Finally, a woman in Nereus’ neighborhood who’d seen him limping around decided she couldn’t let him live in pain any longer. She called New York Bully Crew’s emergency hotline, hoping the rescue would be able to help the poor senior pittie. One of the rescue’s volunteers went to the neighborhood with her friend, who is a police officer, found the yard where Nereus was being kept and boldly asked the man living there if he would let her help his dog. He immediately agreed.
Not wanting to get in trouble, the man gave up Nereus to the volunteer and the police officer without any sort of a fight. The pair quickly took Nereus to their car, overjoyed that he would finally get the help he deserved. It was then that they noticed something about Nereus was a little off.
