Dog lovers have been anxiously waiting for positive news about Republic, the ailing young dog who was recently dumped on a road in Texas. On Wednesday morning, Chip N Snip posted a heartwarming video showing the pup up and walking – incredible progress given that Republic was on the brink of death when she was initially rescued.
On Tuesday, the rescue group provided a positive update indicating hope for the struggling pup:
Republic had her first food today! It wasn’t a steak dinner but she did manage to eat some baby food and keep it down. She is going outside now and loves rolling in the grass. Keep those prayers coming. We are moving the right direction.
What is known about Republic’s health
On May 21, the rescue group answered some questions about Republic for people who have been inquiring about testing and other health-related concerns:
No- she wasn’t fed drugs, yes we’ve checked.
She is underweight, so she is trying to gain.
She is still having leaky stool, so we are hoping that clears soon.
Vergi 24/7 has done every test imaginable, they are the best around and are doing everything needed for her.
Ailing Pup’s backstory
Last week, a woman was caught on video dumping Republic on a road in Texas. After being confronted by two people who were taking a video, the woman picked up the puppy and placed her in the back of a pick-up truck…all the while, the puppy who had been abandoned remains motionless in the bed of the truck. Though the woman in the video claimed that she would take the puppy to an animal control agency, the pup was later discovered abandoned once again. Read more here.
Chip N Snip is collecting funds for this puppy’s ongoing care via PayPal.
According to Chip N Snip, all information about Republic, and what happened to her before she was picked up and taken to safety, has been turned over to law enforcement.
