Years of abuse and neglect made up the lives of a bonded Mastiff and his Rottweiler friend. Both had been surrendered to a Texas kill shelter, and even though other rescue organizations had been trying to rescue the two dogs, none were able. On Saturday, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped in to save Alvie and Ally.
The dogs were rushed to the organization’s south Texas veterinarian partner where they were administered immediate and urgent medical care; both were so bonded to each other, they needed to heal and stay together.
The Neopolitan Mastiff, Alvie, is not doing well; the years of abuse have taken its toll on her body after delivering multiple litters and little aftercare. Rottweiler Ally seems to be faring better. Both dogs are undergoing comprehensive testing On Monday morning, rescue co-founder, Stacey Silverstein updated their condition.
“Here they are at our South Texas Vet Partner receiving life saving medical care
As you can see, Alvie has suffered years of neglect and is in very critical medical condition
What a stunning dog and to be allowed to deteriorate to such neglect
They both are having a full medical work up, including blood work , diagnostic testing , X-rays
Ally seems to be in much better physical shape, but it’s to soon to know for sure
We are so glad they have each other as they are clearly BONDED and they will REMAIN TOGETHER.”
More updates to come. Their medical care will be extremely expensive. Donations help to save lives.
