This lovable pup has had a tough time and is still searching for a permanent residence! Are you aware of someone who could provide him with a home?
It is heartbreaking to learn that Stevie, a canine companion who has been around for eight years, was found confined with another dog. It is highly likely that these two poor dogs had been chained up for most, if not all, of their lives. Fortunately, the Lancaster SPCA rescued the pup and provided care before ultimately transferring him to Diamonds in the Ruff in New York.
Each year, numerous animals find new homes through the efforts of organizations such as Diamonds in the Ruff. An estimated 3.2 million animals are adopted from shelters across the United States annually. One of these rescued animals is Stevie, who had to overcome challenges such as bald patches, fleas, and heartworms in addition to being completely blind.
Upon further examination, it was discovered that the little pooch was experiencing some gastrointestinal issues. It was determined that medical intervention was not only necessary, but also time-sensitive. As it turns out, a corn cob had caused an obstruction in Stevie’s intestines, making surgery a pressing matter.
Because of these challenges, Stevie’s foster family had to be patient and supportive during his transition to a new environment. As he slowly recuperated and grew accustomed to his new surroundings, the dog’s genuine character gradually emerged.
Stevie, a charming dog, requires someone to drive him to his appointments due to his heartworms. If you’re interested in adopting him and live in the Lockport, New York area, you may apply through the Ruff Diamond website. Don’t forget to share this information with your family and friends.
