This case is quite horrifying. Watching this video brings tears to my eyes even after witnessing it myself. We’ve named her Majò. She is so malnourished, she is skin and bones and has so very little strength. Her front left paw appears broken, raw, and swollen. Her back right leg cannot bear any weight at all. She is covered in healed wounds that look like old burns. Her fur is still falling off around the largest “burn”. She clearly had at least one litter of puppies in the past. I pray that her pups will never suffer the way she has. I can’t even bear the thought that she would still be laying there dying slowly on the side of the highway. I’m optimistic. I’ve seen these creatures perform miracles in the past. Majò just needs a chance to perform hers. We are in it for the long haul, kid!
Day 7: It’s been just about a week since we picked up this sweet little girl. Today, when I happened to be looking over the balcony, I spotted her outside of her dog house. She had come out to do a poo and, for once, didn’t immediately run back in. She drank a little water and doddled around a little. We quickly ran down to open her pen door and let her out. She’s standing so well! This little girl is such a fighter.
Day 14: Look at me now! I am so strong. I am happy! It’s been a whole two weeks since we picked Majò up from the side of the highway. She’s been on a steady diet of puppy kibble, chicken and rice, and antibiotics. The scabs on most of her wounds have fallen off to reveal beautiful healthy pink skin. She still has a long journey ahead of her, but the smile on her face says it all. Hopefully, in just over a week we can have her x-rayed and see what can be done about her back right leg. A huge thank you to all those who have contributed to her treatment.
Day 22: Catching this wonderful little girl playing with Charlotte and Latoc was such a wonderful thing to see! She is truly happy! Such a ray of sunshine! We still don’t know if she will ever use her back right leg as she won’t put any weight on it at all. I’ve seen her move it though, so maybe she just needs physio. Unfortunately, I’m really not sure I have time for that. Her front left leg has nearly completely healed over and the large burn on her back is growing fur!
Day 80: It hasn’t been even three months, but boy, has she healed quick! From the brink of death to a wonderful sweet little girl full of life. Her front left leg where she was chopped healed. The large burn on her side is now beautiful healthy skin trying to grow fur. She’s been spayed and x-rayed, revealing a (badly) healed broken femur and nerve damage in her foot. The nerve damage causes her to walk on the top of her foot. The vet recommends amputation.
Day 110: This one was a fighter. Eventually, the fresh burn on her back and (machete) chopped front left leg healed. The back right femur break and nerve damage never properly healed, so amputation was necessary. This little 24lb girl is now as healed as she will ever get! She has permanent scars her abusers marked her forever with, but she is strong! Majò is scheduled to fly to Toronto 10 days later! We hope that someone compassionate, gentle, and kind will give her a home.
Day 120: Majò’s ideal home has
