A tiny Yorkie has been named Hollywood after the Hollywood Police Department in South Florida where she was dropped off by a woman who told the officer she had to “go to work.” According to CbsMiami, Rose Mone, from the Hollywood Police Department, doesn’t necessarily believe the woman’s story, but at the very least the silky Yorkshire terrier is getting a new start after suffering some serious medical issues now being addressed:
“Basically she just came in and said she had to go to work; said she was busy,” stated Mone. “She found it over there some where and put the dog over here on the chair and walked out and that was it. I knew he needed help right away because he was not going to make it thru the day.”
So Rose called the Glimmer of Life Pet Rescue in Davie who described the little dog as extremely sick when they first picked him up.
“I think if he would have went to animal rescue they would have put him down because he was so sick,” stated Ed Degelsmith from the rescue organization. “He couldn’t walk, he was crying. (Veterinarians) …”put a catheter in him so he could pass some urine, X-rayed him. It showed he’s loaded with kidney stones…”
Even when the dog was in pain and crying, he still wanted to be picked up and hugged. On Monday afternoon, Hollywood was reported to be undergoing surgery for his kidney stones.
“I just got off the phone with Paul from Hometown veterinarian and he advised that Hollywood is on the operating table as I write this. They are going to do the stone removal first assess him and then neuter him if he’s in good enough shape then clean his teeth…”
To help with Hollywood’s recovery, a Go Fund Me page can be found here where updates are made available as they happen. Get well soon little one. We hope you make a speedy recovery.
