When New York City-based Rescue Dogs Rock NYC founder Jackie O’Sullivan got the call that a tiny, emaciated Chihuahua puppy named Liam was barely clinging to life, she stopped everything she was doing to help. The pup, who is only 7-months-old is fighting with every ounce of strength he has to will himself to live and survive the neglect and abuse he suffered from a neglectful owner. A heartbroken Jackie took to the rescues groups Facebook and wrote:
“Little Liam had two of our awesome volunteers visit him last night, and they brought him a soft toy and blanket and let him know he has a whole village of people who love him to death and are praying so hard he can be strong and pull thru this horrible ordeal. “
“They spoke softly to him and gave him soft kisses. He looked at them and even tried to move his broken little body. He is so weak. Aside from being in oxygen, he has a feeding tube in his nose to get the glucose he desperately needs to survive. He cannot tolerate fluids right now as his little chest filled with fluid and had to be tapped. We so don’t want this horrible life to be the end of the road for this precious baby. He is only 7 months old & down to 3 pounds.”
Jackie goes on to describe the sheer neglect of Liam’s past family saying,
“So basically, he somehow suffered severe trauma in the home, went thru two weeks of suffering in the home and returned to the ER vet last night emaciated with pressure sores, low blood sugar, dehydrated and near death. To say we are UPSET & HORRIFIED is an understatement! They abused him, let him suffer and then brought him in to be killed! WTH is that! It’s an absolute horror for this baby.”
According to Jackie, an animal cruelty investigation has been opened so that those responsible for inflicting this abuse will be held responsible. Liam’s medical bills are growing and Rescue Dogs Rock NYC is asking that anyone wishing to make donations, visit their site to learn more. Please keep Liam in your thoughts and in your hearts as he fights hard for his life.
