Over the weekend, the non-profit organization, The Arrow Fund, provided an update about a puppy, missing her front paws, who was abandoned in a duffel bag which had been dumped in the woods. The pit bull pup, dubbed Freya, is recuperating from her injuries (including a broken femur) and she will soon be starting physical therapy.

The Arrow Fund described the puppy’s challenges:


We need to make sure the muscles do not atrophy before she grows enough to have surgery on the fractured leg. She is just too tiny at this point. That is where physical therapy will help. She will be under the care of Dr. Ruth Schmidtchen at Blue Pearl. We adore Dr. Ruth Schmidtchen ♥️, who has cared for so many Arrow Fund babies.

As little Freya grows, she will likely need prosthetics for the legs which are missing paws – in the meantime, she will continue to receive the love, physical therapy and veterinary care that she needs. Read the original story about Freya here.

    I hope Freya completely recovers and gets the safe loving home she obviously never had – and to the hunk of sewer sludge who so callously dumped her – I pray there is a date with a tractor trailer in your very near future.

      Nancy you are so great with your words. I agree with everything you say. I would love to torture all these low life POS sewer slimes. I really hope they have a short painful future.l
