Lydia was hit by a car and is fighting for survival!
This is happening now! I know this is graphic but we must focus on saving Lydia’s life and nothing else. She was rushed to the emergency hospital right now. Lydia has been living, alone, abandoned and homeless on Dowdy Ferry in South Dallas, Texas for over two months! How awful is that. She has battle scars all over her body from fighting the war of homelessness.
A couple of days ago she was hit by a car, and left for dead on these unforgiving streets. She found her way back to underneath the trailer home where she had been living with a mangled hacked off leg that has slowly been decomposing, collecting dirt, gravel, rocks and sticks in the open wound. This is one of the worst wounds we have ever seen.
As can be seen in the photos there is only half of her leg that remains. Her other limbs have also sustained injuries, gashes, cuts, infected open wounds and we are unsure how she's possibly walking! She also has ulcers in her mouth which is from something toxic she ingested due to being starved to near death. This toxic substance most likely has effected her kidneys. She has been rushed to the Emergency Hospital for medical emergency care.
Lydia is only 30 lbs, infested with tick disease , is heartworm positive, anemic, dehydrated and emaciated. Through all of the pain and agony this precious angel has endured she remains sweet and loving to her rescuers.
We hope you will stand behind Rescue Dogs Rock decision to help and fight for Lydia and support this rescue by donating to Lydias emergency medical care. The estimate is over $2000 just for the first 12 hours. Rescue Dogs Rock is a licensed Non Profit Organization and rely solely on donations to continue their life-saving work. They cannot do this without us.
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 save little Lydia. With your help they can save her and give her a new life full of love and pain free.
UPDATE 8-1-17: Lydia had her leg amputated as there was just to much damage from the hit and she has been recovering for the past two weeks at their Texas vet partner post surgery. We shared a video of her walking today on Facebook. Her " battle scars" are healing , a direct result from a life of abuse and neglect. Lydia proves to be the sweetest girl , grateful to be alive. We are happy to report that she will make a full recovery as a tripod.
UPDATE 8-18-17: Lydia is healing up nicely and should be heading to NY soon. We cannot believe she's not adopted. Her story alone and what she has persevered should have people lining up to adopt this angel
