Abandoned Shih Tzu found in a terrible state

08 Sep 2016 | by Deepshikha Tahiliani | Posted in: Wag News

Some people need to understand their responsibility. If you are adopting or buying a pet, you need to take care of them. a sad situation was seen recently in New Hampshire when tenants not only left the house without a notice but also left their little Shih Tzu behind. The condition of the dog was so bad that he wasn’t even recognisable that it was a dog. He was ruthlessly neglected and had matted fur, which made it very difficult for him to walk.

The little Shih Tzu would be approximately 3-years old. The worst part was when it was recognized that it was also deaf and blind. He was bumping into things and ate whatever came into his way. The Londonderry Police Department rescued the pup. Chris Olson from Londonderry Police Department stated that, “I don't believe that the dog was abandoned for more than a few weeks. By all accounts, the dog is very gentle and affectionate with humans. There are no signs of physical abuse to the dog. It appears all of the ailments came from extensive neglect.”

The pooch was immediately taken to the vet and treated with the required treatment. The skin was infected and he was also anaemic. The matted fur was shaved off and he was nourished. The owners of the dog, Jada Demas and Jennifer Moscardini were later arrested under the charge of numerous animal abuse acts.

Olson also mentioned that “Neighbours who heard the two women speak of the dog knew him to be named 'Puppy’.” Currently, the pooch is being fostered and is going through the medical treatment.

It is still unknown when he will be up for adoption but if you wish to adopt the little Shih Tzu, you can contact the Londonderry Police Department’s Facebook page.
