On Saturday morning, in a thickly populated Houston suburb, bystanders ignored the plight of an emaciated, suffering dog. Lying on the hot macadam on a boiling hot day, people just walked around him – how does anyone ignore the desperate pleas of any domestic pet in dire need?
“He is so emaciated, has lacerations everywhere, burning up in the heat and seizing with blood,” a volunteer from the rescue organization ThisIsHouston posted on social media as she gently picked the pup up and placed him in her car heading to the emergency veterinarian hospital.
No one knows what happened to the dog the rescue group has dubbed Opie. Just an hour ago, the dog arrived at Vergi 24/7.
“He was unresponsive and unable to blink with whole body shaking when Kourtney got there. She poured a bottle of cold water on a towel, placed it on him and had A/C on full blast and he was no longer shaking, became responsive to her speaking, blinking and lifting his head so super positive news.”
It is believed Opie had a heatstroke.
