Someone found the poor 5-month-old white pit bull near the was brought to the Angell Animal Medical Center, according to officials. The puppy was diagnosed with Parvovirus and has been receiving intravenous fluids. The highly contagious virus can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid dehydration.

“The puppy — now named’ P.J.,” said the director of Adoption Centers and Programs at the MSPCA Mike Keiley, “is doing much better.”

P.J. was found inside a pet crate and was wearing blue, gray, and yellow colors made by FuzzYard.

The pup is finally in loving care and on the road to recovery. He could be available for adoption in a week or two. P.J.’s veterinary bills are likely to exceed $3,000, and the MSPCA is asking for donations to help pay for the cost of treatment.
