Lemon is the name of a Chihuahua that was found as a stray. She was brought to a shelter and she only weighed two and a half pounds. She was so weak, she wasn’t even able to sit up straight. It was one of the saddest things that the shelter had ever seen.
They knew she needed to get some serious help – and they began feeding her. They had to use a feeding tube in order to get all of the food to her. After 30 days of being in a foster care – there was a considerable amount of weight gain. Actually, within 3 days of being in the care of someone who wanted to look out for Lemon, she could sit upright. Then she began walking.
Lemon had a fighting spirit, though, and everyone had noticed that. She knew she could do it, especially if she was getting the food she needed. The video is going to break your heart when you see just how small she was in the beginning. She even needed therapy to help her with the way she was laying. Her eye sight improved and she began getting healthier.
It was no time at all that she started to make friends with some of the other dogs around. She lived with Rosie, a Pitbull and the two of them became friends. It was actually heartwarming to see how the two of them got along, despite the size difference between the two of them.
As Lemon started to get more love, there are photos of her with toys, playing dress up, and so much more. She’s a sweet dog and for her to be abandoned and malnourished is beyond heart breaking. She’s come a long way over her journey and she still has a ways to go, but she’s getting there – and she has the spirit to make it happen.
The best part about it is that there was an update – and Lemon was able to go to a forever home in February 2016, where she was able to get all the love she needed.
