In a rural Texas shelter, a young dog had been surrendered by his owner after what had been referred to as a “vicious dog fight.” Tragically, the dog’s owner apparently did nothing to protect his dog, as the friendly pup reportedly just sat there and “took it” while the other dog tried to kill him.
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC jumped in after a plea for help. The shelter was not able to provide the kind of veterinarian help the dog would need. His condition was listed as critical, and his eye was badly damaged. Although the shelter had assessed the dog as a senior, the pup, now dubbed Donut, is believed to be no more than three-years-old and because of severe neglect – his teeth are in poor condition.
This was his video before leaving the shelter:

Donut underwent surgery over the weekend to remove his eye. He will need extended care.
“Today, Donut is getting some fresh air post surgery and has made friends with the resident cat,” Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the non profit rescue organization posted on social media.“Under the circumstances, he is doing better than expected . Yes Donut has lost his right eye but his life was saved and we know his future is bright.
