Dehydrated puppy waits to be rescued at busy shelter

A young dehydrated puppy waits to be rescued at a busy Harris County Animal shelter. The 17 lb. Daschund/Chihuahua mix, named Phillip is three years old and was recently adopted from the shelter but was found on the streets dragging his leash.

Little Phillip now needs a foster family.


The volunteer-run Facebook page, Urgent Shelter Pets Houston, writes:

Phillip was one of the King brothers who left the shelter with an adopter not long ago. Poor baby is in the medical room at Harris County.  He does have a microchip and was brought in by his finder on 3/7 after being found on 3/5. So how did he end up no the streets again dragging his leash and dehydrated?   We aren’t sure but know you will help us find a solution for King Phillip AGAIN! He is a little 17 pound Dachshund/Chihuahua, who is Heartworm positive. He will need to be treated to live a happy and healthy life, but there are low-cost ttreatment clinics available. Please help get the word out!

This pup isn’t the only dog that’s at risk.. There are so many unwanted pets that the shelter simply can’t keep up. They are good people trying their best to find animals’ homes but unless the community steps up, there is no other choice. This is a reminder to have your pets spayed or neutered. Foster unwanted animals and donate your time and money to help keep shelters operational.
