Moo, a little puppy from Central Vietnam, was found tied outside in the scorching sun when he was just 4 months old. The poor pup had painful sores all over his body and was suffering from a severe case of mange that left him with no fur, swollen and constantly itchy. His condition was so bad that he ended up losing his eyesight as his eyes swelled shut.
Moo was tied to a pole simply because his owner didn’t like his appearance. This kind of attitude is common in Southeast Asia where medical care and responsible pet ownership are not given much importance. Fortunately, a Vietnamese girl noticed Moo’s distress and informed our outreach team, rescuing the poor dog from the scorching heat.
Moo’s recuperation is going to take some time, but he has made impressive strides in just a fortnight. He will need regular medical attention, such as medicated baths, anti-mite treatments, and antibiotics for his skin issues – not to mention an abundance of affection. Despite his suffering, Moo has expressed his love with affectionate licks and tail wags.
After his recovery, we’ll search for the perfect forever home for him. Your contribution will aid in covering his medical expenses for his eyes and skin, as well as providing Moo and other dogs with sustenance and housing throughout their recuperation.
As of July 23, 2019, there is good news about the once-sickly puppy. The treatments he received have worked wonders, and he now looks like a completely different dog. His fur has grown back and his lively spirit has returned! Moo is becoming more and more playful with each passing day, and it is hopeful that he will soon be adopted by a caring forever family.
Update as of May 2021: Moo has made a full recovery from his traumatic experience and has found a loving forever home. His new family adores him and he is now living his best life, full of happiness and good health. He will never have to endure the pain and neglect of his past ever again.
