Paralyzed pregnant dog dumped by breeders because her next delivery would be expensive

Maria the Dachshund was forced to breed despite her paralysis. But when breeders were told how her next delivery would cost $3,000 they decided to dump her.


Although many activists for animal rights are fighting and raising their voice against puppy mills in which dogs are bred over and over again in horrible and inhumane conditions, there are still many that are ran by people who make profit by selling puppies.

Maria is only one of the great number of dogs that are kept in cramped conditions in these puppy farms. She didn’t have it easy as her health condition was extremely poor, but was bred anyways. This poor mother-to-be is paralyzed from the ribs down and having the babies could put her life in danger.

Her owners were perfectly aware of this, and they knew the only way for her to deliver the puppies was via C-section that would cost a significant amount of money they weren’t willing to pay, so they simply got rid of her.

Luckily, beautiful Dachshund Maria was taken under the wing of the kind-hearted people from the rescue organization Friends of Emma.

They saved Maria’s life by taking her to the vet who treated her for anemia and flea infestation.

Maria got her happy ending and gave birth to a litter of puppies. Hopefully, this family will be adopted by people who will show them what it means to be loved.
