Zena, abandoned dog, refused to be touched until she could no longer run.

Zena, abandoned dog, refused to be touched until she could no longer run.

This happened over Christmas. I don't know where compassion is anymore. A puppy was running and hiding from people for two weeks after being dumped in an area just outside of Burleson, TX. She ran like she knew she shouldn't let herself be caught. She ran because she knew people aren't good. But on a freezing night, there was no more fight left in her. She laid there for whoever wanted her could take her. She just gave up. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC has picked her up.

Here is what we know about her past. Zena was abandoned in Burleson, TX (a small town) and was running for two weeks in the cold. She wouldn't let herself be touched by a lady who was trying to feed her. During freezing temperatures the lady saw Zena laying on the side of the road freezing to death. She was lifeless. The Good Samaritan grabbed her and Zena didn't fight back at all. Her rescuer took Zena in to RDR’s Texas Vet Partner receiving life saving medical care.

Just look at her photos and video. She is critical right now. She has an entire medical team dedicated to do everything possible to save this girl’s life. Her body is riddled with old and new scabs and sores. There is no fur left on her body. Puss and blood ooze from her skin with every touch.

UPDATE - RIP : I don't even know where to begin. My face is throbbing from crying so very hard. She died... She died in her sleep. This isn't fare. Why? I have a heart breaking update on Zena. Please read this message from Rescue Dogs Rock. “We have devastating news to share Zena has passed away … Zena died of a severe respiratory and skin infection. Her little body was so compromised from months and months of neglect that she just could not fight anymore and she passed peacefully in her sleep.We are so sorry you were failed Zena. We tried so hard to make it right for you. We provided you with the best medical care possible and it still wasn't enough. We are so sorry Zena. You will never be forgotten. Fly high sweet Angel. We love you so very much.”

Ending the year of saving thousands of animals but loosing this sweet innocent baby from abuse just hurts. It hurts our hearts. This is a very bitter sweet time for us. Zena's legacy will live on to save thousands of more animals just like her but we will never stop missing her. It is important to note that just because Rescue Dogs Rock lost Zena that doesn't mean they no longer need our help. In fact they need our help now more than ever. Her vet bills are in the thousands after trying to save her life. You can donate directly [hereor purchase one of Zena's tee shirts, tote bags, hoodies or bracelets that trigger a donation to help RDR. I know this hurts but Zena will never be forgotten and we will never stop saving animals. You can shop on this page in Zena's honor.
