Bentley
« on: April 21, 2011, 01:54:50 PM »
I wanted to share a very sad story with you...his name is Bentley and he is just 4 months old and was dumped in an abandoned creek bed in SC because he has demodex mange...about the worst I have ever seen. I will not post his pictures here as it is just too graphic and heartbreaking. I will post the link to the pictures if you wish to see them, but will not force anyone to look. He is just a baby and his legs are swollen twice their normal size and he keeps them tucked under him as though he is trying to shield them. He is in a great deal of pain but is now in the care of Four Seasons Boxer Rescue and was treated by our vet this morning. He has a long road ahead of him but Four Seasons is vowing to not give up on this precious little guy. If any one wants to make a donation towards his medical care you can do so at the Four Seasons Rescue site..if you can't donate, we understand and just ask that you pray for Bentley and keeps him in your hearts.

I saw his story on FB and it made me tear up. How can anyone do that to that sweet baby?  :bigcry:  Sending all the healing vibes I have for him. Hopefully he will only know love from this point on.

Man, what a day...Four Seasons has now received a call from a vet begging us to take 7 newborn Boxer babies that were dumped on their doorstep in a basket.  They estimate they are about 3 days old.  There were 10 all together and a vet tech was caring for one and the other two were already dead in the basket....so we are scrambling to find foster homes to bottle feed newborn babies.... :bigcry:

Oh Deb I wish I was closer, I would help with those poor little babies! How can people be so heartless...makes me sad to think of what happened to the mother of those babies.  :bigcry:

The owner actually brought them to the vet ...apparently the story is that the mother had an infection and was unable to nurse them so they just left the babies.  As I said two were dead and the others are severly dehydrated..gosh I hope they make it.  :bigcry:

Oh Thank You all sooooo much!!  I just spoke with Briana and Bentley has been taken in by a great foster Mom who is prepared for the challenge of helping him face the painful days ahead.  The babies have been picked up and taken to a vet tech volunteer who will keep them over the Easter weekend til more foster homes can be secured...they aren t doing the greatest and I fear we may lose some...so staying with the vet tech is a huge huge necessity for this weekend. I will keep you all posted.   :bigcry:
