In a senseless and heartless act of animal cruelty, a mastiff had been left trapped in the basement of an abandoned house in Georgia. The wire been wrapped around the her back leg nearly severed her limb 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.
Early Thursday morning, the 123-pound dog, named Grace, was sedated and the wire strangling her leg was surgically removed. Surgeons had hoped to save her leg stating the tendon in her leg was still intact. Doctors waited 24-hours to determine if her leg could be spared, however it has since turned necrotic and will therefore need the amputation.
“You can see she also has a deep wound on the other leg from that awful wire that was strangling her leg for God knows hoe long… Grace was being fed as she’s overweight and this means whoever fed her saw her leg and did nothing to help her,” co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC posted on the dog’s update early Friday morning. “How sick is that? Seriously disgusting!”
Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. To help with Grace’s medical expenses and recovery, donations can be sent via the following link:
