Tommy will not look anyone in the eyes. He is completely broken.
A picture is worth a thousands words… and this speaks of just how abused Tommy is. He was found curled up in a ball, petrified and full of shame.
Patti at Dallas Dog RRR was sent Tommy’s pictured and was horrified. She knew she needed to act fast and get to the shelter. He was in San Antonio Shelter and was rushed straight to the ER. He is emotional broken won’t make eye contact and hangs his head.
He is safe with DDRRR and in 24 hour care. Staff is awaiting the results of some of his tests. Tommy is covered in severe mange with a bacterial skin infection. He has tick bites all over him and is sore to the touch. Tommy is skin and bone and is so weak that he has difficulty bearing his body weight.
The most heartbreaking part is how ashamed he seems and shakes in fear. Tommy refuses to make eye contact. Thank god this all changes but we need your support.
UPDATE: What do we do with the COVID-19? The rescue still has responsibilities to the dogs we pulled and the ones being surrendered to the shelters. I am truly nervous about where this rescue will be in a few weeks as this gets worse. Will would be able to even survive.
We are sponsoring Tommy’s care. This type of care will cost DDRRR thousands of dollars and those are funds they do not have. Please consider a contribution to help Tommy or get one of his custom products here. Every product triggers a donation to help Dallas Dog RRR save sweet Tommy.
