On Monday afternoon, the Philadelphia rescue agency that was trying to save a severely burned puppy named Bebe made a heartbreaking announcement. Philly Bully Team said that during a bandage change, for which Bebe was sedated, it was discovered that the skin on her neck had fallen off.
While it is not uncommon for skin to fall off because of severe burns, it was devastating for Bebe because it meant that nearly all of her skin was gone. The rescue group explained the terrible decision they had to make:
we and the veterinary staff at Penn agreed that it would not be humane to continue. Even if the pain of her injuries was able to be controlled, it’s very likely that the skin grafts would have failed or she would have fallen to an entire skin infection.
Expressing their lack of regret for trying to save her precious life:
