One sickly and starving female Ibizan Hound touched the hearts of many once people got wind of what she had endured in order to keep her puppies alive despite her condition. This is the story of Vera, who had walked at least a 2-mile’s worth of distance to fetch human help for her ailing young. Vera was bone-thin with a broken leg as shown in the picture below, but her health did not deter her from her duty as a mother.
Limping all the way towards and back, Vera managed to get the attention of a local woman named Lianne Powell, who followed her along with a local vet, all the way to an abandoned car where her pups were. There were 10 puppies nested in a basket at the back of the vehicle itself!
The local vet had deduced that Vera and her pups had previously been dumped by hunters and left to fend for themselves after there was no longer any use for them. Vera’s broken leg was found to be a clean break, and it was just after hunting season.
Vera and her puppies were brought back to the animal clinic, where her young would be fed and safe. Vera’s leg was also properly treated, bandaged and re-aligned.
Thanks to the staff’s loving care, Vera’s health and strength returned. She and her puppies would be properly cared for and then placed in loving homes once the canines have properly settled into their new environment.
