When Hope For Paws Animal Rescue received a call about a stray dog that had collapsed in someone's backyard, rescuers wasted no time responding to the call.
Hagar and Frankonyte found the dog lying on a mat. He seemed happy to see his rescuers arrive but was clearly in need of immediate medical attention.
The dog was in a great deal of pain and bared his teeth when they first tried to move him. Eventually, they were able to fashion a makeshift gurney out of a blanket and load the dog, whom they named Milo, into the car.
Hagar and Frankonyte rushed Milo to a veterinary hospital where he was examined and his paw was x-rayed. The x-ray revealed that nothing was broken, but he had a serious infection that was likely the result of a bite wound.
After some pain meds, antibiotics, and a bath, Milo was feeling much better.
Check out Milo's amazing rescue in the video below:
