Update 1/17 on Sexually Asssaulted Puppy



A further correction to the original story is that the dog came from 123 Seth Boyden Terrace, and was found in a common hallway which is where the incident took place.

Dr. Kate Palmer of Garden State Veterinary Specialists called at 9:30 a.m. this morning to discuss the 10 month old female pit bull that we have named Kate in honor of her veterinary caretaker.

When the dog arrived at the Associated Humane Societies on 1/16 at 8 a.m., the dog was in shock and was extremely cold. We immediately warmed the dog, gave a mild sedation and sent her by ambulance to Garden State. According to Dr. Palmer, if she had gotten there 1/2 hour later, SHE WOULD HAVE DIED.

Her body had already started to shut down - dehydration, traumatic shock, watery diarrhea, all contributed to her condition.

When she was somewhat stabilized, they gave her a colonoscopy and found no internal tears but some other long-standing problems in the intestines which could be parasites, colitis, etc.

They are trying to improve her condition but this will take some time. She vomited last night, still has bloody diarrhea. This morning, she finally stood up - something she hadn't done until that time.

According to Dr. Palmer, her condition is guarded. She will call us at the end of the day to give us an update.

Read the initial story about this puppy, including rewards offered for information leading to the perpetrator(s).
