Chained dog collapsed and his owner dragged him out to the street to die

When a chained dog in St. Louis, who had been living his life in someone’s backyard became ill, no one seemed to  care. The dog was shutting down, and when he collapsed his owners placed him on a blanket and dragged him out to the street like trash.

Stray Rescue of St. Louis received the call about a dog dying on the side of the road. Volunteers rushed to the dog’s rescue, and within ten minutes the staff had loaded the old pup into their jeep and rushed him to the organization’s trauma center.

“Turns out, this old, decrepit dog is only about 5 years old. He was so dehydrated that his eyelids were stuck to his eyes and he couldn’t blink. His gums were bleeding because his mouth was so dry, he couldn’t swallow. And he has urine burns on his legs and back end. We gave him fluids, food, water, and love. Within minutes he was standing up and thanking us for caring about his life…,” the organization posted on their Facebook page.

Meet Archilles.  He continues to receive the care and love he deserves. When he recovers he will be ready for adoption; Archilles will never suffer again.

Stray Rescue of St. Louis needs the public’s support to continue their work.

“From the bottom of our hearts, we could never thank you enough for always stepping up and standing right by our side as we continue to be the voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. We are asking for your help once again during these most trying and uncertain times for us all. Please stay safe and keep all the animals in your hearts. They need us all now more than ever.​

    If you ARE an animal OR an African American, you can go to a handful of states that WILL make CERTAIN you DIE from egregious torture, cruelty OR a knee in your back to FORCE out all air from YOUR LUNGS. MISSOURI IS ONE OF THEM! I pray the wrath of our beloved Creator and ALL the powers in the Universe that be, find Missouri with: CEASELESS sink holes, floods, POISON, pollution, and DISEASE! YOU are DESPICABLE Nazi pukes and DESERVE to meet your timely punishment for YOUR EVIL THUGS that YOU support. It’s called “eye for an eye” folks, deal with it.

    Moderator, how can you allow that crap comment from Diana Rowell above? That has no place on this site and shame on you for allowing it. You probably won’t post my comment though.
    Poor little pup. So glad he is now getting care.
