A pup abandoned by her family proved that she was a survivor after making a swift recovery.


A family dropped off their 6-week-old puppy named Bo at a veterinary. Assuming that she was paralyzed, they asked the vet to euthanize the pup.

Hand In Paw, the veterinary that took Bo in, shared a post on Facebook explaining the tragic circumstances in which the pup was brought to them.

The post informed that the pup's previous family had clearly mentioned that they 'didn't want her.' They immediately signed her over and told the vet that they did not want to do any treatment other than euthanasia.


When the family left, Dr. Z of the veterinary immediately began the dog's treatment and discovered that it wasn't paralyzed. The doctor's diagnosis showed that it was just a case of low blood sugar because of which the pup was unable to move.

Following the treatment, the pup was up and about in under ten minutes and was starting to move around comfortably.

'Today, she is standing and eating on her own! She is only 6 weeks old, but will certainly have a full, wonderful life ahead!' the Facebook post that was uploaded about a year ago informed.


On June 7, 2017, the veterinary again took to Facebook to share latest photographs of Bo and updated the fans and followers about the health status of the survivor pup.

Admitting in their Facebook post that they hadn't been updating about Bo as much as they would have liked, the veterinary informed that the pup was doing 'so much better' than what they had initially thought.

The Facebook also informed that Bo was still being treated for 'puppy strangles' but they believed that she would recover in 'no time.'
