Leo Lost His Eye But Not His Heart!

Posted by hendrickandco 04/10/2017 0 Comment(s) Animal Stories,

Baby Leo’s eye was intentionally removed. You read that right… he was a victim of torture who was now adopted! Thanks to your support! This is the power behind a Hendrick & Co. shirt, hoodie or accessory!

When we first saw Leo we all were in tears. It was horrible. Leo used to flinch when a human hand was raised to gently pet him. Even a gentle rub used to send shivers and cries down his body. He was physically and mentally traumatized. This all has changed now!

He was found running the streets in a rural area of Texas. He was bleeding from his eyes and face until he was picked up by animal control and brought to the nearest shelter. While at the shelter Rescue Dogs Rock committed to saving Leo and rushed him straight to the Emergency Vet for life saving medical care. Jacki wrote "We are drowning in vet bills. We will not be able to continue on at this pace without financial help." This is why we stepped up to help and why we create these campaigns!

Leo’s condition was much worse then what rescuers originally thought. Among being stabbed in his eye and face Leo was suffering from a severe tick borne disease that had essentially sucked his blood out of his body. Leo had an emergency blood transfusion to try and bring the platelet count up. In fact at one time his blood platelets were so low with a count of 3 when a normal count is 35!

Well get ready to happy cry!

Leo has suffered tremendously in his past life, losing his eye in the most horrific way. But now Leo never has to look back to his awful past and only to his bright future! When we look at these photos, it confirms, our work has significant impact and we do have the ability to change the lives of these deserving dogs for the better. This is the power behind at Hendrick & Co. animal saving shirt! With every tee you help save dogs like Leo!

Please share Leo's story with your family and friends! He is a shining example of just how powerful an animal's will and love is.
