An injured pup was found inside a container outside a shelter. The poor dog was terribly injured and in a horrific condition. It was clear to see that the dog was used as a bait dog as there were big wounds covering her massively swollen head.
Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs stepped up to help save the sweet girl. The shelter that found the dog informed their cruelty department that is now investigating. Dog fighting is illegal and a felony in all 50 states, but that does not mean that monsters do not still do it.
The rescuers took the poor girl staight away to the clinc to start the treatments that she needed. However they also posted her heartbroken story on their Facebook page :“Bunny arrived to the hospital yesterday afternoon at about 2pm. Her medical team was able to get her temperature up, she was very anemic, weak and wounded. She required an emergency blood transfusion, provided by rescue dog , Crawford, I guess he’s her maker now. She is loaded with worms, had explosive diarrhea. Her various wounds (NEW AND OLD) are consistent with being used as a bait dog. The major concern right now is that some of those wounds are so necrotic that she is septic, she is getting hit hard with antibiotics to get that contained.”
Thankfully it seemed that the antibiotics the innocent dog was taken had help her swollen head to go down. “Right now the plan is to treat the sepsis alongside all of the necrotic tissue around the head and laser the wounds on her legs. The Tail, which has exposed bone, is an entirely different ball game, she may have to have it amputated.”
She is expected to be in the hospital for a long time. Her open wounds need to be treated, as well as her malnourished body. She arrived with all her ribs showing. Aside from the physical injuries, she will need to learn to trust humans again. Although, her wonderful medical team is helping to restore her faith in mankind.
“Bunny is 3 years old and our hopes are that once she gets through this nightmare, when can get her a home with loving people as all pets should have. There is a monster who did this to her out there lingering in society and we hope the cruelty division finds them.”
