He was just looking for shelter. Instead, what had seemed like a safe place to hide for the night was becoming his death sentence. In Liberty, Texas, a 10-week-old puppy was trapped for days under an abandoned trailer in the woods: his paw was entangled in barbed wire and he, desperate, asked for help with all his might.
They heard him bark for days, but couldn’t find him, until they realized that moan was closer than they could imagine. By the time they reached him, the dog was in a very serious condition: his leg wound was infected, hundreds of worms crawled in and out of the wound, the bone was exposed and he was in great pain, as well as being dehydrated and without strength.
The puppy, now called Harley, was rushed to the veterinary emergency room in Vergi where the vets immediately began life-saving treatments and then underwent surgery: the paw could not be saved, the only way forward was that. amputation.
The 12-week-old dog was anemic and also received a series of transfusions and drips of antibiotics, as well as fluids and pain relievers. The fee was rising hour after hour but fortunately ThisisHouston stepped forward to pay the bills and promote the dog. The convalescence will be long, but Harley will be able to heal completely and even on three legs she will be able to live a full and happy life, forgetting this terrible adventure.
