Two homeless dogs who were critically ill over the holidays found comfort and joy with each other when they met in a vet hospital.“Baby Mariah was lifeless and hypothermic, found abandoned on Christmas Eve,” wrote Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs, of the small, 6-week-old puppy rescued from a parking lot.
She was found covered in her own excrement and freezing to death.
“Olaf was badly bitten by a snake and had a horrible infection.” His family could not afford to give him medical care and surrendered him to a shelter. By then, his leg was in very bad shape and needed surgery.
Both were in intensive care when they met.
The large one-year-old Mastiff hobbled over to Mariah and gave her a sniff. From that moment on, the two were friends.
They are keeping each other company…
And helping each other heal.
