Bia was found with a noose around her neck.
The incredible team at Dallas Dog RRR worked through the night saving a stray who was almost decapitated by an embedded noose or whatever the hell is around her neck. She was seen by witnesses roaming rural streets. Animal Control were able to trap her in time to save her life. Rescuers knew they needed to act quickly if she was going to survive. With the help of Pilots N Paws they were able to fly Bia out of the rural town and to the Emergency hospital.
Doctors were preparing to stabilize and save her. It truly took a village to find and transport Bia. Doctors reported that she is in horrible condition and her body had started to shut down. As you can see from the photos and video her neck is almost cut in half, her body is all skin and bones and she is extremely scared.
No-one knows how long she has been imprisoned like this. Who knows who did this and why. There is no back story on her because she was found as a stray. Rescuers are now focused on saving her life.
Dallas Dog RRR specializes in saving animals like Bia and their partner clinic are literally working around the clock stabilizing her and start the surgery to remove whatever has strangled her. First she was sedated and placed on IV pain medications to start the procedure. Because of her condition it is risky but it is the only way her life can be saved.
UPDATE 5-22-19: 24 hours after having the cords removed from inside her neck and Bia is resting. Her wounds have been cleaned and she is on IV fluids and pain meds. She will remain in the hospital for a few days until she is strong enough to have the would sutured. Please support her care below.
UPDATE 6-4-19: BIA is doing well and is scheduled for surgery this upcoming week to remove the fatty growth at the hands of her badly embedded collar. She continues to receive hydrotherapy and the wound around her neck is healing well. She's also slowly growing back her hair. She's still learning to trust and love, but she's improving and has been slowly coming out of her shell. Please continue to support her ongoing care. This is at a huge cost to a nonprofits.
