Claude’s furry friend had been mistreated for a long time, leaving him battered and alone on the streets of Chicago’s South Side. Luckily, a kind-hearted Lyft driver stumbled upon the poor pup and offered to help. The dog was in a terrible state with visible injuries such as limping, multiple bite marks, and shaved fur on his back. The driver approached the dog cautiously, extending a gentle touch.
In a composed manner, she lifted the injured person and brought him to her car. She canceled her plans for the evening and decided to take care of his wounds by putting on bandages. Unfortunately, when she tried to contact rescue teams and veterinary clinics the next day, it was during a holiday weekend and she couldn’t get in touch with anyone until Tuesday.
Despite offering to take care of Claude while he recovered, finding a shelter that could provide him with the necessary medical attention proved to be quite a challenge. Unfortunately, most shelters were either unwilling or unable to help unless they euthanized him. This caused her to become emotional and cry, but thankfully, one shelter was able to provide her with antibiotics for Claude’s treatment. However, it was not enough, and soon his head and face began to swell, and he lost his appetite.
Eventually, someone connected her with Wright-Way Rescue, and we quickly brought in the dog. He had multiple bite wounds and was suffering from severe infection and dehydration. The medical team performed surgery on him and gave him over fifty stitches, even inside his mouth where his gums were punctured. Despite making progress at a slow pace, he is still in an unstable condition.
Our veterinary team is keeping a close eye on Claude’s progress by giving him frequent treatments and feeding him through syringes due to his lack of appetite. We are committed to doing everything possible to provide him with a fresh start in life. The good news is that Claude is thriving! We are relieved that he is healthy, content, and enthusiastic about life. We are grateful for the outpouring of love and support we have received. These days, Claude is a strong, energetic boy who loves to play all the time.
