The ᴘᴏᴏʀ dog laid in the snow for two days before someone finally did something to help her. Thankfully, the ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇʀs were able to find her before she was buried completely. When Stray Paws got the call about a dog that had been laying in the snow for two days, they had no idea how she got there. Was she there because she was sɪᴄᴋ, or ɪɴᴊᴜʀᴇᴅ, had she been in an ᴀᴄᴄɪᴅᴇɴᴛ?
Although they didn’t know why the dog was there, they knew they had to rush to sᴀᴠᴇ her. When they arrived, they saw that the ꜰʀᴇᴇᴢɪɴɢ pup was nearly ʙᴜʀɪᴇᴅ ᴀʟɪᴠᴇ. A blanket of snow partially covered her body, and it was a miracle that she was breathing because the temperatures were below ꜰʀᴇᴇᴢɪɴɢ. How the dog had sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇᴅ two days in ꜰʀᴇᴇᴢɪɴɢ weather is anyone’s guess. She could barely move and had to be in great ᴘᴀɪɴ. Despite this, she allowed ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇʀs to put her in a kennel so they could take her to the vet.
They named her Snow White, a perfect name for a ꜰʀᴇᴇᴢɪɴɢ girl. Once at the vet, they began to try to warm up her tiny body with I.V ɪɴꜰᴜsɪᴏɴs. The vet guessed her age to only be about three years old. Her body temperature was only 32.9°C, the normal temperature would be 38°C. She didn’t weigh much at all, so she didn’t have much protection from the ꜰʀᴇᴇᴢɪɴɢ elements she was lost in. She didn’t have tags, and no one knew her, so they think she was ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ.
They did everything they could for the sweet little dog. Once they got her body temperature up, it took her some time to be able to walk on her paws again. But by some miracle she sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇᴅ and by day two, was able to walk around and even go outside. Snow White had a long road to ʀᴇᴄᴏᴠᴇʀʏ because she also got sɪᴄᴋ. It took her some time and ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴ but three months after she was pulled from the snow, she finally had a forever home of her own where she was thriving and even had doggy friends.
Sadly, dogs like Snow White are ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ all the time. But thankfully, there are people like the ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇʀs at Stray Paws who do all they can to help. They are true heroes who work tirelessly to sᴀᴠᴇ as many dogs as they can. Snow White is such a sweet, happy girl despite all she went through. It warms the heart to see her doing so well with her new family.
