When this stray dog got hit by a passing car, she ended up lying paralyzed in the snow, just waiting for death to come. The poor thing had a broken pelvis and her temperature was reaching a dangerous low. “Her body heat had actually created a hole in the snow,” Amber Perry of the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) told The Dodo. “So she was hard to see when they were coming back to look for her… With all the grass and everything, she was quite camouflaged”.

Luckily, a couple of teenagers spotted the dog. “She was very approachable, but she was unable to move her back end,” says Perry. The woman adds: “She was wagging her tail a little bit.”

The pooch ended up getting the emergency treatment she needed and was taken to a shelter, where she’s getting pain medication, and lots of care and TLC. They called the doggie Nutmeg, and a brighter chapter of her life began.

“She’s still wagging her tail… She’s really happy. Once she’s all healed up, she’ll be ready for adoption.”
