Three of the six emaciated and starving puppies found in an isolated area crying in a cardboard box  with the words “Shoot Me” printed on the outside, have been listed in critical condition. According to the Underdog Project, the rescue organization that stepped forward to help, the puppies were rushed to emergency veterinary care on Tuesday morning.underdog-puppy-2

When found, the pups suffered from severe diarrhea with bloody stools. They had all been vomiting and suffering from internal parasites consisting of hook and tapeworms.  All were being treated for coccidiosis, but the damage to their intestinal lining may have been worse than originally anticipated. The little ones are losing fluids and have not been able to either gain or maintain their weight. Tragically, their condition continues to deteriorate; the veterinarian staff are infusing them with fluids and hoping for the best. All are considered extremely critical at this time.underdog-puppy-3

The six puppies were discovered on December 30 when a hunter and his wife stumbled upon an old cardboard box with the words, “Shoot Me” sprawled across the outside. The woman’s husband wanted to shoot, but as he cocked his gun, ready to brutally end the lives of each and every puppy, because the words “Shoot Me” on the box perhaps signaled a bizarre message to him, the man’s wife was able to keep the puppies safe until rescuers arrived. No one knows who left the puppies in the woods – there is no question the heinous, heartbreaking animal cruelty act would have left all of them to die slow, excruciating deaths. Volunteers, however continue to fight for these little ones and pray for their recovery.
