It’s hard to imagine someone ignoring a tiny, dehydrated, and flea-infested puppy with an open wound on his leg, but that’s exactly what happened to little Tyson. Fortunately, a compassionate woman found him and took him to the vet, where he began his incredible journey from a weak, sickly pup to a chubby, healthy, and loving boy.
Day 1: The Fight for Survival Begins
Little Tyson was in bad shape when he arrived at the vet. He was severely dehydrated and emaciated, and his hip wound was old and infected. The vet team immediately started him on IV fluids and antibiotics to stabilize his condition.
Day 4: The Brave Little Fighter
Despite testing positive for distemper, Tyson continued to fight for his life. He had a good appetite, which was crucial for his recovery, and he showed remarkable bravery despite the pain and discomfort caused by his infected paw.
Day 20: Playful and Healing
Tyson’s progress was evident on day 20. He had gained weight, his wound had healed, and he had become a playful, cuddly boy who loved to nibble on hands. Though he still had a cough, his caretakers were confident that it would eventually subside.
Day 40: Overcoming Adversity
As Tyson continued to heal, his coughing persisted, but his caretakers refused to give up on him. They poured love and quality care into his recovery, and it paid off. Today, Tyson is a chubby, cuddly boy full of love and ready for his forever home.
Day 105: A Happy Ending
After overcoming distemper and other health challenges, Tyson’s coughing miraculously stopped on its own. He’s now a healthy, happy pup who loves kids, cats, and other dogs. Thanks to the kindness of his rescuers and adopters, Tyson is thriving in his new home in Belgium.
