Nancy the Doberman ended up in a dumpster with a broken back after being severely beaten by her tormentor, writes ilovemydogsomuch. Monster, knowing that no one would find the emaciated dog in the abandoned dumpster and that she would eventually succumb to her injuries. But Nancy was desperate to survive.
Nancy was paralyzed by the blows, but she crawled through the shards of glass and metal scattered around the junkyard. She was bleeding and her eyes were full of tears, but she didn’t give up. Fortunately, someone alerted her and they took her to the hospital and prayed for her survival.
In this video we follow Nancy’s traumatic stay in hospital as she struggles to cope with paralysis. Vets perform a difficult surgery to repair her damaged spine, but Nancy’s movements are still very limited. Her back leg was also completely immobilized. Her caregivers decided to take her to a rehabilitation center where she could continue her treatment.
Thanks to water therapy, massage and treadmill training, Nancy’s front legs slowly recovered after months of exertion. But her back legs were still unresponsive. Rescuers didn’t want this adorable dog to suffer too much, so they bought her a wheelchair so she could play and socialize with other rescue dogs!
Rescuers plan to continue Nancy’s physiotherapy. She is already showing promising movement in her back legs and can even move without a wheelchair! Nancy has proven to be a true fighter throughout her treatment. We hope she makes a full recovery and finds a loving forever home!
