Just one week ago, the photo of Queenie – another victim of heartless neglect found curled up behind a small shed in the Houston, Texas area went viral as the phrase  “a picture is worth a thousand words” so perfectly described the dog’s heartbreaking plight. She suffered in silence until a  group of animal advocates coordinated her rescue with Rescue Dogs Rock NYC.

On Friday, the young dog underwent four hours of surgery to remove and debride the dead and infected skin over her body. The infection ran so deep, the surgeon could see the tendons on her legs. She has been bandaged to protect her raw skin and will have her dressings changed daily. Blood levels are in the normal range, and Queenie remains comfortable being administered appropriate doses of pain medications. Further infections are her biggest obstacle at this time; she remains on antibiotics to stave off future infections.

And now on Sunday morning, Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, updated the dog’s condition on the organization’s Facebook page with some encouraging words:

“Queenie Eats
She loves to eat !
She is having a good morning and doing slightly better today
She still is very critical but her medical team is quite pleased with her progress
Slow and steady

Please continue to pray for Queenie , it’s helping!”

    Get well Queenie – and once again Rescue Dogs Rock NYC comes through – whoever neglected and threw her away like trash – may you end up living and dying slowly under a filthy bridge and no one cares.

    Too bad the “Vile Viscous “formation ” that was the Human that knew how brutal that poor dog was being treated by them, doesn’t have an accident and fall into a vat of lye.. It would be absolutely NO LOSS to any ONE OR THING ON this Earth!!!

      Queenie was found here in Katy, TX as a stray- I was contacted to help find rescue for her – she has mange, untreated skin infections and was starving. We do not believe she was abused by anyone before RDRNY took her into thier rescue. We’re thrilled the hospital she is in has been amazing to her💜
