A rescuer received a message about a dog who was believed to be dead lying under a tree. When they got closer, they realized she was still alive but covered in hundreds of bumps that turned out to be ticks. Tika couldn’t stand on her own, but she was happy to see help had arrived and started wagging that tail!
Local clinics didn’t want to take her in out of fear that the ticks would infest their buildings, so the rescuer took Tika home to remove the ticks and bathe her herself. When the dog stood during her washing, it was then they noticed she was pregnant! Tika would be provided a nice room and plenty of food while she waited to give birth in this second chance at life. 🙂
