When a neglected dog was found abandoned, rescuers realized that she was paralyzed. However, with unconditional support, she made it through the most unbelievable of circumstances.
Sometimes dogs that are used to breed puppies often live in a terrible environment and face severe neglect. Maria, a dachshund, was mistreated for her whole life by her owners, leaving her paralyzed from the ribs down.
But the cruelty didn’t end here—despite her paralysis, her owners still used her to breed puppies. Newsner reports that since she was paralyzed, she couldn’t undergo a normal delivery, and when her owners learned that they needed to cough up $3,000 for a cesarean section, they abandoned her.
Fortunately, Friends of Emma, an animal organization in Texas, took her in and got her the medical attention she needed. She was also discovered to be suffering from blood loss due to a severe flea infestation.
Maria was initially terrified of humans. However, she recovered well and gave birth via C-section.
Her seven puppies were born hale and hearty.
When her puppies turned 8 weeks old, they were adopted, but that is not all—after many months of therapy, Maria started to walk again; it was a miracle!
Maria is now a healthy, happy, and energetic dog, though when she is tired, her hind legs sometimes drag a little.
