Jeremy is a little Pit Bull puppy, but he does not look like a puppy should at all – instead, he is the image of sadness and the terrible neglect. He was brought into the South Carolina Shelter as a stray and his condition was terrible – he could not stand nor walk. It was immediately arranged for the puppy to be sent to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC’s emergency veterinarian hospital.

At the clinic, Jeremy got a central line, was given albumin, and blood transfusions along with dextrose. His blood cell count was extremely low, as well as his body temperature. His skin was so damaged from the mange and dehydration that it was almost impossible to insert a catheter. He was – and still is – fighting for his life.

“Our hearts are breaking for Jeremy,” said Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC.  “He looks like he is made of stone with those sad eyes peering out begging for help.”


Jeremy managed to survive the night, but his condition remained grave. The team found out that he had a brother at the same shelter – who was also suffering from mange but, overall, in a much better shape. They arranged for the pups to be reunited, hoping this would give Jeremy the perk up he so needed…


When Joshua, Jeremy’s brother, arrived at the office, he rushed right to see the other dog. Their sweet meeting brought everyone to tears, as Joshua softly nuzzled his sick brother and comforted him as much as he could.


“…even though Jeremy remains pretty out of it, we hope he found comfort in knowing he is not alone,” the Rescue Dogs Rock NYC team wrote on their Facebook page.




Jeremy is still on an IV, heat, and a feeding tube. He keeps on fighting – and is going to have a wonderful life if only he has the strength to carry on and get through this terribly trying time. We all have our fingers crossed for this beautiful sweet little pup.

Pit bulls have nothing to do with you people are so ingorant. its how their raised I was attacked by a mutt as a child and it was no part a pit bull its amaizing to me how stupid people are I have 4 pit bulls and they have never tried to attack anyone any dog can be a pit bull no matter what kind they are

These arent pits. Plus pits just like other dogs are sweet if brought up right. Lefty your facts are incorrect. If you look at countries like asutralia pits are just like labs over there, very mainstream. If you have instagram you need to check out "Rufus and Kilo" "the_blueboys". Still does not give the right for humans to be cruel.

I don\'t hate Pit Bulls, they can be very sweet...until they kill or maim someone. I despise their owners who ignore this fact. The statistics are there: Pit Bulls make up 6% of the U.S. dog population but are responsible for 60% of the human deaths caused by dogs. Google it if you don\'t believe me. Why own a dog with that potential when there are so many sweet breeds that don\'t pose that risk? Any dog of any breed will attack under the right (or wrong) circumstance. Pits are certainly no better. I\'ve been bitten by a Yorkie, a Cocker, and a Collie mix during my 74 years as a human and dog lover. But I didn\'t loose a limb or suffer a serious injury from any of them.

However, these dogs, if siblings, are NOT Pits.

Those dogs definitely are not pit bulls. Do some basic fact checking before posting an article, even if it is just on the internet.

How can you hate an entire breed? That is like saying you hate all people with blue eyes or hate all truck drivers. It just doesn\'t have any logic behind it. All animals are deserving of compassion and respect. The level cruelty and abuse that so many innocent creatures have to endure is mind boggling. Please open your heart, do a bit of research, and I think you will change your mind.
