Dog recovering after spending days 'cemented' to Florida sidewalk
TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – A sweet pup is recovering after enduring cruel conditions on a Florida sidewalk.
Tri-County Humane shared on Facebook that the dog was found “cemented” to a sidewalk off Yamato Road in Boca Raton, Florida, for what seemed like days.
The organization said the dog, Trooper, was “completely stuck” and “left to die.”
“The smell was unbearable. There was no way a dog could have ended up like this overnight,” Tri-County Humane shared.
After hours of grooming and shampooing, Trooper was beginning to look like himself once again, but the medical conditions he suffered were a lot for such a little dog.
Tri-County Humane stated that maggots could be seen crawling from Trooper’s fur. His nails were overgrown and had “terrible” dental decay.
According to the animal rescue, after running several tests, Trooper was diagnosed with 22 medical conditions. Of the 22 conditions, the most severe were:
- Heart Murmur
- Corneal Ulcers
- Enlarged Prostate
- Severe Periodontal Disease
- Ear Infections
Trooper’s medical care has already reached $2,500, “but our real need is to get him to a specialist to see if we can get him to walk,” Tri-County wrote.
Anyone wanting to donate to help with Trooper’s medical expenses can do so here.
