The founder of a foster-based rescue group called The Abandoned Ones Animal Rescue, Judy Obregon, was driving through her usual route in the neighborhood. She saw a Pitbull when she was in the area of Echo Lake, a known dog dumping ground.
At first, she really thought that the dog was dead, but she lifted her head. As Judy came closer, she tried to stand up and walk. However, she could not use her back legs and fell again.
The dog needed emergency care, so Judy lifted her to the car. As she was driving her to the animal hospital, she kept giving her assurances and offered her hand. The dog put out her paw and held Judy’s hand until they reached the hospital.
At the Animal Hospital of Valley Ranch, they found out that she had several fractures. According to the vet, she was not hit by a car. Most likely, she was deliberately hurt by a human. Fortunately, the fractures would heal naturally and not leave permanent damage to her legs.
By this time, Judy started calling the dog Mercy. She took her to Creekside Pet Care Center for recovery. They tried to put her in a wheelchair, but she refused to use it. The following day, she walked on her own.
Everyone at Creekside Pet Center loved Mercy so much. They gave her a pink stuffed bunny, and she became attached to it. Jamie, an employee at Creekside, fostered her until her recovery was complete.
A couple named Mark and Sharon learned about Mercy’s story, and they adopted her. They were amazed at how sweet she was despite the abuse she went through in the past. The couple gave updates to Judy. They told her how Mercy still loved her pink bunny, and she had fun chasing a ball in the big yard.
Mercy remembered Judy when she came over to visit. She was beside herself with excitement and started kissing her. Judy was glad to see that she was healthy and so happy.
