In Metairie, Louisiana, a small dog doused in chemicals in Saint Rose and left for dead, was discovered hiding in a garden by a local resident. The woman called the Metairie Humane Society for help.
According to the organization’s Facebook page, the little pup named “Baby Boy” continues to fight for his life although he is showing definite improvement in his condition:
“This sweet baby was found in my Brother in law’s garden almost lifeless, He was saved by the wonderful volunteers at Metairie Humane Shelter where he is being treated for chemical burns to most of his body and has a long road to recovery.”
Jamie Hirstius, who works at the shelter, responded to the call and found Baby Boy curled up in the garden just as if he had given up on life. WdsuNews reports the dog’s body had been severely burned by the chemicals, and he is currently receiving hydrotherapy, medicated baths and pain control.
It is not known who is responsible for this heinous deed. The dog wore no identification and was not microchipped. Anyone who recognizes this little guy is asked to contact the shelter at 504.451.2822. Arch Animal Hospital is caring for Baby Boy. Donations for his recovery can be made by calling 504.834.0906.
A video can be seen here. Fortunately, Baby Boy is responding and just days ago, he started to walk again. Get well soon little one. Everyone is cheering for your recovery.
