Who would hit a dog so hard that his eye would literally pop out of its socket? Barely six-months old, Tristan, the shepherd mix, had been the victim of blunt force trauma and then left to suffer. Had it not been for volunteers and advocates reaching out to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, from the rural South Carolina shelter, Tristan never would have seen the sun rise for a new day.

“His problem is obvious, but how he got this way is a mystery. The usual cause of these types of injuries is blunt force trauma; eyes don’t just pop out do they? Poor Tristan was rushed from the shelter shortly after we got the plea to our SC vet partner. This poor puppy is suffering and in great pain,” Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the rescue posted on the group’s Facebook page shortly after Tristan was rescued.

On Thursday afternoon, Tristan was rushed to the organization’s emergency veterinarian partner where the puppy was immediately provided with pain medication. Later that afternoon, he underwent surgery to remove his eye. Tragically, there were no other options.

“Sweet puppy Tristan is recovering from surgery to remove that bad eye. Poor baby, you can see where the blood had run down his sweet face. Whoever caused this traumatic injury clearly hit him good and hard! We also learned he was covered in ticks!,”

And although this puppy will now move forward with just one eye, he will never endure another day of abuse or pain. Sadly, there are no clues to Tristan’s past or who may have been so cruel.  Many thanks to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC for making a difference; one dog at a time.

    Animal abuse has exploded all over the world. It’s the state of this evil, fallen world and all of the children of Satan here. The way a person treats the most vulnerable among us is a window into their soul.

    Thanks again, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. Poor Tristan. Here’s hoping they find who did this to you and press charges. Better yet, here’s hoping they piss some biker gang off and get the same done to them that they did to Tristan. THEN they can go to prison….

    LAWS ARE NOT STRONG ENOUGH THATS WHY THESE NFG, POS MONSTERS KEEP DOING THIS! “ELECTED” Judges do NOT take this as serious as if they were humans. If someone did this too a human oh my God, the judge would throw the book at them! When will the judge’s realize that HUMANS do NOT deserve too be protected… It is the humans that are doing this BRUTAL BARBARIC BEHAVIOR IN OUR INSANE & INHUMANE CRAZY WORLD!!!

    Thank you again Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, you have stepped up again to help a poor dog in distress. Keeping Tristan in our prayers for a full recovery and a happy safe home.

    I often wonder how many abusers of innocent animals believe in God then proceed to live their life reeking havoc and misery! This is a viscous cruel attack on a helpless pup,a creature created by God. This is so reprehensible and appalling,I’m only comforted by the fact that this sweet baby will now have a better life. Praying loving healing prayers for this little fur baby❤️

    Once again Rescue Dogs NYC has come thru for an abused animal. Tristan will recover and hopefully will get the safe loving home he never had. And, if there is any justice in this world, the hunk of sewer slime who abused him will end up living and dying a slow painful death in the gutter where they belong and NO ONE CARES!

    There seems to be an explosion of this viciousness toward defenseless animals in south Carolina more than other places. Charleston really been in the news with this kind of horrific story a lot. Cowardly bastards makes me want to turn the tables on these “humans” and give them a dose of their own medicine..

    You know the old saying an eye for an eye how fitting here. If these assholes received the torture and abuse they hand out to these poor dogs, maybe then they would think twice before doing it. I pray for a fast recovery for Tristan.

    Ils sont tellements minables, insignifiants, si médiocres qu’ils s’en prennent à plus faible. Se ne sont que des larves, des lâches, des dangers pour la société, il faut les abattrent. Aucune excuse ne pourrait justifier un tel acte.
