Meet Botts

Meet Botts. He is about 1.5-2 years old, and we didn’t know much about his life before coming to us, but we know it wasn’t good. His scars tell us that he was likely a bait dog and are a reminder that so many dogs in Memphis need our help. Botts’s finder, Mrs. Tennessee 2019, Paige Botts, tells the story below, which you may remember from our 2019 Howl at the Moon videos.

“I am a physician assistant student at a local university, and on my way to school recently, I saw a bundle next to a street sign. I immediately realized it was a dog and pulled over to see what was going on. When I approached the dog, I honestly couldn’t believe my eyes.

This dog was severely emaciated and wore an oversized men’s gray stained sweatshirt tied with a chain to a street sign. The chain was so tight that he could not move an inch from the pole and lay in his urine. He was covered in crusted blood, oozing wounds, and I could see every bone in his back and hips. Something so odd that besides being in a sweatshirt, in the chain, was a small teddy bear. He was cold to the touch leading me to think he had been there most of the night. I searched for anyone around and was so upset because I could see that this poor baby was hurt, and I couldn’t get him off the pole myself. Even though I was panicking, he was wagging his tail and looking at me with the sweetest eyes.

Finally, an employee from a nearby business was kind enough to help me, and we were able to free him, and I loaded him into my car. He didn’t show one ounce of fear or aggression during all of this. Even though he is covered in puncture wounds from an animal attack, infected, and so malnourished, he was just so loving and curled up in my back seat. I immediately knew who to call for help: Streetdog Foundation.”

We have named this sweet boy Botts in honor of his finder, Paige. We are so appreciative that she stopped to help him and that we can help in his recovery.
