No 8-month-old shepherd should look like this. The Trio Animal Foundation in Chicago was asked by the Garrido Stray and Rescue Foundation to take on Brady and the shepherd puppy’s medical care.
Animal advocates agree just looking at this German shepherd puppy makes our hearts hurt. Fortunately, his new life began on Monday as the 8-month-old shepherd’s story began to unravel.
“This poor 8 month puppy has not only been abused by his previous owner but left in a cage at a vet for weeks until someone would pay the $179 bill. I can promise you that we will be looking into it.
Brady is this puppy’s new name, as his former name was disgusting. It truly showed the character of his previous owner,” posted the Trio Animal Foundation on their social media page.
Brady is 20-pounds underweight. At this time, the emphasis is on nutrition and his severe skin condition. He is being administered two weeks of oral medications as well as medicated baths to make him more comfortable. Since he apparently lacks socialization skills, the staff will be working on Brady’s trust issues.
“I know that we have a lot of German Shepherd supporters out there, and I am sure that you have never seen a case like Brady’s. It is so sad to say that we are so used to seeing cases like this in pitbulls but are truly blown away when we see it in another breed… so unfair on so many levels.”
In addition to the multiple skin issues, Brady’s eyes continue to bother him. Parts of his skin feel like sandpaper while other parts of his skin tissue is paper thin and bleed when he scratches – a puppy just looking for some relief.
“The only time Brady looks like he finds any relief is when he is rubbing his face on you or burying his head in your arms. To think that he has been in such bad shape for so many months is incomprehensible… he is a frickin’ puppy!”
