At the St. Landry Parish Animal Control & Rescue on Friday afternoon, an abandoned puppy was rescued. This time, it was different.
“I’ve never met a puppy so busted up …so bruised. So broken,” the organization posted on their Facebook under the tiny Rottweiler’s photo. “Buckwheat, a rottie mix puppy. His rear leg appears broken (it is wrapped in feces COVERED duct tape)… his jaw …appears crooked, possible BROKE too. His left eye busted. This is NO LIFE! Abandoned. Hurt, Imagine his fear.”
That same evening Buckwheat was rushed to the organization’s veterinary hospital for emergency care. During his initial evaluation, Dr. Katie stated his broken jaw had been an old wound which has been healing on its own. The puppy’s back leg, which had been wrapped in duct tape and had a rancid smell when unwrapped had been broken. And on such a young puppy, his left eye had hemorrhaged while his right eye was ulcerated.
More tests and radiographs are currently underway. An approved rescue organization willing to help Buckwheat is asked to contact the shelter. Donations to help Buckwheat now are needed. Send to PayPal Stacey.firstname.lastname@example.org
