When a woman responded to a call about a puppy on the verge of hypothermia, she really had no idea what she would find there.
Apparently, a guy with a stone heart had thrown the poor little furry inside a cardboard box covered in snow to the point of freezing.
Hugely hypothermic little puppy was fighting for his life in frigid temperatures
The events took place in Arkhonskaya, Russia, a town especially known for its extreme temperatures.
Tamara was heartbroken to see how anyone could do such a thing to such a small and vulnerable creature. Clearly, if she hadn’t responded to the call for help, the little guy would have died in a matter of hours.
She took the little baby in her arms and carefully took him to a veterinary clinic without hesitation.
The puppy’s condition was critical; his body temperature was so low that the vet couldn’t even tell, he was breathing very weakly, and he hardly moved.
Because he was severely dehydrated, his little body appeared fragile, and he had no blood pressure, they were unable to perform any additional tests to determine his true condition.
Tamara works as a volunteer for the Dublin Shelter rescue organization. These heroes took care of the little boy, and they would do anything to persuade the puppy to defy fate and save his life from then on.
They named him Joseph because the poor thing desperately needed a miracle to live.
In the clinic, he was placed inside a heating pad to help him regain his normal body temperature.
Although that started to be a good option, everything became complicated when his breathing became weaker and weaker.
It was critical that José receive a blood transfusion. He’d have to spend several days in the hospital while the vets hoped for a miracle, but faith and hope are the last things to go, and they’d never give up fighting.
After a few days, he started to improve dramatically.
“We were able to hear his voice, and finally some tests could be performed,” his rescuers said.
They discovered that his main issue was not only that he had arrived in a hypothermic state, but that he was infested with parasites inside that were basically eating him. This resulted in a lot of diarrhea, vomiting, fever, and general weakness.
So they dewormed him right away, and José, despite his small size and fragile condition, proceededn’t seem to want to give up, clinging to life from the moment he arrived at the clinic.
The puppy began to show signs of life the next day, which was encouraging and hopeful for everyone.
Although he was still in pain and required intravenous medication, which could be very irritating for him, all of the vets did their best to make José trust and suffer as little as possible.
They soon reported on their networks that José was recovering wonderfully, thanks to his heroes’ self-sacrifice, who spared no effort to ensure his recovery, and above all, thanks to the deep love with which they treated him.
It’s only a matter of time before the puppy, for whom a heartless man once wished the worst fate for him, undergoes a complete transformation and finally receives the love full of love that he has always deserved.
We sincerely thank the woman who quickly responded to the call for help, thanks to that she saved the life of this vulnerable furry for whom his fate was cast. But even the most seemingly unlucky creature can defy his own destiny, thanks to love.
