The photos of one-year-old Freckles are difficult to see, difficult to process, but not nearly as difficult as the pain that he has endured and survived.

This past weekend, Noah's Arks Rescue took the severely abused dog in to their care and right now, he continues his fight for life.

Though appearances may suggest that Freckles should be humanely euthanized, his rescuers believe that he wants to live.
Freckles is stable today, but his condition is still critical. Currently, he is receiving stellar veterinary care, constant monitoring, and good wishes from people across the nation.

Please keep this young dog in your thoughts as he continues to battle for his life.

Donations for Freckles' care can be made at this link.

He is fighting with every ounce of energy he has to make it. He is being monitored in ICU 24 hours a day with the best possible doctors and veterinary technicians around.

He could not be in better hands. We will do updates every day on his progress and sometimes twice a day since he is so critical. Pray for our little boy so he can survive this and finally learn what love truly is.

Freckles is stable today, but his condition is still critical. Currently, he is receiving stellar veterinary care, constant monitoring, and good wishes from people across the nation.

Please keep this young dog in your thoughts as he continues to battle for his life. Bless these wonderful people that are trying to save this baby, Bless his heart, Thanks Dianne

Oh my God, how can anyone, and I mean anyone have this much cruelty in them to do such a despicable thing to this precious dog. You are in my prayers little one, you will pull through and I hope the forever home you get to go to treats you the way you deserve to have been treated, with happiness, peace, security, love and compassion. This picture is heartbreaking and if I could find the person that did this I would not hesitate to make sure he or she never lives to see another sunrise. Please dear God, pull him through - he doesn't deserve to have lived this life.

Praying that this little angel will survive such a horrible ordeal committed by people who don't deserve to have any pets! This little dog was a gift from God but they can't even understand that because they are such low lives! I made a donation for him and I'm saying prayers for his full recovery!

FRECKLES UPDATE.....I am happy to say that our dear boy has been able to hold his head up some today. Before we had to help him and today he seems to be a little more lively. He is eating like a champ and has remained stable all day with constant care and monitoring. Here he is taking a treat. He is still in ICU Critical Care and will remain there for several weeks. The other good news is that he has stopped retaining fluids and his body is becoming more regulated. You can tell there is a big difference from yesterday’s cute puffy picture to how he is now. The new one is how he should be. Thanks for all the wonderful help and prayers for this incredible little dog.
