Boden was locked in an apartment and left to starve to death.

 

I can’t believe someone did this to their own dog. Our hearts shattered the minute we saw Boden lying there, helpless, defeated, suffering, yet another victim of senseless starvation! Doesn't this make your blood boil? Please get a Boden shirt, hoodie or tote here to donate to his Emergency medical care!

Baltimore Animal Care and Rescue Shelter BARCS reached out to Rescue Dogs Rock to help with a young dog, dubbed Boden, who was left alone who nearly starved to death in the abandoned apartment. Rescuers had no idea just how bad his condition was.

Boden’s body was so destroyed that he never made it to the shelter. He was rushed straight to their ER vet and he's in the process of being transferred to RDR’s MD 24 hour ER vet for life saving medical care.

Boden is estimated to be about 4 years old, he is too weak to stand or walk. At the time when he was found, no one knew how long Boden had been deprived of water and food. His body score condition had been recorded as a “1” on a “9” point scale. He has oral lesions and paresis (a condition of muscular weakness caused by nerve damage or disease; partial paralysis). We cried when we read the report, it says "prognosis poor" due to body temp and body condition.

The report said he was found in a locked apartment so we hope there is someone to go after. That part is not up to us, we can only focus on helping this poor innocent victim.


UPDATE 4-15-17:  “Boden is the sweetest dog on the planet. At a measly 26 pounds he is so lucky to be alive! His prognosis has gone from poor on Friday to “hopeful” today. He’s eating and on IV fluids. His liver values are concerning, but his blood will be continuously monitored to make sure we are doing everything possible to get him healthy again.”

“We cried when we read the report,” Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stated. Now we need your help. We have created this campaign page to help raise the funds needed to save and care for Boden. Please, if you can, purchase one of our Boden shirts, hoodies, bags or bracelets and give him the second chance at life he deserves.
