Blossom, the dog, was discovered by an OrphanPet volunteer in Greece. She had been a stray for weeks, if not months, and had been wandering the streets. The poor puppy was in appalling condition.
Her tail had a chain wire embedded in it that had been there for a long time. Her tail became extremely swollen as a result of the chain being so tightly wrapped around it.
She was also covered in thousands of ticks, which made matters worse. They performed a blood test and discovered that her blood was extremely thin as a result of the tick 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 act quickly to help her.
They gave her a blood transfusion and ended up having to amputate her tail after bringing her in. They worked diligently and methodically to remove as many ticks as they could one by one, but it took them about a week to remove every single dead tick.
Her transformation is truly astonishing. She’s now in excellent health and has made some new canine friends along the way. And the best part? She had been adopted!
She’s now settled into her forever home and relishing her second chance at life. She would not have survived if this volunteer hadn’t found her and brought her in. Thank goodness for OrphanPet’s compassionate rescuers!
Watch her rescue and transformation in the video below. It is truly amazing!
