The life of a puppy, named Taka, almost ended in a fire. Last week, the eight-year-old’s home caught fire while he was on a porch.
Even though his family tried, they couldn’t get there in time and had to leave the house.
A miracle happened.
Taka managed to escape the porch alone and ran down the street. A kind neighbor finally found the dog and went to CMA Hospital
Taka’s eyes were also seriously injured… Unfortunately, he eventually became blind.
When Taka began to have trouble breathing, the veterinary team transferred the puppy to the University of Georgia clinic.
There it could be connected to an oxygen machine. After a few days, Taka was strong enough to return to the hospital, and they are doing everything they can to help.
Martin was moved.
Martin spoke to Taka’s family shortly after arriving at the veterinary hospital, and they eventually turned Taka over to Martin’s care due to his health. Since then, Martin has decided to become more than just Taka’s veterinarian: she has become his mother.
Since the hospital is not open 24 hours a day, Martin took Taka home at night. So he didn’t have to sleep alone. The next day, Martin crawled into Taka’s kennel at the veterinary hospital and they slept together.
One of Martin’s colleagues captured the mellow moment:
For Martin, one of the most amazing things about Taka is his gentleness, despite everything he’s going through.
Often, when animals are in pain, they start biting. However, he did not try to bite once.
While it’s still early to say how the burns will affect Taka in the long run, Martin and the other vets are optimistic about his recovery, especially since he eats and goes to the bathroom alone.
«He’s really in a lot of pain, but hopefully he’ll be fine,» Martin said.
Taka’s personality begins to shine.
Martin became very attached to Taka and thought about adopting him forever. However, the woman already has five other dogs and a seven-month-old baby. So she admits that her home may not be the ideal place for Taka, who will need a lot of one-on-one care.
Martin is determined to find the best home for him, with people who recognize the special dog he is.
