Stray Dog Shot Dozens of Times But Makes Unbelievable Recovery


Animals Lebanon volunteer Amal Andari and her friend were taking a drive when they noticed a poor stray dog walking aimlessly on the road.

When they stopped to give the stray dog water, they noticed that something was terribly wrong.

“We saw a hole in her head,” Andari told The Dodo. “We stopped and walked down to her. She was a little bit fearful, but we called her, and she came, and she was wagging her tail. She approached us, but slowly, and we gave her some water,” she added.

Wanting to know more details about the dog’s circumstances, Andari asked a local man about what might have caused the injury on the puppy’s head.

“He told me he didn’t know. ‘Maybe a dog attacked her,’ he said,” recalled Andari.

Andari and her friend brought the injured dog immediately to a veterinary clinic in Beirut and they were shocked to learn that the two-month-old puppy had been shot more than a dozen times as pellets can be seen all over her body in the x-ray slides.

“There were so many pellets. We think that a bunch of teenagers had ‘fun’ shooting her,” Andari said.

Apparently, shooting, hurting and even poisoning stray dogs is a common occurrence in Lebanon.

Apart from the hole in the head, the many pellets in her body, the puppy was also suffering from parvovirus, a highly contagious and potentially life-threatening disease.

Fortunately, after spending some time at the vet, the dog began to heal, even though she was originally given a dim prognosis. Andari’s friend decided to be the one to provide foster care for the lovable pooch.

“She’s hyperactive. She always wants to play. She plays with two small dogs, and the dogs are sometimes annoyed by her because she has a lot of energy. She’s unbelievable — this dog,” Andari said. “She has an appetite for life. She wanted to live – I believe that.”
