Help Save Pax - Starved Puppy

Animal control responded to complaints today from neighbors of an emaciated puppy with strong odor being kept outdoors in the heat with no food or water. Being an inner city animal control, they often went on calls like this, but no one was prepared for what they found. A skeleton of a puppy wagged his emaciated body as they approached. He then collapsed from the exertion and excitement of greeting a visitor, having been alone for days. The officer took him off his chain and brought him into the home, where he staggered over to the toilet and drank all the water out of it before she could stop him. Infected skin flaked from his body as he continued to wag his tail falling over because he was so dehydrated and starved. He had an extremely strong odor from his skin infection and the feces and urine he was living in. The owners admitted that he hadn’t eaten in days. RBARI rescuers raced to meet animal control and get the puppy immediate medical care. The puppy’s tail never stopped wagging – he was so excited to finally have human contact and kind touch. The rescuers took him into their arms in a big fluffy towel because he was so frail. The towel seemed to weigh more than his tiny body. This happy, dying puppy quickly found his name – Pax – meaning peace because he had finally found his peace after being kept alone with no food or water tied to a porch in extreme heat with painful infected skin and standing in his feces and urine. Rescuers rushed Pax to Oradell Animal Hospital. They almost forgot how sick he was because his frail body was hidden by the comfy towel and he never stopped kissing them. When they arrived and unwrapped him, he began wiggling again. He was so happy, his tail wagging furiously – all the while the rescuers were in tears as he tipped over again and again from weakness, his skin flaked to the floor and his little heartbeat seemed to shine right through his paper-thin skin. That little heart seems to be what got him through so many long days and even longer nights. Pax will be hospitalized and on IV fluids and antibiotics with 24 hour care for the next several days until he is stabilized. Food will need to be slowly reintroduced to his body. He is getting an immediate bath and skin treatment. Pax is finally at peace, and we can’t wait to give him all of the attention, love and care that he has so desperately been craving. Please make a donation towards Pax care to help us to help him and so many others in desperate need.

Pax Update! ....

Hi Friends-

Three weeks ago today , my life was saved.

On that day, I was too weak to stand for very long or walk. Now I run and play. ...

I was so hungry and afraid. ...now I am spoiled and adored. ..

I was alone a lot....now I have had two great foster families and so many people who love me. ...

I was skinny and tired , now I'm healthy , happy , neutered and full of puppy energy!

It's all thanks to RBARI , my foster families , and all of you friends that love me so much. ❤️

I'm so happy to be alive..Thank you all for caring !

❌⭕️❌⭕️❤️...Pax

It's been a week since Pax was rescued. This sweet puppy has come so far. He is happy and thriving in his foster home , and growing stronger every day!
It's hard to believe that just a week ago, Pax was falling over from weakness and malnutrition- but from day one , his spirit has always been strong.
Thank you all for the outpouring of love and support for this precious puppy ❤️

Pax is back with us at the shelter! He's already gained 2 pounds , and is doing very well. He is the sweetest, most loving puppy. ..and he's getting lots of attention.
Due to his skin issues, Pax must have a medicated bath every two days, and due to his frail body condition ...he must eat many small meals a day.
This very special puppy has won the hearts of everyone who meets him. He's got a long way to go..but his spirit is strong, and he's very loved.
Thank you all for caring ❤️

Awww, how sad. Thank God for the person that alerted someone to rescue Pax. Now he can get the care he needs and extra attention he deserves. The abuser should be treated like garbage.
