Dobby was found hunched over, neglected & unwanted.
He was brought in in a box! OMG. The photos of Dobby were sent to me and I gasped. He didn't even look like a dog anymore. The amount of neglect it takes to put a dog in this condition is heartbreaking. I am sorry but this is not neglect... this is abuse. Neglect is abuse no matter what the law tells us. This is not right.
I know we have all had a really long week with animals coming in every single day but we cannot turn a blind eye to this very special boy. Dobby's skin is 99% covered in horrible infection.
UPDATE 12/19/20: He is the clearly neglected puppy dumped in a cardboard box at a shelter. We learned that he was actually dumped like this by his owner at the shelter. When I heard this news I was shocked. But rescuers were told that no charges can be filed against the "owner" who did this. Why you may ask? Because since they technically tried getting him help leaving him at the shelter they cannot be charged. I know this is frustrating but we must focus on his care and support his rescuers.
UPDATE 12/23/20: This case holds a special place in the rescuers' lives. Dobby's story is almost identical to another neglect, abused and abandoned dog named Parkins. We have great news though. Dobby is progressing incredibly well, eating drinking and already gaining weight! This was the dog that most people would have written off but now he is doing AMAZING. Miracles do happen. Please consider his special edition mug below to help us continue to fund his care.
Dobby's Original Story: His eyes are swollen and you can see every rib. You can see that when he stands it is hard for him to stay up. Dallas Dog RRR immediately rushed the special needs boy to their emergency vets where they were already waiting to save him.
This type of care is extremely expensive for DDRRR. Unfortunately we have no idea who did this to him and we never will. The area in South Texas where he was found is notorious for animal abuse and neglect.
Now we are asking for your help. We are sponsoring his care today and hope you will too! With every purchase you can help fund Dobby's ongoing care and help him find his forever home!
