Meet NINJA! He is an adorable loving 1 1/2 year old that has been rescued from the streets of Thailand. Here is his incredible story told by his rescuer-
I saw a post on Dec.30, 2015 asking someone to help a young stray who was reported to be beaten and paralyzed. It was during the time when people were out celebrating, so no one was interested in this kind of post.
I sent a pet taxi and took him to my regular vet. The x-ray showed fractures in the spine around his neck which made him paralyzed. The vet recommended to send him to Kasetsart Vet Hospital, the biggest vet in the country to have a specialist operate on him.
It was quite a decision for me as referring Ninja to Kasetsart Vet Hospital is time consuming (they need to re-exam everything new and each process (e.g, x-ray, blood test, mri scan) was normally scheduled on different days). Not to mention, cost for operation for Ninja would be a fortune.
I posted his story on FB and said that I work full-time and am not be able to take Ninja to Kasetsart Vet that often for pre-operate process. I had to hire someone to do so. Plus, cost of operation was overwhelming. Surprisingly, people started to donate and asked me to help him walk knowing that Ninja was estimated to be about 1 year old. They wanted to see this young stray have a new life, and not a sleeping living.
I then got him to Kasetsart Vet by hiring someone to do so. Ninja was taken back and forth more than 6 times for the pre-operation. Each time took more than 3-4 hours there. Finally the operation was scheduled on February 23rd, 2016.
The operation was successful and Ninja was required to stay there for a week. I picked him up after a week to the pet hotel where my other 26 rescues were.
At the pet hotel, the physical therapy was done 5 times a day. Ninja started to get his head up during the first week. The second week, he started to sit and stand. The third week, Ninja started to crawl. ..... and only 3-4 days after his first crawl on the floor, he started to stand and run.
It brought tears to many people seeing him run. People who live close to the dog hotel, my FB friends who supported Ninja's vet expenses, the caregivers, and myself were gathered on that weekend to see him run and celebrate his new life.
Ninja has lived at the pet hotel since. I want the best for him. Ninja deserves the best and better than what I have given him.
Ninja is a gentle dog, very sweet, and friendly to dogs, cats, and humans. He is very special. I cannot believe he was a street dog. If any dogs, even smaller ones try to steal his treats, he lets them.
I love Ninja dearly and want the best for him. Ninja should be among lovely people and having a good family of his own who will care and cherish him.
It is difficult to let go a lovely friend and a treasure like Ninja, but he is only less than 2 years old. He should get a very dream-like life and be so happy for the rest of his years. With my limited resources and ability, I cannot give him what he deserves.
Ninja is now in America and waiting for his chance at a forever home. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
