Hi everyone! Meet this young pup I saw in our yard. As a big dog lover, it breaks my heart to see a puppy suffering with nowhere to go. I saw him looking for food in our yard while feeding my two dogs, was so hungry and dirty and full of mange.
I know that time that I needed to help this puppy. My parents won't allow me to bring another dog but that doesn't mean I am giving up this poor pup. I just need to prove to them that I can take care of him with proper and sufficient resources and medicines to get him back in shape. What I like about this pup is that he is an easy dog, he approached me immediately and was very excited because again-- he was hungry. I can also see in his eyes that he is very lonely and needed a home. My sister told me that he was taken away by our neighbour from his litter. Our neighbour took care of him for a month and neglected when he started to have mange. He was born in our yard, by the way. (I was not there when he was born because I was in the city working).
I started sharing the story on Facebook group (Dogspotting Society). Got tons of advice including bringing him to a nearby vet, but unfortunately, we do not have a vet or pet store or animal control/organization here in our small town. And besides, I am on a tight budget and cannot afford to buy medicines/maintenance and extra dog food online (lost my job 2 months ago due to the pandemic). A number of people also want to adopt this pup but my location is quite far. I'm in a rural area in the Philippines. What I can only do for now is to bathe and feed him with my dog's dogfood. I actually never thought of making a gogetfunding account for this pup because I still have sufficient food to spare not until one member of the group, Cristy Short who lives in California reached out to help. She wants to give me dog food or cash and then eventually told me to create a gogetfunding account. I realized that it is indeed a great idea since I need medicines and extra dog food for the pup and I will be constructing a dog house for him in our yard so he will be safe.
My dog, Flash really likes him and I want them to grow together and be friends! I cannot wait to make him feel better and secure together with my other dogs and cannot wait to see his fur back. I just need to have the resources so my parents can finally allow me to bring him in. All animals deserve respect and love. All the support from you all would be of great help to this pup. Will always update everyone on the situation through my Facebook account @palonglong25. May God bless us all!
