German shepherd victim of ‘horrific cruelty’ in need of help

In the Las Vegas area, a German shepherd now dubbed Alexander was the victim of “horrific cruelty” according to the animal welfare organization helping him.

On Thursday, Animal Control brought Alexander to the Animal Foundation after the dog was discovered stabbed several times with injuries to his legs, neck and abdomen. The medical staff were quickly able to tend to the dog’s wounds and relieve his pain, however the injury to his abdomen was critical and required surgery.

Alexander was rushed to Lone Mountain Animal Hospital where surgeons removed the dog’s spleen and part of his intestine. He will need to stay at the hospital for several days and is currently being treated with intravenous fluids and antibiotics.

We don’t know the details of how this happened to Alexander, but we are so thankful we were able to get him the emergency medical care he needed to survive this horrific attack.

    THANK you L.V.A.C. for being a SHINING example of how to respond to an innocent animal in need of “proper” attention and kind HANDLING. Thank you Animal Foundation and Lone Animal Hospital and surgeon for stepping up and blessing this guy with your talents and resources. Calling on L.V.P.D. to please step up and do their part, find out who did this and punish them to the fullest extent of the law.
