A puppy left with horrible chemical burns was found abandoned in the trash in Newport, Tennessee. The 8-week-old  pup has been named Hope and was found outside a restaurant. The burned puppy’s body was 60% covered with burns, and her ear and tongue were the worst affected areas.

Help was on its way, however. Friends Animal Shelter of Cocke County took him in and did their best. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue in Asheville, California, chipped in to help as well, due to the severity of the burns. Hope is now solely in the care of Brother Wolf, where she can receive 24-hour care from the on-site vet.

Hopefully, her young age means that she will bounce back to full health quickly, and continue her recovery well.

Director of Friends Animal Shelter of Cocke County Elisha Henry remembered finding the stricken pup. She told WVLT “I literally sat at my desk and cried for half an hour and I called her Hope, because that’s what she needed. She needed Hope.”

Hope is doing well, and Brother Wolf told her fans that “Hope is already enjoying cuddling up with her wonderful new blanket while she recovers.”

Nobody knows who could do such a horrendous thing to a beautiful puppy, but she is in good care now. Safe hands will tend to her until she is fully healthy. Then, she will be adopted by a more loving family.

Recovery

Brother Wolf has received a lot of concern about Hope and thanked well-wishers in a Facebook post. It read, “Following our most recent updates on Hope, we would like to extend a special thank you for an exceptionally sweet package we received yesterday from FABB (Fur Angel Blessing Blanketeers), addressed directly to Hope. Inside the box was a heartfelt card, a toy, and a soft, handmade prayer blanket that over 150 people put their thoughts and prayers onto. Hope is already enjoying cuddling up with her wonderful new blanket while she recovers!
