He is literally a dog that cannot move.
An animal shelter in South Texas turned to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. Not even resembling a dog, he had no hair and his skin was eaten away by shedding and secondary skin diseases, making him look more like a stone statue than a dog. Without urgent medical attention, he would not have survived.
The rescue team felt compelled to intervene. They took the Grinch puppy and their hearts broke. What happened to this puppy to make it so bad? What happened to him? It was heartbreaking, but the only thing that mattered right now was getting him better. They couldn’t even understand what kind of dog the Grinch was. He looked like a stone statue.
The Grinch was taken to a veterinary clinic for treatment. He had to be medicated and bathed every day. Antibiotics were also needed to treat skin infections. The Grinch was also weak. It was time for Grinch to get as well as possible so that he could be placed with an adoptive family.
A month later the dog had recovered. He was well enough to leave the clinic, but he was quite shy and even afraid of other dogs. This is going to be very difficult! But no one gave up on this sweet boy. Now he really looked like a dog!
Isn’t he so cute?
Grinch was placed in foster care with a wonderful family. His new foster mom worked with the Grinch every day. She taught him about toys and everything about a dog. Her true colors came out. Grinch still has a long way to go, but it looks like his foster family has grown to love this brave boy.
Maybe he will become a foster family…?
We’re not sure, but one thing is for sure. The Grinch’s bad days are over! Thank you so much to everyone who helped this deserving pup!
