Dog on the mend after beind found buried alive, swollen and sunburned
Leialoha has been placed with a foster family and could have a new forever home soon.
A dog who was found buried alive in sand is healing well after being rescued from her grisly predicament.
Leialoha, which means “beloved child”, was found by a staff member from Paws of Hawaii – swollen, covered in sores, sundburned and with 90% of her fur missing.
In the post, Paws appealed for donations and for potential foster families to come forward.
And within a couple of days, they had raised enough money to cover her medical bills, as well as placing her in a new foster home.
“She has a long way to go, but the worst is over.”
While she is “still a little hesitant and shy”, staff said she was making “consistent and just breathtaking” improvements.
And it seems she may soon have a new permanent home as well.
“We are very happy to say she has a wonderful family from Hawai’i (Big Island) interested in giving her a forever home once she’s healing up.”
