Lexington has been treated like trash his entire life.
Meet Lexington, RDR’s latest save from the NYC Animal Control Center, a cruelty case with no one to go after because poor he was "a stray”. Here is his medical write up so you can truly understand what this poor senior has endured. We are horrified.
Lexington is at least 12 years old. He has been starved for quite some time. His tiny body is nothing but skin and bones. His BCS is a 1 out of 9 (which is the worst possible). There is evidence that he has been physically abused. He has cataracts, possibly blind and discharge from his eyes. It doesn't end there. Lexington is suffering from severe periodontal disease and oligodontia. He is missing many teeth and the teeth that he does have are rotten and covered in severe tartar.
He has a left sided heart murmur with thrill. Doctors suspect he has degenerative mitral valve disease. Now lets get to his fur. He has some of the worst severely matted fur doctors have seen. It is incasing 2 of his limbs and extending around the dorsum and ventrum with urine and feces in the matted fur. He has wounds on his legs associated with scabbed areas and matted fur and very long overgrown nails. His muscle mass is completely wasted away. He is so weak he cannot walk on his own. I know this list of medically issues is extensive but we have made a promise to this baby that we will not stop until he is safe!
This is a dog that was treated like a piece of garbage for a VERY LONG TIME! There is no excuse for this. Did Lex have good days? Was he ever loved? Did he ever matter to anyone? All we can do now is try to get him as healthy as possible and make however long he has left filled with love and kindness.
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with RDR to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed to give Lex a second chance. With your help they can save him and give him a new life full of love and pain free.
UPDATE 8-5-17: Lexington was adopted! He is getting tons of love, kisses and snuggles with his new mommy! Thank you to everyone who purchased to help save this little nuggets life! This is just another reason why we love our partners at Rescue Dogs Rock. This is the power behind a Hendrick & Co. animal saving tee, hoodie and tote!
