It’s heartbreaking to see such young dogs like Sophia only know sadness and pain since coming into the world. At seven months old, this precious girl has endured one of the worst cases of mange. Her skin is covered in scabs, wounds, and blood.
She was surrendered because her guardians couldn’t afford to treat her, we just wish they had gotten help before it got to this point. Sophia is in so much pain and is currently waiting to be released to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC from the shelter. According to the notes left by Sophia’s owners, she is a pointer mix and is good with people including children.
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC will be taking Sophia after her release. She will finally be safe, loved, and taken care of. We can’t wait to follow her recovery and see her as a happy and healthy pup like they all deserve to be.
Please remember that adopting a dog is a serious commitment. Pets should be treated with the same love, respect, and care as any other member of the family. When a dog is abandoned, whether on the streets or at a shelter, it affects not only that dog in ways you can’t imagine, but also other dogs awaiting a home and even the shelter workers and rescues themselves- emotionally and financially.
