Several of herribs were broken, herback legs were dragging behind herand herspine was severely damaged.Worst of all, Khalessi’smuzzle was completely disfigured, someone had cut it off.With no nostrils, the poor dog wasforced to breathe through hermouth.Stephanie Paquin and her husband, Mike, the founders of the charityPassion 4 Pits, tookKhalessi to an emergency vet clinic inHays Town,Hudson, New York, when surgeons worked for over five hours trying to reconstruct her face.
Dr. Colby Burns, who was in charge of the operation, told the site Wishtv.com:
We’re going to elevate some of this tissue and bring it around to the front to allow that to heal, while actually creating two openings so she has a nasal passage.
Between August and January, Khalessi spent a lot of time being operated on and the rest of her time recovering.
But throughout this difficult time, she was constantly supported by her two rescuers, Stephanie and Mike, who offered her all the love in the world. She revealed her affectionate personality, always up for playing with her family!
“Whether she’s here six months, 12 months, or six years, she will get the best possible care, and she will deserve it”, Mike told thesite Dogster.But the disease finally got the best of Khalessi.In a Facebook postjust a few hours after she died, her human Stephanie Paquin said:
Khalessi told me she was ready and I could see she was tired. This morning at 8:43 Khalessi left this world and left a huge hole in my heart. Devastating is not even close to describing how we feel. However her memory and her foundation with continue on.
