Linda sits alone in the street. Her eyes tell a sad story of neglect and loneliness.
All alone and unable to walk, Linda waits to perish on the streets. Her eyes tell a sad story of neglect and loneliness. Linda is losing her hair, covered in mud and starving. She seems to be immobile by some type of injury to her back. Her body is raw. The locals in Peru look at her as a burden. She did not ask for this.
While advocating for the local street dogs and trying to educate the public, a volunteer named Edith came upon Linda and immediately reached out to ask if New York Bully Crew would help her. She could not leave her on the street in this condition.
NYBC immediately agreed to commit to Linda's emergency medical care and treatment and asked Edith to transport her to the emergency clinic. Edith found a taxi that would transport them both to the clinic where she has started her emergency treatment. Linda’s journey is just beginning.
UPDATE 9/25/19: At the emergency clinic doctors ran bloodwork and other several tests. We are waiting to hear the results. She is safe with Edith but desperately needs some immediate supplies, medication and food. Edith cares for 80 animals daily at a small sanctuary.
UPDATE 9/27/19: Linda had another evaluation with the regular vet. She has hepatic disease, damaged to her liver most likely caused by parasites. She also has a skin fungal infection along with being malnourished. Her hips are damaged, probably from the years of living neglected in the streets. She was prescribed antibiotics and pain meds and we hope for Linda can recover. Her care will continue.
This type of care will cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars for New York Bully Crew to save Linda’s life. We are here to help. We are sponsoring Linda’s emergency care with one of our animals saving jewelry pieces you see below.
If you can consider one for yourself or a friend and help this innocent street dog recover from this and find a new life full of love.
