Every day, stray animals struggle to survive. Finding enough food for herself and her puppy proved fatal for one mama dog.
She tried to cross a busy highway but was fatally struck by a car. She died instantly, so she did not suffer, but her baby had no idea what was going on.
He was scared and alone. He clung to his mama, hoping she would wake up.
In tears, a bystander stopped her car and called a local rescue. She begged them to come right away. When they arrived, they saw that the puppy was heartbroken.
His mom was his entire world, and now that she was gone, he had no idea what to do with himself. He didn’t want to abandon her, but the rescuers had to step in.
The rescuers put both dogs into their vehicle. They tried to give the puppy formula at first, but he wanted.
He kept crying and huddled in the corner of the cage. Despite their kind words and all the comfort the rescuers could provide, the puppy only wanted his mom to return.
The rescuers decided to properly give the mama dog and say some kind words to her. They promised to care after her baby in her honor. The puppy was taken to the vet’s office.
He was dehydrated and undernourished, so he was weak. The vet and his staff tried everything, but he still refused to eat.
This was nothing new to the vet and his staff. When a puppy is this shut down, they have no choice but to give him the nutrition and fluids he requires.
He won’t make it if they wait. They put an IV and allowed the puppy to rest as comfortably as possible.
The rescue group and medical staff are working around the clock to care for the puppy, who is making steady but slow progress. He’s still scared and misses his mama.
It will take time for him to regain his sense of safety, but no one is giving up on his recovery. Could we please send this baby our best wishes and prayers?
