Dog found floating in Texas canal with head barely above water

A dog was rescued late Monday night from a south Texas canal; his head barely above water, and his canine friend already dead from drowning floating next to him. There was no way Foxy could escape the canal; that is until someone spotted him and a local policeman became the dog’s first line of help.

When Rescue Dogs Rock NYC were called, they immediately volunteered to help, and Foxy was whisked off to the emergency veterinarian hospital. Nearly dead, but still showing signs of wanting to live, Foxy received a life-saving transfusion. Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the rescue organization, described veterinarians initial diagnosis for Foxy as suffering from tickborne infections of anaplasma and ehrlichia. He is extremely anemic (13%) with no platelets.

Foxy is very weak, covered in ticks and his prognosis is unknown at this time. Surely it is unconscionable how anyone could be so unfeeling and overtly cruel to innocent dogs. Be the voice for those who can not speak. It was a compassionate person who spotted Foxy helplessly struggling to stay afloat last night, and it was a heroic local policeman who stepped forward to save this dog.
