Paulie: Dumped with mange and parvo
Paulie, one of 6 puppies dumped a week ago at an AL shelter, is in dire shape. The "dumper" said they were strays, yet knew their parents were a shih tzu & a chi. This makes us wonder the real story.
No one took them because they aren't perfect. All six all have sarcoptic mange, with Paulie being the worst. Rescue Dogs Rock was asked to help save their precious lives and of course they immediately swept into action! The rescuers came to find out that the shelter refused to vaccinate them saying they were too young (under 6 weeks), however they have their puppy choppers which proves they are at least 8 weeks old.
Rescue Dogs Rock unknowingly took these precious babies with NO vaccines and now they are ALL at a vet. Paulie has been diagnosed with dreaded parvo! His gums are pale he's lethargic completely dehydrated hairless and in pain.
We are so sick & upset! They should have been vaccinated when they came in! It may not have prevented this, but at least they would have has some defense.
We are heartbroken to know these tiny babies are fighting for their lives. None of this is fair or right! Rescue Dogs Rock will do everything in our power to save them, as they always do.
