Hada, a chihuahua with 15 broken bones

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

A fairy is sitting on my lap.

As I write this tiny dog, a chihuahua called Hada (Fairy in spanish), looks at me in the eye and wonders what’s going to happen next. She’s only three months old, barely 2 kilos, most of her teeth haven’t come out yet.
There is no fear in her eyes, she feels safe….

It’s been already a few days since Hada suffered what must have been horrific abuse and had her tiny little body broken in 15 places. It’s rare to see a dog so small with as many fractures, and a real miracle that none of the 14 broken ribs perforated her lungs and killed her. Personally, based on the injuries I believe she was kicked like a football.

And then there is the jaw... brutally fractured and unable to heal by itself stops her from being able to eat. Every bite is a struggle.. even licking my finger makes her whimper afterwards.


Imagine the pain and anguish of being prisoner in such a tiny, broken body, living in a world of giants, struggling to breath because your ribs and your jaw are broken.

For once, imagine being a Fairy…

The ribs seem to be setting on their own but we are going to keep a very close eye on them to make sure there are no complications. But the jaw must be operated immediately. Operating a dog of Hada’s side is a challenge in itself, the equipment is different, so is the strategy to follow.

 

Please, if you can, help us fix Hada’s multiple fractures and offer her a great new life by contributing to her Chipin.  Whatever happens I promise you we will not let Hada down…

Many thanks!

Viktor

    Viktor, I was finally able to get it to go through. Sorry it was not more wished I could give me. This story hits very close to home. I adopted an abused Chihuahua two years ago. She was not as bad but as soon as I read Hada’s story it brought back tears. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO!!!!

    so sad that humans do this to those who cannot defend and speak for themselves. ive got a chihuahua and she is my life, my baby, my all, i cant imagine how anyone who does this to a animal could have a heart, because if they did they would feel what we as animal lovers feel, sad,lost,depressed and the list goes on. all my love and blessings for little Hada. may she heal and may the right family find her and not her them!!!! xxxxxx

    Viktor … you are an amazing man and your staff as well to care and mend these animals that are abused. Did they get the person who did this ? Please keep us posted on the donations and how Hada and Tidus are coming along. God bless you all for your life-saving abilities and your compassion … hugs (“”) (“”)

    Speedy recovery for you Hada and Tidus <3

    I just donated for Hada and previously donated for precious Tidus. Thank you Viktor and your organization for all you do. You are all Angels on earth. These gentle animals don’t deserve any of the cruelty they have been through. Per Hada…she’s just a baby that hasn’t begun to live her life yet. I’m so happy that you have her now and to know that she is on her way to recovery. I also pray she’ll eventually be placed in a loving home that she deserves. Many hugs and lots of love for the work you are all doing for these precious animals.

    Dear Lord be with this beautiful little girl. She needs lots of love and care and bring her good health, heal her and find her the perfect forever home. God bless her sweet disposition – giving kisses while she must be in pain. Thank you. Amen!

    Many thanks Miriam.. we are going to operate her on Monday and she already has a foster home to go to.. I will be sending you an email about her.
    Thanks for being there for our animals… thank you

  12. Viktor Larkhill

    Joanne, we have no idea who did it… it’s impossible to know really..
    I’m going to try to send an email to all Tidus donors today, there was a problem with the software and I couldn’t get all the list. Will do my best, in the meantime I’m trying to update as much as I can from our page..
    Many thanks Joanne, thank you..

  13. Viktor Larkhill

    Charmain, yes.. I think it gets automatically transfered into USDA…
    thanks for your help..

    Donated a little, just sorry I couldn’t give more right now…sending hugs and lots of love to Hada from our entire family and dog pack (and chihuahua kisses from my own chi, Foxy)

    Oh Hada – sweet baby – Viktor, I donated money to Tidus, and to a dog named Molly at a rescue near my town, I want to help Hada, I have a Chihuahua and no matter how mad she makes me I could never imagine kicking her (or any animal). I wish to have all of the money in the world to be able to help all of the animals of the world to not have to suffer from anything. As soon as I am able I will make a donation for this sweet little dog. I live in the US, and perhaps there are ways I could help without money because I don’t always have extra to donate. You are wonderful for what you do, please kiss her on her cold wet nose for me!
