Paralyzed on her hind legs, the pregnant dog was abandoned by the owner in the meadow, covered with fleas, but Maria persisted in living and creating miracles.
Maria belongs to the Dachshund breed, a dog with a long body and small legs. Unfortunately Maria was paralyzed from the lower half of the body from the ribs, the hind legs also lost the ability to move. However, Maria’s pitiful plight did not end there. In her small and weak body, Maria still struggles every day to win the lives of the puppies in her belly. The heavy pregnancy made Maria thinner and weaker.
Maria’s body was thin, weak and paralyzed with the lower half of her body. Plus the pregnancy made her health weaker and weaker.
Due to her weak health, Maria needed a cesarean section. The cost for a caesarean section is up to $3,000 (more than 69 million VND). Instead of taking care of Maria, its owner was willing to abandon it and leave Maria to fight the disease alone while pregnant.
Maria was abandoned by her owner after learning that the cost of a caesarean section was too great.
Fortunately, a rescue group for abandoned dogs named Friends Of Emma in Texas, USA found Maria and took care of her. There, Maria was diagnosed with anemia due to having too many fleas on her body and showing signs of infection. Not only was she sick, but Maria was also mentally unstable when she spent a long time panicking because she was worried about her unborn children.
Maria could only use her front legs to drag her heavy body.
Maria also suffered from anemia, an infection caused by being abandoned in a meadow full of fleas.
Maria’s teary eyes made people feel moved by the pitiful plight of this poor little dog.
Maria’s “fat” belly is actually nurturing 7 lovely puppies inside.
But in the end, Maria still successfully gave birth to 7 lovely healthy puppies in April. Currently, Maria’s condition has become much better. He was able to blend in with the people around him and play with his children. This is not only the result of the care and help of the relief team, but also thanks to the spirit and strong will of Maria herself.
The strong Maria has now recovered and is living happily with her 7 lovely children.
