Some of the best qualities about pets are their ability to live in the present and not feel sorry for themselves. Two animals covered in past stories, Patrick the pitbull who was nearly starved to death by his owner and Dexter the tiny kitten beaten with a baseball bat are not looking back at the atrocities inflicted on them. In fact both animals are doing very well.
Patrick was discovered in Newark, NJ by a maintenance worker after the dog had been thrown down an apartment garbage chute. He had been nearly starved to death by his owner.
The dog went through weeks of intensive care, blood transfusions and a surgery to remove a foreign object.
Thanks to the skillful hands of veterinarians at Garden State Veterinary Specialists, Patrick has made a miraculous recovery and has proved to be a loving animal that holds no grudges for his abuse. He continues to be in the custody of GSVS and the veterinarian who saved his life.
Below is the latest video of him playing, just like any other pup.
