World is better with Abner in it!

After a week at the vet, Abner was starting to eat a little and could stand for short periods of time, so he came back to the Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue. While he is still very fragile, he is able to eat more now, and exercises to gain a little strength daily. He is very food motivated at this time and eagerly awaits each meal. He is staring to show interest in living and responds to kindness.

You can see that his head is disproportionately large and his body is stunted from the lack of nourishment as a growing puppy. We believe he is only 7-9 months old.

Abner has a  serious cut on his back and several wounds on other parts of his body. The wound on his rear leg is the most serious at this time and he cannot put pressure on the leg. X-rays did not reveal a broken bone, but a new X ray will be taken soon. We will worry more about the leg after we think he is strong enough.

Helping animals like Abner is our mission at Red Lake Rosie's Rescue. We want to make up for all the misery he has had in his life short life and ultimately find him a loving home where he will know no further suffering. For now, Abner is happy to know that he is safe, loved, and, most of all, gets fed his meals.

Thank you for your generous donations to RLRR help animals such as Abner with good quality food and funds for medical care. Without the help of Aris, the rescuer, and these funds, Abner would have had no hope. He would have simply died and would be unknown. The world is so much better with Abner in it!!
