The four-month-old puppy drowned in glue and dragged through the mud and left to languish in misery along an industrial estate in Istanbul is beginning to recover. According to Nur Rima Yola, the founder of He’Art of Rescue who saved the puppy, dubbed Pascal, the little guy continues to be treated with antibiotics and painkillers.
As reported originally by the Pet Rescue Report, Pascal – barely alive, stood as stiff as a statue, in a cartoon box he was brought to the shelter. What happened to him defied all logic and compassion. Children had drowned the dog in glue just for fun. In what a group of heartless kids thought was a game and highly amusing, they drenched Pascal in glue and then dragged him through the mud. And to seal the defenseless puppy’s fate, they ran away leaving Pascal to try and rub the hardening glue away.
Pascal was brought to a shelter and He’Art of Rescue stepped in to help. Nur described her first reaction when she saw the puppy:
“A statue made of mud and glue, a statue submissive to everything that happens around him. A statue in desperate fear of what is to come next. The remnants of once a puppy, barely alive stands as we listen to his story in shock…,” Nur posted on their Facebook page describing the emotional and heartbreaking story of the pup’s short life.
And as everyone has been patiently waiting, Sunday brought Pascal’s update; the puppy drowned in glue and rescued just five days prior:
“After the glue has been removed, he stood in shock for one day. He was even turning his back to hide when he sees people. Since yesterday he is doing better, slowly getting used to the staff in the clinic, of course love is being poured to him. He especially bonded with one of the doctors who is in charge of him, Hasan Akin. They are best buddies. We know his soul will mend in time and the adoptive family will play a major role in this. Our medical team is doing everything for him.”
In addition Nur made Pascal’s 30,000 followers smile with more words of hope:
“Baby Pascal is recovering very fast; he has a big appetite and eats three times a day but he also developed an allergic reaction due to all the chemicals his skin absorbed. Our doctors are attending it and drawing a very delicate treatment plan for his fragile puppy metabolism.
Meanwhile Pascal’s broken spirit is being attended too; cuddling time , spoiling , TLC … We will continue doing whatever is required to mend everything that fell apart in him.”
