Just days ago, a five-year-old Boxer arrived at the Adopt A Boxer Rescue; rescued from an Amish puppy mill. When he arrived, everyone fell in love with Clyde – the quiet, unassuming and sweet dog. He enjoyed his soft blankets, those gentle and affectionate touches from his caretakers and the warm meals specially prepared for him.
Sadly, the moments to relax and indulge the newest member of the rescue were all too brief. Sunday morning brought tears and stress. Just as Clyde was becoming accustomed to comfort, security and love, the dog was found unresponsive. Volunteers worked quickly; he was rushed to an emergency veterinary hospital.
“His screams filled the cold, rainy parking lot of the emergency hospital as the the technicians rushed him inside on the gurney. Our volunteer walked back to her car with a lump in her throat and tears in her eyes.”
Clyde is not able to sit upright, is distorted and confused. As per the emergency veterinarian, Clyde remains in critical condition.
No diagnosis has been shared yet, but we will update as information is made available. For now, Clyde is clinging to life. Meanwhile, Adopt A Boxer Rescue is asking for your support with donations. To help please click here.
We are all pulling for you Clyde.
