Is she a miracle? Or is she just living on borrowed time …. The truth is, we don’t know. All we can do is cheer her on.
Kunzite’s mom came to Best Friends with the parvo virus. This is very dangerous to puppies. They had to be immediately taken away from her, and they were only a couple days old. Growing up without your mom is hard enough for puppies that age. But they all went into foster homes who bottle fed them every few hours, and watched over them dotingly. Still, they had already been exposed to their mom, and it started showing.
As they grew, their hearts and lungs did not grow with them. And they began to die suddenly, one at a time. Talk about some broken-hearted foster moms! The weeks passed, and Kunzite’s foster mom kept expecting symptoms to develop on the little youngster, just as they had in her siblings. But she seemed to be growing into a playful, normal pup. At six weeks old, she was still with us.
Is she destined to be an unlikely survivor? It’s a scary situation. One thing’s for sure. She’ll need the vets, and a lot of guardian angels to watch over her …
