Unwanted Dog Abandoned at “Farm”

April Livingston | November 28th, 2018

A little Maltese mix named Camo was absolutely terrified when he went home with a woman named Sally Markley and her husband. He was scared, skittish, and scared of loud noises and anything new. After all he had been through, that was no surprise. Camo the dog was originally dumped at a dog farm in South Korea and was in line to be slaughtered for his meat. As the dog waited his turn to die, he spent hours in a dirty cage with no food or water. His fur was matted with feces and he was cowering in terror in the back of the cage. All of that changed in 2017 when 55 dogs, including Camo, were rescued from the meat farm. The owner of the farm had slaughtered dogs for 20 years but knew he needed to stop the terrible practice, so he contacted the Humane Society International (HSI).

Camo was growling at his rescuers when they removed him from his cage, but he slowly began to warm up to the humans when he realized they were there to help. Adam Parascandola, who is the senior director for animal protection and crisis response for HIS, said Camo really acted like he wanted to trust him. After his rescue, Camo was transported to the United States and was brought into the care of Roff Rescue in Pennsylvania. He was then transferred to a foster home, and his new foster mom was a dog groomer. She was able to remove all the dirty, matted fur from Camo’s body. Underneath, he was emaciated and very underweight.

When he arrived at Sally’ Markley’s home, his forever home, he was working growing back his fur and gaining his trust in humans. He healed with time and now has a brother named Kasey who was also adopted from Roff Rescue. The two are inseparable, and Camo just loves to snuggle with his new family every chance he gets.
