A senior three-pound Chihuahua was discarded like trash on Tuesday evening in front of an apartment complex in Dallas, Texas. And there she sat all by herself – just skin wrapped over her bones and nearly frightened to death. She tried as hard as she could to get up, but was unable to walk and just hobbled around in small circles.
And if that hasn’t been heartbreaking enough, this tiny dog appears to have been neglected for a long time and the demodex mange has her scratching and scratching – her coat barely covering her raw skin.
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC reached out to help. Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the organization posted more details about Oreo later Tuesday night.
“Does it get any worse than this? Cruelty to the MAX… Discard your special needs, crippled old dog in a park like you would a piece of trash!”
Well……… We WONT STAND BY AND ALLOW THIS …. We have named this angel Oreo and she has been picked up and is SAFE WITH US !!!!
Oreo clearly has been neglected for quite some time and needs immediate medical intervention to save her life. She can hardly walk, is hunched over, has no teeth and her eye is bulging out.”
Who can even imagine someone tossing this three-pound dog out by herself? Check out her video:

Oreo spent the night with a foster parent; she was so tired, but felt so safe, she fell fast asleep. She is on her way to the Rescue Dogs Rock NYC supporting veterinarian. Her medical care is expected to be expensive, but isn’t Oreo worth every effort to save and finally enjoy the love she deserves?
