A two-month-old puppy is currently fighting for his life at an emergency south Texas veterinary hospital after having been crushed under an iron fence. On Tuesday, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC intervened, after having been told the heartbreaking story of an innocent puppy who fell victim to the severe accident according to his owners, as told by a rescuer:
“A family of low income brought me this pitbull. They said an iron fence fell on top of him. He had two wounds. Last night I fed him. He does drink water. He can’t stand on paws he tries to stand with support. As of this morning he refuses to eat. I believe when pooped hurts him. He started coughing this morning. I cant afford to keep him since I already took in a stray pup with mange. This pup needs emergency help. I believe damage could be internal.” (edited for reading clarity)
Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the rescue organization, has promised to help in any way possible to save the life of this nine to ten-week-old puppy, now dubbed Bales. By Wednesday morning, x-rays showed no broken bones, yet Bales cannot move nor can he stand; earlier in the morning he urinated on himself. It is still not known if he suffered internal injuries. More tests are currently being performed although the positive signs include his body temperature remains normal.
The puppy is currently on intravenous hydration. and veterinarians are awaiting the results of the sonograms and a full blood panel.
“This innocent baby does not deserve this pain and agony. He certainly didn’t deserve to have been crushed by an iron fence,” Stacey added after posting the latest video of a puppy in need of a miracle and the help of kind and compassionate supporters. “We hope we can help him, and we will not stop at anything to try.”
