A family, who apparently grew tired of caring for their sick puppy, took him to a veterinarian to be euthanized. Fortunately, the unwanted puppy is still alive because a rescue group has taken him under its wing.

On New Year’s Eve, Dachshund Rescue of South Florida alerted its Facebook followers to the sad situation:

“We’ve seen a lot of things over the years, but never have we seen a sick puppy brought to the shelter to be euthanized WITH his medicine after his family grew tired of him, and have his “family” run out the door while the dog was being examined.”

The puppy, named Dagney is now safe and a veterinary team is attempting to find out what is ailing him. The rescue group stated:

We got a call about a “sick puppy” with a “gland problem” whose family had brought him to be euthanized and when we heard his story and saw the photos of the meds that he was surrendered with, our hearts broke and we raced to get him.

We found the little boy we have named Dagney with the right side of his face swollen, emaciated, and shaking in terror and heartbreak. We got him to Leader Animal Specialty Hospital where he is being examined with multiple tests being run to try and figure out what is wrong with him and so far tests are inconclusive…

Funds to help Dagney receive all of the veterinary care that he needs can be made at this link to the rescue agency’s fundraiser.

Dagney

<3 We've seen a lot of things over the years, but never have we seen a sick puppy brought to the shelter to be euthanized WITH his medicine after his family grew tired of him, and have his "family" run out the door while the dog was being examined…. This is what happened to Dagney and we ask your help to figure out what is wrong with him via his FundRazr at https://fundrazr.com/41JdF2?ref=ab_616GO0 or via Goodworld by commenting #donate + dollar amount below. <3Read on for more of Dagney's story….We got a call about a "sick puppy" with a "gland problem" whose family had brought him to be euthanized and when we heard his story and saw the photos of the meds that he was surrendered with, our hearts broke and we raced to get him.We found the little boy we have named Dagney with the right side of his face swollen, emaciated, and shaking in terror and heartbreak. We got him to Leader Animal Specialty Hospital where he is being examined with multiple tests being run to try and figure out what is wrong with him and so far tests are inconclusive…Our hearts break at his condition and our hearts break even more that someone could hand over a sick puppy to be euthanized, so soon before the New Year, and just turn and walk away like they were dropping off trash.We hope that Karma has got its engines running as we turn this final corner of 2017 and hope that you, our incredible community, has one last big push in you to provide Dagney the love and care he needs and to show him that there are more wonderful people in this world than the morally bankrupt ones who dumped him to die…..You are the good that shines out the bad, you are the love that overshadows the hate, the givers of hope when there was none, will you help us make one last miracle in 2017 for Dagney?

      If they are callous enough to dump their dog WITH his medication, then I say PUBLISH the owner’s name or at least give us a good look at the bottles. Call owner’s vet so he/she can give a glowing recommendation the next time they want a perfect dog.

    This is a time when maggots like this qualify for retroactive abortions. I would literally do ANYTHING to have my precious Gizmo, Kiwi, Ebbie and many others, with me again even though they had health issues and required lots of care. It’s a special time to bond with your pup in a different way even when you are doing something they don’t like. There’s an expression that says – “You have not lived until you do something for someone who cannot repay you” – John Bunyan.

      I will think deeply on these words today gizmos mom. The words from you and John Bunyan are a profound revelation.
      And instructions for us all to contribute as well as live by.
      If you would have left out the unessary words about retro abortion your post would have been banner worthy. And should be a flag we run thru the streets with.

    WHAT? Its OK to dump a dog and run out??? Not in my book it sure isn’t. These examples of maggot puke will do this again and again since they have proven they are incapable and irresponsible when it comes to animal care. Who even know if this ‘medication’ was anything useful or just some junk they picked up off a shelf. I hope this little guy pulls through and gets the safe loving home he most definitely never had.
