Dogs can’t even talk like humans to let people know how much help they need or how they are feeling. But somehow, we were given this instinct to understand these animals when they are going through something. So when a kind woman named Ali Thompson first saw this doggo in need, she already knew that she was going to rescue her.
Ali first saw the sick dog, Bunny the Pitbull at a vet clinic. The pup couldn’t move her whole body and the receptionist was carrying her like she was a table. It was obvious to Ali that Bunny had tetanus. Everything in her body was so stiff. Her ears and her mouth were pulled back, and her legs were so straight.
Bunny’s previous owner had to give her up because they didn’t have the money to provide the doggo’s medical needs. Fortunately, Ali was in a position where she could help and stepped up right away. Even though it didn’t seem like an easy job to give this pooch a chance, she believed that it wouldn’t hurt to try.
The first night at home was the most difficult for Bunny. She seemed scared, and maybe she was confused about what was going on, but her body just couldn’t react to all her emotions. Ali made sure to shower her with support and soothing words to help her calm down.
Ali and her husband worked together to provide ’round-the-clock care for Bunny. Then eventually, the doggo slowly started showing signs of improvement. Whenever Bunny heard Ali’s voice and felt that she was in the room, the pupper would start wagging her tail. The doggo also learned to raise her head and give her rescuers sweet kisses.
Even when Ali had work, she would go home at lunchtime to check up on Bunny. Until one day, she was surprised to see that the doggo got so excited that she suddenly stood up all on her own! They continued encouraging her by exposing her to different stimulations to help her walk.
Until a little over two weeks, with the generous amount of love and support that the couple had shown her, Bunny started walking towards Ali! This got the hooman filled up with tears of joy. The couple was so proud of the little pooch, and without second thoughts, they knew that they would be officially adopting her for good.
