Guinness: He's been starved and abused for a very LONG time.
**** UPDATE **** : For those of you following this story of our starved and tortured Baltimore guy, here he is getting a blood transfusion late today after he started to crash. He refused to eat and his gums became pale. He's obviously critical at 29lbs but he had been stable until this afternoon, terrible shape but vitals were stable.
Dogs in this horrific of condition can turn on a dime, so we cannot say he will survive, but we can say that everything that can be done to save him is being done! We love Guinness. His story kills us and we hope and pray he will survive. Please join the fight! If Guinness doesn't have all of us, what does he have?!
This brave boy is fighting for his life this holiday weekend. He was found on the side of a house in the dirt in Baltimore, emaciated, battered & covered in fleas. He was very near death and very lucky to be alive.
Rescuers sent him directly to an ER vet after animal control picked him up. Rescue Dogs Rock got a plea and had him sent to their awesome MD vet partner.
Here is what we know. Guinness is only 29lbs and he should be around 80lbs! Vet staff say he was starved. To say he's in horrible condition would be an understatement. He's not only emaciated, anemic, dehydrated and covered in sores, he also has a BROKEN leg! But there is NO way he could survive surgery so the leg is splinted until it can be addressed after he gains weight and strength.
Guinness is in critical condition and fighting for his precious life. He is getting around the clock care of the emergency vets. He's in as bad of shape as ANY dog we have ever taken. He's been starved and abused for a very LONG time. He did not deserve this.
We will do EVERYTHING in our power to give Guinness the life he deserves but the fight to live must come from within him! We LOVE him already and this is going to be a battle, but we are prepared. He is too weak to even move or lift his head yet he trusts the medical staff and looks at them with grateful eyes.
We NEED you now! We NEED all of you to join the fight to save Guinness. We need good to triumph over evil. We have partnered with Rescue Dogs Rock to help raise the funds needed for Guinness' recovery. Will you help me save another innocent victim of abuse? Please, if you are able, consider purchasing an item below to help save Guinness' life!
