Honey was found severely wounded and in horrible pain on a roadside in Vietnam. The team has guessed that Honey fell victim to a trap set up for the meat trade.
Luckily, she managed to escape and drag herself away. A tourist spotted her, called us for help and luckily our partner Paws for Compassion was able to spring to action. Honey was in a horrible state; her hind limb had been torn off, leaving her bone exposed, causing incredible pain to the poor dog.
Honey was close to going into shock due to her injury. She was rushed for emergency surgery, receiving antibiotics and pain control. Due to the extent of her injury, the leg had to be amputated.
Honey is now in the care of our rescue partner, recovering well, but still very traumatized from this experience. It took her a few days to build up the energy and appetite to eat.
She is now looking brighter however, getting her strength back every day. Her nursing care is intensive and we are hopeful that she will adjust to her life on three legs.
