I Am Dudley
In the darkest hours of a freezing night, temperature dipping into the low 30's, the dark side of humanity reared its ugly head. The cruelty of these humans was what caused them to do their dirty work in the dark of night. Their shamelessness of dropping a box off at the Montgomery County Animal Shelter was just part of their heartless acts. They stuffed an extremely large dog into the box and tied it to the fence and left him for dead.
At first glance , Dudley is not perfect and certainly isn't beautiful by normal standards but that is no reason to sentence him to certain death. Dudley was abandoned because he is not "cosmetically" perfect, not beautiful, he walks funny and probably didn't look like the other kids in the litter.
Dudley is different.....I am Dudley....
We can only speculate what his life was like before he was thrown away like trash. You see, Dudley was found with a collar so tight he had trouble breathing and the staff who found him immediately cut the collar off, so he could breath. The tight collar was just the beginning of the issues with Dudley. He was severely malnourished, as well as all of his limbs are deformed and have begun to curl due to a very painful bone disease. The extreme pain of his condition has made it very difficult for this sweet boy to walk. If that isn't enough, he is suffering from painful demodex mange, causing his raw skin to peel and crack, making every movement painful for him. We could hope that those are all of the severe issues this boy is facing, but he was dealt a heavy hand. He has bronchial pneumonia, a floating rib, a laundry list of infections, heartworms and orthopedic challenges.
I am Dudley.........
When did we become a nation that destroys those among us who are different? Do we just destroy those who do not fit in the "pretty" mold? Are we so obsessed with beauty that we would eliminate those who are considered not to be aesthetically pleasing? Jurassic Bark Rescue is a small 501c3 dog rescue who believes that every life is worth saving. We will never waiver on our belief that kindness and compassion sees no deformities, we see the beauty of each and every dog that comes in our rescue.
When Jurassic Bark rescue saw the photos of Dudley, we knew at that moment he would be brought into our rescue, as we saw his beauty and his life matters. You see, Dudley is smart, funny and extremely loving and he deserves, above all else to be healthy and loved.
There are far more Dudley's in the world, than the illusion created by humanity that relishes on picture perfect beauty. I am one of them and we have to look out for each other.
We are going to need financial help to get Dudley healthy and ready for adoption. Aren't we all Dudleys in one way, shape or form? By donating to Dudley's healthcare, we can show him how beautiful he really is and that he matters. Let's send a message to all, that different is perfect.
