    The humane society that has Patrick - the American Pitbull/Pit X that was starved nearly to death and dumped down a garbage shoot have been posting updates on his condition

    he is doing amazingly well considering! and he's looking better every day

    I have emailed them to ask permission to share his pics here - but until I get a reply here is his link

    Patrick's Updates

    poor baby -I have been promoting the wonderful work this rescue have been doing everywhere I can - almost *every* rescue I know would have probably euthanised him in his condition due to time and nursing constraints - hopefully with TLC Patrick will become the best and most cherished boy in his city.

    Look at those *eyes* aaawh

    Unbelievable how that little chap is still alive considering his condition- really remarkable, he has such a beautiful little face. How someone can do that to an animal....

    I really hope Patrick gets better and finds a good home soon.
    And I hope that those who did that to him will feel the full force of the law.
    Karma has a way of catching up.

    looking at all the stories on there are heartnreaking :( Hope they all get well soon and find forever homes
     
  7. I so hope they catch the barstools who did this! $2000 reward or no $2000reward! I'd shop em for a shilling myself! then I'd donate it!
    Things like this re confirm that I am right preferring animals to humans!

    Oh my good God! Who on earth could do this to a dog? :(

    How Patrick have even survived this long is a miracle and the devotion of the staff is beyond belief. Bless him and I hope he continues to go from stregnth to stregnth. Those rescuers need a medal, they really do.

    Is it any wonder some of us prefer animals to people but then the people who are looking after him are wonderful. ;)

    OMG, that poor dog, I'm in tears.

    What wonderful people they are to think there was no way he'd make it and still giving him everything just so he could pass knowing there are good people in the world. I hope he makes it and goes on to live the happy life he deserves.

    Patrick's latest update!

    he's looking sooo much more alert/aware, he's got life back in his eyes and is becoming a lil character

    from his update pages:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    he's not going to be updated daily... his journey is going to be months, not weeks and certainly not days

    he's been on major news networks, has a facebook page and here is a video one media outlet made of him

    Dog found in trash bag and near death is making a recovery - Video | NJ.com

    and one from the shelter
    YouTube - Patrick - Road to Recovery as of March 21, 2011

    the strength and spirit of this lil guy has me in tears - if only I could be as strong as he is!

    God bless him, those pictures are enough tomake anyone gasp. Goodness knows what those beautiful eyes have witnessed and what that body has been made to suffer but he has pulled himself through and he deseves every bit of love he gets now.
