When Judy, an animal rescuer, saw a dog on the side of the road, she instantly stopped her car, writes ilovemydogsomuch.
Countless cars must have passed this sad pup on the busy road, but no one stopped to help her. And it was clear that this Pit Bull was in pain.
Judy got out of her car and attempted to call the dog to her, but the dog was immobile. She was in excruciating pain. Judy approached, and the gentle dog spent the rest of her energy rolling onto her back and wagging her tail. “I’m a lovely dog, and I won’t hurt you,” she said in this way. “Can you assist me right now?”
Judy was able to get the Pittie into her car with a little perseverance. The puppy appeared tired and withdrawn. Judy extended her hand, and the dog pressed her paw against it. They drove the full 20 minutes to the vet clinic in this manner. As though the two were officially battling together to get this dog the help she required.
Judy suspected the Pittie had been hit by a car, but the vet confirmed this. Her old fractures were extremely noticeable. Someone had harmed this poor puppy before abandoning her on the side of the road as trash. Judy thought Mercy would be a good name for the dog.
Mercy gradually began to recover. Judy fed baby from the palm of her hand because she was thankfully interested in eating. Judy wanted to make sure Mercy was at ease in her clinic kennel. Mercy grew rather devoted to her new pink plush bunny, which she received from her mother.
Mercy was given a wheelchair by the rescue group, but she despised it. It even inspired her to walk independently the next day! Mercy struggled, but she demonstrated that she was willing to go to any length to recover.
Mercy’s story was posted on Facebook as she continued to recuperate. When Mark and Sharon saw Mercy’s pictures, they knew she belonged with them. They contacted Judy and informed her that she would be welcomed into a loving household with a large yard. Mercy was destined for this family, Judy sensed.
It was a huge party when Mercy’s time came to return home. Her excited wagging tail and favorite rabbit in her mouth greeted her new parents. In the video below, Sharon explains how she takes her rabbit, “her baby,” everywhere with her. It’s just adorable.
Judy paid Mercy a visit a few months later. Mark was eager to show Judy what Mercy could now do. Mark used a slinger to throw Mercy’s tennis ball into the vast yard. Mercy followed after the ball, running at full speed as if nothing had happened to her. It was fantastic. The dog that couldn’t even stand up had recovered completely.
Mercy’s story couldn’t have ended happier. Thank you so much to Judy and TAO Animal Rescue, the medical staff, and to Mercy’s new parents for giving her the life she deserves. To see Mercy’s full story by The Dodo, scroll on down.
