Yoda had neighbors throwing rocks at him after his owner died.

Yoda had neighbors throwing rocks at him after his owner died.

Believe it or not Yoda had an owner once, about 2 to 3 months ago. We can't imagine he was a very good owner as Yoda’s present condition did not happen in just 2 months. His owner died and he was just " let out" into the neighborhood in a very rural part of AL. Apparently many of the neighbors continually saw him, did nothing, expect to throw stones at him and chase him away. After we heard this from witnesses we were beyond angry.

Yoda obviously was severely suffering but no one came to his aid. Finally, two months after his owner died, animal control was somehow alerted to Yoda’s plight and proceeded to trap him and bring him to the shelter. That is when we were called, as clearly Yoda is in grave medical condition and a shelter is no place for him. Clearly he will need extreme medical care and his road to recovery will be long and hard. RDR said, “These cases typically cost a small fortune to treat… We ask that you find it in your hearts to make a donation towards Yoda.”

Asides from having severe mange, he has heart worm, is heavily infested with worms, and has been eating trash in order to try to survive. At the Emergency Vets he is throwing up and pooping worms and whole pieces of garbage and rocks. This brought many of us to tears.

This poor soul has certainly hit rock bottom. Today is riddled with infection, emaciated with no hair, dehydrated and very weak. He's certainly seen the worst that humans have to offer and we hope we can turn his life around.


UPDATE 1-14-14 : We have great news on our beloved Yoda. He is ready to leave the Emergency NY Vet and continue his recovery in a loving medical foster home. Yoda is 2 year old Shep /lab mix and 27 lbs. He's got the best ears we have ever seen. Just look at those things! He’s very mellow and sweet and loves other dogs. The vet staff at the emergency clinic are totally in love. We don't want Yoda to linger at the vet longer than he has to. He still on meds for his skin and recovery.

You can still help Yoda and his rescue Rescue Dogs Rock in their recovery by purchasing one of his shirts, hoodies, totes or bracelets that donate to his medical care! These make great gifts and each and every one helps save this discarded and unwanted soul. Help us give Yoda the second chance at life he deserves.
