When someone messaged the non-profit animal rescue group ThisIsHouston last weekend, volunteers raced to the rescue of a 10-week-old abandoned puppy.

“This little girl was baking on the pavement this morning; someone messaged our page asking for help and she had apparently been there since last night. Nobody was willing to at least pull her out of the road, so she just laid there unable to move like a sitting duck…”

The puppy was too weak, too hungry and too injured to walk, so she collapsed in the middle of the road and just waited to die. And all night she stayed on that lonely country road. Cars drove by, people walked near her, and finally one Good Samaritan heard her weak cries.

Since Saturday, Maggie has made progress, but she still has a long journey ahead of her. She’s still being hospitalized at Vergi 24/7 where she will stay until she is out of the woods. She is receiving medicated baths, and the staff is waiting for her to become more stable before sedating her for a bath so she can really have her wounds and scabs scraped away.
Maggie has sarcoptic mange, Demodex mange and a secondary skin infection. Her PCV levels are low, but are expected to rise. She is definitely one of the worst pups the rescue has had in their care.
It’s heartbreaking for a puppy to get this critical in such a short period of time, but Maggie is proving to be courageous, and her fighting spirit will get her through this.

Maggie has an Amazon wish list.  She has a foster patiently waiting for her, and Maggie will be so excited to head home to all her goodies waiting for her! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/VO9L4HSBLZSW…
