When He Grew Sick, His Family Dumped Him On The Streets To Live Amongst Garbage

For more than a year, the volunteers at Sidewalk Specials have tried to catch a stray dog, whom they named Crumb.

Every time anyone got close to him, he bolted in fear. He evaded rescue at all costs, because he was so terrified of humans.

Crumb had a family once, but when he got sick, they decided to dump him on the streets of De Doorns, South Africa.

Crumb then spent the next few years living amongst trash. People walked by him every day, but no one really cared to help, especially after he lost all of his hair due to mange.

Thankfully, a kind-hearted gentleman in the De Doors township was finally able to catch Crumb and get him in Sidewalk Specials’ care.

They brought him to vet point, where he received x-rays and a medical examination.

He had broken teeth from eating rocks, TVT cancer (transmissible venereal tumor), tick bite fever, mange, and ear infections. He needed at least four teeth removed, due to exposed nerves.

After a month of receiving treatments and living in foster care, his skin mange is no longer contagious, his TVT cancer is responding well to chemotherapy, and he learned to walk great on a leash and is fully house trained.

Crumb is approximately two years old, is friendly with other dogs, and is no longer afraid of people. He loves everyone he meets and now just needs a forever family to love him in return.
