Critically injured street dog adopted by volunteer
On the night of September 19 our ambulance went to the rescue of a dog who we had heard was injured in an accident. When our rescuers arrived they were shocked to see that the dog’s leg was severed and all the muscles and even bone in his leg were completely exposed. In addition, his eye was injured and his eye ball appeared to be ruptured. It was a sight out of a horror movie.
Back at the shelter we quickly bandaged his leg, treated him for pain, and gave I.V. fluids to prepare him for urgent surgery the next morning.
The next morning our veterinarian amputated the remaining part of his thigh and removed his injured eye.
By the very next day “Pirate” started to show his fun-loving personality.
It was during his recovery that volunteer Tappy Vyas, a resident of Udaipur, met him and the two quickly bonded.
When Pirate was nearly fully healed, Tappu shared the fantastic news that she was going to adopt him. She told us that what with everything he had been through, and the fact that he was missing not only a leg but an eye too, she wanted to make sure he had a home for the rest of his life.
Pirate is loving his home with Tappu and her family and has two adorable neighborhood dog pals too.
