There is something incredible and inspiring about seeing a creature everyone looked over leap into life. Many animals in shelters and rescues worldwide have come from the most unimaginable pasts and somehow made it through.
You won’t believe this is even a dog when you see it.
Jeevith has a past more difficult that many can even stomach. The poor dog was first found literally sitting in a dirty city puddle in India. Frankly, it looked like she was waiting to die.
The tiny dog was bone-thin and covered in dirt.
While some strays look like they get some food, Jeevith was all skin and bones. In the state she was in while sitting in the puddle, it looked like she had days to live. A passerby, however, saw her and decided to post on his Facebook to see if anyone could help.
Animal advocates across the world saw the poor dog and united to get the attention of a nearby vet.
For a dog who looked like it had already given up the ghost, hope was on the way for the first time in her life. KAW, Kannan Animal Welfare, immediately sent a dispatch to see if they could find Jeevith before it was too late. Without help, the dog wouldn’t have made it.
When Jeevith got to the vet, they got to work right away.
If you have a weak stomach or are easily upset, don’t read further. When they finally got the poor dog inside, they put her on an IV to stop the immediate threat. She was on a drip for two hours and wasn’t even able to move her body.
Her right eye was entirely eaten away by maggots.
Flies had landed on her and laid eggs in her fur. When they hatched, the larvae had decided that Jeevith was going to be their new host. The results left her without an eye. All across her body, little holes could be seen where maggots had started to eat away the dog while still alive.
Besides the infestation, she was completely malnourished and needed a TON of help.
Still, day after day, she got stronger. With food, water, and medical care, little Jeevith started to meet goals, and the threat of death started to fade into the past! After a few days, she even took her first steps!
Every day was a new day of recovery for her.
The dog that started to show through the skin and bones looked nothing like the poor animal found in a puddle on a random street in India. Even better, Jeevith had prospects for adoption, something the vets could barely dream of when they first saw her!
Jeevith was able to find a loving forever home overseas!
The fluffy, happy dog looks like a completely new animal! She will always have the mark of her past, particularly seen in her lack of an eye. Despite the difficulty and pain that Jeevith experienced, she pushed through and was able to find love. If that’s not an uplifting story, nothing is!
