Brutally injured puppy defies all odds
The panic in his eyes was simply awful to witness as this injured puppy struggled to escape excruciating pain. Jeremy, a 4 month old street puppy, had been run over by a vehicle. Both his front legs were injured—one totally devastated and almost torn off– and hanging from flesh. From the impact of the car his teeth had punctured through his upper lip. Confused, he kept biting at the crushed leg. Our rescue team rushed him to Animal Aid’s hospital where we immediately gave him pain relief, IV fluids and bandaged his wounds and as soon as his condition stabilized the following day we amputated his mangled front leg.
But the coming weeks filled us with worry because Jeremy’s heart seemed even more broken than his body. Every day our caregivers spent time trying to encourage him to relax and accept affection but he just couldn’t. He only wanted to hide.
But as the weeks passed something slowly started to change…the boy who it seemed no one could cheer up started to smile…
