Miraculous recovery of emaciated puppy fighting for his life

When a poor pup was found, she was so emaciated and scrawny, she was given only a 1% chance of survival.

They had never experienced the scene that their rescuers found, clearly the innocent dog had been the victim of the worst treatment and was debating between life and death.

The little pup named Xena, she was just skin and bones


Everyone who saw her photos when she was rescued after being cruelly thrown onto a road was truly horrified.

Xena was found by Animal Services in Creek, Georgia, USA, in such unfortunate physical condition that those responsible for her rescue burst into tears just by looking at her.

Poor little Xena, only 4 months old , was on the brink of starvation. She, well, she had spent much of her short life in a cage before she was dumped out of it like roadside waste.

He weighed just 2.5 kg when he arrived at the animal shelter.

But, thanks to the endless loving care of all the volunteers, he began to recover quickly.

However, her condition was still delicate, so the volunteers created a Facebook page to document and share the story of the little girl « Xena, the warrior puppy », in addition to asking the entire community for help. community.

Kind souls from all over the world began sending donations to help this brave little dog.

Soon, Xena was nicknamed the “miracle dog” because her life itself is already a miracle, and her rescue and recovery truly incredible. But, her great story of survival did not end there.

Later, the animal shelter created a foundation in Xena’s honor. The goal is to raise the money and means necessary to change stories like Xena’s, who was already strong enough to thank good people for helping her.

That’s how Grant and Linda Hickey from Johns Creek showed up at the foundation, and sweet Xena found herself captivated by them. The couple had a little boy diagnosed with severe autism, to the point that he never socialized or spoke. 

Although they already had experience with dogs, they really ventured to adopt Xena, since little Johnny had no emotional bond with anyone , neither his parents nor his other pets.

Linda relates that she didn’t even prepare Jonny for Xena’s arrival home. The little boy was waiting in the car, and when Xena climbed in for the first time, what they witnessed was a true miracle.

Immediately Xena climbed up his legs and started licking him and Jonny was letting her. Within seconds, she was telling him that he loved her,” Linda said through tears.

Somehow, when Linda saw Xena at the shelter and after following her entire story online, she knew that her son and the dog were fated to save each other.

Xena’s presence and love influenced the little boy so positively, that he began to speak, and to come out of his shell, and from the deep abyss from which he would hardly have emerged without her help.

Now Jonny talks to Xena all the time, and they’ve become inseparable best friends and partners in mischief, supporting each other in everything they do.

From their Facebook page, together they continue to spread a message of compassion for both animals and people with autism across the planet.

Although Xena’s life is marked by a cruel past, today she blesses Jonny’s life and his parents can’t help but celebrate the miracle they thought would never come into their lives.
