In Istanbul, a puppy caked with glue and dirt was found in a box. With so much debris stuck to him, he could barely move. Apparently, “just for fun,” some local kids took the puppy and doused him with glue and then covered him with dirt. Why would kids do such a horrible thing to an innocent animal? How could they think what they were doing was fun? There are so many questions, and unfortunately, there are not enough answers. He’Art of Rescue International found the puppy, now named Pascal, at a public shelter and took him in. They shared his discovery on their Facebook page, and his story went viral. Pascal’s situation touched the hearts of animal lovers all over the world. People from every country wanted to adopt this poor puppy and show him love and compassion.

Staff at He’Art of Rescue started the painstaking process of trying to peel the matted fur off the puppy. There was so much glue on his body it acted like cement, cutting circulation off to parts of his tiny body. After being starved of blood, one of Pascal’s ears became necrotic.

After hours of carefully shaving and cutting, they got most of the matted fur off Pascal. He was naked and shivering, but he was free from the cement-like casing previously covering his body.

He wasn’t out of the woods yet.

Pascal could not be discharged since he showed signs of Parvo disease. This viral infection impacts the intestines and causes vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, and lack of appetite. Doctors had to treat him for Parvo before he could be put up for adoption.
