Dog Found in Trash Bag Outside Shelter

April Livingston | August 1st, 2018

The Unleashed Pet Rescue and Adoption in Mission, Kansas is a very busy place. So, things were just business as usual on a recent Thursday morning. That is, until a member of the staff happened to glance out into the parking lot. It was there that they found an emaciated looking boxer lying in a bag full of garbage outside. They weren’t even sure if she was alive, and a distraught member of the staff went running in an effort to try to help or save the dog. So, there was the dog in the bag of trash and then they spotted a second boxer, tied to a pole and having troubling using his back legs or even standing up. Staff members rushed both dogs to their animal hospital for help, and named the male Triumph and the female Hope.

Both dogs were in terrible shape and needed help—and they needed it quickly. Both dogs were very emaciated, and Hope had an elbow infection and basses on her adrenal glands and brain. Triumph had atrophy in his rear legs, which they believe is from him being in a cage for extended periods of time. No one knew where the dogs came from, but were eager to help them in any way they could. Hope underwent surgery successfully in order to help with her infection and Triumph was transferred to a foster home so he could start physical therapy to help to build strength in his rear legs.

It’s not clear what happened to Hope and Triumph before they were discovered, but the good news is that their past is behind them now. The staff says Triumph is going to need lots of TLC in order to get him healthy again, but he’s in good hands in his foster home and with therapy. Hope, on the other hand, has a longer road ahead of her as she works to regain strength and even learn to eat on her own again.
