Saved Just In The Nick of Time, ‘Rat Looking’ Pup Slated To Be Euthanized

At an open admissions shelter in San Antonio, Texas, a dog with severe mange that patrons relentlessly teased according to a confidential source, calling her such things as a “rat looking,” was slated to be euthanized. Nobody cared much about the three-year-old pup, as she fought to get attention against younger, more ‘adorable’ looking puppies adopted before her. As the dog, whose name is Donna, story was shared all over social media, people began to rally around her, to get her out of an overcrowded shelter, with very little funds.

Just hours before she was slated to be put down, rescue organization, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, came to her rescue and saved the day. They scooped her up from the shelter and whisked her away in a comfy doggie blanket to let her know that her days of suffering were in effect over. Too weak to stand, or even walk on her own, they carried her out to safety, and into an awaiting vehicle where she would begin a new life, filled with love.

Jackie O’Sullivan, who works for Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, says that Donna has been renamed Dottie and that she is presently at one of their partner facility receiving medical treatment to reduce the severe mange she is suffering from. Doctors have tested her for such diseases as heartworm and others, and are awaiting those results soon. As soon as Dottie is well enough, she will be placed up for adoption. If you or someone you know is interested in donating to Dottie’s care, please e-mail Rescue Dogs Rock at In the meantime, please keep this precious pup in your thoughts and in your hearts.
