Dog thrown out in garbage bag pokes his head out as if to say ‘help me’

Spread the love

Claudio wore a tattered collar which meant he once belonged to someone, but on Sunday, he had been thrown out in a garbage bag on the side of an abandoned road near McAllen, Texas. A Good Samaritan spotted the dog while driving; she stopped to help but was scared to touch him as she thought he might have already died.

“Hi. I live on Alvarez rd and there’s a puppy or old dog that was left thrown. I really don’t know what to do with it,” the woman’s Facebook post stated.

When that same Good Samaritan reached out to someone, a rescuer returned to the area where Claudio remained for hours – curled up and silently suffering. The woman picked him up and gently placed the dog in her car. Although he was severely injured and in critical condition, Claudio didn’t complain; he only wanted to live.

And when offered food, he ate.

“Every bone on his body is visible, no hair and covered in gashes and open wounds,” co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC wrote on the organization’s Facebook page Sunday evening as Claudio was en route to the emergency veterinarian hospital.

“Still trying to wag his tail, how sad not to have lost all faith in human beings who caused this horrific act.”

Claudio is now safe and reported to  be receiving blood transfusions. As of Sunday night, the dog’s medical bill had exceeded $2,000. Help is needed.
