Rescue Dogs Rock NYC named the eight-week-old puppy Ingrid on Wednesday morning. According to the organization’s co-founder, Jackie O’Sullivan, their South Carolina shelter partners asked for help. The friendly little pooch, barely weaned from her mother, had been brought into the shelter by animal control officers who winced, just knowing the pain the puppy had to have been suffering. She was rushed to an emergency veterinarian.

When Ingrid arrived at the hospital, veterinarians stated it is the worst prolapsed rectum they have ever seen; surgery for the puppy has been scheduled.

“The tissue on the tissues hanging out is partly necrotic and surgery is needed right now even though it comes with risk,” Jackie told advocates and rescue followers on Facebook after posting the heartbreaking photos of the tiny pup. “…another puppy suffering that did not get immediate medical care and was left for days like this where her tissue started to die off.” 

Unfortunately there is no way to know what or why this happened. Could the damage have been caused by an overload of internal parasites that caused Ingrid to strain or was it something else? The puppy’s prognosis is unknown, however crossing fingers and toes for Ingrid’s survival  are appreciated.

    THREE GUESSES IT WON”T be Parasites!!! IT is becoming COMMON KNOWLEDGE what the NEW FAD is …. I would venture this is a South Carolina Pervert that needs to be minus a couple gonads, and his penis!!!

    I’ve seen this with older dogs – not one as young as this. My first thought for this case is that this sweet puppy may have been sexually abused by a human. While that’s not the only possible explanation, again, I’ve never heard of a case this bad in a dog this young. Praying for this sweet pup.

    I hope the idiot that put this poor baby through this gets found and put behind bars. He doesn’t even deserve to see the light of day ever again.

    I am praying for sweet Ingrid, for her to live and prosper and that a loving family would find her & adopt her… the same time I am praying that if this harm was done to her by some sick pervert trying to have sick perverted acts with her, that they are caught and punished to the fullest extent of the law….this baby is just a baby….God touch her body and guide the doctors hands as they operate to make her whole…in Jesus name….Amen

    Think We all Know what really happened ( ONLY KEEP OUR MOUTH”S SHUT) BECAUSE of the “touchy-feely” subject matter in this incident… That is why my first post was conveniently deleted!!! See no Evil… Speak no Evil… pretend it was simply worms… OK

        I have being a nurse for over 25 years, have read and seen where the use of animals for sexual gratification has been increasing for the last decade at an alarming rate…. makes one wonder Just what the problem is…..
