natural raw diets, daily healing oil massages for hairless hounds, animal therapy music, one-on-one interaction with people, and plenty of sunshine will be part of their treatments.
Lucy is the perfect example of how love and patience goes a long way and can save a life.
