Our newest Warrior, meet Paulie

He has a long healing journey ahead, but he's getting the very best medical care

Remember Warrior Dogs Marco, Marshall Tucker, and Dante? They came to us with such severe infections in their face from different types of injuries. Paulie now sadly joins their club.

The moment we pulled up on the street, we could see a skinny body with a head much too big. We could see the infection from the street. This poor dog wound up on a kind woman's front porch and passed out from pure exhaustion. 

She did not look the other way or shoo him off of her property. Instead, she was worried sick and called us. We arrived on the scene and were greeted with a kind tail wag. Although he was in such great pain, it didn't stop him from welcoming us with an open heart and giving us all of his trust. The infection smelled horribly and we knew he needed to get to the doctor right away.

On his freedom ride, he tried to climb up in our laps and looked at us shocked when we gave him a kiss on the cheek. He looked at us and then COVERED us in smooches. It was an emotional moment, because it was as if he couldn't believe the love he was getting and so eager to give back.

Our amazing team was ready with pain meds the moment we walked in the door at Stray Rescue. They too were instantly smitten with this cute little pup who needed help so badly. But soon he was sedated so Dr. Schulz could begin cleaning his wounds and seeing the severity of it. There was so much necrotic tissue. This guy will have a long healing journey as the wound is just so large. But with an attitude like his, we know he will make it through this.

Please pray for our Paulie and give toward his care. We see the worst of the worst but we give them the very best. And that is because of you. 


We also added a few things to our wishlist for Paulie, if you can help.
