A blind and homeless 12-year-old pit bull waited his whole life to be rescued, although he didn’t know it at the time. Somehow the pitbull and boxer mix was able to wander into a junkyard in the Los Angeles area and crawled underneath a dumpster where he was just so tired from years of neglect, he just couldn’t move anymore. Maybe he thought he would lie in that one spot until he died?
When an employee of the junkyard noticed him, she brought him food and water; it wasn’t hard to figure out the dog was blind, dehydrated, suffering from open skin lesions and in need of immediate medical care. Although the owner of the business wanted to call a public shelter, the woman convinced him to contact Hope for Paws.
Dubbed Duncan by his rescuers, the dog put up no fight as he was leashed and gently pulled out from beneath the dumpster. And willingly, Duncan allowed himself to be picked up, placed in the car and there – he placed his tired head on his rescuer’s lap until they arrived at the veterinarian hospital. Besides being completely blind, Duncan suffered from dementia, periodontal disease, corneal ulcers, two mass cell tumors and a skin infection. Duncan’s new life began – he had waited his whole life to be rescued.
Frosted Faces Foundation has since stepped up to help; the senior has adjusted to his new life and enjoys the kindness, hugs and even the laundry basket made to snuggle.
