Heartbreaking photos of puppy trying to lick dead litter mate awake in store window

A tiny Pekingese puppy tried his best to lick his dead litter mate awake while heartbroken onlookers teared up as they watched the pup in a pet store window in Athens, Greece.

According to the Daily Mail, the pet store, located in the shopping district of Pagrati, can be seen licking the face of his companion. The puppy licks and nudges his lifeless companion in an attempt to bring the little one back to life. According to local media, the puppies had been kept in a small window container – newspaper covered the feces and urine from the little ones.

The pet shop did not have a license to sell dogs or cats and animal rights advocates are currently in the process of obtaining a court order to perform a necropsy of the deceased puppy. That same pet store had a complaint filed against it several years prior.

No arrests have been made at this time.

Update: Husky puppy abused in viral video removed from home

In Dewitt County, Illinois, the The DeWitt County State’s Attorney Office is investigating a video posted on social media that showed a husky puppy allegedly being abused by a woman. The dog could be seen slammed to the ground and yelled at before being repeatedly hit by the owner. 

The woman held the puppy’s muzzle and neck for more than a minute while the frightened pup yelped in pain and fear. The woman struck the dog several times before shoving the defenseless pooch back into a kennel cage.

According to the Dewitt Daily News, the sheriff’s department stated they have completed their investigation and has turned over all the information to the Dewitt County State Attorney’s Office for further action.

 “We want to add that we determined the dog depicted in the video is no longer in the care of the woman depicted in the video. Our investigation has been completed. The evidence has been forwarded to the DeWitt County State’s Attorneys Office for further action,” the sheriff’s office confirmed.

The video has since been deleted, but is still available to be viewed here. (Scroll down the very informative page from a reputable and compassionate training organization) Hopefully this husky also has a happy ending.

Milo is just 4-months-old and already he was rejected by his family

Adopted!

Meet Milo – just four-months-old and because he wasn’t perfect, his family left him outdoors since he was barely able to eat for himself. This gorgeous German shepherd puppy suffers from vestibular syndrome and requires medical intervention. Sadly, the tips of his ears have been attacked by flies leaving open wounds. Still he is a happy puppy and just looks for attention and love from the human he meets.  A volunteer tells Milo’s sad story:

“The former family who owned this puppy had to give him because they couldn’t afford the care he needs. The vet team cleaned him up and has given him much love, but he needs help now, and the shelter is full and he is adorable.”

Viral video of husky puppy abuse raises social media outrage

When a video quickly went viral on social media Friday evening, showing a woman from Leroy, Illinois tackling a Siberian husky to the floor and abusing him while the frightened puppy screamed and struggled, animal advocates became outraged. Southend Dog Training posted the horrific video on their Facebook page strongly condemning the woman’s actions:

THIS IS WRONG BEYOND WORDS SHARE, SHARE, SHARE.

Normally I would not share stuff like this as it’s difficult to watch but this lady appears to be trying a technique that is unnecessary in dog training and that’s Alpha Rolling dogs. Not only is it a violent behaviour, it’s dangerous for the handler, it’s scary for the dog and you simply do not need to do it.
This is not dog training, this is flat out abuse and the poor dog has no idea what’s going on, accept the human as lost the plot.
This women should not be anywhere near dogs, period !”

The calls and emails to authorities have been swift and effective thanks to concerned animal advocates. An Instagram screenshot from the puppy’s owner stated the husky had tried to attack her five-pound dog. The woman stated this had been an isolated incident and  admitted she had “pushed it too far by slamming it [the puppy] back down.”

The husky and another dog have been reportedly removed from the home. Updates will be provided as information is made available.

The video can be viewed on Southend Dog Training’s Facebook page. ( WARNING: The video is extremely graphic and very disturbing)

Puppy surrendered in field loaded with ticks gets new chance at life

When a photo of the four-month-old shepherd appeared on social media Tuesday afternoon, animal advocates gasped in shock. Viewers were horrified at the amount of ticks on the puppy.  Volunteers from Animal Services in the City of Mesquite Texas reached out for help  on Facebook.

“This poor 3-4 month old Shepherd mix was just surrendered in the field and as you can see its AWFUL condition. He has been given a nexgard and some good food, but he is in desperate need of rescue immediately.”

And the plea for help worked. Early Tuesday evening, Dallas DogRRR – Rescue Rehab.Reform stepped forward for the dog now named Caleb.

“His ears are too heavy with ticks to perk them up, and he’s content resting his weary head in your hand for support.

We’re going to call him CALEB, and he was such a good boy at the vet. He was poked, scraped, examined, and by the time I left him, he finally gave me a little kiss. We’re running a full blood panel, but at this time he’s not in need of a transfusion. He will remain at the vet for observation tonight, and we will slowly watch the ticks die and fall off like Bernie. To see them all over his ears, neck, in between his toes, and on his back was truly heart wrenching,” the organization posted on their Facebook page introducing the puppy to the rescue community.

Information concerning Caleb’s surrender has not been clarified, however updates will be provided when made available. For now, the emphasis is on Caleb’s recovery and this very sweet dog getting a new chance at life.

Starving puppies abandoned on side of road in cardboard diaper box

Had it not been for a Good Samaritan who noticed a cardboard diaper box on the side of the road in San Bernardino and stopped to investigate, two tiny puppies would have died. For days the eight-week-old pups sat in feces, urine and filth. They had no water, food or shelter. Who can even imagine anyone having such disrespect for life?

 

“The man found the puppies and reached out on Facebook when someone told him to contact me,” Faith Easdale, founder of the rescue group Dream Fetchers stated. “Can you imagine how thirsty they were in this heat? Can you imagine how hungry these already starving babies were? Scared and wondering what’s happening? Feeling weak and fading. And a kind person takes you out of that box!”

The puppies had spent at least two days in the box and when rescued were dehydrated and lethargic. They were rushed to the  Camino Pet Hospital.

Video #1

When the puppies arrived at the hospital, the brindle collapsed from dehydration; he was able to be revived with intravenous fluids. Both are very weak, but reported to be in stable condition. They are also being treated for hook and round worms. It may be premature to guess at their breed, but thus far the majority has leaned towards Boxers.

“I guess at the point someone can do this they really aren’t human anymore,” Faith added. “We all have a battle. We are their only chance. Use your voices and fight the abuse.”

Updates to follow.

Dying 8-month-old puppy survives the night after miracle rescue

A dying eight-month-old puppy was saved on Friday night from a Dallas, Texas shelter because of a miracle rescue coordinated by volunteers and animal advocates. First thoughts were that the weak and fragile pup had been a burn victim; no one knew what torturous life she had lived in such a brief time. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped up with the miracle. No one knew if she would survive the night.

 

Video #1

The dog arrived at the emergency hospital in Dallas and was named Lola. At first, she was completely unresponsive and urgent medical care was her only hope. Between the heat of the night and her fragile compromised physical condition, Lola would not have survived much longer at the shelter.

“We were in constant touch with the ER medical team until late into the night and first thing this morning,”  stated Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. “Lola has a lot going on. Demodex mange is confirmed along with pyoderma and a bad skin infection. Her skin is swollen, red, bloody and raw in places.”

And as if that wasn’t enough for any puppy so young to suffer with, Lola is nearly hairless and dangerously anemic; her white blood cell count remains high and she has a heavy concentration of hookworms. Veterinarians have diagnosed her with bilateral corneal ulcers, and it is hoped her eyesight can be spared.

Lola was given a blood transfusion when brought in last night as well as intravenous fluids and antibiotics.

“We were terrified we’d get a message over night that Lola was gone and that we were too late. Luckily that did not happen and Lola is still with us. We are so grateful she survived the night,” Stacey added on Saturday morning. “She is far from out of the woods, but we will take it. She will remain at the 24/7 emergency vet hospital for the foreseeable future.”

Yonkers woman caught on video abusing and kicking 6-month-old puppy

In Westchester County, New York, a woman from Yonkers was caught on video throwing and kicking her 6-month-old puppy as it cowered in the corner. On Thursday, the SPCA of Westchester announced the arrest of Kiani Wright, 41.

According to the SPCA of Westchester’s press release, police received a call from a Good Samaritan on May 13 after witnessing the puppy being dragged, picked up by the back of the neck and then violently thrown over a railing in front of the suspect’s apartment. The puppy, named Pebbles became the subject of an alleged cruelty investigation. The dog was transferred to a veterinary hospital for treatment. The pup was treated for a broken tooth and abrasions that had been bleeding at the time she was rescued.

The SPCA’s HLE Unit were able to obtain a video from a nearby security camera that captured Pebbles’ owner brutally assaulting her.

Wright has been charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty. Neighbors say it isn’t the first time poor Pebbles was abused, but now the friendly pooch is safe and will be made available for adoption in a few days.

The video is difficult to watch – it is graphic and can be viewed at this link.

Third abandoned and tortured puppy found in Oakland trash pile

On Monday afternoon, a third shepherd puppy was found tortured and dumped in a trash pile in Oakland. Just two days before, two abandoned and badly injured puppies were found in the same pile of trash. One of the four-month-old German shepherd puppies was missing a paw, and the other pup’s face and mouth was so mangled, she has not be able to eat.

According to CBSBNews, Pali Boucher of Rocket Dog Rescue stated volunteers and Animal Services had searched the entire area on Saturday when the first two puppies were discovered. The third puppy found, also has a broken jaw. It is feared a serial animal torturer could be inflicting these egregious injuries to the puppies. This puppy may not have been from the same litter, but suffers similar injuries.

“It’s a similar break. It’s exactly the same break where the other puppy’s jaw had been broken on both sides,” Pali stated.

Oakland Animal Services have not confirmed the cases are related, but have joined with the Oakland Police Department in an investigation. Pet Food Express is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) involved in animal cruelty case.

“We are offering the reward to encourage someone to come forward who has information about who is harming these puppies so we can stop it from happening again. We are all animal lovers at Pet Food Express and want to protect them as best we can,” stated the company’s owner Michael Levy in a statement.

The four-month-old puppy is being cared for at Oakland Animal Services emergency vet clinic.
