Meet sweet, sweet Dustin! Dustin came to us from a animal control case where he was one of 9 very emaciated dogs, among various other animals. His owner was found deceased, but unfortunately was not found until 5 long weeks had passed. The animals tried whatever means they could to survive, but regardless several of them did not make it. Some of them have been starved so severely, it is still very much a hit or miss wether they will recover. They have lots of fleas which has also made them very anemic in the process, making recovery that much harder. Dustin, which which means “brave warrior” because of his strong will to survive in conditions in which he shouldn’t have, is one of them. He will require lots and lots of care, very small frequent meals to wake up his tummy and system again, in addition to vet treatment and care. If you’d like to personally assist in his recovery or lengthy vet care, any amount would be appreciated to help him in his long fight ahead. If you’d like to donate something with more of a personal touch, like a item or dog food, he would be very appreciative to anything, when he has gone so long without. He is just the most lovable boy, when we picked him up he laid in our lap-ready to go, begging for human touch. Gracie (who’s 8 ) said when he looked into her eyes, she could tell in her heart he was saying “thank you” .
After losing his owner, going 5 weeks without food and beginning to lose hope, Dustin arrived to us being barely skin and bones. Over several months of slowly regaining weight and lots of TLC (gaining a total of 15lbs!!!) he is back in tip top shape!
Dustin has some exciting news!!!
