To a tiny puppy, the world must feel like a huge scary place. That is why mama is there to teach them the ropes and assure them that everything will be okay.
This is an essential part of an animal’s growth. But when a baby is left alone, to fend for himself, the fear and suffering are just too overwhelming.
For this little puppy who lost his mama, every moment was filled with uncertainty. He was weak and scared. Fleas crawled on his body and flies surrounded him. Mange had already set in. He was starving to death as there was no way he could fend for himself and find food.
When someone finally spotted him, they called a rescue group immediately. Upon arriving, the rescuers couldn’t believe the puppy had survived this long! He had a fighting spirit which gave them hope. The baby was exhausted and as soon as he felt safe, he fell asleep.
They rushed him to an urgent care facility. He was immediately given IV fluids, antibiotics, and pain meds for his mange. He would start his medicated baths the next morning. The vet staff fed him puppy formula and kept him nice and cozy.
As he regained some strength, he was able to eat puppy food. Every person who met the sweet pup instantly fell in love with him. The vet staff and rescue group vowed to get him healthy and then find him the perfect forever home.
Well, guess what! They kept their promise. The little pup who was moments away from death now lives a wonderful life!
While the world was scary in the beginning, he’s now exactly where he belongs and the world is filled with joy. Thank you to all the wonderful animal rescuers, who go above and beyond for animals like this puppy. There are so many lives saved because of you!
