Perkins: Adopted, starved and then dumped

Perkins: Adopted, starved and then dumped

 

How do you walk into a shelter with this puppy in this condition and say “I want to give him back” like a broken toy after Christmas?!? This sweet puppy was adopted from the shelter in November and returned yesterday!  Not only was he returned, but they also said he has been in this condition for 2 months! This baby weighs only 9 pounds and he is 5 months old.

This is beyond upsetting. It is called animal cruelty. The shelter is filing charges on this family‼️ This family should never own a dog again! 

Perkins, as he is now called, is now in the care of Dallas DogRRR and arrived last night to the ER. He weighs barely 9 pounds; he is just skin and bones. These pictures do not even show how skinny he is! His bones are sticking out under his skin, his muscle tone is gone and he wobbles when he tries to stand. He is super weak and his temp was 100, higher than at the shelter but still on the low end.

His sodium is off the charts, meaning that this sweet baby had NOT been provided water for a long time. Dallas, Texas has had rain for 5 days so what makes this story worse is that they did not just throw little Perkins outside and ignore him. He was kept inside a home where every day the family had to walk by and look at Perkins and every day they looked him get worse and worse. They made a CHOICE to NOT feed or give him water! They made a conscious choice to watch him starve.

Perkins was STARVED, he was neglected, his eyes were so INFECTED they were covered in slimy discharge! It does not take much to provide food and water! Rescuers at Dallas DogRRR say this is the worst case of cruelty they have seen in three years! They are so angry! We are so angry! This was a dog the family chose to adopt in November only to bring him back to the shelter because after they choose to starve him and no longer wanted him.

UPDATE 2-14-19: Amazing News. The shelter has handed the case off to the authorities and they have taken the case on! This is huge. Perkin’s levels are still coming slowly coming down as needed he remains hospitalized to continue to monitor his care. His eyes remained sealed and we are still treating with medication. We will continue update everyone on sweet Perkin’s progress.

Perkins has a long road ahead. He will remain hospitalized until he is strong enough to go home. The critical part is we need to gets his sodium down slow and steady. If it comes down too fast it can kill him.

Dallas DogRRR and Perkins need your help. We have to all stand with Perkins to show him the love that he has never ever felt. We must not let the actions of his so called "owners" determine his fate. 

Your Purchase Supports

Dallas DogRRR

Dallas DogRRR is a group of dedicated, animal-loving volunteers who support the abandoned dogs of Dallas, Texas, by collecting supplies, paying vet bills, locating foster families, facilitating adoptions, and advocating for a more hopeful future. We are often seen even in the trenches of SE Dallas searching for and rescuing forgotten dogs. We have no administrative fees; no one is on payroll. Every single cent that is donated goes directly to paying for vet bills and food/supplies for our rescued dogs, as well as for boarding (for those that don’t have fosters). We are simply a group of volunteers motivated by the inspiring rescue stories that we get to be a part of every day!
