You may remember little podenca Lucy, recently rescued from beside a railway track. She was going through the process of having her EU passport prepared when she was the victim of a terrible attack by bigger dogs which nearly killed her. The second such incident I have reported recently.
She has umpteen wounds and stitches all over her body; she has a puncture wound almost on the jugular - a little bit closer and Lucy would not be with us. A miracle that she is.
Lucy has very bad muscular damage. The vet feels that when she was picked up, she was attacked from behind and shaken. It is hard to hold her because she has wounds all over her body and across her back part. You can hear her body go clack clack in noise. This is the sound of muscular damage. For the time being she is on 2 different sets of antibiotics for infection. Across her body she has wounds so she has to be held from behind and in front; she has wounds in the front also.
The first 24 hours out of the clinic are pensive times and she needed quiet peaceful care and surroundings to rest in her foster home. Lucy goes back to the vets next Tuesday and will remain on vet care for sometime due to internal damage.
There is no doubt that this little podenca is a survivor, a tribute to the breed; abandoned, left to her own devices to live or die, holding her own, hunting to live, but at the end of the day an abandoned soul.
She has overcome the odds, on the street and in care. Strength and will can sometimes come in little packages of love.
Lucy is for sure, one very special little girl, but her vet bills are hundreds of euros. 112carlotagalgos desperately needs money to cover these bills. Please find it in your hearts to dig deep and help pay for her treatment.
