In Los Angeles, a desperate woman discovered a severely burned German shepherd on Monday morning, and initially had nowhere to turn. Shocked and upset by the dog’s condition, the Good Samaritan immediately took the injured dog to a nearby veterinarian who, after examining the dog, gave her no option other than to euthanize the dog she had already named Charlie. As for Charlie however, he immediately bonded with the woman – following her every step; knowing this was the human who would help him, and he desperately needed someone to ease his pain and loneliness.
Completely heartbroken and defeated, the woman left the veterinarian’s office with Charlie right by her side; perhaps an omen from somewhere in heaven suddenly appeared. In an instant, another person handed the Good Samaritan a piece of paper; on it was written the contact information for Westside German Shepherd Rescue’s. When the call came in, rescuers knew they had to step up and help.
“We can only imagine how Charlie’s skin had been burned and the pain he is feeling, but through it all, he has remained loving and faithful,” the rescue organization wrote on their Facebook page as the photos of the injured shepherd appeared.
Charlie has been transferred to the organization’s partner veterinarian where he is currently receiving the best of care. Updates will be provided as more information is made available. To help with Charlie’s medical needs, donations can be made by clicking here or by check. Please mail to WGSR 3016 S. Hill St., Los Angeles, CA 90007.
Get well soon Charlie. Everyone is hoping for the best. Photos of burned German shepherd courtesy of Westside German Shepherd Rescue.
