A dog with shocking injuries arrived at a veterinarian hospital in South Carolina on Wednesday; her name was Foxy. The dog’s owner stated their 12-year-old Labrador retriever mix had been attacked by another dog.
What happened to Foxy was heartbreaking, and when her owner asked that her dog be euthanized, veterinarians asked if the owner would surrender her, and they would reach out to a rescue organization for help. When Rescue Dogs Rock NYC were contacted, they immediately stepped up for the sweet senior:
“Seeing this made our hearts literally hurt,” stated Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the rescue organization. “Foxy is a sweet 12-year-old Lab mix who was attacked by another dog in South Carolina. She came into our vet, and there were two options – she could have been euthanized or admitted to the hospital for surgery.”
Hours later, it was decided surgery was her only option – as small as the odds were, to survive. Sadly, Foxy died the next day; her body so ravaged by her injuries, she wasn’t strong enough to fight the battle of her life.
Advocates had been questioning Foxy’s injuries and how they occurred. The next day Foxy’s owner corrected her first explanation stating that Foxy had been attacked by four dogs. Social media comments however have questioned the dog’s injuries and insist they were not consistent with a dog attack.
By Friday afternoon, however a disturbing update was reported.
“Foxy’s owner has just been in contact with our SC vet. She just witnessed a man beating one of her dogs with a baseball bat. The man took off & the police are now investigating. It is now believed that this same monster attacked & scalped Foxy. Her wounds are more consistent with a human having done this rather than dogs. We are so angry & upset. This horrible monster must be caught!!! Keep your dogs safe! This is Columbia SC.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities. Please keep your dogs safe.
