The dog meat trade is a disgusting business. Even where it is outlawed, backyard butchers still exist. In some cultures, dog meat is believed to be so high in nutrition that dogs are viewed as livestock instead of pets. Animal lovers continue to fight for these butchers to be shut down. It’s an uphill battle but no one is giving up.
For one puppy, her circumstances were beyond grim. She was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Beijing. The butchers tortured her so she wouldn’t run away. She had been beaten and her feet were cut off. Yes, we know this is horrific. But this story isn’t about her abuse. It’s about her tenacity and her innate survival instincts. As her rescuers call her, she is a “supernatural” puppy that is a true inspiration.
When the rescue group brought her in, people were up in arms. They wanted her euthanized. They felt she had been tortured enough and shouldn’t be treated. They felt the most humane thing to do was to put her down.
But the rescue group felt differently. They saw that she wanted to live. She had this unique fight in her. The medical team was amazing! They were able to remove any infected tissue and treat her with pain medication.
Before long, the puppy was doing great. Her legs had been correctly amputated by a surgeon. She would now be able to wear prosthetics. The news couldn’t be better! A prosthetics company that works on animals stepped forward and had the puppy correctly fitted for new feet. Look at her go!
As she grows, she will need new prosthetics. But her outcome is excellent! She also was adopted into a loving forever home! Her new mom promises to treat her like gold. This pup had been through so much but she is so happy now!
We know this story began tragically. We hate that this puppy had to suffer. But thanks to rescue groups like this one, the puppy is now living her best life– on all four feet! To see her rescue, click play on the video below. And don’t forget to pass this story on. We must continue to raise awareness so rescue groups get the support they need!
*Please be advised that the video contains sensitive images. However, there are no images of surgery and there is no violence shown. But again, remember, that this pup’s story ends happily!
