When a selfish breeder had a nearly perfect litter of Bulldog babies, she was thrilled. She knew she could sell them for plenty of money. But one puppy wasn’t perfect. The little Bulldog baby was born with a leg deformity. Some breeders will euthanize puppies they cannot sell. And while we consider this totally cruel and unnecessary, this breeder did the unthinkable.
The breeder took the puppy up the street and dumped him as if he were a piece of trash. It was snowing out and his little body became buried quickly. He just lied there totally helpless. His little cries were finally heard by a passerby who then wrapped the puppy up and rushed him to the vet. His leg, which could’ve been addressed and treated at birth, had become necrotic.
The passerby saved the puppy’s life. Had he laid there merely 30 minutes more, he would have died of hypothermia. Once the pup was safely at the vet, the vet’s staff called a local rescue knowing they would need to pool their resources together. This little one needed treatment and eventually a loving home. The rescue group named the puppy Draper.
Draper was so tiny! The vet said he needed to be put in the warmer immediately. While Draper warmed up and finally slept, the vet treated his leg. He wasn’t sure if the wound would heal but what was most important was that Draper was now safe!
In a week, Draper began to open his eyes more and his new human friends considered this a miracle. He even drank from a bowl all by himself. His tiny face was a constant reminder of his innocence. And how anyone could be so mean to this tiny puppy was unthinkable!
Draper went to his foster home once the vet medically cleared him. His leg is healing great. It’s still a possibility that it will need to be amputated. It’ll all depend on the healing process and his ability to get around. However, so far, he gets around just fine!
Little Draper is very comfortable in his foster home. He has also made a new friend. His foster mom’s cat is particularly fond of the puppy and lays with him often. She loves to watch him play too. The sweet cat even purrs when Draper is around. Draper likes her too!
Draper’s foster mom absolutely adores him. Draper will grow up and find a forever home because of a kind passerby and a team of amazing people. We are so grateful for his rescue and recovery.
