Just two-years-old and desperately trying to survive, an abandoned pup’s life has been full of pain and suffering. On the streets of south Texas, no one stopped when Princess was struck by a vehicle and thrown onto the side of the road. The impact left her paralyzed; Princess was doomed to die, but this little one refused to give up.

Luckily, Princess worked up the strength to crawl into a Good Samaritan’s backyard. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC intervened after hearing about the young dog’s plight.

“The Good Samaritan whose backyard Princess crawled into stated she watched as Princess had been eating away at her paws and legs,” Rescue Dogs Rock NYC co-founder Stacey Silverstein, wrote on the organization’s Facebook page under the heartbreaking photos and video of the tiny tan dog just wanting to live. “This all occurred out of desperation, abandonment, pain and most importantly survival.”

On Saturday, Princess was rushed to the San Antonio veterinary partner for Rescue Dogs Rock NYC and is now receiving around the clock care. Radiographs confirm a vertebral compression fracture leaving the dog paralyzed from the waist down. At this point she needs to heal and receive medical care until the next steps can be determined. It is expected Princess with need wheels.

    What a brave and strong willed dog. RDR of NYC will not give up on Princess and even have plans of getting wheels for her.Texans need to step up and deal with the abandonment and abuse of dogs in their state. Houston has an area where it has become “normal” to dump unwanted dogs their and the city supposedly can’t keep up with all the stray and abandoned dogs. Governor of Texas needs to deal with this because it is getting worse and not the fault of these animals but of the politicians in that state who refuse to deal with and resolve this horrible situation. There are rescues that go to these areas and take the worst of the worst and then try to come back to rescue more but it is hard when their resources are limited.

    What a brave and strong willed pup. RDR of NYC already have a plan for her to get a set of wheels for her to become mobile again. Texans need to wake up and start demanded their Governor and politicians do something about all the strays and homeless dogs who are just dumped on the streets of Houston or discarded because they are too old. They have so many of these dogs roaming the streets that rescuers can’t take all that they want so have to start with the worse cases and come back to retrieve more. Why do people do this to animals? Do they think by leaving them on the streets that someone will take them in? There needs to be mandatory spay and neutering or else a stiff fine or even jail time.There has to be a way to go after these people and even puppy mill facilities that cause so many dogs roaming the streets in our country. Princess will make someone a wonderful family member.

    Texas – of course, the self centered, ignorance and lack of humanity the citizens of this state show towards animals is enough to make any caring person puke. To drive by and see a puppy in horrific pain and just keep on going is beyond cruel and so typical of the state of Texas. And this so called ‘good Samaritan’ who watched this little dog chew off its feet and did nothing to help – OK they called for a rescue – but again, any shelter in this lousy state would have just killed this little guy and never did one thing to help relieve his pain – Now that Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped (as usual) maybe he can recover enough to be fitted for wheels and hopefully, there is someone who will come forth and adopted him. All he needs is a safe loving home which he surely never had before.
