When a woman responded to a call about a puppy on the verge of hypothermia, she really had no idea what she would find there.
Apparently, a guy with a stone for a heart had thrown the poor little furry inside a cardboard box covered in snow to the point of freezing.
Hugely hypothermic little puppy was fighting for his life in frigid temperatures
The events took place in Arkhonskaya, Russia, a town especially known for its extreme temperatures.
Tamara was heartbroken to see how anyone could do such a thing to such a small and vulnerable creature. Clearly, if she hadn’t gone to the call for help, it would be a matter of a few hours for the little guy to leave this cruel world.
Without hesitating for a second, she took the little baby in her arms and carefully took him to a veterinary clinic.
The puppy’s condition was extremely serious, his body temperature was so low that the vet was not even able to detect it, he was breathing very weakly, and he hardly moved.
Because he was extremely dehydrated, his little body looked so fragile, and he had no pressure, unfortunately they couldn’t do any more tests to assess his real condition.
Tamara is a volunteer with the rescue group Dublin Shelter. These heroes took care of the little boy, and from then on they would do anything to get the puppy to defy fate and save his life.
They baptized him as Joseph, the poor thing really needed a miracle to continue living
At the clinic, they proceeded to place him inside a heating pad so that he could recover the ideal body temperature.
Although that seemed to be a good option, sadly everything started to get complicated by the simple fact that his breathing got weaker and weaker.
It was urgent that little José be given a blood transfusion. He would have to spend several days hospitalized while the vets waited for a miracle to happen, but faith and hope is the last thing to be lost and they would never stop fighting.
After a few days of that, he started to improve unbelievably.
“We were able to hear his voice and finally some tests could be carried out,” said his rescuers.
They discovered that his main problem was not only that he arrived in a hypothermic state but also that he was infested with parasites inside, which were basically eating him. That caused him a lot of diarrhea, vomiting, fever and weakness, in general.
So they proceeded to deworm him immediately, and José, despite his small size and his delicate condition, seemed not to want to give up at all, clinging to life from the first second he arrived at the clinic.
The next day, the puppy began to show its first signs of life, which were encouraging and hopeful for everyone.
Although he was still in pain, and needed intravenous medication, something that could be very annoying for him, all the vets tried to do their best so that José would trust and suffer as little as possible.
Thanks to so much self-sacrifice of his heroes, who spared no effort to guarantee his recovery, and above all thanks to the deep love with which they treated him, they soon reported on their networks that José was recovering wonderfully.
It is only a matter of time before the puppy, who one day a heartless man wanted the worst fate for him, achieves a complete transformation and finally gets the love full of love that he always deserved.
