A good-natured puppy, dubbed Remy had no idea how sick he was, yet the friendly and affectionate pooch snuggled up to every human crossing his path. Found roaming the New York City streets by Animal Control, the emaciated 6-month-old puppy was brought to the city shelter. No one knows how long he had been scrounging for food, but his physical condition didn’t happen overnight. And now in the very coldness of a New York City January winter, Remy, was fortunate to have been saved. Even better for this young pooch occurred when Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped up to provide him with the veterinary help – both physically and emotionally he deserves.
Diagnosed with severe mange, deep gashes and collective skin infections, the puppy with no hair was transferred from the New York City Animal Care Center to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. Remy is currently in critical condition. Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the rescue updated animal advocates on Tuesday about the puppy’s prognosis on their Facebook page:
“Remy was transported to our vet partner yesterday, and sadly he’s in very rough shape. Remy’s skin is swollen and infected with areas of deep gashes which are open and bleeding. He is emaciated and weak and completely dehydrated. He was found on the city streets as a stray so we have no information on how he was left in such horrible condition.
Our plan, as always is to give Remy everything he needs so that he can become a healthy and happy puppy once again.”
