Biggie D's legs were chopped off and his bone and muscle are exposed!

Biggie D's legs were chopped off and his bone and muscle are exposed!

 

I know this is graphic but please don’t look away! We are so angry and our hearts are broken. Biggie D is only 5 month old puppy and dumped at a rural Texas Shelter. His legs were chopped off, his bone and muscle are exposed, and he was obviously in severe pain upon entering the shelter! We are desperate for your support.

He was brought to the shelter by his “OWNER" who claims that he was run over by a train and he could not afford to care for him. So he brought him to the shelter and refused to sign any paperwork. The shelter Vet was called in and was horrified by what she saw. She immediately transported Biggie D to her private clinic. Knowing his medical care would be thousands of dollars, Rescue Dogs Rock has stepped in to save his life.

In turn, we are asking our loyal supporters like you for help. How long has he suffered like this we do not know. The shelter vet believes he was like this without treatment for several days! He has now been given injectable pain medication was stabilized for surgery. To say we need your help is an understatement. He absolutely can be saved and with your help, RDR can save him from this nightmare. 

Surgery is underway to debride the exposed bone fragments and muscle. Under anesthesia it was discovered his hip is also dislocated as well and he will need hip surgery at a later date. Rescue Dogs Rock have made a promise to Biggie D to save his life but they cannot do that without your help. We need funds to give Biggie D, once he’s healed, 2 prosthetics for his hind legs. We know Biggie D has a long road to recovery but he deserves this chance at survival. We hope you support rescuers decision.

This is where we are asking for your help!  His surgery will cost in the thousands not to mention his continued care. That is just not the type of funds Rescue Dogs Rock has. We have stepped in to help. We have created the Animal Abuse Awareness shirts, hoodies, totes and bracelets you see below. We ask that if you would consider one of these items for your Christmas gift list. It's a great gift to give to family and friends and you get to tell them they helped save Biggie D!


UPDATE 12-13-17:


What you see here are his 2 back legs post surgery. Sadly he only has 2 stumps now. This is abuse at its worst. I know how hard it is to see these images but we must share his story to become his voice. 

Big D had surgery to debride and clean and close up the exposed bone, muscle and skin after he was brutally abused. The pain poor Big D endured for days with no pain medication before being brought to a rural shelter is heartbreaking.

 The case is under investigation and we will not be able to speak about it until they have concluded. His rescuers at RDR are hoping Big D will be able to have 2 prosthetics for both his back legs, after he heals. He’s first has to recover from surgery today, which will be a lengthy process. With this surgery completed we are now working on continuing to raise funds for his prosthetic legs. Please continue to purchase our Animal Abuse Awareness shirt, hoodies and jewelry.


UPDATE 12-17-17:

According to Big Daddy’s veterinarian team, the very frightened puppy has clearly been mentally and physically damaged to a such a severe degree, that he will need months to regain his confidence; knowing he’s safe and will never be harmed again. Right now he’s described as a very sad puppy wondering how this could have happened to him. “We are hoping Big D will be able to have 2 prosthesis for both his back legs after he heals. He’s first got to recover from surgery today, which will be a lengthy process,” the team at RDR posted on Facebook, "He’s resting comfortably and on heavy pain meds right now.'”

UPDATE 1-18-18: A MESSAGE FROM HIS MOMMY

We have a message from Biggie D's new Mommy. Please read here, " When they opened the back door of the van the tag from the previous dog was hanging and it said “BOONE”. My husband and I looked at each other and instantly had tears. We chose that name the week prior to change his name to. Boone means Miracle and that is exactly what he is. As I put Boone in my arms, I was shocked at how small he was. I was shocked at how little he weighed."

"I noticed during our travels his little nubs were bleeding a bit. When we arrived home I was not comfortable at the amount of discharge that was coming from his nubs so we took him to the emergency room at Butler Veterinary Associates and Emergency Center in Butler Pennsylvania. It was so hard explaining what had happened. I had tears in my eyes trying to show them pictures and video from facebook. He was bleeding from the pressure of his body during the trip. I am glad that I had him checked out. As we finally brought him home and we put him on the made up bed we had for him I realized just how small and broken he was. He was underweight and his little hip bones stuck out. He would barely make eye contact with you and how all he wanted was to be held."

"I look at him 2 days shy of 1 month and I still see how sad he is. (His eyes always look so sad) How he just wants to be in the same room with the dogs or us. How he doesn’t know how to play or chew on a bone. How he inhales his food like he’s never going to eat again. We had to get a bowl that has dividers in it to slow his eating down. We are giving him time and space to adjust at his own pace. We are not pushing him to do anything he does not want to do. If we need to get him a behaviorist for what ever reason we will. We will do what ever is required for him to be happy and healthy. The journey will continue…..Stay tuned."
