After being struck by a car, a stray dog remained immobilized in the snow for 12 hours.
The puppy had shattered her pelvis and was injured in a northern Alberta hamlet. She couldn’t move and the temps were below freezing, so she didn’t stand a chance.
Fortunately, she was discovered by a group of youngsters, who alerted the Animal Rescue AB Task Force, who then contacted the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS).
“She lay alone and freezing for nearly 12 hours until rescuers discovered her and brought her to SAVEvet,” AARCS reported. Because of her body heat, the snow had melted around her.
When Nutmeg, the puppy, was discovered, she was overjoyed to meet her rescuers.
Nutmeg is on crate rest for the next six weeks while she recovers from her shattered pelvis.
“This girl deserves so many cookies, love, and back scratches!” said AARCS.
Nutmeg is receiving some well-deserved attention and treats. It may take a few seconds for the video to load.
Nutmeg will be ready for adoption after she has completely healed.
It’s a good thing Nutmeg was discovered. Share her savior’s tale with your loved ones!
