Woman Saw A Stray Puppy Crawling By The River With A Cut-Off Leg. She Brought It Home And 2 Weeks Later…

L.A. On Cloud 9, a non-profit organization that helps get food to homeless people and their pets, was in South Los Angeles, when they spotted a dog in the canal and made the call. They were told that a homeless man strangled the dog and cut off his leg before tossing him, into the basin.

This little guy had just spent 2 days inside the Los Angeles River, clinging to life on an empty potato chip sack. He had severe mange, bacterial infections, was malnourished, dehydrated and missing a limb.

Hope for Paws co-founder Eldad Hagar used a ladder to get into the basin to retrieve the pup. That is when he discovered the severed leg. The dog was in so much pain that he had to be placed inside a basket and craned out. He was given the name Jordan (as in the River) while being rushed to the Veterinary hospital in critical condition.

The Veterinarian said it was a miracle Jordan was still alive. On his third day he was given a bath and blood transfusion. On his fourth day he was finally strong enough for surgery. And a few days after that ready to go to his foster home.

2 weeks later he got his stitches taken out, and treats for being brave of course. He continued getting stronger with physical therapy, and emotional support from his furry foster siblings, Frankie and Lola.

By all appearances Jordan is not even aware that he is missing a leg. If he is disabled he doesn’t seem to know it. He loves to swim and run. Jordan’s story is remarkable and inspiring.
