Romeo and Damian are 5-year-old pit bulls who were rescued together. When the Nassau County SPCA found them, the poor dogs were starving, dehydrated and emaciated, with their ribs, spines and hips all showing prominently. They were immediately rushed to a local vet office to start receiving the care they’d clearly never been given before.
After vets examined the dogs, it was determined that on top of all his other issues, Romeo also had metallic foreign bodies in his stomach. Both dogs have a long ways to go in terms of recovery, but the neglect and trauma they’ve endured has somehow not broken their spirits in the least.
