The Michigan Humane Society rescue department got a call about an injured puppy that was found on the side of the road. Amanda Boots was their rescue driver that rushed to the scene and got surprised at what she saw.
Call for help
The caller was unsure of what happened, but they believed that the puppy was hit by a car. Amanda tried her best to drive as fast as she could to the vet clinic.
Carrying the puppy in her arms, Amanda went into the clinic and requested to bring him to the emergency room. The staff took over and prepared the dog for an x-ray.
While looking at the x-ray, the vets noticed there was a BB pellet on his back. They said that the dog should undergo surgery to get the bullet out.
While in recovery, the puppy’s heart ended up stopping, and he suddenly stopped breathing. The vets had to perform CPR on him.
Once they resuscitated him, the puppy’s vision was not all there. The vets knew the dog wasn’t able to see everything in complete detail.
Dr. Shawn Dunn, a veterinarian and veteran, was reading the news online and saw the puppy’s story. She was distraught when she found out about the dog’s complications.
She kept thinking that if she didn’t get the dog, she’d be worrying about him for the rest of her life. She got in touch with the rescue that had the puppy and went over.
When Dr. Shawn saw the puppy, her heart was set. She adopted him and named him Crixus. The puppy was officially part of the family with all of Dr. Shawn’s rescue pets.
Crixus was so happy in his new home and even got a set of wheels. He loved being able to run around freely. Dr. Shawn was glad to have given the dog a life that he deserved.
