In the area of Bear, Delaware, a tiny dog was tossed out into the woods to fend for himself. In an inexcusable and heartless act of animal cruelty, relatives of the Chihuahua’s deceased owner, reportedly threw little Sebastian away when they let the tiny dog loose in the woods; in a selfish act as if he was no more important than the worn out belongings and old tax records of someone who recently died.
Finally captured and in partnership with the Cecil County Animal Services, Renee’s Rescues, Inc. couldn’t say no when asked if they would help. When caught after months of hiding and eluding strangers, the six-year-old Chihuahua remains extremely friendly and just wants to be loved despite his condition and the abandonment he must have felt. On the rescue’s Facebook page, Sebastian’s story began to unravel:
“…He was finally caught. Look at his nails! Despite this, he is very friendly with shelter staff and just wants love. He is currently at the shelter and heartworm positive. We couldn’t say no. I’m seeking a foster ‘PAWrent’ near Bear, Delaware willing to give Sebastian a safe haven.”
The rescue organization will supply food, a crate, toys, treat and veterinarian care for the dog; the foster must supply love. A two-month commitment to take care of the dog is preferred – that is until he is feeling better and can be placed for adoption. If interested, please apply here.
No information has been made available whether charges of animal cruelty will be pursued against the family. At this time, the emphasis is on helping Sebastian. Get well soon little guy.
