This Little Puppy Was Found Injured But Now He Is So Happy To Have A Loving Home

Many people have a soft place for dogs, but some take it to the next level. That is the situation with the people in charge of Beauties and the Beasts Rescue.They devote their time and energy to assisting little animals who are unable to help themselves. That's why they were so fast to respond when they received a call about a young pit bull puppy that had been hurt in an attack by another dog.

The dog had been taken to a local veterinarian, so members of the rescue went there to assist. It didn't matter that it was Christmas Eve; they recognized that the dog's bite wounds required emergency attention. It had bitten him all over his body, and his head was swelled. To make matters worse, it appeared that this puppy had not eaten in a long time.

This rescue took place in Wichita, Kansas, and the medical bills related with it were reimbursed. They also named the puppy Jonah.

Kristin Seawell, Jonah's new foster mother, stated that if a few more days had elapsed, the results would have been even worse. Jonah was just ten weeks old and weighed barely four pounds. He was famished to the point that his hair was falling out.

Jonah fought valiantly for his life and was a happy little puppy. He couldn't stop smiling when he met his new foster mom and her husband!

He was cleared to go home after a few days of specialized care at the veterinary. The Seawells have extensive experience in these types of issues. Things seemed to be going well at first, but his front legs collapsed a few days later.

Seawell stated that he was walking down the hallway when his legs suddenly gave way. The veterinarian believes that his muscles and tendons were compromised due to malnourishment during his first few weeks of life.

The vet fitted Jonah with braces and supports to aid rehabilitate his front legs. It didn't take him long to grow used to them, and he took advantage of them whenever he needed a snack!

Feeding time has been a major training ground for the Seawells. He sits and waits as they prepare his dinner, but he keeps tapping his paws on the floor.

Jonah's development continued, and he began to feel better within a few weeks. Jonah has benefited from the additional food and braces, but he also receives love from his new sister, Ariel.

Ariel was a rescue dog as well. She was rescued by Beauties and Beasts and found this new home. She was mistreated so badly by her previous owner that she now lacks a leg.

Ariel was scarred after being used as a combat bait dog. Her lips was wired shut, and one of her legs was severed. These two seem to have a really personal bond.

Jonah was terrified of other dogs since he had been attacked at an early age. Ariel assisted him in determining his degree of comfort. When another dog brought Jonah a toy, he would defend himself. He had trouble trusting at first, but Ariel taught him how to play.

Jonah has been in the care of the foster family for one month and is nearly recovered.

He's seeking for a forever home now that he's been cleared by the veterinarian.

Jonah will represent Beauties and the Beasts in local Wichita community events until he finds a forever home. He'll be spreading the word about the work that saved his life.

Jonah is here as a result of [the rescue], Sewell explained. He's going to a local Girl Scout troop this week to tell them about what to do if you see a dog in difficulty and they'll get to hear his story.
