Our founder Du Yufeng received a call asking her to rescue a dog who had been wandering in Nanhe District. When Du took the dog to Doctor Li's pet hospital for her check up appointment, they noticed something diferent...
She didn't have a tongue!
Doctor Li said it is possible that someone did this to her on purpose and then dumped her. She was underweight and very dirty when Du picked her up from the street but she wasn't scared and she was patient with the vet's examinations leading us to believe that she has been around people before.
Whatever has happened to this little girl (now named Jue Xin meaning determined), she is now safe with us. Already she is feeding well. Du makes balls of soft food for her and puts it in her mouth. In the video at the end, you can see a slow motion of her eating. She is managing very well and is getting along with the other dogs too.
Doctor Li has given Du some oral antibacterial spray to stop any nasty bugs growing in the dogs mouth, because she has no tongue to move food out of unwanted places.
We will never know what has happened to her but when the world is safe again we hope that someone abroad who has some experience with special needs dogs can give her a loving home. Surviving life on the street is tough for any dog but for a dog with no tongue who cannot scavenge most food that able bodied dogs do is a lot worse.
We hope Jue Xin finds her happy ever after soon ❤
She deserves to
Jue Xin is doing really well. She has even learnt herself to eat. To make sure she has plenty of water each day we put it in her food and put her bowl in a crate so that the other dogs don't eat it. She takes her time eating due to her disability but apart from that she is just a little sweetheart who wants to be loved like any other dog.
She has been sterilised by Doctor Zhong who has travelled from Chengdu for a few days with his team. They are working in to the night to sterilise as many dogs as they can.
We really hope she finds that special forever home soon. She deserves to know what a home really is 🐾❤
