Someone Threw This Puppy in the Trash – But Look at Him Now!

Patrick was just a puppy when he was found, starved and barely clinging to life, wrapped in a garbage bag at the bottom of a trash chute. If he had not been found and rescued, he would surely have died having never known true love and happiness.

Luckily, for Patrick – and everyone that’s played a role in his miraculous transformation, whose lives are forever changed by his tenacity, his ability to forgive, and his capacity to love – he was found before it was too late.

Just scroll to see his story.

    Thank goodness he got the love, attention and support that he needed. I can’t believe someone could be that cruel and heartless. I hope they don’t have any kids…..just saying.

  2. What a horrible thing to do to a helpless animal. Thank goodness for good samaritans! On top of all the other injustices, it looks like Patrick had a nasty case of mange. The drugs that treat that can cause other problems that can interfere with immunity and long-term recovery. He’s been through enough; if it’s still a problem we’d be happy to help with some all natural mange cure product.

    Patrick is a small percentage of the ones that are found and saved. How many actually are not found and die this way. Thank goodness someone cared and got Patrick to the help he needed. Please keep your eyes and ears open to the other Patricks or Patricias. They are out there asking for your help. These people who are cruel are your neighbors and/or family members.

    • Sorry to hear that, but your right so much evil towards our 4legged family that sometimes I cant even speak! If I could just have afew minutes with one of them I know I would feel better!

    The owner pleaded guilty and got probation and a fine. That’s it. She can still have animals!

  9. I hope Patrick’s story attracted enough media attention , and that the monster who did this was reminded of what he did!! When I saw the first set of photos, I thought Patrick was an emaciated chocolate Labrador retriever….I was shocked when the picture a fully recuperated pitbull! They really did a wonderful turning him around!God bless the men and women if our country that sacrifice every inch of themselves……emotionally , physically , and financially!! 🙂
