On Wednesday 13th December a small team of volunteers from Sadie’s Stray Dog Rescue arrived at their shelter in Bacau, Romania, to find a very poorly puppy, Skittles, abandoned outside.

Laura Myatt, one of the volunteer rescuers, commented, “Unfortunately, it is very common for us to find puppies dumped outside, however, Skittles is in a particularly bad state.

“He is covered in mange and is severely underweight. Someone out there has treated him very badly, but we are going to do everything in our power to get him well again and show him that not everyone will be so cruel.”

Laura concludes, “He is already showing good progress in just a short time and is sleeping and eating well so we are very hopeful. In fact, Captain, who we found in a similar condition has just this month gone to his forever home in the U.K. and is totally happy and healthy – now it’s Skittles turn and we won’t stop until he is better.”
