Puppy found outside in the cold on Christmas night paws at stranger’s door for help

"He was scratching at their door for three hours out in the cold."

On Christmas night a Hamburg family came home from their holiday celebrations to find a puppy leaning on the side of their home.

They ran to him and put a leash on him. He fell to the ground. He was so frightened and cold he had a seizure. 

The family hurried and wrapped him in a towel to keep him warm. Once the seizure ended, they brought him in from the cold and put him in a crate when he had another seizure. 

“They got him settled after that seizure and looked at their security camera. He was scratching at their door for three hours out in the cold,” said Natalie Pipitone Howes of Hamburg Mutts.

The next morning the family called the police and when the police officer picked him up he suffered another seizure in the officer’s arms.

That’s when Hamburg Mutts for Freedom stepped in to help this poor angel. 

“We pray he will not have any more issues, but we will do whatever we can for him,” said  Pipitone Howes. “We will get him all checked over, get him vetted and find him a loving home.” 

The officer named him Boomer. If you would like to help Boomer with medical bills, you can make a donation to Hamburg Mutts on PayPal or Facebook or send a check to Hamburg Mutts for Freedom
PO Box 713, Derby, NY 14047.
