Update 2/8/2022: From the shelter:

UPDATE 2.8.22 – CCACS is deeply saddened to inform the public that due to Baby Boy’s declining conditions this morning, the decision had been made to humanely euthanize. Despite the greatly positive response we received from our rescue partners and the multiple pending tags that came in, Baby Boy’s conditions declined before we were able to find him placement. Even though he was stabilized, triaged and treated by our vet staff and was stable overnight, we want to thank everyone who has worked hard to help network him and advocate for our animals!

A young dog, not even two years of age, is desperately in need of help. The pup, dubbed Baby Boy, was brought to Corpus Christi Animal Care Services, in Texas, on February 7, and he needs to be tagged for rescue early tomorrow, or he will be put down.

Focus on Furever is pleading for a foster home to come forward, writing:


Information shared about the pup’s situation:

Baby Boy A344230 was brought in today 2.7.22 as part of a cruelty case. He was seen by our vet and given medications. He is QAR but friendly with staff. The injuries were most likely caused by an embedded collar and has some facial swelling. Please let us know if your rescue can help!

Time is of the essence. This young dog has not experienced anything in the way of love or kindness in his short life. Please help him have the chance to know what it means to be loved – networking saves lives!

Note: There is rescue interest, but Baby Boy needs a temporary foster home until 2/18.
