Dumpling: Bait dog found with severed leg on a dirt road!
Dumpling was found late at night on a dirt road. She had one leg severed off with exposed skin and bone. Then we noticed the "noose" mark on her other back leg. That is unfortunately an indication of being tied up as a bait dog.
Somehow Dumpling got away… although not without injury. She is very anemic and the risks of amputation were too great due to the amount of blood loss she will need to endure during the operation. Rescuers authorized a blood transfusion as that is the only way to get her numbers up enough to do the surgery. She has had surgery to remove what was left of her rotting leg. The smell from her injuries were nauseating. The surgions think that her injuries and the definite line on her leg was caused by her leg being tied. They have seen similar injuries with both bait dogs (tied to things so they can fight back but not run). It really breaks my heart what this sweet girl has been through.
She is on 7 different meds a day. She is currently with one of our top notch medical fosters and is being taking care of inside the house where she is enjoying the air conditioning and away from this heat.
Dumpling's vet bills are mounting, but rescuers are doing everything in our power to make sure she has a chance at a great life. That's what we owe her as decent human beings... to undo the harm that was done. Troy Animal Rescue Project was formed to help dogs who don't have a chance without us. Dumpling is one of those dogs. Please send prayers and good thoughts.
We have partnered with Troy Animal Rescue Project to create this campaign and shirt designs to help raise the funds needed for Dumpling's recovery. Please, if you are able, consider purchasing an item below to help save her life!
