GRAPHIC IMAGES: Hutch, in a critical condition due to neglect
A lifeline for Hutch
Since our inception most of our work has been to provide assistance to rescuers that for one reason or another found themselves with far more than they could handle.
Hutch has been rescued in Spain. He is a podenco, one of the most abused and neglected breeds in the world. Dogs of his breed are used for hunting and usually discarded at the end of the season, sometimes dumped, others tortured to death. You all remember Queen’s case. Hutch belongs to this very special breed.
He’s just a puppy, can’t be more than five months old, as sweet as honey. A couple of days ago his rescuer wrote to us desperately asking for help. His condition was critical. His intestines were full of parasites that had evolved into cysts and this had created a blockage of sorts. For reasons we don’t really know he was operated in a village, which left him in an even more weakened state.
Hutch has arrived to us in a critical condition approaching systemic failure. His kidneys don’t seem to be working correctly, he barely has enough energy to hold his head upright. He’s receiving Fluid therapy while we conduct some vital tests that will lead us to the cause of his condition.
We can’t elaborate more, because right now we don’t know what is Hutch precise condition, right now we are focusing on stabilizing him and keep him alive. He’s extremely weak and unless we do something NOW we may loose him.
Please, follow this post… we are going to be updating it regularly with Hutch’s condition. He’s just a baby, his life has just begun… Please help us save his life… he deserves so much more. He deserves a family, he deserves to know that there is more to life than just suffering.
Update November 6
Since Sunday we are placing all our efforts in saving the life of this little guy. His blood levels are monitored constantly, and so is the performance of his kidneys.
P.S. His condition is critical right now, but with the right treatment we can save him. If he makes it he will need a home, for life. Should you wish to adopt him please write to me telling me everything about you and your family: firstname.lastname@example.org
Update 11 November
HUTCH LIFE HAS BEEN SAVED…
This is what greeted me this afternoon when I went to the clinic to check up on our little guy…
Please help us continue with Hutch’s treatment. His life has been saved but he now has a kidney condition that we will have to keep under surveillance.
He’s just a puppy… Hutch. Help us save him….
