A Bisbee, Arizona resident contacted rescuers after she found an abandoned dog on her property that appeared to be on the verge of death.
The dog was lying in a ditch. He was unable to move, and the woman was not even sure she could get there.
When rescuers arrived, the temperature was well over 94 degrees Fahrenheit, and the dog had been in the water-filled cove all day in the scorching heat.
The dog was found ten feet from the woman’s front door and a few steps from the barn, which certainly could have saved the dog, but the woman chose to leave him outside, unprotected from the weather.
If Bray had not been found when she was, she certainly would not have survived, as she was already on the verge of death.
They took Bray to the vet where he was treated for dehydration. She was very weak and emaciated, and her nails were very long, indicating that she had been there for some time.
Blood tests showed that she had liver and kidney failure, as well as a low level of red blood cells.
The vets worked tirelessly to save his life, and over time, Bray got stronger and stronger. She eventually regained her appetite and started eating on her own, which caused her to gain a lot of weight.
Vets didn’t think Bray would go alone again, but she continues to ignore the odds. Now she is taking steps on her own and enjoying a second chance at life.
