In Corsicana, Texas a five-month-old puppy, with her jaw broken in half, arrived at the local animal shelter on Wednesday morning after having been picked up by Animal Control. Her mouth was bleeding; her jaw bone exposed and broken in half.
When Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped forward to help, a volunteer waited until Animal Control arrived at the shelter in order to rush the puppy to an emergency veterinary hospital for life saving jaw surgery.
“We suspect she was hit of kicked in the face by some evil person as she has no other injuries,” stated the rescue co-founder Stacey Silverstein on the group’s social media page. “We hope karma gets you. She’s in a great deal of pain and crying.”
Now dubbed Nikki, the puppy was not able to eat or move her jaw without screaming in pain. A feeding tube will be inserted to keep her hydrated and comfortable.
Nikki will need surgery and extended care, however this five-month-old puppy deserves to live a long and healthy life. To help with her expensive medical expenses, donations can be made here.
