A mother of a dog with a damaged jaw has been living on the streets of a small village in India for several weeks. Despite her unkempt appearance, she was a kind and affectionate dog who would grow fond of anyone who approached her.
However, a concerned citizen noted that the dog's jaw hung crooked and it appeared that she was in great pain one day.
Close investigation revealed that the mother dog had a fractured jaw. Pinky, a mother dog with a severely damaged jaw, is testament to the dedication and hard work of these groups.
Pinky was living on the streets with her dogs when people who spotted her damage rescued her and took her inside. The poor dog was clearly in pain, bleeding from the mouth, and having trouble breathing. She was taken to the RRSA animal shelter in India, who immediately recognized the seriousness of her illness and rushed her to a doctor for treatment.
Despite the pain and discomfort, the mother dog remained exceptionally sweet and gentle. When the rescue crew arrived, she wagged her tail and kissed their hands as they tried to examine her jaw. To keep the mother dog alive, the crew knew they needed to act right away.
The mother dog was gently lifted into a carrier and sent to RRSA India Animal Hospital. She was given antibiotics to treat the infection as well as pain killers to ease her discomfort. The vets decided the best course of action was to close the mother dog's jaw so he could fix properly.
The mother dog was kept in the animal hospital for several weeks, where she was watched closely and given the care she needed to recover.
Pinky was hit by a car and had multiple fractures to her jaw and teeth, according to x-rays. The wound was swollen, and if it had not been treated, it would have killed her within two weeks.
The vet decided the only alternative was to remove most of her lower jaw and affected teeth. Pinky underwent surgery and was taken care of in a nursing home.
Pinky's recovery has been long and difficult. She had to be partially fed through a tube for about a month, but the love and care she received from the shelter and foster home workers helped her recover.
The mother dog's jaw recovered over time, and she was able to eat and drink regularly again. Her gentle and caring demeanor won over her foster family, who chose to adopt her permanently.
Mother bitch is finally strong enough to be placed in foster care, and that was the day. She was adopted by a caring family who had previous experience with dogs with special needs. They continue to care for her, supplying her with the medications she needs and taking her to follow vet appointments.
Today, the mother dog is doing well in her new home. She has a comfortable bed to sleep in, plenty of food to eat, and all the love and care she deserves. Her rescue tale is a testament to the power of love and compassion, and serves as a reminder that every animal deserves a second chance.
Pinky's tale is just one of the many rescues that happen at RRSA India every day. These rescues would not be possible without the support of the community. The shelter relies on donations to provide medical care, food, and shelter for animals in need. Many animals, like Pinky, would be allowed to suffer and die on the streets if this support was not provided.
