If you ever thought you heard “it all” relating to disturbing situations of animal cruelty and neglect, regrettably there’s always more. In South Texas, a volunteer reported discovering a skeletal mother Boxer dumped on the side of her road with her eight-day-old puppies on Monday morning. The mother dog had been desperately trying to save and protect her puppies, but with no food or water, her chances and the survival of her family were growing slim.

Although skeletal and deprived of all nourishment, “Momma Rosie” still tried to nurse her puppies. Only four of the newborns had survived; others desperately crawled out into the unrelenting heat of the barren field and perished. No one knows how long they had been out in the field – completely alone and nearly defenseless; the puppies infested with fleas and ticks. Thankfully, a rescue advocate spotted the abandoned family; Rescue Dogs Rock NYC once again were notified and have come to the 911 emergency rescue  volunteering their help. 

“Thankfully they were spotted in this deserted field and the process began to try and save them and get them to safety and to a Vet Hospital for life saving medical treatment,” Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC posted on the organization’s Facebook page. “We stepped in today and have taken responsibility for this family. This is a huge undertaking and an expensive one. This family deserves everything we can give them; medical treatment and new lives.”

As of Monday afternoon, Momma Rosie and her four surviving puppies arrived at the emergency veterinarian. One of the puppies has been listed in critical condition; the prognosis for the entire family is still unknown. Once the dogs are released from the hospital, a foster family in the area of Dallas is needed. Contact Rescue Dogs Rock NYC here for an application. If you’re wondering what Momma Rosie’s disposition might be, Stacey did mention:

“And she’s sweet and loving even after living a horrible life , alone and abandoned…”

There’s a reason we call them “man’s best friend.” Who else could be so forgiving. To help this family, donations can be made to Go to rescuedogsrocknyc.org or via PayPal at Donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org.

    Such horrific cruelty! All I can say is THANK YOU GOD!! A little part of my heart and soul dies with every case of animal cruelty I hear of! How I wish I could change the despicable abuse of dogs and cats! IF ONLY! GET WELL SOON MAMA ROSIE AND BABIES

    So sad. How can anyone just dump a mama dog and her pups to fend for themselves? It’s heartbreaking. Thank you for saving mama Rosie and her pups. The babies that passed, you’re free now.

    And once again, the state of Texas proves its inhabitants are some of the cruelest in the nation. And of course, if it weren’t for Rescue Dogs Rock, NYC Rosie and her puppies would all have been euthanized – I hope they all survive and get the safe loving homes they sure did not have in the state of Texas. Whoever did this will never be caught and probably not even looked for and they can continue to abuse animals since Texas seems to OK this treatment.

    This just brings tears to my eyes. I can not comprehend how anyone can be so cruel. I pray for Rosie and her babies for a full recovery and to find love like they deserve.

    How could any human with a heart and conscience do such a horrific thing?! They don’t have either one. Cold heartless ignorant scum. These maggots usually breed so another fresh batch of heartless scum is coming right along behind them. And the innocent suffer. Others pay for the damage, to try and save these poor suffering mistreated animals. They need to be found and prosecuted to the max!!! After someone beats them to a bloody pulp.
