A ten month old blue nose pitbull puppy was found by Animal Services in San Elizario back on September 26th. The dog was malnourished and suffered severe injuries, including missing his left leg and tail. The Humane Society of El Paso immediately accepted the dog and took him to the El Paso Northeast Veterinary Clinic. The dog was cleaned up, since when he was picked up he was covered in ticks and maggots, with wounds on his body. The veterinarian, Dr. Giles, believes the dog to be at ten months old, but said he suspected the dog had been malnourished for a long time, considering how stunted his growth was. The dog was also only 16 pounds, anemic, and the doctor believed the wounds on his leg and tail were 2 to 3 weeks old.

Dr. Giles believes that the puppy has a fighting chance though, and the dog was immediately put on medication with a recovery plan to help him. The dog was named Amadeus Grey, after the composer Mozart's middle name. Even though the dog has been through a lot in his short life, he still has a sweet and mild manner, and has been put into a foster home. The Humane Society initially thought that his leg would have to be amputated, but recently announced some good news! As of yesterday, Amadeus has gained 9 pounds, his wounds are healing and his leg may not have to be amputated.

The Humane Society of El Paso is working hard to help little Amadeus Grey heal but they need your help! His medical bills are mounting and they need donations to help pay for them. If you would like to donate to Amadeus Grey, please visit the Humane Society website where they have set up a specific donation section just for him. To visit Amadeus' page click here.

The Humane Society also is gearing up for winter! They are looking for donations of blankets or towels for the dogs to keep warm in. They only request no comforters, since the dogs will rip them up into a feathery mess. They are also looking for donations of treats for the cats and dogs, toys and stuffed animals as well for the animals to play with. If you would like to drop off any donations, please visit the Humane Society of El Paso at 4991 Fred Wilson El Paso, TX 79906. The shelter is open Monday through Friday 11 A.M. to 6 P.M., and Saturday and Sunday 11 A.M. to 5 P.M. You can also call the Humane Society with any questions at (915) 532-6971.
