Meet Bella, A Loving And Gentle Street Puppy
On a journey to help 10,000 dogs per month, Bella is a street puppy, one of many, who has beaten all odds of survival.
Bella is one of the many stray dogs in Thailand. She’s only a puppy who doesn’t know how good life can be, especially when your puppy. Luckily, Bella is finally getting a chance to be a puppy.
Who Is Bella?
Bella is a 12-week-old puppy living on the streets in Thailand. This poor pup was found living under a shack, hobbling around.
It was clear that she was in pain because she limped on her leg. Also, she had a few open wounds. We don’t know if she was hit by a car or had an unfortunate interaction with another dog or human, but Bella’s wounds will heal soon enough with some help.
Allowing Bella To Be A Puppy
Deemed initially “Bruno,” Bella was discovered to be a female puppy. After being brought to the vet, it turned out that she had the following issues:
- A fractured leg
- Fungus infection
- High fever
- Probable worms
Even though she had never been in a house before, she could rehabilitate indoors. She was perfectly housetrained already, going to the bathroom outdoors, being quiet, and completely gentle.
Not only has she been in a lot of pain for a while, but it’s painfully obvious that this puppy hasn’t had much of a chance to be a “puppy.”
Luckily, Bella is expected to make a full recovery, become fully vaccinated, and dewormed. The best part is that she’s found a loving, forever home.
Bella doesn’t need to worry about living on the streets anymore. She can be a puppy in the comfort of her new home.
How To Help An Injured Dog
Unfortunately, in Thailand, taking care of vet bills can be tricky. For example, Bella’s check-up costs about 9,000 Baht (or about 250 Euros), under the average monthly salary.
However, there are a few ways you can help an injured dog (whether it’s a stray or your pup).
If you’re able, save up your money and set aside some specifically for your dog. Even if it’s only a little bit here and there, it’ll add up. Then, should you ever need it, you might have most of the bill already covered.
In addition, you can also opt-in for pet insurance. This will help you cover the cost of vet bills as needed.
In some cases, you can heal your dog at home. For example, if they have a small scratch or something, you can simply allow it to heal itself.
For example, the dog will lick it clean. They have enzymes in their saliva that break down the cell walls of harmful bacteria to ensure the cut doesn’t get infected.
In addition, you can keep it clean yourself by washing it with warm water. Don’t use soap, though, or else that could harm your dog’s skin. All you’ll need to do is rinse it with warm water to ensure dirt and other debris stay out of the open flesh.
