The good folks at Hope For Paws are no stranger to the issues that befall animals that are forced to live on the street. When they received a recent call about a dog that was stranded at the United States-Mexico border, they knew that they had to spring into action right away. The dog was in need of immediate medical care and would perish without help.
The rescuers made their way to the border to see what they could do to help the dog. The man who contacted them let them know that the dog had taken quite a liking to his pups. While the man would do everything in his power to make sure that the dog was fed, the animal was in need of more assistance. The rescuers used food to coax him into their vehicle.
The dog was even given a brand new by the rescuers. He is now known as Pax and Pax was certainly grateful for the assistance that he received. He did not put up a fight as he was taken to the car. It was as if he knew that help had finally arrived. He instinctively knew that these people were on hand to help him. Pax was immediately taken to the local animal hospital.
He had a wide range of ailments that needed to be treated. The poor pup was suffering from a litany of issues. The technicians set about the task of treating his open wounds, mange and infections. The infections had spread to the skin, ears and eyes, causing him a great deal of discomfort. The dog was fully cooperative during the treatment process.
Pax was given a medicated bath, which made his skin feel much better. It had been so long since anyone had taken the time to help him like this. Hope For Paws did everything in their power to assist him and from there, The Forgotten Dog Foundation took the baton. His wounds are now fully healed and he has been situated in the perfect forever home.
