Lukey lived a life of torture and abuse; his suffering is all too evident in his malnourished and weakened appearance. And then he was brought into a rural Texas shelter this week, where many dogs have no chance of ever seeing the light of a new day. Most are euthanized and few are adopted; there’s little funding and barely any staff to keep up with the intake numbers; those sentient beings who have been dumped or abandoned by their irresponsible owners.
Lukey, however will not be a statistic. Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC had been asked to help, and if at all possible she rarely refuses. A dog, who has lived a life of pain and fear and has been so abused and neglected, now has a chance. He has been transferred to the rescue’s partner veterinarian hospital in Dallas where he is receiving emergency care; his condition is listed as critical.
On Facebook, Jackie updated the dog’s condition:
“Lukey has been abused and neglected for so long; he has spiraled into what you see here in these photos and video. He has lived a life of pain and fear. Even though he is suffering, can’t see due to his infected eyes, malnourished and weak, he remains sweet gentle and affectionate and trusting of all humans and other dogs; an incredible testament to Lukeys pureness and goodness.”
