Shattered hearts: ‘Faith’ the Great Dane succumbed to her injuries

An ailing Great Dane, whose every inch of her body hurt, rescued from the animal shelter in Fort Walton, Florida has shattered hearts. On Monday morning, Faith succumbed to her injuries. Although she was receiving the best of care, her tired body couldn’t fight any longer.

The shelter contacted Northwest Florida Great Dane Rescue  on Saturday for help. Staff and volunteers at the shelter were worried the dog would not survive unless she received immediate emergency care.

Faith had been rushed to the organization’s partner veterinarian where she was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection – possibly pneumonia. Her internal body temperature had been extremely low when she arrived at the veterinary hospital. Skin scrapings show she had one of the worst cases of demodex mange the vet hasd ever seen. Faith was septic; her white blood count had gone through the roof, and her blood platelets were very low.

Tragically, Faith was a victim of abuse and neglect. Be the voice for those who cannot speak. Faith never deserved her heartbreaking fate.

Rest in peace beautiful pup.

    Precious treasure Faith, I am heartbroken that you were failed by your humans, who should have protected you…… I know you are in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty and join his wonderful snuggle buddies group and RIP amongst loving friends.

    The POS who neglected and abandoned this precious treasure has a reserved spot in Hell waiting for him. He will burn forever for his cruelty.
