A adorable puppy who had heat exhaustion was discovered a few days ago in the vicinity of San Antonio, Texas. Five-month-old Bonnie, according to San Antonio Pets Alive, was abused. The animal protection organization claims that “Bo “Nie was discovered outside in the sweltering heat with her mouth taped shut completely. Her mouth and nose are pallid and swollen from poor circulation. Her bald spots are highlighted by the scars and blood left on her scalp by the tape’s strong hold. She was similarly dirty when she was placed in our care.”
“Approximately five months and six pounds of infant cuteness later, a monster took her away. She had no way to hydrate, digest, defecate, bathe, or even breathe normally under those conditions. When you pull back her fur, you’ll see that she’s just skin and bones.”
On Monday, the shelter posted a Facebook update about Bonnie’s health, saying:
“We haven’t decided yet what the optimal treatment plan for her will be. Her heart rate and blood pressure are both normal, yet she still can’t stand. She is learning new things and getting lots of love. That stuffed dinosaur is her favorite toy.”
As of this now, Bonnie is not up for adoption. The agency claims that
“A caring family will be found for her as soon as she is healthy enough to be adopted. There is still a long way to go before she is ready for a permanent family.”
Anyone considering adopting is urged to consider one of the many other homeless animals in need by the group.
“If you adopt or foster, know that you are providing a home for a baby and a kennel for another animal in need. More space is needed immediately so that we can save more valuable lives. In the absence of further space, they are trapped.”
