When Animal Aid Unlimited, India learned about a sick puppy lying in a shed they raced over to save her. She was too weak to move but but she surprised them when she tried to wag her tail as they approached, writes dogheirs
“At the sound of our voices, she found the strength to wag her tail, and her black button eyes told us all we needed to know,” Animal Aid Unlimited wrote of the stray puppy they named Cotton.
“This sweetheart suffered with mange probably most of her short life, and the mange was winning: she had collapsed in the corner of a shed and would never have stood up again if rescuers had not arrived,” they continued.
They could recognize that Cotton needed immediate medical care.
“She needed help or she would die,” they wrote.
“We hurried her to the hospital and gave her an IV drip to hydrate and nourish her.
By morning she was already slightly improved, and we began treating her infected wounds and mange.”
