Noah is unable to walk from abuse and neglect.
This tiny baby, Noah, was taken in yesterday from the NYC Animal Control. Noah is tiny, 1 pound or less, (about the size of a small thin hamster). He was dumped because he was the runt of the litter and he has neurological issues causing his back legs unable to work. Noah's temperature was too low to even register at the shelter so he was put on heat. Now we are asking for your help. This is abuse and neglect!
Noah can't walk but he gets around using his front legs. He's starting on puppy gruel (he has teeth) and is eating well. He wines sometimes as no doubt he's missing his mom along with his siblings. The shelter listed his prognosis as “guarded”. Volunteers at Rescue Dogs Rock knew if they did not step in Noah would die. They have rushed him to their Emergency Vet for life saving medical care.
RRD made a promise to little Noah that they will do everything possible to save his life. The prognosis for his legs does not look good. It looks like he has a luxated hip on one side with severe muscle atrophy and this is why he can't currently stand or walk. On top of this he does also have hydrocephalus. Meaning he has excessive accumulation of fluid in the brain. Treatment is often a tube (shunt) inserted surgically into the brain to drain excess fluid. Nothing can be done until Noah is stabilized.
X-rays have been sent to RDR’s surgeon to see what he recommends about his hip and the hydrocephalus. Please keep this precious munchkin in your thoughts and prayers and help if you can! We desperately need it.
