Who can imagine anyone hitting a 12-pound dog on the head so brutally that he suffered serious blunt force trauma, but a rural shelter in Georgia reached out to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC for help on Wednesday with a photo and a phone call. Few words were needed; tiny Charles was an emergency and needed immediate help.
Charles was transferred to the organization’s partner veterinarian in Georgia where he was given life-saving treatment According to Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, the defenseless little pup must have endured unfathomable pain. No one knows for how long:
“X-rays were taken and Charles’s eye was immediately removed. Our medical team discovered during surgery that this injury was much worse than it appeared to initially be, and in fact Charles also sustained severe head and jaw fractures as well, directly as a result of being hit with blunt force. Charles now needs a CT scan tomorrow to exactly pin point where the head and jaw fractures are located and then determine a plan for a second surgery.”
Since this animals was picked up by animal control there is no leads as to who the abuser is. On Thursday, surgeons removed Charles’ eye and the gentle, little dog is reported to be resting comfortably. CT Scans confirmed a skull fracture as well as a jaw fracture in two places. Veterinarians agree the injuries are consistent with Charles having been struck with intense force on his head. Plans are now being made for his second surgery.
