I AM SO ANGRY. I wish I had better news for you but I don't. I am sorry. I really don't know what to say. It's times like these that test our strength and resolve. I have some words from Liam's rescuers that I want to share with you.
Rescue Dogs Rock wrote: "Today Our Precious Liam passed away. He tried so hard to fight and survive from the abuse and neglect he suffered. We really thought he was getting better, we thought he was going to survive."
Today his medical condition spiraled and fluid and bacteria built up in his chest causing him to become septic. We didn't want to listen or hear this news, we wanted to continue fighting hoping for a miracle but it was determined that Liam was suffering and it was time to let go.
RDR writes "We had done everything medically possible for him but still it was not enough to save this precious angel. We are so angry and defeated that we couldn't do more. We are angry at his abusers. Angry that our laws in this country for our companion animals are not stricter or even exist. This did not happen overnight."
Liam had old fractures along with the new injuries. Please, if you see abuse, report it. Be their voice. He didn't deserve this. He never even got to see his 1st birthday.
Jacki write: "You fought very hard baby. You did so good and there is nothing we wouldn't have done to save you. We are so sorry for what you went through. You were so strong. Your body just could not fight any more and the hardest thing we ever have to do is say good-bye. We love you and promise to do everything we can to save others just like you. Your life mattered."
Rescue Dogs Rock is committed to the investigation against Liam's abusers and will keep us updated. For now we all need time to mourn.
I know this is hard. He had thousands of people from all over the world fighting for him but I can stress to you enough how much support rescuers still need right now. Although he is gone Rescue Dogs Rock still have incredible vet bills that have piled up in their fight to save Liam. Thousands of dollars spent to try and save his life after his family did nothing. Those don't go away just because he passed on. PLEASE… Please still support Rescue Dogs Rock. You can either purchase a tee, hooodie or bracelet in Liam's honor below OR you can donate directly HERE. Our souls and hearts are in pieces. I don't know what else to say here. I am just crying. I love you Liam. We all love you.
This is Liams original story...
Liam was brought to the ER vet with two shattered limbs, severely emaciated and with pressure sores all over his body. When asked his family said its from their children dropping him... This just doesn't add up. They left the ER vet with pain medication and promised to take him to their family vet. But they never did.
They waited another full 2 WEEKS. They went back to the ER vet and admitted they only gave this poor horribly injured puppy 1 dose of pain meds, 1 DOSE! So, he somehow suffered severe trauma in the home, went through two weeks of suffering in the home and returned to the ER vet last night emaciated with pressure sores, low blood sugar, dehydrated and near death. And the family decided they wanted him Euthanized. BUT RESCUERS SAID NO!
