Abandoned in Tennessee to scrounge around for scraps to eat, the young dog had endured the worst suffering. Not only was she emaciated, her jaw was broken, an upper respiratory infection affected her breathing and her eyes would sting and water when opened because of the severe infection.
On Monday morning, the suffering dog, now named Hope, has been welcomed to the Rescue Dogs Rock NYC family and is being transferred to the organization’s partner veterinarian hospital in Georgia.
“Hope was found in Tennessee with two other dogs,” co-founder of the rescue Jackie O’Sullivan explained. “The finder could only grab her and she was the most medically urgent as you can see. Hope is emaciated, heartworm positive, has erlichia, eye infections, an upper respiratory infection, a large worm burden and it looks like a broken jaw.
To say she is a hot mess is an understatement. She is a 9-1-1.”
Tragically, Hope is one of the worst cases of neglect and abuse seen in quite awhile, but as is often the situation, this dog is extremely sweet and loving. How much can a sweet pup like this endure?
You are safe now Hope. Updates to follow.
Her medical care will cost thousands. To donate, please click below:
