Abused Dog Who Was Thrown Into a River Makes The Most Inspiring Recovery Ever
By Alex Ungerman
Warning: parts of this are difficult to see.
Volunteers at Hope For Paws in Los Angeles rescued a little dog spotted in the Los Angeles River.
The dog, who's rescuer named him Jordan, was barely clinging to life and had likely been there for a couple of days. He had been abused and thrown into the river according to an eye witness. One of his paws had been removed.
Jordan could not move and had to be transported by basket to an animal hospital.
Jordan suffered from malnourishment, as well as bacterial infections and skin disease. Slowly, but surely, he recovered.
They gave Jordan a bath, blood transfusion, and when he was finally strong enough, surgery. It was a lot to go through for a dog that had already been through so much.
Just a few days later, Jordan moved in with his foster parent and got noticeably better.
