In Dallas, Texas, rescuers were shocked when they spotted a shivering dog curled up inside of a crate lying near the edge of a lonely road. He was a dog who obviously experienced the worst of humanity, but late on Saturday night his luck would finally change. Benny, as he was dubbed, had previously eluded capture. This night however was different; the critically injured pup had just given up; he painfully crawled into the crate and waited for death.
“Laying in a crate in freezing temperatures, shaking. He has avoided capture before, but tonight he could barely move. His face swollen and his skin ripped from his leg almost to the bone. He has given up. Tonight was supposed to be his last night. He is being rushed to the emergency room right now in critical condition,” Leslie wrote on her Facebook page asking advocates for help for Benny and his canine buddy. “He has infections in the wound, infection in his genital area, but the swelling is what needs to be determined and watched. Poor guy was crying while we were there and his wound was dripping pus. You could see down the skin.”
And Rescue Dogs Rock NYC immediately stepped up to help. Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the organization, made arrangements to send Benny to a partner veterinarian emergency hospital where the dog continues to fight for his life. Early Sunday morning, Benny’s update indicates he remains gravely ill
“Benny is in critical condition and was admitted last night and remains at the Emergency Hospital in Dallas Texas today. This video is so heart wrenching as Benny cries out in pain. The open hole on his leg is infected and is so deep , the bone is exposed. Benny is on an IV as he is completely dehydrated weak and starved. X-rays were taken of Benny‘s leg and chest. His head is very swollen and the medical staff are continuing to run tests to figure out why. As you can see it cost the rescue close to $2300 just for the night. Benny will get the very best care but we need your help,” Stacey posted on Facebook.
UPDATE 1-15-17: Here is Benny today, post surgery. Benny had the large deep hole on his leg surgically closed and here he is up and about. Benny has 2 drains in his leg, is on pain meds plus additional meds for skin ears and swelling.Benny continues to be sweet gentle and so mellow. Benny will remain at RDR’s Texas vet until he's ready for transport to NY.
To say we need your help is an understatement. We have partnered with RDR to create Benny’s campaign to help save this poor innocent victim. Everything you see here on his page from a shirt, hoodie, tote or bracelet triggers a life saving donation. Please, if you can, support Benny and his journey to recovery.
