Canelo was “no one’s dog!”

Canelo was “no one’s dog!”

 

He was “no one’s dog,” yet he tried to make believe he had a home – a place where he belonged. In South Texas, this poor pooch lived on the street for months, although every night he returned to the same backyard. He slept on the hard pavement night after night. No one ever petted him, nor did he ever hear the familiar, “you’re a good dog” words anymore. Still he returned to the same yard every evening; in his mind this was where he belonged. He still wore the collar from his past when someone surely must have loved him; why is it he couldn’t find his family?

After awhile, the loneliness, the scavenging for food and his declining health, caused from neglect and malnutrition began to take its toll. By now his immune system had been so taxed, he was unable to fight the infections ravaging his raw skin – nor relieve his constant pain and discomfort. Again and again, he scratched at the open wounds; his skin unmercifully hardening from mange.

And when rescue volunteers sent out their social media plea for help and networked the dog’s tragic plight, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped up. Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the non-profit organization, posted on the group’s Facebook page introducing Canelo to the animal advocates who continuously work, volunteer and donate to help the neediest of dogs:

“South Texas – foster confirmed, rescue confirmed. We will be taking this deserving dog into our rescue. His name is now Canelo. Funds desperately needed. Canelo will need emergency medical treatment and rehabilitation. He is being rushed to the emergency veterinarian hospital. It is a $1,000 to walk into the door of an emergency room veterinarian hospitals.”

Canelo has already spent a few days at the Emergency Hospital and he still is in very rough shape. To think he was wandering alone on the south Texas streets like this for 3 months! He's hairless, his skin is horrible infected, eye infection and raw to the touch . Canelo has a long way to go to a full recovery and rescuers plan to give him everything he needs

We have partnered with Austin Pets Alive! to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed to give Snoop a second chance. Purchase a shirt today and save this innocent victim of abuse! With your help they can give him a new life full of love and pain free!


UPDATE 8-9-17: We have devastating news to share. Canelo has passed away. Sadly Rescue Dogs Rock was just too late to help him even though they tried everything medically possible to give him a chance at survival. All their efforts were just not enough. They are so very sorry, Canelo your life was taken from you, way too soon. We hope that now you are at peace and pain free Rest In Peace. We love you always.
