For 11 years Vicky lived with her owner, an 80 year old lady. She lived a pampered life, loved, cherished. Both of them were meant to be together, to support each other until their last breath.
It wasn´t meant to be.
Two months ago her elderly owner was taken to a retirement home and left there there unceremoniously. She was forced to leave her loyal friend behind in their empty house. Neighbours said that the day the lady was taken away you could hear her crying and shouting from every point of the streets. And among the tears people told us she was trying to hold on to her dog and shouting her name… Vicky!
For two months Vicky cried and cried, every two days someone would go feed her but would leave right afterwards… Finally, a decision was taken... Vicky would be surrendered to animal control and immediately euthanised.
But before this happened, someone posted her on Facebook…
People were outraged at the story, outraged, insults... but noone offered Vicky a home. This went one for hours. We were watching silently… Finally, the time was nearing, she was going to be taken to the pound…
While everyone cursed on Facebook I drove to the home and picked Vicky up. But the moment I touched her I noticed something was bothering. She was in pain. We immediately drove to the hospital and we performed an ultrasound. My fears were confirmed. Vicky has PYOMETRA.
Pyometra is an infection of the uterus. A life threatening condition considered a medical emergency. As a matter of fact it´s nearly a miracle that we caught her in time.
Vicky is one of the sweetest dogs we´ve ever rescued. A little princess that has lost everything…
Please help us save her life… this can´t really wait… we are working on improving her blood chemistry a little, but she needs to be operated tomorrow the latest.
Vicky needs to be operated, and she can only count on us.
VICKY WAS OPERATED LAST FRIDAY… PYOMETRA.
IT WAS CRITICAL…
Today Vicky recovers at a foster home while waiting for the perfect family to appear. One that NEVER again ABANDONS HER!!!
