Pierre: Tossed from a car after he would not fight other dogs!
On Friday a heartless culprit tossed him from a moving car in a rural part of Kershaw County, South Carolina. According to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, who stepped forward and rescued the dog from the local shelter, it is believed he may have been involved in a dog fighting operation, and was tossed from the car because he refused to fight. The gaping injury on his front leg is consistent with having occurred during a dog fight.
He was named Pierre and has been described as extremely sweet and mellow – obviously no candidate for a dog fighting ring.
"Whoever tossed him out of that car has no idea the favor they did him," stated Jackie O'Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. "He was saved from a horrible life; (dog fighting) of that we have no doubt. Please keep Pierre in your thoughts, and pray for his recovery both physically and mentally."
Pierre suffered a huge open gash under his arm and another lower on his leg. He was rushed in to surgery to clean and repair these gruesome wounds. They also discovered he was infested with at least 50 ticks!
