An unidentifiable blue pit bull was rescued from the side of the road after being hit by a car in New Mexico. She might have died if it hadn’t been for the Sandoval County Sheriff on Tuesday that found her. The dog that they named Beretta was taken to the vet for treatment, according to KRQE on March 2. After her injuries and not being able to find her owners, she was set to be euthanized until a special group swept in to make sure that didn't happen.
Despite the injuries that she sustained in the accident, Beretta is said to be a friendly pooch. She is believed to have been well cared for before the hit and run. No signs of neglect at all, which means that she may have an owner out there looking for her. The pooch had no ID tag to be able to find out just who she belongs to.
Thanks to the non-profit agency called NM DOG that came to her rescue before she was to be destroyed, they are now trying to find her family. If no one comes to claim her, Beretta will be adopted out to a loving home where she will be cared for and loved.
“We think she’s got a family out there that’s probably missing her. We would like more than anything to return her or reunite her with her family,” said president of NM DOG, Angela Stell.
The dog is recovering right now and a foster home is where the agency would like to have her rest and be cared for during this time. Beretta has nerve damage in her right leg and some trauma in her neck. She is on medications and also physical therapy to help her to get back on her feet. However, she is still in danger of losing her right leg. Being in a foster home may help her to feel less afraid and alone.
If anyone recognizes this sweet dog and may know who she belongs to, please contact NM DOG.
