For the first time in perhaps her entire life, a stray puppy dubbed Speckles, is receiving veterinary care and love. The badly neglected and ailing puppy was captured this week in Texas, and she is now recovering under the wing of the Lone Star Dog Ranch & Dog Ranch Rescue, outside of Dallas.

On Thursday, the group recounted the pup’s rescue:

We were contacted by Dr. Murray from the ER last night asking if we could help this pup. A friend of hers named Kacy Hendricks who does a lot of rescue on her own was notified of a dog that had been a stray for a while out at a nearby lake. Kacy is a trapping specialist and was able to successfully catch this girl under an RV. She had to climb underneath and pull her out and sadly its a bad situation in that area with strays running everywhere and she said there were bones of dead puppies under the RV.

A veterinary exam revealed that the pup is “absolutely full of hookworms, and is very anemic and covered in demodex,” in addition to running a fever. Last night, she received a transfusion and she is said to be “perkier” today.

As soon as Speckles is well enough to leave the veterinary hospital, she will continue her recovery in a foster home. You can follow Speckles and Lone Star Dog Ranch at this link to Facebook.
