Who’s crying in the swamp? A girl, knee-deep in mud, found a puppy tied to a tree!

When you live in a cabin near the swamps, you get used to the noise of wildlife without paying attention to it…

Jessica Claiborne is used to all sorts of sounds from the nearby swamp every day. The girl lives in Zebulon, North Carolina.

Usually she ignored the peculiar noise from the side of the swamps, but not that time! As Caroline was hanging laundry in the backyard, she heard something unusual…

The girl heard someone crying! The sounds were fuzzy, but it was clearly a plea for help.

Caroline dropped everything, rushing to find whoever was crying so desperately. She made her way through the muddy swamp and thickets of reeds…

Soon the source of the noise was found. It was a little puppy, nestled on a patch of land in the middle of the swamp.

Dirty and grimy, the cub was tied to a tree with a rope. It crashed into its thin neck, hurting the little one.

Caroline went straight through the swamp, bogging down to her knee. The girl knew that no one living soul would help the baby but her! Soon she reached the puppy, and then cut the rope with a pocket knife.

Of course, the baby could not have ended up in the middle of the swamp willingly. It was the work of man…

No one knows how long Nash (as Caroline called the puppy) spent in the swamp. The rope had torn the baby’s neck bloody, and the bugs had covered its fur and ears. If the girl had not heard the puppy’s cries, he would have fallen prey to wild coyotes or bobcats, or maybe he would have died of starvation and dehydration.

Caroline came home with the puppy. When she took him in her arms, he wasn’t even moving and didn’t seem to be breathing — so happy was the baby that someone had found him…

She showed the puppy to the vets where they found out that he was about two months old. The puppy was prescribed a course of antibiotics and treatment.

It had only been a week, and the puppy was already unrecognizable! A temporary foster family was found for the little guy so that he could recover in comfortable conditions.

At first he was very shy, but now he reaches out to humans, happily wagging his tail. He likes to play with other dogs.

However, the foster family noticed that there is still a trace of his past on his face. Fear and mistrust can still be read in the puppy’s eyes…

It seems to the guardians that the baby is deaf — he does not respond to sounds. However, doctors say that there is a chance that hearing will return to the pet.

Nash is now waiting to meet his new family! Volunteers have found him good owners, and it will take some time for the long-awaited reunion to happen.

We hope this little guy will never be alone again!
