Even as seasoned rescuers, we still get shocked by the condition some of these pups are in when we find them.
Two days ago (June 5 2017) someone found this puppy all alone by a dumpster and turned him into the Harris County animal shelter. He has a large open wound on his back that was completely infested with maggots. The maggots literally ate holes deep into his body. Apart from the maggots, he was anemic, emaciated, covered in fleas… and only 3 weeks old. He should still be nursing from his mom but he was all alone. Literally thrown out with the trash.
We don’t know how he ended up by the dumpster, and it really doesn’t matter now. As soon as the incredible veterinarians at the shelter told us about him and how long it took them to pull the maggots out of his tiny body, we knew we had to help.
He is with one of our most experienced bottle-baby fosters since he requires around the clock syringe feedings. He has had multiple vet visits already to make sure we’re controlling his terrible infection. At only 3 weeks old and 1.5 pounds we have to be incredibly careful with the drugs we use; many can be harmful to his young kidneys and liver. He’s on multiple medicines and hydrotherapy, but he is still so terribly uncomfortable. He only finds it easy to sleep while his foster mommy is holding him. 💔
We have high hopes for this little fighter, even though his prognosis is still guarded. We will do everything we can for him because he deserves a full life and a happy ending. If you would like to donate to his care, please do. We will need it to cover his already piling medical bills.

His foster mommy has named him Fuzz Buzz: he’s fuzzy in the front and buzzed in the back. We believe he is a small breed but won’t know for sure until he gets bigger and stronger. And we pray he will. Soon.
