In Houston, Texas, an unrecognizable Rottweiler was found on Sunday roaming along a Baytown road. No one knows how long he had been scavenging in the area searching for scraps of food, but his body was ravaged with infections including a sac of fluid hanging from a deep gash in his neck.
According to Chip N Snip, an animal rescue organization, Brittany Everett drove out to rescue the dog, now dubbed Theodore. She was shocked when she first noted the deep gashes from a too tight collar causing the fluid collection under his neck.
“Meet Theodore. He is mangy, large tumors on his neck. He has an embedded collar that is oozing green infection. He smells of necrotic tissue but he wagged his little nub of a tail and came straight to us. He gently took treats and walked nicely to the car. He loaded up with no trouble and rode quietly to the hospital.
Maybe he knows we are the good guys, here to help. To change his life forever. Maybe he has just given up and is defeated,” the organization posted on their Facebook page.
Rushed to the Wilcox Veterinary Clinic, his condition was critical when he arrived, however Theodore continues to make amazing progress and is expected to make a full recovery.
Check out his video when he was rescued:
Theodore loves squeaky toys and balls! If you’d like to send him some please do!
