Her ribs can be seen through her white and black coat. She is extremely love-starved and strongly expresses a need to be cuddled and held constantly.
The Niagara County SPCA is specialised on cases of animal cruelty and neglect. In one week they rescued three abused dogs in a very bad condition. Foreign and Hemi were two puppies who were left in the backyard of their home starved. At the end of the week a Pit Bull named Christmas was also rescued after he was found extremely wounded and covered in fleas.
Sadly Hemi is in a very critical condition, he is only six months old and is very dehydrated and malnourished. Hemi and Foreign both have swollen and bruised legs which makes it very difficult for them to move.
On the other hand it looks like Christmas comes from a very stressful environment. Her ribs are very clear to see from her coat. She or he has endured a badly abuse. Even though she has gone through this terrible situation. Christmas if a very sweet dog and gets very excited when someone is showing her/him love.
All three dogs are now getting the treatments they need and we hope that they will quickly be fully recoved. One of the officers who rescued Hemi wants to adopt him once he is healthy again. We wish all of them good luck and hope that the other two dogs will also have a nice ending.
