On Christmas Eve, a dog named Tiggy was rescued after being entirely abandoned on the streets of Blythe, Northumberland (England). Tiggy was ruthlessly tossed into the streets in a critical state, to the point that she was nearly abandoned for dead.
Her state was horrible; she was practically skin and bones, with no fur, visible ribcage, and protruding ribs, a scenario that made one fear the worse for the dog.
According to the Daily Mail, she was located by animal welfare officers, who were responsible for rescuing her from the streets and transporting her to Berwick Animal Rescue Kennels (BARK), where she was treated and given the resources she needed to recuperate.
Despite the fact that the personnel in charge of her care assumed Tiggy would not survive Christmas owing to her poor state, she suddenly began to improve.
It’s worth noting how crucial BARK and its manager, Jan Ross, were in Tiggy’s remarkable recovery, as she received special attention from the moment she arrived.
The dog had to reside in a home because she couldn’t be with the other dogs, and she was given a proper nutrition to help her regain her weight, as she weighed about 24 pounds when she arrived at the shelter, which was significantly below average.
According to Jan:
“When I first saw the dog, I was filled with amazement, terror, panic, relief, and an immediate love for his battling spirit.”
Tiggy was put through many medical examinations because it was assumed she was unwell owing to her situation. To everyone’s amazement, the dog merely needed parasite treatment and proper nourishment.
For the time being, it is unknown why they did this to Tiggy, and who abandoned her.
Tiggy’s terrible story has gone viral, drawing the attention of Northumberland County Council, who are working hard to uncover the perpetrators.
The group appealed to the public for any information regarding the abandoned dog’s situation in order to track down those guilty.
“This is a stunning and outrageous example of neglect, and we’re extremely interested in learning more about how he became so thin and bringing the person(s) involved accountable.”
In terms of her recuperation, the dog has made remarkable progress; she has gained weight and her physical look has much improved; her attitude toward other people and dogs has also altered, and her confidence has grown.
