Xena the Chihuahua also had to have her leg amputated due to injuries from the accident. She gave birth at the same time.
Xena has lived up to her warrior woman name.
The Chihuahua ended up at Fuzz Ball Animal Rescue in Hermiston, Oregon, after getting hit by a car while in labor.
They took the dog to the Oregon Trail Veterinary Clinic to have her leg amputated due to injuries from the accident.
Xena also had to have an emergency C-section because her baby was too large for a natural birth.
What happened after the birth?
On Wednesday, the rescue shared the happy ending to this harrowing tale. The Chihuahua mom survived her operations, as did her healthy baby boy.
“It is so wonderful to see that both are doing amazing! This is one heck of a miracle. This mama is a warrior, and so is her baby,” the rescue posted on Facebook. “To have survived being on the streets, run over, in labor with a puppy that was too big to come out, and then a c-section and leg amputation while in shock! They are little miracles!”
According to WSET, they later gave the duo the heroic names Xena and Marvel.
