Abandoned Chihuahua dog surprises everyone with her determination to live.
This is the story of Lemon, a little Chihuahua who was rescued from the streets, her situation was alarming, she looked like a tiny lump of bony skin, with a lost look and full of fear.
She was emaciated, hyperthermic and dehydrated, so weak that she had no strength to stand, much less walk.
Her recovery process was quite slow, but the little dog seemed ready to fight for her life.
During the first days she was placed in a feeding tube to help her gain weight, her eyes were bulging, and she presented an inflammation in the tissues of that area that could affect the optic nerve.
Her rescuers did not know if it was the result of an ulcer or an eye perforation. He had several conditions and all needed to be treated.
In the midst of a not very encouraging panorama, little Luna kept wagging her little tail, it was as if she wanted to say that she was willing to fight and not to be left alone.
Little by little she was revealing small changes that encouraged her caregivers to keep going, after days of total uncertainty, they removed her feeding tube and gave her small portions of food throughout the day. Incredibly, soon after, she surprised everyone by taking her first steps.
Lemon did everything in her power, if she tried to walk and fell down, she got up and kept going, her fighting spirit moved those who were experiencing such an incredible transformation up close.
