Update on Kringle: Puppy that has been ‘to hell and back’

A tiny puppy, only six weeks old when rescued from Mexico, has been “to hell and back,” however his recovery continues to amaze even the foremost stalwart supporters and veterinarians. And now at 12-weeks-old, Kringle is out of the hospital and can be continuing his recovery at his family.


When found in late December, Kringle had been severely burned, and his ears had nearly been cut away. Fly larvae had settled in his ears, and then the puppy was so dehydrated veterinarians weren't ready to locate a vein to start an drip, and instead resorted to employing a catheter to administer SubQ fluids. And if that weren’t enough to form a small puppy exclaim in pain, he suffered from severe septicemia (blood poisoning); he needed a miracle to survive.

The puppy’s recovery was difficult. Every other day, he had surgery to get rid of the dead, burned skin. Weeks later, he was transferred to a different hospital for more specialized treatment, however Kringle made many friends and enjoyed the parts of his recovery efforts that included spread treats and tiny morsels from the staff’s lunches.

Kringle’s first skin transplant involved using fish skin, but at an equivalent time his eyes began to protrude of his head because he didn’t have eyelids to stay them moist. Again, a surgical team operated on the pup and made him eyelids, but sutured his eyes shut for quite every week to assist them heal. Sadly, one eyelid didn't compute as surgeons had planned.

Kringle still features a great distance to travel, and for now we is going to be getting ointment in his eyes regularly and can return to the hospital every three days for bandage changes and an update on his recovery. Next week, we is going to be evaluated by an ophthalmologist to find out more about the condition of his eyes that were burned during his egregious mistreatment and abuse. “Kringle’s eyes are open, but the flaps they pulled the skin from remain sutured. He features a little bit of cloudiness in his problematic left eye, and can remain on drops.”

No one knows who abused Kringle and certain the person(s) will never be apprehended or punished for this horrific crime. Fortunately, this puppy is one among the lucky ones. If you see something, say something. Be the voice for those that cannot speak.
