Transformation of an old and injured street dog
Dazed, stumbling and badly wounded, precious Edith almost seemed unaware of the presence of her rescuers. We found her walking along the side of a busy road, obviously confused and disoriented. Thankfully a passerby had seen her and called on our helpline to report her injury.
When our rescuers gently put a blanket over her to pick her up, the only indication that she knew the difference between no blanket and blanket was a brief nervous wag of her tail.
After bringing her back to Animal Aid we saw just how deep and horribly infected the wound on her back was. She was severely dehydrated and looked like she hadn’t eaten in days. We really couldn’t believe that she had been able to walk at all, and indeed, after her first treatment she immediately fell asleep and went on to sleep almost continually for the next several days.
This quiet sweetheart must have been through many ordeals and close calls in her long long life on the street. She has been a mommy many times over; you’ll see that she’s already been old for a long time. But she revealed, after weeks of treatment, that her sparkle had definitely not flickered out. Meet beautiful, elegant Edith today.
