At first glance, rescuers thought they were dealing with an aged chihuahua who had lost his teeth because of neglect. Tragically, the pooch has been rushed to the veterinarian on Saturday evening; his rescuers state this dog is less than two-years-old.

Rescuers believed tiny little Nemo has been badly abused and his teeth have been knocked out.

"Only a monster would knock the teeth out of a helpless little chihuahua," stated Kathleen Godwin of Ithaca, New York. "It's beyond horrible to think of what this poor little one must have suffered and the pain he must be in now."

Named Nemo, Partners With Pets, a nonprofit volunteer organization who advocate for the animals at Clayton County Animal Control are trying to raise funds for this dog's emergency care.

A fundraiser has been set up for Nemo. Please click here for more information.

Nemo is at Clayton County Animal Control at 1396 Government Circle Jonesboro, GA 30236. For help with rescue coordination, please email jmpartnersccac@gmail.com, ccacpartners@gmail.com, ansearcher@gmail.com"
