If there was a dog who needed a home…a forever home at that….and said dog had special needs in terms of his rear legs but not in terms of his spirit and zest for life, would you help him? One of the most amazing dogs I have ever met in my entire life (other than my own, of course), is Baby Joey.
Despite the horror inflicted on his life as a puppy, he lets nothing slow him down. Baby Joey is a survivor. Baby Joey was found as a puppy with nearly both of his rear paws chopped off: By an unspeakable monster. Instead of focusing on his nightmare past, Fidose of Reality is taking the lead from this pistol of a pooch: Forge ahead and don’t let the bad guys win!
Thanks to the kind folks at Merrick Pet Care, Baby Joey is having the best life ever. Baby Joey received immediate medical treatment, and the rescue team at NYC Second Chance Rescue posted his photos and backstory online. Joey is forming and developing at this time in a way that is posturally incorrect, so he was recently fitted with prosthetic custom limbs. Our friends at Merrick are helping with his rehab!
Baby Joey is thriving on his Merrick food, as you can see in this video:
He also gets rehab at Water 4 Dogs and is quite the “fish” when it comes to his doggie paddle! Go, Joey, go!
Sadly, his forever home situation fell through, and that’s where you come in. Baby Joey is a rock star, and he deserves to have a forever home where someone can love him, care for him, and give him the TLC he deserves.

Medical Case of the Week
Toby was found earlier this week by the folks at NYC Second Chance Rescue when someone threw him from a SUV traveling at a high-speed, in this white garbage bag, as you see in the photo. (no graphic photos).
A woman who was driving the opposite direction saw the bag flop to the side of the road, and realized a head was sticking out. How a person could ever do such a evil thing to a small innocent creature is incomprehensible. Toby is in critical condition, and his temp is low and he can not stand up or move. Please help us to help Toby, donations are needed for his vet care go to www.nycsecondchancerescue.org/
Please say a prayer for this little guy, we are so worried about him. The authorities have been contacted and we pray someone has gotten the plate number of the SUV. We will keep you all updated.
