Dragged behind a scooter at 1 month old.

It sickens me to have to write a story like this. Last night i recieved a call to come and help a puppy. I went and found this tiny little white body curled up in a box. He had diarreah and was malnurished. Did not respond to me or food at all. Due to the language barrier i was not able to get his full story. Not until i picked him up this morning to got to the vet.

Yesterday 4 "university age" boys decided to tie him to the back of their scooter and ride. As they did this they other 3 ran behind and kicked him. Not for long, thank goodness. My "animal-rescue-helper" ran out and stoped it. She took the puppy somewhere safe and thats when she called me.

I took him to the vet and did numerous tests forinfectious diseases and thankfully he is negative for all. He has no external wounds except 100's of tick bites and a small sore on his nose. The vet put on an IV with fluids, vitamins, something for diarreah, ticks and all allround "make you better" cocktail. Within minutes he yelped.

His back legs, due to the dragging, are both sprained. Not broken. And we discovered that one food has 6 toes ;o)

It was the first time he made any sound or movement so that was a good sign. He wanted to bite the drip in his arm.

He was put in an oxygen incubator and to my delight looked like he was going to survive. On our arrival the vet said his soul was broken, when i left he said he will fix it.

I have been rescuing for almost 5 years now, run my own TNR program and have 7 of my own rescued cats and this is the first time i have to ask for donations. Todays little endevour cost 162,100. He will stay at the vet for atleast 4 more days at 100,000+- a day. So totalling 562,100. Please ask for reciepts if you would like to see.

I know most ARK followers have their own expenses with rescues etc but if you have anything you can spare we will both really appreciate it.

This poor baby was never meant to experience this at such a young age (or ever) so i need to do what best to make him ok again. Once home and settles he will need to go to a foster home or forever home.

I dont have any pics of him at the moment, all i can do is describe him. He is less than 1kg, white. Looks like a Chiwawa. Is a small breed. Vet says he is not a typical street dog. Ill post apic as soon as i see him again.

Good News. He did well through the night. The vet said he has a slight appetite this morning. He also said that he will only charge me 70,000 pd. He has to run more tests today and has a physio helping him with his back legs. This means we still only need to raise 342,100 KRW. Any amount, big or small will be GREATLY appreciated.

Hello friends. I am all finished at the vet. I have been discharged because ate all the yummy food they game me. I have yukky meds for a week but am on the way recovery. I had a xray yesterdayand they found my intestines were full of stones. I must have been very hungry to eat stones. My legs are feeling better but i have low muscle tone so my leggies are going to be something that needs to be watched. In a few days ill be ready to go to my forever home. Thanks for thinking of me and especially those who helped pay my bills.

My mommy will check tomorrow how much money has been donated and give you an update.

I sent 100,000 won. ^^ I'm not sure if that's the one you're talking about

Barry and I have donated 200,000 not 100,000 because he will need more vet treatment before he gets better.
Thanks for looking after him.
