Imagine what it would be like to have thousands of ticks gorging on your body. Well, this poor little girl knows what that’s like — and the infestation had her miserable and sick almost beyond recognition. Not to mention, it nearly ended her life.
Add to that the wire embedded in her tail and this little pooch wasn’t feeling very well at all.
Warning: there are graphic images below.
SICK AND MISERABLE
The dog we’re talking about today, later named Blossom, had one heck of a time for a while.
When a volunteer from OrphanPet found her — Blossom didn’t have much time left.
JUST IN TIME
You see, most of us know that ticks bite an animal (or human) and then suck out their blood. Blossom had so many of the little demons on her body, the veterinarian said her blood was very, very thin.
Blossom’s blood was so thin, in fact, the sweet pup would not have lived much longer without intervention.
HELP IS HERE LITTLE ONE
Luckily, the rescuers from OrphanPet found Blossom just in time. After they got her inside, they went straight to work.
Somehow, Blossom had a wire embedded into her tail. The darn thing was on there so tightly, the veterinarians could not save her tail.
ON THE MEND
Like many animals in Blossom’s situation — the miserable and sick dog seemed to understand the humans were there to help.
As soon as all those nasty ticks were out of her, and she recovered from surgery, Blossom’s amazingly sweet personality started to shine.
The rescuers hoped against hope they would be able to find the sweet girl a good home.
FOREVER HOME — UPDATE
