A lifetime of extreme neglect has left a Houston, Texas, dog’s spirit broken. The five-year-old dog, dubbed Madelyn, was picked up as a stray and she is now in the care of This Is Houston. The animal welfare agency writes:
Her spirit is broken. Her fur is gone. Her entire body hurts. Her mind is wondering what she did wrong. Her heart is torn. This is what happens when a living animal is ignored for so long.
This baby knew nothing but pain and misery for her entire life. She’s 5 years old and has been completely failed by humans. Can you imagine how many people saw her over those 5 years and ignored her? Our hearts break thinking about how her life has been up until this point.
It doesn’t take a veterinary exam to expose Madelyn’s pitiful state of health. She has no fur, her feet are swollen, her nails overgrown – but an exam also reveals the extent of damage inside.
Her heart is enlarged, and we aren’t quite sure why. We know she is heartworm positive but we don’t know much else.
Madelyn will likely require the expertise of a specialist to help her recover. You can follow her journey at this link to This Is Houston on Facebook.
Donations can be made here.
