Just two-years-old and desperately trying to survive, an abandoned pup’s life has been full of pain and suffering. On the streets of south Texas, no one stopped when Princess was struck by a vehicle and thrown onto the side of the road. The impact left her paralyzed; Princess was doomed to die, but this little one refused to give up.
Luckily, Princess worked up the strength to crawl into a Good Samaritan’s backyard. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC intervened after hearing about the young dog’s plight.
“The Good Samaritan whose backyard Princess crawled into stated she watched as Princess had been eating away at her paws and legs,” Rescue Dogs Rock NYC co-founder Stacey Silverstein, wrote on the organization’s Facebook page under the heartbreaking photos and video of the tiny tan dog just wanting to live. “This all occurred out of desperation, abandonment, pain and most importantly survival.”
On Saturday, Princess was rushed to the San Antonio veterinary partner for Rescue Dogs Rock NYC and is now receiving around the clock care. Radiographs confirm a vertebral compression fracture leaving the dog paralyzed from the waist down. At this point she needs to heal and receive medical care until the next steps can be determined. It is expected Princess with need wheels.
Check out the brief video and how this little dog refuses to give up:
