VIDEO: Gladstone staffy left for dead fighting for her life
AFTER her beloved four-year-old staffy was left for dead in the middle of the road, Gladstone woman Ashlee Walmsley was faced with the decision of putting her down.
Aubree escaped her owners Boyne Island house and ran onto the road last Thursday night.
A car driving towards Tannum Sands hit Aubree, and she was completely caught underneath the car.
She was left lying on the road unable to move herself. Luckily, she was found shortly after and taken to the vet.
Ms Walmsley, who is currently in New Zealand with her partner Josh and child, Arlie, said she was "distraught" at not being able to help Aubree.
But a friend of Ashlee's has been looking after the pup, and has been sending video and photos updates of Aubree's recovery.
With a shattered pelvis and fractures throughout her hips and legs, Aubree is pushing on and looking like she will make a slow recovery.
"We will do whatever it takes, it's not her time to go" Ashlee said.
