Terribly neglected breeding dog with big injuries, filthy and covered in fleas. And yet she looks to people for help and shows them kindness

A terribly neglected dog with egregious open and infected wounds on the side of her body and her shoulder did not prevent the dog from approaching a rescuer on a city street in St. Louis on Friday afternoon. Within minutes, her blue-sky eyes melted beside the human who would help her save her life. Her tail waggled, indicating that she was about to be rescued.

“Sources tell us she’s only ever known the name “bitch.” Rushing to our clinic now. She’s filthy, covered in fleas, looks like she’s had litter after litter. And yet she looks to us for help and shows us kindness. Unbelievable. We gave this warrior a proper name, Adira, it means strong and powerful.”

Adira was rushed to the Stray Rescue of St. Louis partner rescue veterinarian, where she was sedated and her injuries were cleaned and assessed. It appears that the abscess was caused by a large wound. Dr. Schulz removed as much dead muscle and tissue as she could, cutting through three layers of muscle and almost to her spine.

She is still in critical condition, but she made it through her first night. Her update on Saturday morning made our hearts sing.

“Good Morning, from Adira! Yes, she made it through the night and is surprisingly bright eyed this Saturday morning! She had a little breakfast, too. Hope this girl can continue to hang on and fight so we can give her the life she deserves. We are so impressed, grateful, and tearful for our medical team.”

After 4 days, Adira feels the positive energy and prayers she’s received from all around the world! Thank you! She has been eating good and getting a lot of rest. She is a walking miracle. Thank you again to the medical team. She’s not out of the woods yet, she has a long way to go and a lot of things that could still go wrong.
