In Johnson County, Kentucky an emaciated Boxer and her two three-month-old puppies were spotted lying on the side of the road on Friday. Just a small bowl of water sat by their side; leading rescuers to believe the emaciated dogs had been intentionally dumped. Naomi Boxer

Fortunately, a good Samaritan notified The Arrow Fund, an organization providing medical treatment to Kentucky animals who are victims of extreme torture, abuse, and neglect.The dogs were rushed to emergency veterinarian care.

The mother dog, dubbed Naomi and her two puppies, Wynonna and Ashley remain in critical condition. Naomi Boxer 2All were placed in oxygen tanks and given life saving blood transfusions. Their body scores on a scale of 1 to 9 are rated at 1 – the lowest number they can be and still be alive. Naomi Boxer 3All remain on intravenous fluids until food is slowly introduced into their systems that have been deprived of all nourishment for an extended amount of time. Their updated condition includes the following:

“Day 3 – all have taken a step backwards. The pups, Ashley and Wynonna, after having transfusions upon intake were improving. Now their PCV values (packed cell volume) are dropping again. Ashley, (the dark pup) is at 12 and is currently undergoing another transfusion. Wynonna, (the red pup) and Mom Naomi both have low numbers and may need transfusions as well. They are being monitored very closely. All 3 are suffering from diarrhea. The pups are estimated to be around 3 to 4 months old. Their weight is fluctuating between 6.5 and 7.5 pounds, which is tiny. Their growth was most likely stunted due to malnutrition from gestation to birth to present, and poor mama went through pregnancy and nursing while starving herself. This is just horrid!” Naomi Boxer 5Naomi Boxer 4

And as if anyone is surprised how loving and forgiving all of the dogs are despite the intentional abuse and neglect…

“I want to say the pictures do not really capture how thin these animals are. It is just devastating. But as thin and sick as they are, they try to wag their tails and give us love. Well, now it is our turn as The Arrow Fund and supporters to show them what real love is,” Rebecca wrote to Facebook followers shortly after the dogs were settled in and being treated. “I told them of the love from all over the world for them. This will be a long road of recovery of all. Tests are still being done.”Naomi Boxer 6

    What kind of monster would do this? What do they get out of it? Pleasure? I hope that they find the person(s) responsible and really punish them, not just a slap on the wrist.

    I am sitting here crying over this story. I will repeat what DIANAROBY02 said; “What kind of monster could do this?” I really hope whoever did this is discovered and prosecuted.

    We need a person to investigate and find these sacks of dung that commit these atrocities. The coward ignorAnt lowlife inbred sobs need to be held accountable!!!! By a panel of animal lovers!!!!! Then sentenced accordingly. Eye for an eye!!!!! Shit might slow down if they realize someone is coming to make them pay for their crimes. The animals have no voice in the legal system. Its time to endcanimal cruelty. Prison sentences should be given. In cases like Puppy Doe, I feel the death penalty should apply!!!!! Sick coward perverted insecure ignorant too stupid to know how ignorant they are pieces of shit!!!!
