Legend was literally ripped to shreds.

Legend was literally ripped to shreds.

 

I am so sorry for the graphic nature of this case but we desperately need your help. Brought into the animal shelter in shock, both ears ripped off and his front left leg not able to move, rescuers knew they had to act quick or Legend would die in that shelter.

It is unclear what set off a violent fight but no one could break up the fight until Animal Control arrived. Tragically two-year-old Legend suffered life-threatening injuries. Jackie Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC pleaded with supporters saying, “When we were asked to help Legend, we didn’t hesitate, didn’t contemplate the cost of his ongoing care, at that point, no one knew if he’d survive. His only hope was to get to a vet immediately, so that’s what we did,”

Rescuer rushed Legend to their Emergency Vet. Veterinarians hope to keep him stable and help him rest as comfortably as possible. He is currently on morphine for pain relief. “Legend was savagely attacked by two large strong dogs with the other two dogs standing above him – ripping him to shreds,” Jackie stated. “It’s beyond heartbreaking. Our only goal right now is to keep Legend stable.”

Less than 24-hours into this rescue, Legend’s veterinarian bills are as follows: RDR spent $457 at the first vet, $900 for his ER overnight and an estimate for the next week or so is expected to be $8000-$12,000! This is a huge financial burden and help is needed. We need to pull together now to try to save his precious life!


UPDATE 3-11-18: Because of his grievous injuries, had the rescue group not responded immediately, Legend would have been humanely euthanized. And Legend continues to fight although his condition is still listed as critical. Thursday evening’s update indicates how this dog is fighting so hard to live and those caring for him are going beyond the call:

“Legend is about the same & still critical. They turn his body every 4 hours. His wounds are oozing which they say is good. He remains on the strongest pain meds & antibiotics. Legend is fighting for his life & he deserves to live. He’s 2 years old & has his entire life ahead of him. He deserves to walk out of this hospital.”


UPDATE 3-15-18: Vets say he’s doing well. He’s eating and his feeding tube will be removed tomorrow. He’s had several procedures to debride his skin and wounds. He will finally go under general anesthesia Today to clean and close the worst of his wounds. Legend’s vet bills will likely top $20,000! Please help. He did not deserve what happened to him and he could not escape. We could not turn our backs on him and let him die.

To help save her please consider purchasing one of Legend’s shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. They make a beautiful gifts and give knowing you helped save this poor baby from horrible pain! We know this is hard to see but we believe every animal deserves a chance to live… a chance to be loved.


UPDATE 3-30-18: The vets worked hard to patch Legend back together — and they succeeded. He doesn’t have his ears anymore, but he’s in relatively good health and the vets don’t expect him to have ongoing health problems. A week after arriving at the clinic in a critical condition, Legend was able to go home with a medical foster named Fran.

Fran can’t get over how well Legend is doing, and how much love Legend has to offer. “She said he’s amazing,” rescuers wrote. “He loves to give hugs and he loves to give kisses. He’s out walking in the neighborhood, and he’s become a little bit of a celebrity out in Greenville, South Carolina.”

Legend doesn’t seem to have any fear of other dogs, which is quite remarkable. “People thought that he’d be terrified of dogs or not like dogs,” O’Sullivan said. “He has met dogs out in the neighborhood ... and he’s now met her dogs, and he’s absolutely fine with everybody he’s met.”
