Valor was found wandering on a road in Texas last month. He is partially blind.
Lorrie Anding, who works for Cuz i Matter Animal Rescue says she believes Valor was given the wrong dose of the lethal drug used for euthanasia.
“I’ve never heard of that before. It’s unbelievable,” Anding said.
They would have discarded Valor, thinking he was dead. But he was still alive.
“When he woke up he started running. It took a local shelter four days to finally get their hands on him,” Anding said. “He was petrified of leashes and people.”
There was still a possibility Valor would be sent to a shelter where he would be euthanized again so a local shelter reached out.
Thankfully, Anding was able to find a foster mom, Kathryn Lippert. Lippert has been helping Valor socialize again.
Although blind and infected with heartworms, Valor has come a long way.
“He is doing great,” Anding said. “He is with a really good foster family. He has a very good personality but he is still warming up to humans.”
Valor is 2 0r 3, and a blue heeler mix. He loves to be around other dogs. Now that he is available to adopt, they want to place him with someone who has other animals.
