She Saw A ‘Dead’ Dog On The Side Of A Road. But When She Approached Her, She Began To Wag Her Tail
Obregon was so relieved to see this dog was alive, but she knew her road to recovery would be a long one, and wasn’t even sure if she’d make it. The dog couldn’t get up or even move her back legs, but when Obregon approached her, she started wagging her tail.
Obregon picked her up and put her in her car. She drove 30 minutes to her vet, and the entire car ride she was whining in pain in the back seat. She turned on the music and it helped calm the pup down.
While driving, Obregon kept one hand on the wheel and the other on the dog, whom she named Mercy. “She put her paw on top of my hand,” Obregon told The Dodo. “When I dropped her off at the vet, I had her paw marks on my wrist. She was really holding my hand.”
Once Mercy arrived at the Animal Hospital of Valley Ranch, she got X-rays done and received pain medication. Mercy had several broken bones, and although they can’t be sure, they believe she had been severely abused.
She had a scar around her stomach that looked like a rope tied around her waist. They believe someone may have been trying to breed her and she was fighting back.
