Pup confined and starved after being born

Pup born, only to be ‘confined, starved and forgotten’

A pit bull pup dubbed Bubs, was born…only to be “confined, starved and forgotten.” At a year of age, the neglected dog weighed in at just 9 lbs. and was so weak that he was unable to lift his head. On January 10, the BARCS Animal Shelter in Baltimore, Maryland, introduced Bubs to Facebook followers, and shared his sad story.

The animal shelter wrote:

“(he) is terribly emaciated and came in covered in his own urine. Bubs was brought to BARCS after he was rescued by a good Samaritan who knew he was being neglected in his former home.”

Bubs condition upon arrival at the shelter was so dire that he had to be taken to an emergency veterinarian – he was weak, unable to raise his head or stand, and his body temperature was so low that it did not register on a thermometer. After he was provided with round-the-clock care, he was transferred back to the animal shelter and taken in as a foster pup by one of the staff members.

The shelter believes that Bubs is an American bulldog mix, but he has stunted growth from being starved. The shelter noted that Bubs’ front legs are abnormal and he shows signs of being confined into a small space which did not allow for him to stand.

On January 11, the animal shelter updated Facebook followers about the young dog, who is reveling in the good life at his foster home:

Here he is snuggled up next to his two favorite things, his warm foster brother Beans, and a heated blanket. His eyes are lifted and free of worry—it seems that Bubs is finally learning what it means to be a loved dog.

The shelter added:

Last night, Bubs’ body temperature finally reached a level that it is safe to give him a much-needed bath. He is, however, still emaciated and on a strict and frequent feeding schedule. With dogs that are this thin and dehydrated, it’s important to reintroduce food slowly, because Bubs’ body has to re-learn how to eat and accept food. Once Bubs is more stable, we will be sending him to an orthopedic specialist to see what the best course of action is for his legs.

Bubs will be on his journey to health for quite some time. Individuals interested in contributing to his veterinary expenses can make a donation here (please type Dubs to designate the funds for him).

    This good Samaritan who did rescue Bubs needs to go one step further and divulge the name of the maggot puke that treat this poor dog so badly – they need to be sitting in jail OR hung from the nearest tree (preferable).
