Saving Patch

Believe it or not, this dog came in with over 500 engorged ticks on him. His loss of blood was so great he needed a blood transfusion. No evidence of injury but he was hypothermic due to blood loss. Almost unresponsive when brought into the shelter. He was in bad shape and almost had no movement.When Rescue The Underdog got him, he had a voracious appetite and thirst. However he is so weak he cannot stand without falling over. He is weak and wobbly but has energy now that he didn't have before. He cannot stand up without falling over but at least he is moving around. He has a strong will to live but he would still need additional treatments.He has a deep bark and we think he will make it but he's gone through extreme hardship and will need some time to recover.Right now he still needs medical care and vet visits. Please donate towards his care. He needs blood transfusions from being infested with ticks and possibly other medications. It’s will be a long recovery for him but with your help, he will get that second chance in life. Please consider donating. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
