The emaciated dog received his name because they found him on Halloween and he is also all black. So, they named him Spyder. Spider with his very own twist; it seemed perfectly fitting.
The shelter gave the little dog an examination and found that the poor thing had parasites, overgrown nails, missing fur, and wounds all over his body. The shelter gave him a “body score” of a one out of nine.
The shelter was scared that the poor thing was far too medically challenged so they called Rescue Dogs Rock NYC to help them. Of course, they immediately agreed to take the sweet boy in their care.
Spyder was taken to the rescue’s vet partner in nearby South Carolina where they put him on an IV and antibiotics. The little guy weighed only 15 pounds and he had a long road to recovery ahead.
“He’s still shy and a little wary of strangers but he’s doing better,” O’Sullivan said. “He’s getting a little stronger every day. He’s got a long road back both physically and mentally.”
