This is Mr. Hicks.
Mr. Hicks has sarcoptic mange, heartworm, dermatitis, severely malnourished and BLIND.
He must have wandered the streets, unable to see, unable to find food. Scared. He is now in foster in Puerto Rico where he is getting unconditional love and attention. But it too a long time for hm to gain some confidence.
He was so scared and confused while in medical boarding, he just curled up in a ball in a corner.
WHY DID THIS HAPPEN? Notice the cropped ears, the collar. This was someone’s dog!
The thought of Hicks living out there all alone, starving, without sight, scared is horrifying.
Well, you will never be alone again Mr Hicks!
He is slowly getting used to humans touching him, caring for him. He is blind so he was so frightened by all the new sounds,smells and touches.
Take your time Mr. Hicks.
We won’t give up if you don’t give up!
Hicks will be starting heart worm treatment as soon as he is a bit stronger. His foster mom in Puerto Rico cooks daily for him and gives him medicated baths every day to help his skin regenerate.
