Outrageous: Pup abandoned next to Bailey chair and stuffed toy

Near University Park, Florida, a young dog was abandoned on Wednesday evening after her owner tied her to the Bailey chair she needs to help her survive. A note was attached explaining the dog suffers from  megaesophagus, a lifelong condition in which the esophagus doesn’t move food into the stomach. She must be fed in a Bailey chair, in which the food is pulled by gravity into the digestive system. Her heartbreaking photo suggests she knew she was no longer wanted; her stuffed toy was perched on top of the chair.

According to PetMD, megaesophagus is a generalized enlargement of the esophagus — a muscular tube connecting the throat to the stomach — with a decreased to absent motility. Esophageal motility is required for moving food and liquid down to the stomach.

Regurgitation is considered the hallmark sign of megaesophagus. Also, aspiration pneumonia may develop due to the entrance of food or liquid into the lungs. Other common symptoms include:

At this time, the dog is staying with a “regular” from the park. It is feared if the dog is taken to the local shelter, she will not survive. If anyone in the Orlando, Florida area is able to foster and help, please contact Cris Ferreira Reed via Facebook.

    What an angel to keep this dog safe and not turn her into the shelter! I hope that she finds a home soon, this disease takes some getting used to but it’s just a routine that you get into. Take the time and this pup will more than repay you with love and kisses!

    How could anyone abandon this beautiful baby? They went as far as purchasing the Bailey Chair, what in the world would cause them to give up now. Poor baby. Wish I lived in Orlando, I would foster this dog in a heartbeat.

      Nancy Raymond….I too am REALLY upset by this person(s) action , but , and this stretching the ‘compassion’ quota here…..they did the best of what they could…this is a challenging situation , especially when people just think they are gettin’ a dog/companion/playbuddy……ME,MG are manageable but some don’t have the financial or emotional wherewithal….. I’m glad this pup comes with “equipment”…. Maybe they started the regime but found it too difficult at this time in their life…..I guess this is where ” stuffed” animals come into play….they will think about this abandonment for a looooong time , I’m sure!….

      Agreed Nancy too many POS subhumans out there. What a cold blooded scumbag with no damn heart leaving a sick dog and any animal.. I wish their parents dumped their ass when they were an infant. I just want to strangle these bastards.

    It sounds like someone got tired of dealing with a dog that needed special attention and decided this was the way to get rid of her. I am willing to bet someone knows whose dog this is and they should at least be cited for abandonment! I hope she finds someone willing to help her, I agree if she were taken to the shelter, she would never survive.

    These scums couldn’t take this dog to a vet or find are rescue that would have taken her instead of abandoning this dog? If you can no longer pay to take care of her, be honest and let those no kill shelters know your situation. Who from the park is taking care of her and for how long? Doesn’t give that information in this article.

    This is disgusting to me! You made a promise when you got this baby! Typical human behavior you threw him away because you didn’t want to be bothered anymore!

    I assume the “regular” person from the park is homeless? Thank you for taking care of this pup. Hoping she finds a loving home soon.

    There has to be a record somewhere of this pet with this special need and chair. FIND THE MONSTERS who abandoned her and lock them up or fine them heavily AND NEVER ALLOW them another pet. They do not deserve to have any other animal.

    How can anyone do this? Shame on such a heartless individual that could do this to a dog that relied so much on them.

    I have a Mega E Boy . How can someone do this when the bond with these special dogs is unlike anything you can ever experience.. This breaks my heart </3 If I didn't have 5 dogs I would take this baby in a heartbeat because I recently moved back to Florida. I pray since this was posted in our Mega E support group on FB , that someone can open their heart and home to care for this special pup.. Mega E is manageable.

    This poor baby. I know first hand that ME can be a struggle but it can be managed. Because of the extra time I spent with our sweet ME boy I became closer to him than I probably would have been had he just been a normal dog.
    The only good thing I can say is at least the ‘owner’ didn’t have this beauty PTS. Hopefully someone is willing to keep this little girl safe and well care for.
