When Asian Pet Rescue Center received an urgent call about a puppy found by the side of the road, a rescuer immediately sprang into action. The group knew it was imperative that one of them made it to the site as quickly as possible. They raced against time to save the little one.
Is he still alive?
When the responder made it on site, he found the little brown puppy by the side of a busy road, completely motionless. He thought he was already dead, but when he looked closer, he realized he was still alive. His breathing was labored but there was still time, he told himself.
The rescuer examined the puppy right then and there. He listened to his heartbeat using a stethoscope and checked for bleeding. He also administered fluids to help stabilize his condition.
The puppy, named Vàng, later on, was taken to the vet for emergency care. He received first aid, and once he was well enough, he continued to the medical care center of Asian Pet Rescue. He spent the next several days resting and gaining back his strength.
The lady who notified the rescue group about the puppy said he was probably hit by a car while scavenging for food. But the rescuer believed something different happened. It was possible that someone intentionally hit him, and then left him by the roadside to die.
Whether the little guy was hit by a car or deliberately hurt by someone didn’t matter anymore. What’s more important was that he received the care he required at the time he needed it the most. He was fortunate that someone saw him or he could have perished right away.
Several days later, Vàng felt much better. He became a playful and happy puppy. He didn’t even seem to recall that something bad happened to him.
Today, Vàng is ready for a new start. He wishes to find a home where he can spend his puppyhood and the rest of his life with someone who will love him unconditionally.
