In Oakland, two abandoned puppies continue to fight for their lives after they were found in a pile of trash on Saturday evening with horrific injuries. One of the four-month-old German shepherd puppies is missing a paw, and the other pup’s face and mouth is so mangled, she is unable to eat.
According to WralNews, the person who found the puppies huddled together under the freeway mixed in the trash, immediately contacted Pali Boucher with Rocket Dog Rescue. The two female puppies appear to be from the same litter. No one knows how the one puppy lost her paw.
“It had either been chopped off or there was some sort of an accident,” Pali told the news media.
The second puppy remains at the veterinarian hospital in intensive care and has been described as emaciated and unable to close or open her mouth; the bottom of her jaw hangs and reeks of infection. It is unknown at this time if this puppy will survive.
It is not known if the puppies were victims of intentional abuse or egregious neglect.
