Dog pregnant and paralyzed


Dachshunds have long, squat bodies that are notorious for dealing with problems that develop in their backs and hind legs. It can be assumed that neglect led to this dog’s paralysis. Obviously, breeding weakened her body even further.

Maria’s owners realized that her C-section — which was the only way vets would be able to deliver her litter — would cost $3000. Instead of paying for the procedure, they abandoned her. That’s when Friends Of Emma, a rescue organization in Texas on a mission to rescue and heal homeless and abandoned dogs, took Maria in and saved her life.

Upon her first and much needed visit to the vet, Maria was diagnosed with anemia as a result of a severe flea infestation, along with a score of infections. She was also emotionally scarred and terrified for her life and the lives of her unborn babies.

This story has a happy ending as you’ll see what happened to Maria and her puppies (and how many she was carrying).
