Puppy Found In Icy Ditch With Fracture Pelvis Is Now Safe
A puppy found on the side of the road with a fractured pelvis is now in the care of the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS).
On the weekend, AARCS got a phone call from the Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force.
“They were told about a young puppy who was found in a ditch after being hit by a car,” AARCS explained in a Facebook post.
“It is suspected that this poor gal spent over 12 hours lying there alone and cold before rescuers found her.”
The puppy was rushed to SAVE, the Southern Alberta Veterinary Emergency clinic, in Okotoks.
She’s being treated for a fractured pelvis and will need strict crate rest for at least six weeks as her bones heal.
A day later, the group released a video of the puppy eating treats and wagging her tail.
And in response to a question about her age and breed, they said, “Hard to know for sure, but possible shepherd x around 7 months old.”
Nutmeg is expected to be put up for adoption after she heals.
