Polo is a victim of backyard breeders who then tried to euthanize him.
When Polo was brought into a NC veterinarian’s office by his owners to be euthanized. Our partners at RDR saw this poor innocent baby and knew they had to step in. They asked the “owners” if they could take him.
He was barely recognizable as a dog, the purebred weighs barely 10-pounds and had to have lived his short life in one of misery and neglect. Now we are asking for your help!
Rescue Dogs Rock wrote “Still think it’s okay to buy a dog from a puppy mill breeder?” on their Facebook page as they shared Polo’s story and a plea for help. This tiny abused boy has been horrible physical condition.
“Although the details of Polo’s past life are vague and may never be known, it is disturbing to think the dog’s owner watched this pup’s health deteriorate and never sought help. His condition didn’t just happen after days, weeks, or even months.” stated the Pet Rescue Report.
The Emergency Doctor and staff say this took years of neglect and abuse to get this destroyed. He is almost completely furless and what little bit of fur Polo even has left is completely matted. He suffers from severe bacterial (one of the worst doctors have seen) and yeast skin infections. His ears are infected, he has acute dental disease, and his nails painfully overgrown.
His own family just through Polo out like trash. Now we are asking for the public’s help. We have created this special page to help raise funds needed to save his life and support RDR.

UPDATE 4-6-17: Yay Polo! He's come a long way from being a euthanasia request from the selfish breeder who did this to him in NC! He has been in an amazing medical foster home with a foster mommy who has taught him what love is! Now he is looking for his forever home. Apply here if interested.http://rescuedogsrocknyc.org/.
