LEO'S EYE HAS BEEN INTENTIONALLY REMOVED. You read that right… he is a victim of torture and we need your help.
We are all in tears. It's horrible guys. I am not going to lie. To understand the abuse and neglect Leo has suffered then look at his photos and watch his video. Leo flinches when a human hand is raised to gently to pet him. Even a gentle rub sends shivers and cries down his body. He is physically and mentally traumatized.
This is absolutely disgusting. We are horrified at the abuse Leo has suffered. He was found running the streets in a rural area of Texas. He was bleeding from his eyes and face until he was picked up by animal control and brought to the nearest shelter.
Rescue Dogs Rock has committed to Leo and at this very moment he is being rushed to the Emergency Vet for life saving medical care. Jacki wrote "We are drowning in vet bills. We will not be able to continue on at this pace without financial help." Please help us save Leo. We will have an update soon.
Leo is suffering from a severe tick borne disease that had essentially sucked his blood out of his body. Leo will need an emergency blood transfusion to try and bring the platelet count up. Leo's eye cannot be addressed at this time and any additional loss of blood will most certainly kill Leo. Leo needs to remain sedated with little movement so that the open eye area does not rupture further. Please pray for Leo , he is very critical. We need your continued support! Your purchase today can help us save him!
Now we desperately need your help! We have partnered with Rescue Dogs Rock to create this week's animal saving products! Every shirt, hoodie and bracelet can make a difference today! With your purchase we can give this victim of torture a chance to see… a chance to be loved… and a chance to heal.
UPDATE: We wish we had positive news to report but Leo's medical status is much worse than we anticipated. Leo is literally fighting for his life right now. Blood work was conducted at RDR's Texas Vet partner and it was discovered that Leo's blood platelets are dangerously low with a count of 3 whereby 35 being the normal.
UPDATE 1-18-17 : IM ADOPTED!Look at Leo! If you remember his eye was intentionally removed! He was found running the streets in a rural area of Texas. He was bleeding from his eyes and face until he was picked up by animal control and brought to the nearest shelter. Thankfully Rescue Dogs Rock stepped up, saved him and now he was adopted!
