Hope is a small bulldog, and a caring family takes care of her, but this cute puppy is not always so lucky. When she was only a few weeks old, she was first found in a plastic bag inside the Coachella Valley litter box. Fortunately, Alejandra Espinoza Zazueta was rescued after receiving a call from her mother. Unfortunately, when Zazueta arrived at the scene, she found poor Hope in poor physical condition.
Zazueta immediately called the sheriff department and animal control department to report the matter. Then she took Hope to the local veterinarian because she knew the puppy needed immediate medical attention.
At the veterinary office, when they saw the heartbreaking state of hope, they decided it was best to transfer her to the Animal Hope and Health Foundation. When she got there, she was taken care of immediately, and everything seemed to be fine.
During Hope’s medical treatment, they found that many of the skin on her back had completely rotted, so they had to be removed by surgery. The medical team speculated that the burn may have been caused by contact with heated objects or chemicals.
“It’s cruel. I honestly don’t understand how a person could do this to defenseless little puppies,” said Zazueta. “I am mind-boggled and distraught and furious that this is what happened.”
Of course, Zazueta had bonded with Hope, so she decided to adopt her and take her home once she recovered.
At first, the medical team was not sure if Hope could use her hind legs, but Zazueta didn’t care, as long as the poor puppy eventually became happy and healthy. She even discussed purchasing custom wheelchairs for Hope when needed.
Despite everything she went through, Hope has recovered successfully. She is looking healthy and she is even able to run and play just like any other puppy! Luckily, there is no need for a wheelchair.
Zazueta is so grateful that her sweet puppy is in much better shape. Hope is happy and safe in her new environment and she has even made other dog friends. She still has to wear a bandage for her wounds, but other than that, she’s doing well.
Even if the life of hope becomes better, the Animal Hope and Health Foundation will continue to look for the person in charge. They offer a reward of $ 20,000 to anyone who knows who this scary character is.
No dog has to go through everything Hope has experienced, and it is heartbreaking to think that anyone will do such an innocent puppy. Such people should be punished most severely.
Zazueta even created a GoFundMe page to view Hope’s medical expenses. If you want to help Hope recover, please donate anytime! Thanks to all her loving support, she is doing better every day!
