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.”
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!
