For two weeks, would be rescuers tried everything to capture Zena, but the terribly neglected dog no longer trusted any humans, and with all her natural instincts and wit, eluded even the kindest gestures of food offerings. That is – until one day when the dog was too weak, too hungry and too sick to resist anyone’s efforts. In the city of Burleson, Texas – on a quiet street – Zena fell off of her legs and just curled herself into a ball; waiting for death to finally relieve her of her suffering.
And then on Wednesday night as the temperatures dipped below freezing, the abandoned pup, who once had a home but no longer remembered, didn’t move.
“She laid there for whomever wanted her could take her. She just gave up. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC has picked her up,” Stacy Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC updated animal advocates following the dog’s heartbreaking story on Facebook.
Zena has been rushed to the organization’s partner veterinary hospital where she is now receiving life saving medical care.
