Duke has spent months on the streets with a broken spine.

Duke has spent months on the streets with a broken spine.

 

Duke has been surviving on the South Texas streets in this condition, paralyzed and dragging his back legs for months. He has deep scrapes, raw back paws and infected skin with no fur left from dragging his legs around Day after Day. People must have seen him but no-one stopped to help.

His injuries tell a story of despair, loneliness, desperation, survival with a strong and unwavering will to live like we have never seen. We can only assume he was VIOLENTLY Hit By A Car, crushing his back legs and left for Dead at some point months ago. Searching for help, while people passed him by, ignoring him.

It’s a miracle he has survived this long on the cold hearted streets. As suspected , X-rays show a broken spine. The emergency Vet stated that Duke has been in this very same condition for at least 2 months most likely much longer than that. His injuries are old, the scrapes and abrasions have calloused and he has no feeling in his back legs. His right leg and the muscle in that leg is completely constricted from months of being not used and he will need an amputation. The left hind leg is in tact and will need a few laser treatments to heal and close the wounds.

This is a huge commitment and financial undertaking. RDR absolutely cannot help Duke without your support. His care will cost in the thousands and that is just not the type of funds RDR has. This is a life or death situation. He will need surgery, a wheelchair and complete rehabilitation of his back end.

UPDATE 2-21-18

Duke Checking in from Callahan Road Animal Hospital in San Antonio where he has been for the last 2 weeks since we rescued him off the streets. He’s doing much better and will have his right hind leg amputated in 4 weeks. Duke will go to his foster home for the next month and rest up before he is stable for his amputation surgery. His spirits are high and he feels SAFE and at peace. Rescuers are working on getting him set up with a wheelchair.

To help save Duke please consider purchasing one of his shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. They make a beautiful gifts and give knowing you helped save this poor baby!
