Puppy Found Starving and Covered in Feces So Relieved to See Rescuers

Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue often receives calls about dogs needing help, but this puppy needs quick help if it wants to survive. After receiving the emergency call, the animal rescuers immediately arrived at the local No. 6 branch of Detroit for help and rescued the puppy.

What they found was shocking—a little puppy covered in feces was sitting in a wire box thrown outside. Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue writes on Facebook: “This evening we received an urgent call regarding a puppy outside during a wire crate covered in feces. Our crew immediately reached bent our friends at the Detroit local department 6th Precinct for assistance and within minutes that they had gotten to the situation and secured the puppy for us.”‘

It was clear upon lifting “Bessie” out of the crate that the poor puppy had been starved and was severely malnourished. The police gently hugged the puppy, wrapped her in a warm blanket, and then handed her to the Detroit pit crew, who sent her to the emergency veterinary hospital for treatment.

Detroit Pit Crew is so thankful for “the heroes at DPD who go above and beyond for the pups.” Once at the hospital, Detroit Pit Crew shared news on Bessie’s condition the subsequent day and revealed her condition is extremely poor.

“Her body condition is terrible as she is around 6 months old and weighed in at 14 pounds,” the rescuers write. “We rushed her to an emergency veterinary hospital last night where she tested negative for parvo and biopsy results showed that she was dehydrated with a high white blood cell count.”

Obviously, despite the terrible ordeal, Bessie felt much better even after one night of nursing. In one of the photos taken in the hospital, she appeared alert and hopeful.

Soon, Bessie’s health is going to be monitored and she or he will continue together with her medical treatment. Detroit Pit Crew writes, “We are happy to report that overall Bessie is doing better today and she or he is looking forward to her new better life.”
