A severely injured dog who found himself kenneled at Florida’s Miami-Dade Animal Services facility has been rescued. The dog, currently known as Buddy, is now in the care of Love is Fur Ever Dog Rescue and he is in need of extensive veterinary care to help him overcome his widespread wounds.
On Wednesday morning, the animal rescue group let Facebook followers know that Buddy was out of the Miami-Dade facility:
💔OMG. We have no words other than heartbroken💔
He is OUT and heading directly to our clinic with Dr. Thomas W Jackson DVM & Destiny in Lee County FL.
In much worse shape than we expected💔
It is believed that Buddy may have bounced out of the back of a truck, and/or that he was dragged. His injuries have gone untreated for some time and he is finally getting the help that he needs to recuperate.
At the veterinary hospital, Buddy is enjoying a “spa” treatment to help the scabs covering his body loosen. After his medicinal soak, he will be sedated and the injuries will be debrided. (See the video of Buddy’s spa treatment here.)
