A Sad Story to Touch Your Hearts

What caused me to share the story about Pal and Gypsy, posted earlier, was the receipt of an e-mail about another abused dog. The e-mail described a little Maltese who lives up the road from this kind woman who reported the problem. The dog was being abused. He was half starved and has little hair. The husband in the house kicks him down the steps if he catches him in the house. The little dog has medical needs that are not being addressed, and the wife throws the dog outside before the husband gets home from work, hoping the coyotes will get him so she does not have to worry about him.

The kind woman was able to rescue the little dog and bring him into her home. She cannot keep him because she has a bad heart condition and other serious health issues. She was in tears because she did not want the dog to go back. The owner called her and said she was going to come and get the dog, but would rather this wonderful caring person just throw him outside and hope the coyotes would just get him and end it all. In the end, the owner did not want him back.

The kind woman contacted Northcentral Maltese Rescue. This afternoon this little one is being flown to safety and caring, loving hearts where he will receive medical attention and eventually a new home and a new forever mom where he will have all the love and care he deserves.
Wednesday night update: His picture is shown here. He arrived safely from his flight and has been taken to a veterinary hospital where he will stay a few days for treatment and evaluation. He is said to be extremely thin and malnourished. His legs have been damaged. One assumes from being kicked so much.
