Help us save abused Blue

17 July.
Blue, we discovered on the 17th of July. his owner had asked for tranquillizers for her dog who kept barking apparently. He had instead referred her to us. We did not find an angry or hyper dog but rather the worse case of abuse I have ever witnessed. Blue is fine big dog. He was tied to a pole with thick nylon rope. The rope was so short that poor Blue couldn't turn his head.

I offered to pay for a long lead, feed him daily, pay & get him treatment until he was better and could be adopted she was not happy. Her other dogs had died he survived, he shouldn't be next to a temple, her daughter in law thought the dog would eat her baby (I'm not surprised he was starved). thus I informed her that this was a criminal offence..and i was not asking her.

Blue literally cried and howled with joy he was friendly and delighted..and was even given a bowl of water by his 'owner'. We bought the long leads new collar and worm tablet back with food. he may not have been familiar with dried food but was so overcome with being fed that he didn't stop to breathe.
The plan is to feed him get him strong, sterilisation will be an issue as too big for me to have recouping but time will tell.

There are two issues really firstly I should not be taking on the dog as we are seriously overstretched especially after taking in the 4 Bubbles. (4 one month old female pups) I am feeding over 20 with one meal a day plus dried food. Our 8 pups indoors get 3-4 meals daily. On a good day the meat/fish costs no more than 500. What this means is I am demanding and begging more from the generous who fund our tails.

Additionally, I focus on feeding moms and litters, Blue is an adult and really a domestic medical rescue case. When Anandhu was here. due to him being able to communicate and visit we got Ruby settled into the home she had wandered into. This, apart from food, has cost well over Rs 3000 for vaccinations, sterilization, etc. If we continue to stretch our remit we will put all our dogs in jeopardy as we are already unsustainable.

It is not just the funds but the time, my days are never long enough, i do get support but it is random and still requires supervision. Sourcing and cooking food, feeding, medicating, walking and really my time is currently spread too thinly to meet the individual attention each dog deserves and needs to develop socially & healthily.

Blue however cannot be palmed off, there is no one here to pass him on to. I propose to record his progress, while i feed and get him medical help. I will keep his medical and travel expenses apart from the others. The food will come in the general budget. It is really important that his pain is used to prevent similar as much as possible. so although we have never before taken distressing photos as ''evidence' and emotional black mail for support, this will be the exception. I will keep an online progress report with pics so that his progress is recorded and anyone who wishes can follow it on google docs. When he is better and has been moved we shall use the same to shame and inform the local community. if such abuse becomes widely condemned the negative social stigma attached would dissuade others from behaving similarly. I may get the owner charged with abuse too. we shall see. I do not want to use Blue to 'big up' Cherai tails or our work, there are enough 'animal activists' in that game. But, we have to make his plight a deterrent.

This fund will then be used for the daily delivery costs of feeding him and for his medication, transportation and re-homing.

i will then pay for information on the constitutional & criminal laws applicable while appealing to the 'nationalism' trend informing locals of the constitutional obligations of proud Indian citizens.
It can take 5 days for the monies to reach my bank when I request a withdrawal 7 working days with non rupee donations so in many cases withdrawals will be followed retrospectively with expenditure accounts. Monies donated privately will be included in the accounts.

Dear Supporters,

Sometimes, in fact often, I don't trust myself ..I believe I as wrong before,  emotions blinded my intellect. With Blue we have the photos there is no doubting that i am bearing witness to a miraculous recovery, it takes my breath away.
Then ever cynical I fear he has organ problems or some other issues worry about what may, could be against the evidence before my eyes.

 
I don't know if my hear hurts more when I am overwhelmed with relief or ..the comparison of the before and after pics reminds me of the false advertising ones of fat and thin women...it doesn't seem real and so quickly.
This cannot be food alone, a dose of faith of relief of his knowing someone actually cares and the amount of caring has surely boosted his recovery. He's one of life's wonders.
For those not on facebook this is the story of his sponsor/guardian angel...I have always believed all life is connected, Moti has directly done so with this baby.
The word 'blessed' is banded about senselessly & the accompanying picture of a halo could not be more misleading.
First, we were blessed to find Blue, we didn't know it at the time, human ego being so overblown we assumed he was blessed to have us find him!
It is us who are blessed AGAIN not least because through Blue we attracted Moti's strength & love. I have a friend who tells everyone of the Indian respect for life in all animals, and here was Blue steps away from a temple in the home of the temples keepers being starved and tortured.
Surviving on what we beg daily I was terrified, I couldn't not take him on and yet feared ultimately letting him down again. The tails have taught us not to let money be an obstacle that prevents action, act then...get over the money hurdle one day at a time.
After a week I relented and published the fundraiser, Blue was getting better, it may be emotional blackmail and we never usually show animals in a poor condition unless in retrospect...but in order to help Blue we needed help.
Within hours 3000, from our unknown guardian angel who regularly showers the tails with food and has left us humbled and so very honored by his faith in us and seemingly endless generosity.
A huge donation from a friend of mine who has nothing, but a heart...And in a country where the popular belief is that Muslims (all Muslims) hate dogs..is Muslim
The third donor Rio's savior who has offered him a home beyond any of our dreams and has already been more than generous in his support.
And then while I began to write the update thanking all a message popped up in memory of Moti.
Moti sheltered in the basement of a block of flats, he was loved by this gentleman, his uncles, and father, so I would imagine visited more than one flat.
The joy and love shared with Moti were not lost when he died of cancer that could not be cured. Life has no monetary value, it is priceless, We have a sponsor for Blue who will make sure the lack of funds does not cause his demise.
We will somehow be moving Blue now..as soon as we find a place. For me being empowered to do anything and everything possible is being blessed beyond belief.
Moti, his story, his love his strength ..his impact..now on life ...Blessed.

Dear Supporters,

I am overwhelmed. Blue didn't even have a name...it fortifies me that I am not alone and that others value his life too. Blue has a kilo and a half of sardines & rice/dhal or chicken rice and dhal every day. They don't feed him at all and we need to build him up. We also give him a LOT of dried food and vitamin supplements.
The owner has tried shortening the lead and yesterday complained about us giving the dog dried food. I do not hide my disgust but will keep her scared we need Blue to stay there until I can find him somewhere right where he can recover. We aim to have him out by the end of the week.
Tuesday will get the 4 pups upstairs vaccinated and the nurse will visit Blue.
Yesterday Blue was much happier I got a cuddle he got vocal with us and the tail never stopped he also ate a little slower. It was the first day I felt good about him.
THANK YOU for fuelling us so miracles can happen.
The google doc link I haven't updated I shall soon, sorry..very busy.
I am humbled by your trust and faith in me truly  ..have never been so blessed. Blue is very lucky, whatever happens now he has a name and knows he is valued. Life is short a little love and care make a difference.
