Treya the dog has lived a difficult life and this dog once had a forever home to call her very own. However, when her original owners moved away and left her behind without a worry or a care, she was left to fend for herself. This is not a fate that we would wish on our worst enemy, let alone a beautiful pup like this one.
She spent five years residing under the home’s deck and she was completely and totally alone. She was only able to survive because of the efforts of kindly neighbors who provided her with food and they also gave her a bed of hay to sleep on, but they never contacted anyone to offer her further assistance.
Treya had no ability to leave, due to the fact that she was left under the house chained up. This dog finally decided to take matters into her own hands, as the chain became tightly wound around her paw. Instead of waiting to see if someone would rescue her from her horrific conditions, she took drastic measures.
She freed herself by gnawing at her own paw and we are heartbroken to find out that she needed to go to these lengths. She was then taken in by the good people at the Stray Rescue of St. Louis and given the medication that she needed for a skin infection and heart worm.
Poor Treya has gone without human love and affection for so long, she will need to experience a significant period of socialization before she finds a home to call her own. While she is now receiving the love she deserves, the pup has a very long road ahead of her and we wish her all of the best.
Treya now has a foster home and the shelter is also working tirelessly to provide her with a prosthetic leg.
