When Animal Aid Unlimited found this poor little puppy, she was having a really difficult time trying to walk.
No matter how hard she tried to move, her small body would simply refuse to allow her to lift it off the ground. As one of the staff members tried to pick her up, the change in her position must have left her lower back in an odd angle because she let out an audible whimper of pain.
Fortunately, the small size and the generally sweet disposition of puppies. Especially ones that are this young, allowed the rescuers to bring her over to the shelter without a struggle. Once there, she was placed on the table for the customary examination. The cute little thing would cry out in agony, every time they touched her lower back. They gave her medicine for the pain as well as inflammation so that she wouldn’t have such a hard time while waiting for her bad back to get better.
Thankfully, they didn’t find any sign that her bones had been fractured but she was undoubtedly in so much pain.
They opted to gently massage her hip on a regular basis to help relieve the pain until she was ready to stand up on her own. Regular massages are important not just for us humans, but for our best friends too. It may sound like a luxury, but in this case it was more like a necessity! The one good thing she had going for her was her appetite. This little fella never lost her enthusiasm for food and it didn’t take much to get her to eat something.
Two days into her stay at the shelter and not only was she able to stand, but she had also started walking on her own! The pained expressions and the whimpering had been replaced endless puppy kisses and enthusiastic wagging of the tail. Hopefully, it won’t take too long for her to find her forever home.
If anyone deserves it, it’s her.
