In a senseless and heartless act of animal cruelty, a mastiff had been left trapped in the basement of an abandoned house in Georgia. A wire had been wrapped around the dog’s back leg nearly severing her leg in half. No one knows how long she had been lying in the corner on the dirt packed floor, but whoever abandoned her, left her there helpless, suffering and unable to free herself.
On Wednesday night, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC offered to help the 123 pound dog dubbed Grace. She was quickly transferred to an emergency veterinarian hospital where she was administered life saving treatment and pain relieving medication. Early Thursday morning, Grace was sedated and the wire strangling her leg was surgically removed. It is not known at this time if Grace’s leg can be saved although there is hope.
“Grace is at a top ER hospital and the ER doctor and surgeon believe there is a chance the leg can be saved,” co-founder of the rescue Jackie O’Sullivan wrote on Facebook in an update. “The tendon is intact. Surgery this morning was to give her that chance. She a 123 pound young dog. It’s a 50/50 right now, but she has the best medical team on it and if there is no choice but to amputate, then that is what we will do.”
Check out Grace’s rescue. It is truly unimaginable how anyone could be so cruel.
