Annabelle was found as a stray on Monday, tiny and emaciated with a huge growth
Annabelle was found as a tiny, emaciated stray pup with a huge growth on her backside. Our staff immediately dropped everything and picked her up, rushing her to Oradell Animal Hospital. Despite Annabelle’s difficult, painful life, she was as sweet as can be – a quiet little girl who had endured so much in her short life.
Annabelle is a younger female Chihuahua with some type of prolapse. She survived days out in the cold weather, sick with no food or water – and she found her way into our arms. In the few short hours that we held Annabelle while waiting for the doctors to diagnose her, we gave her as much love as we could, knowing that she may not make it out of the hospital. Annabelle gazed up at us, confused but adoring the kind touch and attention.
Doctors said the prognosis for Annabelle was very guarded, and they could make her stable while we wait for a surgical consult in the morning. What did we want to do?
It only took a moment to decide. Annabelle wasn’t a dog with a lifetime of love behind her. She is a dog that still needs to learn what it’s like to have a warm, safe home and all the love in the world. Annabelle received a blood transfusion, intravenous fluids and medication to keep her comfortable as we wait for her surgical consult this morning.
We have seen Annabelle fight to live, and we have seen Annabelle love against the odds. This tiny little girl deserves a chance. Please donate today to help save Annabelle.
