Maya is a Husky dog that endured a life of misery and fear for many years, witnessing the worst of humans, until she was forced to reproduce in a pet kennel in Goiânia, Brazil, five years ago. Maya was already paralyzed as a result of the horrific abuse she received and the settings in which she was discovered.
Her health issues were irreparable, and she was no longer useful to the puppy mill, so they intended to euthanize her. But Silvia Rayssa stepped in just in time to save Maya, giving her a second shot at a happy life that would cure not only her body but also her soul’s scars.
Silvia believes that saving and caring for Maya was the finest thing that could have happened to both of them, and that the dog arrived in her life at just the right time for both of them to be rescued.
The lady explains:
«He didn’t exist, he didn’t live. My heart cried out for a “great and exceptional animal” that day, and I still remember it clearly. I’ll never be able to put into words how I felt in my spirit after that.
Maya was very frail and her health was very ill for the first 48 hours following her rescue, but she had a great determination to live in her eyes, and Silvia did not leave her side for a second.
“At first, Maya was a little concerned, but who could blame her? He’d never experienced a family’s affection, never felt a caress. He had only known a chilly and dark cage for the previous 5 years of his existence. She was solely aware of the worst aspects of human nature.
Maya began a protracted therapy after overcoming the initial hurdle in her health; they made many journeys to veterinary hospitals, but the damage to her body was already permanent, and she would never walk again. Now he had to begin the process of regaining his mental health as well.
Maya’s adoptive mother was heartbroken to learn that she had been paralyzed as a result of her ordeal, and she was determined to replace the past for a future filled with love and good memories for Maya.
Maya started her recuperation, and one of her new hurdles was learning to use her wheelchair. He’s been free to roam anywhere he wants since he learned to use it, and he now enjoys walking and running like any other dog.
Maya’s mother had this to say:
“Maya had been receiving treatment for a year and a half. And she’s always become stronger with each passing day! And he figured out how to come out of the nightmare he had been in in the past. It dawned on them that their future would be penned together! ».
Maya is now where she is after a few years and her enormous desire to live and finally be able to enjoy the positive in people and life.
“People usually think I saved Maya, but I always respond, ‘no, she was the one who saved me.’ Maya’s narrative of triumph, compassion, and love, which we still live today, altered my life and the lives of countless others. There are no scars too deep for love to heal! ».
