Rupert was brought back to the shelter dying by his new "owners".

Rupert was brought back to the shelter dying by his new "owners".

 

6 months ago Rubert was adopted from the shelter in perfect condition. Two days ago he was brought back to the shelter by the same person only now he is dying. This story will make you very angry. I can’t believe what they did to him.

Rupert ended up at BARCS in Baltimore as a healthy and happy 6 month old puppy. He weighed 33 pounds. And he was one of the lucky ones to be adopted out to a new family. Sadly, from there things took a very wrong turn.

Rupert was returned to shelter a few days ago as a skeleton approximately 6 months after his adoption weighing only 23 pounds (10 lbs less than he was a 6 months old!) How did this happen?! He could not stand or walk when he arrived and Rupert was very near death! The adopter said he would eat & just not gain weight. Rescuers responded saying, “hmm doubtful!”

Rescue Dogs Rock knew they needed to step in and save this boys life. Rupert was transferred to Rescue Dogs Rock M.D. Emergency Vet. He's not even strong enough to lift his head. This is beyond upsetting but we are happy to report there is an investigation into his abuse! Our only hope is that something comes of it. Now we are focused on saving his life and we need your help!

Rupert has a long road ahead of him and he is not out of the woods. Rescue Dogs Rock wrote, “We are in desperate need of donations for Rupert's emergency care!”


UPDATE 5-26-17:Rupert had a visitor tonight & as you can see he grows stronger every day! We are thrilled & we are so in love with this amazing dog! He's gentle & loving & holds no grudges. He blows our minds with his amazing temperament. We ❤️  you Rupert and we will continue to honor you any way we can!

This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with RDR to create the animal saving shirts, sweaters and accessories to raise the funds needed to save poor Rupert. What these cowards did to him is horrible but we are here now to correct the wrong. Purchase your animal saving tee today and help us save this innocent victim of neglect and abuse.
