Thumbelina: The skeletal dog.

Thumbelina: The skeletal dog.

 

Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs wrote, “We just accepted one of the worst cases of starvation into our rescue family. We have absolutely no words for the condition of this starved female German shepherd mix.”

The skeletal dog, dubbed “Thumbelina,” is a shadow of what she should be…a healthy dog of her breed should weigh 75 pounds, but she weighs just 14 pounds. Her body is devoid of fat and muscle – she is so frail that it seems impossible that she is still alive. When Thumbelina arrived, her temperature did not even register…heating pads are being used in an effort to bring her body temperature up.

She has lifted her head several times to enjoy the small caloric set meals that the hospital staff has been feeding her. 

Her temperature has regulated to just about normal, and her bloodwork came back unremarkable, showing no signs of serious underlying health conditions, besides the obvious of being nearly starved to death. 

The hospital staff said she was just hours away from sure death when she was brought into their practice early yesterday afternoon. Thumbelina was brought in by a young girl who had found her in a rural area near a lake when she was hiking early yesterday. The authorities are investigating for any tips or leads in the case, but so far they haven't come up with anything solid. This is an ongoing investigation and we just pray that someone will say something. This dog did not deserve this abuse. 

I know these images are hard to see but PLEASE I cannot do this without you. I, again, am begging for you to help me save Thumbelina. With one simple shirt you can give this tortured soul a second chance at life every abused and tortured animal deserves. 

UPDATE 12-22-16 : We think that Thumbelina is making amazing progress! The hospital staff has reported that Thumbelina loves to be out and lay on her blanket during the day. She is starting to play a little bit with her squeaky toys and is really anxious to get on her feet, which she is still not able to do alone. 

She has very little to no muscle mass, which is needed to hold her up on her own feet. However the doctors are hopeful she will be able to stand soon, with the regular nutrition, and manipulation of her legs and body by the staff, to give her what she needs to make a full recovery. We are so happy to see her enjoying life, and smiling again. We would like to thank everyone for their continued prayers and support for Thumbelina.


UPDATE 1-16-17:  THUMBELINA in her forever home! She's so happy! Her daddy gave her this elephant toy the day they met and she doesn't go anywhere without what's left of it. This is the power behind a Hendrick & Co. tee, hoodie, tote or bracelet. With every purchase you help save animals just like Thumbelina!
