Patrick And What Love Can Do…

I don’t like to post horror stories but sometimes a horror story can turn into a fairytale… and that is what this is… the original post can be found linked below but I pasted the article here for convenience… it is hard to look at the pictures and I am blown away that anyone could see life in this sweet boy… thankfully they did and the story is amazing… I get choked up even thinking about it…

When Patrick was found, he was emaciated and abandoned. His cruel owner starved him until he was nearly dead, threw him down a garbage chute that was 22 stories high and left him for dead. A maintenance worker found the poor puppy before he was put into the trash compactor, cold and almost dead.

The City of Newark Animal Control was contacted and ACO Arthur Skinner picked up the dog and brought him directly to the Humane Society. This was his amazing transformation:

He was given a blood transfusion, a bath and 24 hour emergency care for the longest time. He was named Patrick after St. Patrick; his rescuers thought he was lucky. He should have been dead, but he grew into a happy and healthy dog.
