No one knows how long he was lying there, but it is estimated that the black Labrador Retriever mix was impaled by a metal rod for at least 24 hours before he was found.The dog, who has since been named Lucky, was taken to an animal hospital in critical condition. It is a miracle that he is alive today.
This is the sad but inspiring story of one dog’s recovery from a seemingly impossible situation.
Neighbors spotted a beautiful dog laying by a rod in a construction site. When they came closer they saw to their horror that the rod had pierced through her thigh and she had impaled her. She couldn’t get free no matter how she struggled. They called Animal Aid to the rescue, and we quickly arranged for workers to come with an electric metal saw.
The terrified dog had to endure terrifying sounds of the saw against the metal, but we covered comforted her while the rod was cut and we were able to free her. Her wound was serious but because no bones had broken, we were able to clean,
bandage and protect her with antibiotics. After her ordeal, she needed extra love to find the courage she would need to heal. And after a month of daily wound dressings and many cuddles, meet Shylee now!
