Blessing: Twine tied so tightly, she lost her paw
We do not know what exactly happened to Blessing and who did this to her, but she needs your help today.
This is what we do know. Blessing was found on Thanksgiving day in a Georgia ditch. She was curled up in a ball with twine wrapped around her legs. It was wrapped so tightly that it cut off her circulation and unfortunately her paw. As you can see in the photos, her entire paw is gone.
Blessing was dumped like garbage and just left to die. This is both sickening and heartbreaking at the same time. She’s emaciated and her other front leg is either deformed or broken. Rescue Dogs Rock, who is now caring for Blessing, will not know until more diagnostic tests are performed.
Blessing deserves so much better and Rescue Dogs Rock is determined to get her the help she needs.
The results are in for baby Blessings and we are heartbroken. Rescue Dogs Rock's vet says these injuries are 2-3 weeks old! Can you imagine this poor baby’s pain and suffering?! It causes feelings of rage and sadness at the same time.
Her x-rays have been sent to their orthopedic surgeon and because she only has 1 full front leg, it must be fixed, no matter what. The issue is infection now which must heal before any surgery can be done. Due to the severity and age of the injury, the surgeon believes she will require an external fixator. Right now RDR is dealing with the infection and will take it one day at a time. It’s amazing Blessing is alive! She is estimated to be only 10 months old. PLEASE HELP!
We have more bad news for Blessing. The surgeon has review her X-rays and she will need surgery. This surgery will be extensive and recovery won't be easy but this is the best option for saving her leg. We get so angry thinking about how some sicko watched as her leg was severed then dumped her in a ditch. Well that all changes now. But Rescue Dogs Rock still needs your support. With every purchase of a tee, hoodie, bracelet, blanket, candle or accessory, you can help save Blessing.
Beautiful Blessing goes in for surgery today to repair her badly fractured front leg. You’ll recall she was found curled up in a ball in a ditch in SC. Her other front leg is a stump (cut off by twine wrapped around it) that is receiving wound care and laser treatments. She will be fitted with a prosthetic when ready. Please help us raise the funds to get her custom prosthetic. We shudder to think of her senseless pain and suffering.Blessings surgery is at Animal Specialty Center in Yonkers tomorrow and will cost close to $4000! That is with a rescue discount. We ask that you consider purchasing one of our Animal Abuse Awareness shirts and hoodies and help rescuers continue to give Blessings the care she need and prosthetic limbs to walk again.
