Dogs, just like humans, experience post-traumatic stress after a car crash. That’s why it’s quite understandable why this 11-month-old Labrador retriever mix named Daisy Mae ran away after a big truck crashed into the back of the car where he was sitting in. Instincts told the injured dog to get away as far as possible from the crashed car because of imminent danger.
Daisy’s owners, Trenton Ray and Eric Cruz, were briefly knocked unconscious after the crash, so they panicked when they found out that their dog had gone missing. They were shocked and shaken but not severely injured. Paramedics came to their rescue and provided them first aid.
But Trenton and Eric worried about their dog’s condition. They were hoping that she’s alive and that they’d find them soon because she might be severely injured. People from the Mutts and Mayhem Animal Rescue came to help them find the missing dog, and they’d never felt more relieved.
After an exhausting search, the rescue found the injured dog, Daisy, deep in a dam on the other side of the railroad tracks in a four-foot-tall brush. The volunteers did not have a clue how the dog got there. But they were thankful that he was alive, though he suffered a fractured pelvis and femur.
Daisy looked extremely frightened when found, so one of the volunteers cuddled her to assure her that everything’s okay. It seemed that the dog was in complete shock as she did not want to eat or drink and just laid there looking helpless. The rescue then brought her to an animal hospital for urgent treatment.
Trenton and Eric were delighted to learn that Daisy Mae was found and being treated for her injuries. Mutts and Mayhem Animal Rescue even stepped up to pay for Daisy’s medical expenses, so it was one less worry for them. They could not thank the volunteers enough for reuniting them with their dog—they looked forward to bringing Daisy home when she fully recovered.
