Brownie's story was one of the saddest we’ve ever encountered... We were alerted to a horrific case with a dog literally on death's door. Brownie, a tiny little pup was found on the floor of an office building in Brooklyn, NY, unable to get up or move. We received a call from her finders and immediately stepped in. Brownie’s finders brought her to Veterinary Emergency and Referral Group and the AMA Team officially took over her care immediately - admitting her to the emergency hospital. We knew it was a serious case, but we couldn’t imagine nearly how bad her injuries were. The surgeons and veterinarians confirmed the worst, Brownie needed emergency surgery for internal bleeding, and to repair a hernia that was caused by BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA to this poor little 10-pound dog. Without a second thought, we signed off on her surgery estimate because we knew that if we didn’t proceed right away, Brownie likely wouldn’t make it through the night. After a very long surgery, we got a call from the hospital vet letting us know that Brownie had many further internal injuries than initially suspected: prepubic tendon rupture, body wall hernia, splenectomy (removal of the spleen as it was ruptured), resection of the intestine (a part of the intestine had to be removed completely because it died in the body from the trauma.) Our veterinarians made it clear to us that if she wasn't hospitalized that same night, she wouldn't have made it. So many people stepped up to help us cover Brownie’s medical bills, and together we were able to save her life. Meanwhile, the kind Samaritans who first found Brownie dying in an office building began searching everywhere for her rightful owners. And eventually, we found her so-called rightful owners. What should have been the best news ever quickly became confusing and frustrating. After a few phone calls back and forth we understood that Brownie is not exactly waited on and expected with open, loving arms. Her previous owners didn't exactly want her back. We were shocked but most importantly disappointed and sad for our Brownie girl. After all she has already endured, this wasn't supposed to happen. She might have lost her humans but she gained all of us! And the best part? One of our amazing volunteers agreed to foster Brownie after she was discharged from the hospital. Due to the severe trauma, Brownie needed a lot of care- multiple bandages, medications, frequent post-op vet visits, and luckily her foster mom was willing to do anything that was necessary and more. We were excited to watch our sweet girl recover and open up more and more every day. But the good news didn’t end there. After everything she’s been through, it was finally time for her to get what she deserves- forever family of her own. She was lucky enough to survive the unimaginable pain and betrayal from her previous owners, but that didn’t break her spirit. And today is the day when she gets to experience what unconditional love truly means. Today is the beginning of her happily ever after! Enjoy the rest of your life, Brownie, you deserve it. We will always miss you. ❤️❤️❤️
