Shot, and Left for Dead at the Shelter

Shot, and Left for Dead at the Shelter

Wow, this week has been a really rough week for us here at CBHR! We learned of Diesel and Lyle; both boys are examples of abuse and neglect, and our hearts are just breaking.

Diesel was taken to the shelter to be euthanized after being shot with BBs. Not only was Diesel injured from being shot, but he was also struggling with two infected cherry eyes (as you can see in his picture). The shelter staff said he was just too sweet, and they had to try to help him. The shelter KNEW this boy deserved a chance at a better life, and the shelter reached out to CBHR. You know our first reaction was to jump in and help this boy! And if our hearts weren’t breaking enough over Diesel we learned of Lyle.

Lyle was seized, along with 19 other dogs, as a neglect case in southeastern NC. The shelter reported that it looks like Lyle may have been neglected for a long time, but despite so much neglect and being a little scared, he is a charming and sweet boy. As of now, we are not sure what all his medical needs will be, as he will just be arriving in our program this weekend. We do know that he deserves a chance to know a life that is not neglectful, and we are going to do everything we can to make that happen!

We are happy to report that both boys have been pulled and are currently at vet offices awaiting surgery. In a few days they will be headed to their foster homes.

Please help with their medical expenses and those of the other hounds sure to come in the next few weeks with a donation. Thank you for all you continue to do for the basset hounds of Carolina Basset Hound Rescue!
