Her leg was cut off by a train, but she still wags her tail
When travelers Katrell and Patrick’s arrived in Udaipur by train early on the morning of May 7 2016, they heard the heart-rending cries of a dog somewhere in the near distance. They ran in the direction of the screams and could never have been prepared for the dog they found. The dog who had been crying was standing near the tracks with blood streaming from her hind leg that was severed above the knee. Her leg had just been run over by a train in a freak accident.
The travelers frantically called our helpline and waited in the station for our ambulance to arrive.
The darling dog was so terribly afraid and in so much pain but when our rescuer Ganpat approached she still waged her tail, which broke out hearts into about a million pieces. She cried out at the lightest touch and avoided being caught, keeping just out of reach. When she ran out of the station into an open field we had to act fast before she ran away, so Ganpat quickly threw a blanket over her and was able to pick her up. She never even tried to bite despite being so horrifically injured and so afraid.
She had lost so much blood that although she needed the mangled stump of her leg amputated as soon as possible, we had to wait several days giving her IV fluids and medication to help her recover. When her health had stabilized, we brought her into surgery and amputated her leg.
