A family in Johnson County, Kansas found a dog so weak and emaciated that the little furbaby could not stand on her own. She was so sick that her saviors were uncertain if the dog would survive the level of abuse she had endured.
In an attempt to give the dog a fighting chance, the family took her a veterinary hospital in Mission Care. There, the staff took the dog and immediately placed her in the intensive care unit.
Amazingly, despite the life of horrors and abuse she faced, the little dog with her ribs protruding was happy and loving.
Veterinarians were amazed the little abused pup simply wanted to love and kiss everyone. Pawsitive Tails Dog Rescue teamed up with the veterinary hospital so the little dog could receive care and not allow the abusers to win.
According to a recent update on Facebook, the precious dog has been named Brighe. Her bloodwork is poor but it could be worse, and she hasn’t been wanting to eat lately.
However, they plan to keep her hospitalized, give her a feeding tube, and continue to fight to keep Brighe alive. The name Brighe translates to “strength and power” in Irish, which is what this determined canine fighter has deep in her soul.
“Refeeding dogs who are in this critical condition must be done painstakingly slowly and is very dangerous,” Pawsitive Rescue shared on Facebook. “Refeeding dogs who are in this critical condition must be done painstakingly slowly and is very dangerous.”
