Adelphia: Jaw hanging and broken from abuse.

Adelphia: Jaw hanging and broken from abuse.

 

Adelphia has endured some of the worst abuse in our years in rescue to date. Her mandible (lower jaw) was broken in several places. Adelphia is recovering from her jaw surgery from last week . She was brought in to a GA kill shelter. She was immediately rushed to Rescue Dogs Rock's emergency vet for very specialized surgery.

She is on heavy pain medication and is doing well, considering the horrific ordeal she has been through. She was either kicked or hit with such force that her jaw was broken in several places. When R.D.R. rescued Adelphia her lower jaw was dangling from her mouth and even worse was the injury she sustained was not fresh which means after being hit she remained like this for several days.

We cannot imagine the pain she must have felt. Tomorrow Adelphia will be having a second surgery to remove more bone in her jaw. After this surgery is completed she will start the healing process. We are told that her prognosis is very good and once she is recovered she will eat and drink like a normal pup. Adelphia is truly a gorgeous sweet puppy even after all that she has suffered.

She still clings to humans for affection. Adelphia is truly an inspiration to us all and we are grateful to have been given the opportunity to help save her and give her this second chance at the life she was meant to have. Please say a prayer for Adelphia for a successful second surgery.
