You all know how much of a dog lover I am, well let me tell you about the amazing and heart breaking story of Walter. He is a two and a half month old puppy who has never had a chance until now. After his owners had tried dipping him in bleach to cure his mange and then proceeded to throw him out of a moving car, left for dead, Walter was lucky to be alive at all. On Easter Sunday, a passerby found Walter and decided that he was going to take responsibility for Walter and do whatever he could to nurse him back to health. He took Walter to the Veterinary Emergency and Referral Group (VERG) where my wife works and Walter has been receiving 24 hour care in the ICU every since…
Here is a recent news report about Walter’s story and the amazing people trying to nurse him back to health – Walter’s Story on ABC!
Walter’s guardian angels need your help to pay for his medical bills and future treatment. Please consider supporting his cause by visiting his blog – Help Save Walter!, becoming a fan of his on Facebook – Help Save Walter! and by donating money – The Walter Fund (note that all donations over the amount needed for his medical bills will be donated to local shelters, rescues and the ASPCA).
Here are a few pictures of Walter. Realize that his condition is VASTLY improved from when he was rescued off the streets. I still don’t understand what would possess someone to do this to an indefensible puppy.
