Lucky dog escaped death after being stung by thousands of bees
His relatives checked him into a shelter after he was attacked by thousands of bees and abandoned him there, making the already bad condition worse.
The deaf Pit Bull who was eventually given the name Stinger by those who saved him arrived to the shelter with several life-threatening blisters covering every inch of his body.
They were planning to put the dog to death because they couldn’t treat him at all in his current state.
The LuvnPupz organization’s founder Carri Shipaila, a rescuer based in Greater Grand Rapids, Michigan, then stepped in to help the animals. She acted quickly after learning about Stinger and drove nearly an hour to pick him up from the animal shelter after getting in her car.
She immediately started working to save Stinger’s life after learning that his family had decided not to take him in. In addition to treating his stings, they also took care of the skin infection and sarcoptic mange he later had as a result of the stings.
He sadly ended up having pemphigus, an autoimmune condition, which he will have to live with for the rest of his life.
Due to the high costs of his care, he will never be eligible for adoption, but he did find a loving forever home with a foster and will continue to get care and rehabilitation from LuvnPupz. He will never be offered for adoption despite this.
Stinger has come a long way since he was first taken to the shelter as a stray. Finally cured from his excruciating blisters, he now wears a breathtakingly gorgeous white coat.
He is such a loving, happy dog, and he is thriving in his new life with a caring household.
