Dannie's body is destroyed from abuse.
A 3-month-old puppy has just arrived at Austin Pets Alive! with extensive wounds. This is a powerful story but hard to hear, and many of the images are graphic but we desperately need your help!
Someone left Dannie in a bucket in incredible pain with her front left leg almost torn off. A good Samaritan found her and she was thankfully brought straight to APA, where they were able to start assessing the damage and easing her pain immediately. The bones of her front leg currently appear to be okay, which means there’s a chance that her leg is savable. She also has deep punctures all over her body. When she arrived, she was in severe pain and shock - she will need constant IVF fluid, morphine/pain medicine and daily bandaging, all of which APA’s clinic is providing.
Dannie is currently on a 48-hour watch as staff keeps an eye on her front leg swelling, conduct tests, administer pain medicine, care and snuggles, and determine next steps. But it looks like this sweet girl has a long road ahead of her after what has undoubtedly already been a nightmare, and which could include the loss of a limb.
These are the types of animals APA saves. These are the animals who have unbelievable injuries, illnesses, challenges or life stories - but who still exhibit a will to live and who deserve that chance. To survive this horrific abuse Dannie will need you!
Dannie needs your help today. With every purchase today, we will donate to help Austin Pets Alive do everything they can to save Dannie!
