Update: Stray pregnant dog intentionally slashed in Texas

Less than two weeks ago, Natasha had been rescued by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. At a Texas kill shelter, tiny Natasha had curled herself up into a ball in the far corner of the cold, dirty cement floor of her kennel cage. She had been in severe pain and shock; someone had mercilessly slashed her on her back.

“We were told that she would be euthanized if not out of the shelter immediately,” wrote Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, co-founder Stacey Silverstein. “We could not leave her there to die so we rescued her to safety. Natasha is now receiving life saving medical care at our vet partner in San Antonio.”

On Sunday night, Natasha brought four tiny puppies into the world.

“Our courageous Natasha gave birth this morning to 4 babies,” wrote co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC on their Facebook page. “She is still recovering from the deep wound on her back due to a sick person intentionally slashing her.”

“She is now in a medical foster home close to our San Antonio  Vet where she will nurse her babies and continue to recover from her back wound. Foster Mom says it was a long night as the babies needed to be syringe fed due to Natasha’s milk not coming in.”

Five lives were saved and now will continue to grown and thrive.  To help more dogs – just like Natasha and her new family, donations are needed. Check out the photos and fall in love.

Puppy stuffed in duffel bag with her insides hanging out

An adorable little puppy is recovering from surgery after she was found on Sunday, along with two other puppies, stuffed into a duffel bag and left alone at the intersection of Seven Mile and Schoenherr.

According to Detroit Dog Rescue, the three  10-week-old puppies were hungry and very sick.

“A Detroit resident found three puppies in a duffel bag, one of them was so full of parasites that her rectum prolapsed. Cardi Puppy is in surgery now and Dr. Hood and Dr. Shencopp are working hard to save her. This puppy is going to need a lot of care.”

Executive director of the rescue, Kristina Rinaldi described the surgery, stating veterinarians at Greenfield Animal Hospital performed emergency surgery on Cardi and had to remove three inches of intestines that had already become necrotic. The condition is caused by an overload of parasites at a young age. Because of the parasites, the puppy constantly feels she has to defecate – the constant pressure on the rectum causing the prolapse.

The other two puppies are in better condition. On Monday, Cardi was already feeling better, although her recovery will be a long one.

“Little Cardi is just waking up from emergency surgery after being found in a duffel bag with a prolapsed rectum.

This tiny puppy has a long way to go and will need to remain in intensive care. Once again, we’re turning to you, our supporters, our heroes, and our believers. Let’s rally together to save #Cardi. Every amount accounts and will be applied to Cardi’s care. To help please donate here DetroitDogRescue.com/donate.”

The Detroit Dog Rescue is asking for the public’s help hoping to find the person who did this. Contact the organization here.

Five Aussie shepherd puppies covered in filth found with broken legs

In Amarillo, Texas, a Good Samaritan found five Aussie shepherd puppies covered in filth.  All of the puppies suffer multiple breaks in their back legs, and one has a compound fracture which will require surgery.

The woman who found the puppies on Friday, near Rose Drive close to the park, brought them to the Canyon Road Pet Hospital. NewsChannel10 reports the attending veterinarian, Dr. Janice Wolf has never seen a case like this during her 45 years of practice.

“This one right here has both her back legs broken [white one]. This one is broken right here, and this one has actually a nasty wound on the inside where the leg is broken,” stated Dr. Wolf. “There is a possibility maybe the mother dog could’ve done it. They could have fallen, they could have become entrapped in something that snapped their legs. We just don’t know. There’s no way of knowing for sure what happened to these puppies to cause this.”

Oddly enough, besides their broken legs, the puppies are healthy, and everyone is hoping this is not a case of animal cruelty. Once their legs are splinted and healed, Lost Pets of Amarillo has offered to place them in foster homes and be placed for adoption when ready.

The surgical procedures for the Australian shepherd mixes is estimated to cost $800, and then there will be aftercare for the little ones. Donations can be made by calling the Canyon Road Pet Hospital at 806.359.9465.

Siberian husky puppy with leg deformities not slowing down

A Siberian husky puppy, with severe leg deformities, is showing everyone that being different is no reason to slow down. In fact the eight-week-old pooch, rescued by the Trio Animal Foundation in Chicago, is just one adorable bundle of puppy energy who loves people, treats and toys.

The puppy, now named Possum, was surrendered by her breeder to a local, open access shelter on Thursday. Thorough examinations by the pup’s primary veterinarian, radiologist and orthopedic surgeons, show the pup has reverse tibial abnormalities in both of her rear legs – translated to mean her long bones are backwards. It is suspected that Possum might be a dwarf; a congenital issue that will keep her small in size. No surgical intervention is recommended, but the good news is her hips and spine are in normal position.

In addition, Possum is polydactyl which means she has extra toes on her reversed hind legs. At this point, the veterinary staff will monitor her growth and development, but as long as she is easily mobile, pain free and happy, the rescue organization will concentrate on her social, confidence and skill development. She will receive physical therapy, hydrotherapy and chiropractic care to help build her core strength to support her joints, muscles and limbs.

Check out Possum’s video:

The Trio Foundation has received many adoption applications for Possum, but anyone interested in giving this adorable pooch a home, must understand she will need specialized care for her entire life which requires time and dedication.

Four malnourished puppies covered in feces rescued from inside vehicle

The Scottsdale Police Department seized four malnourished and neglected puppies covered in feces from a vehicle in a parking lot at the Scottsdale Fashion Square earlier this week. Gerardo Aguirre, 20, was arrested and charged with animal cruelty.

 

According to the Facebook page of the Scottsdale PD, Officer Gryzenia rescued a two-month-old German shepherd puppy  and three Labrador retrievers – each approximately four weeks old. When discovered, the little ones were filthy and shivering.

A spokesperson for the Arizona Humane Society states the little ones were taken to the organization’s trauma hospital for treatment. The Labrador retriever puppies are slowly recovering from giardia; a parasitic condition affecting the gastrointestinal tracts of dogs causing diarrhea, vomiting and weight loss. Because he is older, the German shepherd pup is doing much better and will be on his way to foster care until he is ready for adoption.

Aguirre remains in custody.

Get well soon little ones. Awesome work Officer Gryzenia.

Ohio man videoed closed-fist beating Newfoundland puppy

A Warren, Ohio man was videoed  allegedly beating his nine-month-old Newfoundland puppy repeatedly with a closed-fist. James Shaeffer, 64, was arrested on Wednesday and remains behind bars after authorities charged the dog owner with animal cruelty and aggravated menacing.

According to Wkbn27News, Shaeffer’s roommate, Nick Chronister witnessed and videoed the puppy, named Finley’s abuse.  The video initially showed the puppy backing away from Shaeffer and growling as the man approached  – as if the dog knew what was going to happen.

“Really? You want to get mad?,” Shaeffer yells to the pup as he gets closer. And then, with a closed-fist, he strikes the puppy on top of her head with blunt force. “I’ll kill you right now,” he yelled.

“Really? You want to bark at me. You want to bite at me? Really?,” Shaeffer continues in the video. “I will kill you right now B….! Get out of my mother’s f…… house. OK? I’m done,” and then with one hand the puppy’s abuser grabs the puppy’s chin, pulls it upward and slaps at Finley’s face.

Chronister recalls Finley always trying to hide behind his legs  and would cower as Shaeffer approached.

Finley was routinely left in a small cage where she would lie in her own waste. Chronister only stayed with Shaeffer for three weeks, videoed the abuse and sent the proof to his father who notified the Warren Police Department. Finley is safe with the Animal Welfare League. Chronister hopes to adopt the dog after the case is over.

Shaeffer remains in jail in lieu of $12,500. Once he is able to bond out, the judge has ordered him to stay away from all animals.

Be the voice for those who can’t speak.

Grieving teacher comforted about loss of her puppy by sweet 9-year-old boy

 


Heartbreaking reality of 3 dogs with little hope at Texas kill shelter until…

Nearly every hour of every day, Texas kill shelters fill up with the innocent victims of abuse and neglect. The heartbreaking reality of dogs left to languish in the streets – just to be surrendered or captured by animal control and then locked  away into tiny shelter cages to await their deaths as they are walked down a lonely hallway, muzzled and injected with poison.

When Rescue Dogs Rock NYC’s co-founder Stacey Silverstein spotted the photos  and watched the two puppies clinging to each other, she immediately reached out with an offer to help. Tragically these two puppies had been surrendered by their owner. How could anyone let mere puppies wind up like this?

“Where is the respect? Where is the humanity?,” Stacey asked on the group’s Facebook page as she posted the heartbreaking video of the puppies and an adult dog found in horrible condition. “They came into this kill shelter in this condition, thrown onto the hard concrete disease infected floor in obviously critical and weak condition.”

Video#1

There is no blood relationship between the two puppies and the larger dog- that is except for their poor physical condition and the fate the three were about to face.

“We are so disgusted everyday to be confronted with this harsh reality,” Stacey continued. “Once again we will be their protectors and saviors and get them the help they so desperately need.”

As of Thursday afternoon, all three of the dogs have been moved and are safe and receiving medical help. The larger dog has been named Mulani. The puppies are now known as Po and Mishi. Their new lives begin today. It is hoped they survive.

Wanted: Dog owner videoed hitting and dragging terrified pup

On a street in  north Birmingham, England, the owner of a terrified pup was videoed hitting and dragging the little one down a residential street along the pavement. Footage of the disturbing situation was filmed by a concerned passer-by who contacted the RSPCA; an investigation to track down the owner of the dog has since been launched.

According to the Birmingham Live News, RSPCA Inspector Beth Boyd, the witness reported the incident on February 8 after she spotted the petrified dog barely able to move along Warren Farm Road. There she saw the man beating and then dragging the defenseless little guy.

“In the footage you can see the little golden- colored puppy being dragged along the pavement by the man walking him. He appears to be limping and holding up a rear leg. The man is dressed in blue jeans a black jacket with the hood up and trainers. The puppy is being walked on a red lead.”

The witness then described the man leaning over the cowering puppy and repeatedly hitting it. Inspector Boyd is appealing to the public asking anyone who recognizes the man or the dog to get in touch with the RSPCA by calling 0300 123 8018.

Adorable: Police officer adopts puppy left to die in freezing river

A Daytona Beach police officer adopted a puppy left to die in the freezing Halifax River nearly a month ago. On Thursday, the Daytona Beach Police Facebook posted photos of the most adorable puppy now named River and the police officer, Kera Cantrell,  who visited the puppy, as the pooch recovered at the Halifax Humane Society.

It was during the Florida cold snap when temperatures fell below freezing when the tiny pit bull was found under the Seabreeze Bridge in Daytona, Florida. Two Daytona Beach Animal Control officers, James Lee and John Pearson, were able to fish the shivering puppy out of the water, wrap her up in towels and help to raise her body temperature. The puppy was rushed to a nearby veterinarian where she was nursed back to health.

Check out the video as officers try to warm the puppy:

Officer Cantrell loved visiting River so much – who could NOT fall in love with this adorable puppy? The department added the following update to River’s progress:

“Officer Cantrell is now River’s new mom and these are two happy girls!”

Thank you to all our police heroes and thank you for your service. Many happy years together Kera and River. Why not stop by the Daytona Beach Police Department Facebook – tell them Pet Rescue Report sent you and thank them for helping those who cannot speak.
