This little puppy was just thrown on the street by a pensioner. He neglected this boy for many months, an estimated 15 months. After being hit hard on the road by his throwing force, the puppy got scared and hid under the car. His body was injured, he could only cry for his miserable fate.
The dog was helpless and seemed to let go of everything. Fortunately, there are still people in this world who love him. He’s on the way to the ER now and we named him Bentley. To already be in this condition at 14 weeks old means that Bentley has likely been suffering his whole existence. Bentley is VERY critical. His skin is obviously one of the biggest issues — he’s hairless, mangey and crusty all over from demodex mange.
Bentley is also so skinny with no muscle mass. He’s so dehydrated and his eyes are sunken in. He’s got bed sores and ulcers on his hips from laying on his sides so long. Temperature is too low to read. He cannot open his little eyes. He still cannot maintain his body temp or his blood sugar. He stopped eating so they were going to place a feeding tube. He also needs a urinary catheter placed.
He’s been sleeping a lot while his body is putting up its best fight. He’s nice and comfy on his pain meds and with his fluffy bedding. Bentley continues to rest up and is slowly regaining his strength back. He’s now lifting his head and he’s eating small amounts. He made a lot of effort to stand up, he opened both eyes and even wanted to give kisses! His skin looks better, he’s still opening both eyes, sitting up, eating well, bloodwork looks good and he even barked yesterday! The physical therapy is helping him gradually regain strength. I’m so appy to see his progress.
Hopefully it won’t be much longer until he’s able to walk and be closer to going home.” It’s been a beautiful thing to watch Bentley literally come back to life. So heartwarming to see him be so active! It won’t be long until there’s a smile on this face. Bentley gradually becomes a handsome prince. Bentley is a very sweet dog, ready to play and make fun of anyone. He loves life, loves everything in this new house…..
