More information has been released about the severely injured puppy found in a Baltimore alley Wednesday: It now appears she had been set on fire. Officials at the Noah's Arks Rescue in South Carolina, where the 6-month-old pup was transported, say Petunia (formerly called Deacon) has an extreme case of demodex, or mites. And she has wounds consistent with being severely burned. She is in critical care and will remain in that condition for some time, but is being heavily medicated so her wounds don't hurt.  She was originally taken to the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS)

Matt Corasanti was taking his gear off after a quick, after-work kayak outing in Fells Point when a frantic man ran up to him, saying his dog had fallen into the water and asking whether Corasanti could help him. Corasanti hopped back into his kayak, docked at the Canton Kayak Club's pier in the 1600 block of Thames St., and paddled toward the puppy, which was trying to scramble back over a concrete barrier and onto the dock. But he couldn't reach the puppy. So the 28-year-old Canton man slipped out of his kayak and into the harbor.

Rescued from a small-scale Baltimore puppy mill last week, 8-week-old pups Flapjack, Penguin, Murphy, and Sadie are all fighting a potentially deadly virus, leaving two local rescue organizations hoping for donations to pay for their care. The four puppies were some of 32 dogs found living in filthy cages without adequate food or water in a Baltimore city home last week. Twenty of the dogs were taken to the MD SPCA, and the rest were sent to other rescues, including Saving Grace Animal Rescue of Maryland, which relies completely on foster homes to care for the dogs and cats it places for adoption.
