After being thrown away like trash, Willow has learned to trust again!
April 18, 2018

Willow was a severely anemic puppy found in a plastic bag and thrown away like trash.

Willow was brought to the shelter on 11/30 by a good Samaritan that had found her discarded in a plastic bag, too weak to move. The shelter sent her to the vet for emergency treatment to save her life. According to the vet notes, Willow did not have a temperature that was readable, she was also 7-10% dehydrated and had a BCS of 1/9. The vet warmed her up and gave her some fluids and this little miracle started perking up.

As one might imagine, she is a little leery of new people and potentially has some trust issues. We think we would also have those types of issues if someone had discarded us in a trash bag. Because Willow wasn't very nice to the workers, she went on the euthanasia list at the shelter. Our rescue pulled her and took her to the vet to receive much needed medical attention. 

After many weeks of hospitalization and on-going treatment, little Willow was finally cleared to go into foster care to spend the rest of her recovery. With CUDDLY'S help, The Rescued Pup was able to raise funds to help with her hospital stay as well as getting many fluffy toys and a comfy bed donated to this sweet girl. After a couple months with the rescue, a lovely woman came forward that wanted to adopt little Willow! She was a little hesitant at first (understandably so) but then she just couldn't stop giving her new mom kisses! We are so grateful this sweet girl was able to pull through and go on to live a happy and healthy life with her new family!
