Severely Injured Dog Who Went Through Hell Making Miraculous Recovery

Harris was found wrapped in a blanket by the side of a road. The sweet pup was skin and bones and his right side was covered in open wounds. Thankfully he was spotted by a Good Samaritan who brought him to Stray Rescue of Saint Louis on March 16, 2019.

His condition was so dire that rescuers and caregivers stayed with him day and night and he needed a feeding tube for a week.

There were several times it was “touch and go” and they didn’t know if Harris would pull through. But he felt the love and care he was getting and hung on.

After a week of intensive care he was finally able to drink and eat on his own. But he then developed pneumonia. Stray Rescue noted that he just couldn’t catch a break. He had to be given breathing treatments and watched carefully, but again he pulled through.

“He is truly our miracle in the making,” Stray Rescue said.

Three weeks after he first arrived, Harris sat up.
