A Greyhound dog needed to somehow communicate that she needed help. The dog herself already had a broken leg, but her call for help was not about her, rather, it was a compelling urgency to rescue her litter of puppies.
Lianne Powell was out for a walk one day in Southern Spain. A dog walking ahead of them captured her attention because she could see that the dog was bleeding from one of her legs. Lianne could clearly see that this Greyhound was a recent mother, given she was in the state of nursing milk for her pups. Of course, she wondered, where are these puppies?
The dog was behaving in a way that seemed to Lianne that she wanted her to follow her. And so she did, but only after they brought her to a veterinarian to have her leg looked at. The momma dog did indeed have a broken leg and was treated immediately.
“Her broken leg was fresh but we don’t really know what happened, she could have been hit by a car but she had no other wounds, maybe someone kicked her but we just don’t know– it was a clean break,” Powell said.
There was a relief, celebration, and plenty of tears at what had just occurred.
The abandoned mom of ten pups was given the name Vera by Lianne and Ellen, and the puppies were well-cared for at Ellen’s Surgery Clinivet Turre.
