A hit and run left an older dog motionless on the side of the road in Istanbul, Turkey, in a cold and dirty puddle. No one knows how long she lay there with her voice unheard. It was rescue Sokaklar Bile Yasak Bize that was alerted to the dog, and they set out for rescue.
Upon arrival, it was clear in this heartbreaking scene that the dog had been there a while. Despite her pain and hunger, she was happy realizing that she was finally being rescued! Poyraz was taken back to the animal hospital completely emaciated and dehydrated.
Unfortunately, X-rays revealed fractures and infections in her front leg and a partial fracture in the hip. Poyraz had a first successful operation, and she was in good spirits and very active and alert! Sadly, the leg was beyond repair, and it would need to be amputated. But today, Poyraz is happy and healthy in this safe haven for dogs waiting to be adopted! 🙂
