On this fateful day, a woman was doing a photo shoot when she heard this tiny strange sound coming from the train tracks close to where she was doing her photo shoot. The sound was like a wounded cat, so she moved closer to see, and she found a newborn puppy, unfortunately with one of her tiny legs tied down to the train tracks.
The puppy was only hours old, her eyes were still closed and even the umbilical cord was yet to detach. Luckily her friend was with her, so they freed her from where she was tied to and took her to a vet not so far from where they were. They thought the puppy would die in minutes because of the horror she went through and to their surprise, she was just doing fine. The woman reached out to her friend to see if she might be able to help because she was more experienced caring for animals.
“My friend declared her less than 12 hours old” said the pup’s new mom Deirdre Oakley. “I went back to take her home the following day, she entrusted her into my hands because she knew I could take care of her and also because I have raised many little animals in the past.” The puppy was very dehydrated and it felt like she would die, but days after she got back to life stronger.
Oakley named the new pet Polka Dot. She started nurturing her; feeding her almost four times every hour and she could not help but fall in love with the little Polka. “She has never had any health issue since then and about just a week ago her eyes opened and she has started responding to her new environment – she knows perfectly when it’s time to eat!”
“She loves to be held and can be very clingy; I hope she will grow stronger and beautiful.”
Little Polka is now three weeks old and feeding just so well. Polka’s saviors some time ago talked to the police regarding how they found her, but nobody has reached out to them to claim little Polka.
“I don’t think I can let her go, I am happy I found her, who knows if she would be dead by now if I did not see her. She definitely loves her new environment and she will be staying with me because I am just so fond of her. She deserves a happy and a very significant life. I have three other dogs too and I found one of them where I saw her, she won’t have any problem living life.” said Oakley.
