Last week, Princess’ story almost came to a heartbreaking end. The little Maltese had been tossed into a trash can, still alive, still clinging to hope. And had it not been for the sharp eye of a Good Samaritan, who spotted Princess’ head move when she went to throw away a trash bag, Princess likely would have been lost forever.
Thankfully, the Good Samaritan rescued Princess and brought her to the Arizona Humane Society, where our veterinarians determined that the 8-year-old’s leg had slipped out of socket and would sadly require amputation, which was performed by our Second Chance Animal Hospital™ medical team.
Princess’ troubling story, however, has a fairytale ending. Shortly after her arrival at AHS, a family came searching for their lost dog who had gone missing when they were out of town. Turns out, Princess had gotten out under the care of a pet sitter and vanished.
When Princess saw her owners, she was overcome with excitement, and is now recovering with her loving family back at home.
