A frail and young stray dog received medical attention after she made her way into the East Cleveland Fire Department. As soon as the firemen spotted the fearful Pit Bull mix who was just 5 months old, they realized she need medical treatment. She was riddled with open sores all over her body as a result of the severe mange.
During the time that her rescuers were making preparations to transport her to Crossroads Animal Hospital, the stray dog stuck close to one of the firefighters and followed him about.
According to East Cleveland Fire Department Lieutenant Mike Celiga, who spoke with WKYC, “that was a really clever move on her side.” “But she’s desperate, her poor feet are swollen, and she’s got open sores on her head — wow, just a little bit of compassion is going to go a long way for her,” you could say.
The puppy, named Sistine, will remain in the care of Muttley Crue Rescue until such time as the organization deems her fit for adoption.
The good news is that it seems that Sistine has located the place where she will spend the rest of her life. Take a look at the before and after pictures that her rescuers have put on their website.
