Carlito: Hit and drug behind a car in Puerto Rico.
Carlito was hit and dragged by a car in Puerto Rico. He was spotted roaming the streets with a possible broken leg. Carlito was in pain, limping badly, he is obviously starving and his body looks like there are wounds. NYBC's contacts in Puerto Rico rescued him and took him immediately to the vet for medical attention!
Carlito's rear leg was AMPUTATED! His hind leg was broken at the joint and bone is exposed and since he never received care, puss and infection set in and skin granulated over the infected area and has penetrated the bone!
Despite his pain and what he was put through the doctor said that he is a kind, loving dog that gets along with the other animals, especially the cats! In all his pain, he allows them to examine and touch him. This a very special boy!
Carlito has endured the unthinkable! But you can help! Saving Carlito is as simple as wearing a tee! We have partnered with New York Bully Crew in creating this week's animal-saving shirt, long sleeve and hoodie design to help us raise funds needed for Carlito 's recovery. Please, if you are able, consider purchasing an item below to help save this baby's life! We can't do this without you!
