Volunteers picked up a completely wild dog with a huge tumor on its paw! It's amazing who the Battle soon turned into!
In mid-November, indifferent people came to Zaporizhzhya volunteers who met a sick dog on the street. According to them, the animal had an incredibly huge tumor on its paw!
Despite the workload and fullness of the mini-shelter, the volunteers were forced to go in search of the dog.
A volunteer named Elena drove to the specified area in her own car. The dog turned out to be quite friendly, although completely wild.
Apparently, he spent his whole life on the street and was not used to contacting a person.
The tumor on the paw of the animal was really huge. She was so neglected that blood oozed from her.
In the car, the dog behaved very actively, staining everything around with blood, but for volunteers this is a common situation.)
On examination at the clinic, it turned out that there were several more neoplasms on the sore paw. Here the question was no longer about preserving the limb, but about saving the life of the animal.
Doctors decided to prepare the dog for emergency surgery to amputate the paws. The volunteers decided to call the big shaggy dog Boy.
Amputation of the limb was successful, now nothing threatened the animal’s health. But the battle had to radically change your life! And the first thing the volunteers decided to resort to was a groomer.
After the haircut Boy was not to know! From a large, menacing-looking dog, he turned into a slender dog that looked more like a big puppy.)
The battle has changed not only externally. He quickly got used to the leash and got used to people's attention. It took him only a few walks to learn how to walk on three legs.
Volunteers were surprised by such changes in the behavior of the animal, but this is a great joy! The fight is now prepared to become someone’s pet.)
We hope that this amazing dog will not stay long in the shelter!
