Those who left her alone have no heart
Her name is Magnolia, a dog who shows the world that hope never fades. It’s not easy to move around with a six-kilo bundle clinging to your body.
It wouldn’t be easy for anyone to try to get by in such conditions, but it’s even worse for an abandoned animal .
This dog was left alone in a street, condemned not to survive.
Magnolia’s former owner decided to leave her to fend for herself on Mahogany Road in the US Virgin Islands. People moved by his plight reported the dog, and volunteers from the Animal Protection Center came to his aid.
These people had no idea what painting they were going to find, the dog couldn’t even move because of the weight of his tumor. Magnolia had serious health problems that needed to be addressed as soon as possible.
His mobility being impossible, the veterinarians began to plan his operation. This after making sure everything was fine with the female dog’s heart. The examination revealed that the dog was not wandering because she was well fed.
It is likely that his family decided to abandon him , after his health got completely out of control.
Due to the size of the tumor, the risk was higher, as anything could happen during the operation . Doctors and caregivers prayed for the dog’s recovery. Indeed, the shelter requested prayers for this dog on social media.
Fortunately, these prayers paid off , because two hours after the operation, the anesthesia was completely gone and little Magnolia was waking up.
The operation removed 6.75 kilos of tumor mass. This dog made a full recovery after being sutured. The vets were proud of what she had gone through.
Now Magnolia had to regain her strength and even relearn how to move without that huge, uncomfortable tumor clinging to her body. Fortunately, she was able to get back on her feet, and her caregivers began encouraging her to take her first steps.
It must have been a strange, but liberating moment for her. Magnolia couldn’t walk for very long because her stitches were still fresh and uncomfortable. Everyone was moved to tears when they saw her standing.
The therapy was not easy, as it took weeks for the dog to regain her health, and also her confidence . Magnolia was terrified of the pain she remembered from having to walk, but it was behind her now, and she would soon see for herself.
After being discharged from the hospital, Magnolia was placed in a temporary home where she continued to be watched over and her recovery closely monitored. Fortunately, the tumor was not cancerous, so all they had to worry about was getting it back to normal.
After a few months, the dog returned to the shelter where she continues to grow healthy and very well cared for by all the volunteers who brought her back to life.
It is gratifying to see how the dog found in a deplorable state in the street was finally able to regain her joy and her smile . More heroes like this are needed in the world.
