If you saw what Bobby looked like two years ago, you wouldn't recognize her.The little dog was found in a ditch by Lukasz and Natalia Muniowski while they were biking in the Polish countryside in 2015. According to an interview with The Dodo the couple gave this month, they first noticed her when her head 'popped up' from the side of the road.
It was clear that the little dog was in distress and the pair immediately went to her aid:
Bobby started to growl, but it wasn't a scary growl. When I [...] put my hand slowly in there... she smelled it and then put her paws on my hand.
She soon trusted them enough to let them pick her up and the canine was safely taken to a veterinarian. With 2 legs looking like they were broken and one paw "hanging [...] from a single thread", the vet guessed that Bobby had been hit by a car, or possibly caught in a hunting trap, and that she'd been injured for 3 or 4 weeks.
Without a family to care for her, the vet doubted that Bobby would have any chance of survival and suggested that she be put down. It was at that moment that the Muniowski's decided to adopt her.After treatment and operations from 2 different vets, Bobby was well on the way to recovery - although she had to have one leg amputated. Despite being given a brace to help her walk, her new family was unsure that she'd ever be able to run again.
