Pongo was nearly a statistic in a Texas shelter over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The high-kill shelter gave the young dog until 1:00 for an approved rescue to step forward to help her; the only other option would have been humane euthanasia. Brought in as a stray with extensive injuries to her front foot; it had been completely degloved with the bone exposed. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC volunteered, and by Monday morning, Pongo had on her way to the organization’s emergency veterinarian in San Antonio.
What happened to this young dog is not known, but her leg injury remains critical. Everything possible will be done to save the dog’s leg.
“Her sweet face just makes her medical condition so much worst – sweet and suffering,” Rescue Dogs Rock NYC co-founder, Stacy Silverstein, posted on social media.We do know that her medical care will be expensive and we need your help.”
