The animal rescue group Hope For Paws in Los Angeles, California (United States) got a distress call for a lifeless dog in the bushes that would not allow anybody approach it.
He had no outward injuries when they found him, but he was plainly unwell; it appeared to be an interior problem.
A bowl of water and some cookies had been placed nearby for her to eat, but they had been left undisturbed. Eldad and Loreta did all they could to get closer to the dog, who was jittery and appeared to be in pain.
The dog’s behavior indicated that something was terribly wrong, according to the rescue team’s footage.
Loreta eventually approached and attempted to put a leash around his neck, and despite Eldad’s herniated disc, she was able to pick up the dog and accompany Loreta to the rear of the rescue van.
The dog was given the name Antonio by the rescuers, and he was promptly sent to his trusted veterinarian, Dr. Pedraza.
Eldad, according to The Epoch Times, said:
“Looking at the ultrasound scans, it appears like he was kicked extremely hard,” he said.
The vet couldn’t believe he’d been hit by a car because he didn’t have any physical indicators, like as fractured bones or apparent injuries, which are always present in such circumstances.
Antonio got an ultrasound, and it was discovered that he had an internal sacred. He would have perished within hours if he hadn’t been saved at the time.
The dog had to have his spleen removed and recovered quickly in a foster home with the help of The Little Red Dog of Southern California.
Finally, a caring family chose to allow him to be by his side indefinitely.
The dog is now known as “Toni Pepperoni” and adores playing with the ball every day.
Toni has her own Instagram account, where her family updates her fans on her progress in her new home.
