Lazarus is a beautiful puppy with severe injuries. The good news is he is getting better and wanting to eat, which is a good sign. He was rescued by a neighbor and rushed to Vet Center.
“Many thanks to everyone who has shared this puppy’s story. The Amish dog breeder refused to provide veterinary care. A good Samaritan neighbor quickly became involved and saved the puppy’s life”.
“On Tuesday morning, Renee Martini, founder of Renee’s Rescues received a call from an informant about a puppy allegedly kicked and injured at a Lancaster County, Pennsylvania puppy mill breeder. The Amish dog breeder refused to provide veterinary care. A good Samaritan neighbor quickly became involved and saved the puppy’s life.”
“The surrendered pup presented with serious injuries; the tiny silver Labrador retriever with the ice blue eyes had been bleeding from his nose and was unable to walk. Dubbed Lazarus, the puppy was rushed to the Animal Vet Center in Bear, Delaware, where he is now fighting for his life.”
“Lazarus is in bad shape. There’s decreased detail in the X-ray. He will need an ultrasound next. He has neurological deficiency in his hind end and walking again at this point is 50/50. The first goal is to save his life and then address the needs associated with possibly being paralyzed, such as securing a wheelchair. The next 24 hours will be a roller coaster and we will update as much as we can,” posted Renee on the rescue’s Facebook page.”
“The good news is that Lazarus was hungry, and ate all of his dog food. Hopefully his story will end better than it began, but now this little guy has garnered a lot of attention and everyone is wishing him a speedy recovery. Had it not been for the informant and good Samaritan, Lazarus would have died alone and in pain. End the misery of puppy mills; don’t purchase any dogs from pet shops and encourage friends, family and social media associates to “adopt” their next best friend.”
“We will be awarding this month’s informant with an “Animal Hero” plaque, as she is saving the life of little Lazarus,” Renee wrote.”
