Amarillo Panhandle Humane Society Provides Positive Update Regarding Injured Dog | KAMR
AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — A dog is recovering and doing well after being found stabbed in the neck and nose.
To say Raja’s story is heartbreaking might be an understatement.
“She had been stabbed in the neck and nose. She had six babies who had passed away, just the look of defeat on her face when we met her. She just looked so broken. She is very lucky to be here. Honestly, I don’t know how she’s doing,” said Cynthia Clark, director of operations for the Amarillo Panhandle Humane Society.
After her discovery, Raja was stabilized and taken to Timber Creek Small Animal Hospital where they kept her for a few days.
“They groomed her for release and she has been in foster care ever since. His neck cleared pretty well,” Clark said.
Although she is doing well medically, Clark said Raja still has a lot of behavioral issues to work on, which is to be expected after what she’s been through.
“What attracted me the most about Raja was that from the moment I met her, she was so confident. She is fearless and I think you can say a lot about that. If people were half as great as she was, then it would be a much better world. This job is tough and it’s just an emotionally heavy thing to deal with every day. To be able to see how loving she is and confident really helped me have a different outlook on life,” Clark said.
In more good news for Raja, Clark said she was just allowed to play with other dogs last Friday.
