It had been the end of the line for a four- and-a-half-month-old puppy. Bebe seemed lifeless, rejected, shut down and homeless with no hope of ever finding a home. Barely beginning her life, the puppy had already suffered so much; one look at her, and it was apparent that she had been a victim of extreme neglect and abuse.

When asked to help, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC didn’t hesitate. Co-founder Stacey Silverstein stepped forward to give Bebe hope.
“Lying on the dirty, germ infested shelter floor waiting to die, Bebe knew her fate. We assume Bebe was a happy puppy at some point in her life, but things certainly turned for the worse … and now she was left abandoned and sick in a kill shelter waiting to die,” Stacey posted on the organization’s Facebook page along with the puppy’s heartbreaking photo.
“We took one look at her video, and we knew we had to help.”
Bebe suffers from dehydration, a serious skin infection, anemia and dehydration. She is currently at the organization’s San Antonio veterinarian partner receiving urgent medical care.
“Her eyes are full of puss, her ears are cracked and stiff from neglect –
Her body hairless and covered in sores
She’s shaking from being so weak
Thank goodness we rescued her when we did as she was in horrific condition
Bebe has already had IV fluids and a medicated bath to soothe her skin.”
Bebe, however was not the only innocent young victim of abuse and neglect at that shelter. Kennel mate Bobo, who is just eight months old, also has suffered. He looked up as Bebe was getting ready to leave. Look closely, and note this puppy’s eye is missing. How did that happen? And so Bobo would not be left behind.
“We plan to literally give them their life back by bringing them to a place of health peace and well being,” added Stacey.
