Josie: Worst embedded collar we have ever seen.
It was on Friday morning that a one-year-old Border Collie was spotted running along a rural South Carolina street dripping in her own blood, softly howling in pain and desperately seeking someone to help her. Fortunately a Good Samaritan spotted the suffering dog and brought her to the nearest shelter.
Calling this the "worst embedded collar we have ever seen," Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped forward to help the dog now dubbed Josie.
She arrived at RDR South Carolina vet partner and had surgery yesterday to close her horrible neck injury from being choked and almost decapitated by a double choke chain! Part of it had grown into her neck and almost severed her jugular vain. She was in such horrific shape, first responders were shocked she was alive!
On top of the embedded collar, this poor sweet dog was also covered in fleas & is emaciated. It's hard to tell with her coat, but Josie is a walking skeleton at only 20lbs. We don't know where she escaped from, but it was surely hell on earth for this poor dog! Horrible abuse & neglect!
I know these images are hard to see but PLEASE I cannot do this without you. I, again, am begging for you to help. With one simple shirt you can give this tortured soul a second chance at life every abused and tortured animal deserves.
