911 Christmas miracle needed for emaciated senior pup

Animal neglect and cruelty have no days off. On Christmas Eve, an Atlanta animal shelter contacted Rescue Dogs Rock NYC asking for help. The senior German shepherd was found emaciated and unable to stand or walk.

Dubbed Rupert, the dog’s heartbreaking video reveals he has been in this condition for awhile as his back end is scaled with urine. He can feel and move his back legs, but he is just too weak to stand or support his own weight. How could anyone just watch this sweet dog grow weaker and weaker every day and never stop to help?


We have heartbreaking news that the ER vet said the Rupert was too far gone & suffering & they recommended letting him go. They said he was very unhappy & had been suffering for a long time. So we let Rupert go late today to finally find peace & be pain free 💔😥🙏🏼No more suffering sweet boy.
