Gumbo and Mouse have lived their lives at the end of a chain!
Truth is hard to hear but harder to see. This Great Dane and Beagle were relinquished by a hoarder to the team at Two by Two Animal Rescue. The “owner” finally concluded that he did not have the means to care for his dogs. Now we have two victims who suffered for no reason. Both of these dogs have lived their entire lives at the end of a chain with no shelter. Both were nearly starved to death.
The Great Dane is named Mouse and weighs only 60 pounds which is half of his ideal body weight. He is full of parasites and heartworms. Despite everything he has been through his rescuers say he is the sweetest boy.
The second dog is named Gumbo. These two babies have been there for each other. Gumbo weighs only 16 pounds. He is extremely weak and very lethargic. He will gain strength quickly as he starts on his refeeding program. Gumbo is suffering with parasites and heartworms as well. Gumbo wags in appreciation of the new found nurturing.
UPDATE: Gumbo is now with a foster mommy. She reports that he has no voice. He tried to howl but nothing would come out and he seems strained. She thinks its because both Gumbo and Mouse have been starved for so long or from the heavy chain around their necks. She is working day and night to help him recover physically and emotionally. Mouse continues to heal at the vets.
Please help us sponsor both of their care so Two by Two Animal Rescue can continue to save animals just like Gumbo and Mouse.
We are sponsoring the care them with one of our “My heart is paved with paw prints.” aprons, pillows, keychains or cups below. If you can consider one for yourself or a friend and help give both of these babies a second chance at life.
