Meet Duke, the depressed dog who was discovered sitting on a south Texas curbside in an old armchair, waiting for someone to come and rescue him.For a few days, people ignored the homeless dog until one woman posted a picture of him on Facebook and asked for help.
“Can anyone assist me?”” the person stated on Facebook.”He’d been hanging around here for a while, according to my mother.”He has such bad mange that he appears to be bloodied.He’s also quite thin, according to xaga-info.”
Leslie Ysuhuaylas, a Rescue Dogs Rock NYC volunteer from Texas, saw the post and stepped in, immediately dispatching a volunteer to pick up the dog.Ysuhuaylas told The Dodo, “He was terrified, and he didn’t trust anyone.””He was circumspect.”
The rescuer rushed Duke to the vet clinic as soon as he was loaded into the car, where they discovered his teeth had been filed down.This suggests he was a bait dog, a dog cruelly used as a “practice target” in dog fights.
We can only imagine what Duke has been through, but his future looks bright now that he’s in good hands.Once his treatments at the vet clinic are finished, the dog will be ready for adoption.Best wishes, sweetie!
