Oliver, a pit bull terrier, is suffering from a large wound on his leg and a puncture through his ear, as well as itchy, oozing sores all over his body from a severe skin disease left untreated.

NEW PORT RICHEY — A local rescue organization is seeking donations to help Oliver, an abandoned pit bull terrier who needs medical treatment.

Oliver is suffering from a large wound on his leg and a puncture through his ear, as well as itchy, oozing sores all over his body from a severe skin disease that was left untreated, according to Rugaz Rescue, a Tampa Bay pit bull rescue organization.

Despite the severe neglect this puppy has suffered, he has a very gentle and sweet personality, the rescue organization said. They named him Oliver after the olive tree, which signifies the good of charity.

Oliver is attempting to rally and is in stable condition at the Regency Park Animal Hospital in New Port Richey.

Donations for his care can be made directly to Regency Park Animal Hospital at (727) 848-6247 or via PayPal at the nonprofit's website, www.RugazRescue.com.
