Stray animals sᴛʀᴜɢɢʟᴇ daily in order to sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇ. For one mama dog, finding enough food for her and her puppy proved ᴅᴇᴀᴅʟʏ. She tried to cross a busy highway but was ᴛʀᴀɢɪᴄᴀʟʟʏ ʜɪᴛ by a car. After the impact, the mother dog ᴡᴀs ɢᴏɴᴇ and was found lying on the edge of the road while her baby was unaware of what was happening. He looks sᴄᴀʀᴇᴅ and lonely. He clung to his mama hoping she’d wake up.
A kind passerby stopped the car and called the local ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ in tears. When rescuers arrived, they found that the puppy was deeply sᴀᴅᴅᴇɴᴇᴅ by the ʟᴏss of his mother. His mother is his whole world, now he doesn’t know what to do next to live. The dog didn’t want to leave its mother, but rescuers had to separate the two.
The rescuers took both dogs and put them into their vehicle. First, they tried to give the puppy some formula but he wanted nothing to do with it. He continued to cry and huddle into the corner of the cage.
Although rescuers comforted him and made him as comfortable as possible, the dog just wanted his mother to wake up and talk to him.
The rescuers decided to give the mama dog a proper ʙᴜʀɪᴀʟ and say some kind words. They told themselves that they would take good care of her baby so she could ɢᴏ ᴀᴡᴀʏ with peace of mind. The puppy was taken to the vet. He was weak from dehydration and inadequate intake of food. The vet and lifeguard tried everything, but the dog still wouldn’t eat.
With no other option, the vet had to give the puppy an intravenous infusion of nutrients. He was cared for around the clock by the ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ team and medical staff. The dog is getting better but he is still haunted and misses his mother. It will take time for him to feel safe again but no one is giving up on his recovery. Can we please send this baby all our prayers and well wishes?
