After the car hit her, Nutmeg took refuge in a snow-filled ditch and stayed there for 12 hours before anyone noticed.
The life of this sweet little dog named Nutmeg, especially at the beginning, it was anything but lenient. She not only found herself living alone on the street, but she was also hit by a car that didn’t stop. The puppy spent more than 12 hours in a snow-filled ditch before anyone noticed her.
We truly believe that everyone loves it name? Of course, it is white, soft, fluffy and creates a truly suggestive atmosphere when it covers landscapes and objects. But it is also true that it is incredibly cold and causes thousands of dead every year in every part of the world, both among humans and among poor stray animals.
As if it were not enough to fight against hunger, thirst and winter cold, the dog protagonist of this story was also hit by a car. Car driven by a man who then didn’t even stop or turn around to see what had happened.
The puppy, who in the impact had suffered a very painful and disabling fracture in the pelvis, lay down in a moat on the side of the road and never moved. He could not get up, much less walk. And stay motionless in the snow for all those hours it posed an even greater risk.
Nutmeg’s rescue and his new life
Usually that Street it is always very busy and frequented by joggers, but with those temperatures and with the snow on the ground it was literally deserted.
Nutmeg was in danger of freezing to death before anyone noticed her.
Fortunately, though, two daredevil hikers they had decided to take a trip anyway and passed right next to the bed where the puppy had taken refuge. They immediately contacted the volunteers of an association who hurriedly arrived on the spot to save the puppy.
It took more than 10 weeks for Nutmeg to return to her full form, but she never gave up and eventually made it. Given its sweetness, it didn’t take long before one loving family fall in love with her and decide to adopt her forever.
