In the beginning of January, Hope was found in a rusty cage next to a dumpster, thrown out like old trash. She was estimated to be only a few months old, and was quickly taken in by Big Hearts for Big Dogs Rescue in South Florida.
This disease is highly contagious and can very often be deadly, especially in younger dogs. Normally, puppies are vaccinated which has greatly reduced the number of infected canines, but that clearly wasn't the case for hope.She also lost a lot of blood, and her red blood cell count was extremely low, meaning she needed a blood transfusion.
The poor pup was so weak and sick that she needed to be fed with a syringe. But she never gave up.After a week of treatment, she fought to stand up on her own, and after 10 days she was strong enough to leave the clinic for a foster home.
While the adorable puppywas still at her foster home, the Angel's asked to meet her. They brought their other two rescue canines as well, to make sure everyone got along.
Her foster mom said that Hope was usually a little stand offish with new people, but warmed to us, and our dogs, immediately. We brought her back with us that day and she has made herself right at home.
Sweet Hope is loving her new home and adjusting beautifully.
