Terribly neglected dog, abandoned and on her own for so long...we don't know how she survived! Emaciated, blind, almost totally deaf....photos attached..
"I have never quite met a survivor of neglect and cruelty like this. This poor poor soul has endured a life a pure misery and torture..."
Meet Miracle- a senior pittie (8-12ish,) who is completely blind, hearing impaired, and extremely underweight. We performed an x-ray on her belly and found it was filled with bones; she could barely walk and has severe pressure sores on her hip bones that have been cleaned and sutured. Once she arrived at the shelter and was medically triaged, it was like she knew she was safe- she finally laid down and went to sleep- and boy did she sleep. After very close medical observation Miracle is beginning to gain some strength and is passing the bones naturally. She is on the mend and has a fight in her that is remarkable.
Please help us find Miracle a foster/adoptive home that will continue to care for her as she fights to regain her health. Miracle deserves to know what love from a 2 legged companion feels like- she has endured such torture most of her life. During the last few years she has left she should know what kindness, peace and love feel like.
