A scared dog was found in a terrible situation. Dog was dehydrated, sick, missing fur and was covered in sores.
She was rescued by PAWS of Hawaii. Dog was found on a West Oahu beach.
“Someone had just buried her and they had a machete, so who knows what was next,” said PAWS of Hawaii, which named the dog Leialoha, the Hawaiian word for “beloved child.”
“The man who buried her, we were led to believe, had started to cut her,” PAWS executive director Ku’ulei Durand told NAVC.
Dog was so sick. She was found with missing fur and was sunburned. Also her legs were swollen.
So vets helped dog immediately. Doctors applied coconut oil/SSD ointment to her skin and now she is feeling way better.
Dog has started to eat and feel healthy again.
