An abandoned dog covered in mange and scabies helplessly slept next to a wall outside of a store in South Texas. This sweet dog, named “Buddy” would kindly approach people with his big brown eyes as they went in and out of the store, and would plead for help … but no one stopped. The only friend Buddy had was a white Shepherd dog, Diana, who stayed by his side to provide comfort.

Finally, Lizbeth Pereyra-Bollinger from McAllen, Texas posted a desperate plea on Facebook for someone to please help rescue the dogs. The post quickly garnered attention from animal lovers all over, with funds pouring in for the dogs’ medical care. Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, a volunteer, and foster-based animal rescue group, agreed to help the two dogs. After such agonizing pain, the two dogs were finally going to receive the help they deserved.

No one knows how long Buddy and Diana were left to fend for themselves outside of the store, but given their condition, it had been a while. “There is not an inch of his body that is not infected,” says Rescue Dogs Rock NYC says on their Facebook page about Buddy.

Buddy and Diana were immediately rushed to the emergency room. Both suffer from scabies, mange, infection, dehydration, and malnutrition. 

Not only that but Buddy has also been shot several times with a pellet gun, notes Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. The vet said he didn’t know how Buddy even made it this far.

We are so thankful that finally someone stopped to help these suffering dogs and now they are in the caring hands of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. We will be rooting for their recovery!

What is wrong with our society!!!! How could something like this go unnoticed I have seen so many animal neglect stories on the internet it seems to be a trend anymore, Have we, as a people, become so uncaring that these poor animals have to fend for themselves????? Come\'on people have we lost our sense 0f humanity!!??

Shame on the people in this small Texas town who just went about their business, turning a blind eye to the plight of these 2 sad dogs. This is the stuff you read about happening to animals in similar circumstances in third world countries. Deplorable and despicable.

Just beholding abuse like this only makes me angry at the very same people who are making it seem as if they really care about animals and the abuse they endure not just in America but worldwide. If you folks were genuine, you would made the sacrifice and donate so as to help those who are trying to rescue these abused and neglected animals. Just two weeks before this good deeds published, I begged for financial help in aid of some puppies that lost their
mother due to a car accident and not a single soul gave a dime. Those puppies died for hunger one at a time as I wasn\'t able to feed them by nipple bottles the amount of times they needed to be fed on a daily basis.
Well I am still seeking help so as to establish a animal rescue mission in the Island of Jamaica. of such if there is one person in here who is willing to help, please email: [email protected]

Believe me animals do need help on this Island, as no one cares a damn about them, there is not even a Veterinarian in some Parishes and if there is one, the cost is just too expensive.

I just cant.....I cant. This story just brings me to my knees. How anyone who is human...could just pass this dog by is just BEYOND STRAIGHT EVIL. For God\'s sake..where is the compassion??? Where is the empathy for this dog???!!!! Thank God they are being helped...my heart is blown apart...just blown apart. I hate this evil world sometimes.....thank God for the good people in it.

I know I\'m going to get flamed for this but it was Texas. It kind of goes with the state mentality.

This is America, not some third world country. How could Americans past this baby day in and day out and not help? We are becoming a self-centered, un-caring nation. And yet we condemn other nations. No wonder they laugh at or hypocrisy.

please contribute to the rehabilitation of these two dogs. if and when they are healthy enough i am happy to adopt them, or you can, if you wish to. it sounds as if they would like to be owned together due to their friendship. a southern home would be best since this one pictured is a shorthair, while i live in the north, but i do house my dogs indoors in inclement weather, which includes the entire winter. 231-331-3003
