A female stray dog who fought robbers off in the middle of the night to protect her community is now fighting for her life at RESQ.
This is a story of vigilance, courage and bravery of a community dog who was attacked by a knife while she barked away and alerted the community about the thieves. What's worse is that she was pregnant and suffered a miscarriage and lost all her puppies even before she could get to us.
People from the community reported that she's been there since she was a puppy and was well-loved by all... They also mentioned that recently robberies had been happening in the area and that in the night everyone heard a lot of unusual barking from her, strange noises and suddenly everything went back quiet. When a resident checked they found the dog in this condition. She suffers from deep laceration wounds which are clearly caused by a sharp object. She seems to have struggled and crashed because she barely has any energy left, maybe she spent all of it putting up a fight.
Time and again, dogs keep proving themselves to be one of our best friends.
