Susanna was abandoned by her owner in a landfill. The female was malnourished, exhausted and covered with fleas and ticks. She couldn't raise her head or walk. The quadruped was found by employees of the Gulfstream Guardian Angels Rottweiler Rescue organization. When they saw the bitch, they were terrified.
'Animals are abandoned at this landfill to die. It is a very dangerous place because a lot of trucks are passing there at high speed and it is just heartbreaking. ” Laurie Kardon admitted.
Since Susanna was unable to walk, the paramedics had to put her on on their own. to the car
But most importantly, it was finally safe. The female dog was taken to the nearest animal hospital, where her fluids were replenished and blood tests were performed.
It turned out that Susanna was paralyzed
Nobody knew the reason for its failure. It was not clear if she would ever walk again.
After a few more days Susanna's condition was stabilized
The female dog had no back problems and none of her bones were broken . People probably did something very bad to her and that's why she couldn't walk.
“Her feet were deformed, so we believe that she was kept in a tight cage from birth. She probably lived in such conditions for most of her life and was used to breed dogs illegally. When she stopped being useful, the owner simply abandoned her. “
3-year-old Susanna passed already a lot. She had to fight another important fight for her own life
“When I saw her for the first time, she raised her her head and licked me. This girl really wants to live. We knew we would do anything to help her. “
The rescue team and veterinary services jointly developed a plan treatment
The female had to be provided with good quality food to help her regain her strength. Then she was to undergo rehabilitation. The female dog also needed painkillers to help ease the stiffness of her weak muscles and bones.
With lots of good food and love, Susanna began to recover
A little over a week after rescuing, a team of vets brought Susanna to a rehabilitation pool to check on her state. Much to her surprise, when the female dog got into the water, she started to move!
“We were all in tears when we saw it. We felt a great relief! “
Susanna really wanted to regain her fitness, so lifeguards regularly took her to the pool
After time, the eyes of the bitch had a glow again and her tail started to wave. She looked forward to everyone she met.
Susanna felt better and better every day. Despite everything she went through, she loved people so much
“She's just happy. Probably for the first time in my life I feel this way. “
Now, more than a month since being found in the landfill, the female dog is finally strong enough to start playing with other dogs. She loves them all!
Seeing how far Susanna has come, everyone is excited that she will soon be available for adoption
