A Severely Neglected Dog Tʜʀᴏᴡɴ Over A Shelter Fence In The Middle Of The Night.

It was midnight when the little dog arrived at the Tri-County Animal Rescue shelter in Boca Raton, Florida, after being thrown over their fence and landing next to a trash can. A shelter worker posted her first impressions of Parker on her Facebook page. She was found there, a lump of fur and knotted.

Newsletter: “When Parker was Tʜʀᴏᴡɴ over our fence near a trash can in the middle of the night, our shelter was honored to save her. Although her hair is glued to her skin, her nails are long. So much so that her feet and wounds were covered with ᴍᴀɢɢᴏᴛs, but I will never forget her smell.”

A team of veterinarians immediately came to work to help save the dog’s life. “I’ve never seen anything like this before and I hope to never see it again,” they said. Five staff members spent over two hours carefully shaving her, changing probes as they warmed up, stitching open wounds and culturing everything, they spent over two hours shaving her. They added: “Our vet discovered a ʟᴜᴍᴘ in her breast and her eyes were always open due to the presence of lymph nodes”.

We told her that the worst was behind her, that she needed to be strong, that she was loved. Her eyes weren’t even fully formed yet and her temperature was starting to drop. We told her she was loved, and the worst was behind her. It was clear that Parker had endured so many years of neglect and torment that her rescuers weren’t sure she could survive the night. But she survived. And she survived the next night, and the days that followed. More miracles followed. Parker started eating again!

At the rescue station, it was explained why Parker’s arrival was called a blessing. “I know some of you might say, because of the way I use the word bless, that it shouldn’t have happened. I totally agree. We don’t even know her original name or if she ever had. Whatever the reason Parker was brought to us, our veterinary staff kept her alive through her courage, quick thinking, and incredible expertise.”

In the opinion of the Humane Society, Parker was kept in a cage and used for breeding. To find out who dumped Parker and to see if there are other dogs like Parker in need of rescue, they’ve opened an investigation and are working with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

According to WPBF News, Tri-Humane is optimistic about Parker’s recovery and hopes she will be ready for adoption in September. Walking in the grass is another achievement for her, as when she first arrived, she couldn’t walk.
