The underdogs do it again! - Hope and Faith
Fate had stacked the deck against them. They were young,
they were alone, they were sick. They had no one looking out
for them. They had no shelter. They had no food.
Hope and Faith were the underdogs.
Few people bet on the underdogs because they are predicted to
lose. But this time, because of the dedicated volunteers with
hart, you could have placed your bet with Hope and Faith and been a
winner - just like them.
All Hope was not lost when she arrived at the vet. A
swollen face, her body covered in bald spots, crawling with lice,
she could barely keep her eyes open. Because of her tiny
frame, it was evident to everyone who met Hope that she had not
eaten anything nourishing in a very long time. What she had
eaten recently, that worked through her system, were paint
chips. With treatment, medication and lots of support, Hope
is the active and healthy little pup she should have always
Incredibly weak with her system on the brink of shut down, Faith
spent the first couple of days after her rescue on 24 hour watch at
the vet. Her gums were grey, she was so completely dehydrated
and emaciated, she could not even lift her head. But she
started to come around. First she wagged her tail, then she
lifted her head, then she took a drink, then she stood up, then she
had a bite of food. Now, she is bombing around playing,
running, jumping and licking anyone that comes close.
If you have found yourself often cheering for the underdog, come
and join us. We need more help saving the underdogs!
