Buster has been suffering for 5 days with no care!

 

The options presented to Rescue Dogs Rock yesterday were to euthanize Buster or to fight for his life. They chose to fight for him. He deserved that chance and we hope you agree. His wounds are not fresh and some parts are necrotic and infected. Despite how horrible he must feel, this sweet boy is kissing everyone in sight. We hope it is not too late.

His horribly injured and infected back leg was amputated. As it was a source of infection and causing sepsis, there was no time to wait. Because of free gas in his abdomen, they also had to do an exploratory surgery, but luckily nothing serious was found! Buster has had blood plasma transfusions. The wounds in the other photo on his underside are bite wounds and necrotic skin that had to be debrided and cleaned. The dead skin affects his private parts so he's on heavy antibiotics and pain meds and his medical team is watching closely.

He has 2 vacuum bandages on and his case is not unlike Phoebe's for those that followed her (dragged behind a car in SC and was found near death w very similar injuries). Buster's injuries are approx. 5 days old and we have no idea what happened to him. The shelter thought maybe hit by a car, but he has no broken bones and does have infected bite wounds so a car obviously didn't do that. The wound on his thigh was horrific and massive. We don't see how a car would have caused it with no broken bones. The bite marks on his underside and private parts tell a different story; we just don't know what. We do know that Buster suffered greatly. He suffered alone with no pain meds for days. How heartbreaking.

Timing is critical for Rescue Dogs Rock’s surgeon to go in and remove the dead, necrotic tissue, amputate Buster's leg and hopefully there will be enough skin to close the gaping hole. There is no other option.


UPDATE 2-7-17: Our amazing Buster had ER surgery Friday night to amputate a horribly mangled and infected back leg. To treat and debride other injuries and infected bite wounds on his underside. This sweet boy had lived with horrific wounds and no medical care or pain meds for about 5 days!On Friday night, rescuer’s options were to put him down or fight! Their choice is obvious. He was kissing everyone in sight and they could not quit on him. Yes it is very expensive, but how do you put a price on a life? It's not Buster's fault, why should he pay with his life, he's suffered enough and now lost a leg. He's got a long road back but will make it with your help! 

We have created this page to help RDR raise the funds needed to save Buster’s life. Please will you help us? With your help this innocent victim can survive! Get your Buster shirt, hoodie, tote bag or bracelet and give him the second chance at life he deserves! With your help I know we can save him.
