Starving Pit Bull Puppy, Once Near Death, Now Radiates Joy and Resilience in Heartwarming Tale

A tiny Pit Bull puppy was found on the side of the road in a gutter and left for dead. Tig was abandoned at just 9 months old and was so emaciated and hypothermic his rescuers didn’t know if he would survive the night let alone the next hour.

Thankfully he was spotted in time and rushed to hospital. “Had we waited any longer, I don’t think he would have made it,” said Humane Law Enforcement Officers (HLE) Thomas Ingle with the Humane Rescue Alliance.

Tig went into the home of Kim O’Keefe, an experienced foster caregiver, who kept a close eye on him. Over the next 24 hours Tig was very weak and it was difficult to know if he would make it. But Kim recognized something in Tig’s eyes – a will to live.

Tig pulled through and a week later he was able to sit up on his own. For 11 weeks he was looked after carefully while he gained back weight and mobility.

Not long after Tig was adopted into a wonderful home with Megan and he now “he spends his days going on walks, playing, and snuggling with his new canine brother and sister.”
