Rescue steps forward to help seriously injured pug

A two-year-old injured pug viciously attacked by other dogs was surrendered on Friday to the Downey Animal Care Center by his owners.  The shelter transferred the seriously injured dog to a private veterinarian where drains were placed in his head to drain the abscesses.

“…swollen dorsal head, possible rupture, abscess, laceration, ventral neck swelling, punctures and serious discharge,” has been included in the dog’s medical update.

On Friday, his family left him at the shelter, and his condition and photos were released by the shelter as they appealed for an approved rescue to help. Animal advocates have been actively sharing this little dog’s plight. On Monday, to the rescue came Leave No Paws Behind, Inc., and even though they have been inundated with medical cases for the last few days and the urgent need for more foster homes,

“… how can we just look away and pretend we did not see this sweet and innocent little fella who is in very critical condition?,” asked rescue founder Toby Wisneski on their Facebook page.  “I saw this post this morning, picked up the phone and yes, this little man will be boarding the LNPB Freedom Ride and will be rushed immediately to the Pet Doctors of Sherman Oaks for immediate medical care and evaluation.”

The dog’s care is expected to be extremely costly, but it is hoped donations will come in to offset some of the medical charges. To donate, please click here.

Updates to follow; this is a developing story and a heartwarming rescue intended to save another innocent life. Please note, there has been no information available at this time as to the attack or the owners concerning this dog.

    Pray this little Pug gets the treatment he deserves for a full recovery. Two other dogs attacked him but no further details as to where,when or how it happened. Were the other dogs loose? Hope we find out the full details. Thanks to Leave No Paws Behind, Inc for their devotion to helping animals like this.

    Oh my goodness, how this precious little pug survived is beyond me. Thank the Good Lord that Leave No Paws Behind Inc were able to step up to save this poor baby. Thoughts and Prayers that he will suffer minimal pain while undergoing all the necessary treatment and that he will heal and recover well and be able to enjoy a wonderful life in his furever home.

    I sincerely hope that whoever is responsible for this little fella’s condition will be identified quickly and brought before the justice system with maximum penalties (hopefully a hefty fine plus serious jail time) enforced.
