In a quiet area of Dallas, Benjamin curled up along the outer hallway of a local school. The dog, thought to be a SharPei and Basset hound mix, had been in excruciating pain; he was alone and seemed to be just waiting to die.
“We cried when we saw the first photo of Benjamin knowing that his injuries were clearly performed with malice and hate,” stated Rescue Dogs Rock NYC co-founder Stacey Silverstein on the organization’s Facebook page on Tuesday evening. “His injured eye is missing, smashed in, bloody and the other eye is closed and infected. We hope the eye can be saved.”
No one knows what happened, nor does anyone know why this dog was nearly beaten to death by a depraved person determined to inflict misery on a defenseless dog. When rescued, Benjamin’s ears were ripped and gashes and bruises covered his entire body. Blood was everywhere.
The dog was rushed to the organization’s veterinary partner emergency hospital where he is receiving life saving care. Benjamin was administered heavy pain medication as clearly he had been in severe discomfort. He is currently on intravenous medication and needs supportive care. Benjamin will be given a full medical work up to correctly diagnose and treat his severe injuries.
