The feeble dog was extremely dehydrated, so rescuers started her on a an IV fluid treatment, which she had to stay on for several days.On the second day, they started by sedating her, before cleaning out the wound and removing the dead tissue that had formed.
Poor Shanti had been so near death, that it's truly a miracle that she survived. But thanks to the intensive care of rescuers, who never gave up for one second, she pulled through.Despite her shy nature, she made friends with one of the caretakers and now spends her days cuddling with him at the sanctuary.
