A woman found a dog named Doris in a field near Bucharest, Romania. The dog could barely walk when the woman found it. She carried the dog to a nearby house to feed it. But the poor animal was too weak to reach the bowl of food on its own so the woman fed the poor dog by hand.
When she got home, she emailed an animal rescue organization, Howl Of A Dog, that rescues dogs. The organization is known for rescuing animals in difficult or dangerous situations. She requested the organization if they could come to get a dog she found abandoned in a field. The dog looked very weak and sick. She was afraid the poor animal wouldn’t last long.
A sad story of Doris
The background of Doris was a bit peculiar. The dog did have an owner before. But its owner used Doris for breeding. Now that Doris was older and became sick, it could no longer bear puppies. Its owner dumped in an empty field like garbage.
The animal rescue team did not hesitate to take Doris under their care. They immediately took Doris to a veterinary clinic for a check-up. There they found out that the dog suffered a severe uterine infection and required a spay surgery.
More problems for Doris
After more thorough examinations, the veterinarian discovered a tumor inside the dog’s right ear flap. Doris also had kidney problems. Later, the vets also found mammary tumors and an enlarged liver. It also suffers from an age-related lumbar spine deterioration.
The staff of the animal center gave love, care, and support to Doris. Slowly, the dog began its road to recovery. Every day it grew stronger and healthier. Even after everything that’s happened to Doris, its will to survive was evident. The animal center hopes someday a person would come along and give Doris a loving home.
