A three-day-old puppy was found wandering around the streets and it was discovered that he had been scalped. How could anyone do this to a brand new puppy? Then leave him fending for himself in the middle of the street.
The person that brought him into Umbrella of Hope, an animal rescue, in Pittsburg, California told the staff “he was walking down the streets”. We all know that a 3-day old puppy doesn’t walk anywhere let alone down the street. The shelter is investigating.
The staff gave him the name Hoka.
Hoka’s eyes weren’t opened yet and he barely weighed a pound. and his ear flaps were torn away during the event that injured him. According to their Facebook page, the puppy will need surgery in the future to be able to hear.
“The vet was able to sedate him and close his wounds. He has antibiotics and pain meds. And a 24-hour round-the-clock RVT nurse for the next few weeks at the very least. Hoka eats from a bottle and is warm and comfortable.” the puppy’s update stated.

Hoka, the puppy…
