What a difference a couple of weeks can make! You must remember Dallas, the starving, dehydrated, near-death dog that we told you about just two weeks ago. Look at him now! Dallas still has a way to go, but he is looking and feeling like a brand new boy! (Read Dallas' original story here.)
If you are familiar with this very sad story of an innocent, defenseless dog that was left in a small crate in the dark without heat, food, water, or any human contact, you will notice the huge improvement in him already. Dallas came in with hypothermia, dehydration, starvation, and sores all over his weak, nearly lifeless body. After a stay in the hospital and a couple of weeks of good medical treatment by Dr. Emily Marion and staff at AHS- Tinton Falls, Dallas not only put on 11 pounds, but his faith in humanity has been restored.
Dallas has been eating very well and getting lots of good care and attention from the many friends that he has made at AHS Tinton Falls. He enjoys his walks with staff and volunteer friends, and while he is still under medical treatment, he sure feels so much better. He loves everyone he meets and is a very outgoing and friendly guy, despite the horrible treatment he received from a heartless and callous individual that was supposed to be caring for him. That individual has been charged with animal cruelty, and we hope that justice will eventually be served for the pain and suffering that Dallas endured.
We can't thank you all enough for your thoughts and well wishes for Dallas, and for donating to our Res-Q Fund, which is what is used for all of the medical care that Dallas is receiving. If you would like to make a donation toward his care, please text ResQ to 501501 to make a $10.00 donation or donate here. Dallas will not be available for adoption until his cruelty case is settled and he is cleared medically, but please check back for updates on this sweet boy.
