An owner of a small 6-week old puppy brought her to a local vet and claimed that she was paralyzed. They didn’t want her and immediately signed the puppy over to the vet clinic to be euthanized and left. The little furball was on death row, and hope looked bleak. However, the vet decided to do a few tests first to make sure that the puppy was indeed paralyzed and the results gave the little furball hope. She was not paralyzed but had a severe case of hypoglycemia. “Maybe they weren’t feeding her enough.” the vet told The Dodo.
After a few IV’s, the little pup stood on her own and started her journey to recovery. Within a few days, she was standing, walking and eating on her own. The vet clinic had contacted a rescue group called Hand in Paw in California and the founder Piper Wood agreed to care for the little pup (now named Bella) until a forever home could be found.
A few weeks ago that forever home became a reality for Bella and for the first time she showed her playful side. Up until this point, she has been timid and hasn’t had a lot of confidence. But when she was in the door, she started playing with numerous toys and finally acting like a puppy. We wish Bella a long happy life!
