When this puppy was tossed away like trash, thankfully someone discovered him and was able to call for help before it was too late.
When Paw Squadron got a call about some puppies being thrown away, they quickly rushed out to help. But they didn’t know exactly which dumpster the puppies were dumped in, so they had to drive around and search.
Finally, they heard some cries and discovered one puppy in a concrete pit. There were no other surviving puppies and the little one that was there was desperate for help. There was no way out of the pit and no water to drink on a hot day.
Thankfully, they were able to save this one and get him away from the suffering that was forced on him by the hands that were supposed to love and protect him. It’s impossible to imagine how a person could do this to an innocent puppy.
Once in the arms of his rescuer, the scared puppy was given water and food. Once the little guy ate, he fell asleep as they drove to his new home. Once there, he got a bath and some of his sparkle back.
Soon it was time to meet a friend. This sweet dog couldn’t replace his missing siblings but was a great comfort to the little puppy. With all the newness, it was once again nap time for the little guy.
But sadly, it soon became clear that all wasn’t well for the tiny puppy. He was sick and couldn’t hold down his food. Once at the vet, they learned he had a fever and now they had the dreaded wait to find out what was wrong.
When the news came, it was the worst. He had parvo and coronaviruses and would need to stay in the ICU. Even with the best care, his prognosis was grim. The other puppies more than likely didn’t survive because they were all sick.
Rescue is hard because, despite their best efforts, not all dogs survive. If this little puppy does survive, we’ll have to wait and see. Although his odds were not good, the rescue wasn’t going to give up on him and were praying for the best.
Despite the sadness, it’s important to share these stories to remind people how important vaccinations and vet care is. A lot of pain and suffering can be prevented with a little prevention. Please share this story with your friends.
