Who could imagine Jennie’s emotional state after her owner tied her up and abandoned her as Hurricane Harvey moved closer to her home? Flood waters began to rise – the desperation and fear engulfing her every emotion. And then came the young dog’s decision; would she drown or would she try to escape however she could?
And so Jennie chewed off her leg. For over a week she suffered until rescuers arrived. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC were asked to help, and without hesitation, Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the organization volunteered:
“This is what desperation and despair look like,” stated Stacey as she posted the heartbreaking photos of Jennie on social media with the lower part of her leg missing. “Her owners left her tied like this and abandoned here. It’s miraculous she survived this horrific event. We rushed her to Blue Pearl Emergency Hospital in Spring Texas where she remains.”
It may have been just in time that the dog was rescued. Immediately upon arrival Jennie needed a blood transfusion. When her condition is stable, she will need to have her leg amputated.
“Jennie was an innocent victim of despicable owners who just left her to die an agonizing death.”
