Just 6-months-old, and this is a puppy who is nothing more than blood and scabs. He is malnourished and bleeding from every corner of his body. Is it no surprise that this puppy appears to have given up on life? His tiny body has nearly been destroyed from neglect and abuse.
Dez’ tragic story began months ago, but no one except his negligent owner even knew the puppy existed. When found in Dallas this week roaming the streets, animal control brought him to the shelter. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped up to help after a plea went out for a puppy who deserved better.
“Dez can’t even find comfort in his sleep,” co-founder of the rescue organization, Stacey Silverstein posted on the group’s Facebook page. “Every inch of him pains him. He is very weak and can barely walk. Someone dumped him so carelessly.”
Dez was rushed to the organization’s partner veterinarian where the puppy is fighting for his life. Everything is being done to ease his pain and increase his chances for survival. He remains in critical condition:
“We just received an update from the Emergency Hospital and DEZ is very weak. His glucose level is very low; he’s extremely dehydrated and anemic. He will need a blood transfusion and IV 24/7. He will remain at the ER Hosp indefinitely as he fights for his life,” Stacey added early Wednesday afternoon.
If he survives, he will need a foster home to help him trust again and heal.
