Quinn was shot then dragged behind a car.
Some coward thought it would be funny to pull a senior dog behind their truck then shoot him with buckshot. Quinn came to Rescue Dogs Rock in horrible shape. This poor dog was found on the side of the road like this. This cowardice abuse was done intentionally. Sadly Quinn did not make it. He died in the arms of doctors.
The wounds Quinn had were horrific. He was swollen, infected and crawling with maggots. He was unable to stand or walk. He lie on the side of the road at the mercy of humans. Finally he was taken to the local shelter but, he was in horrible shape by then. Rescue Dogs Rock were contacted and of course said they would save little Quinn, not knowing just how bad his condition was.
He was rushed to an emergency clinic where a team of doctors were waiting. He's was first put in heavy pain meds via IV due to his horrific injuries and pain. Rescuers and staff knew he was in bad shape but made a promise to little Quinn that they would not stop until he was safe. Doctors worked for hours on Quinn, trying to save his life but he died just a few hours ago.
Jaci, co-founder of RDR said, "We just received the dreaded call that no one ever wants to hear. Quinn passed away this morning after a 15 minute seizure. His medical team is in shock as are we as he was up walking around yesterday and eating. They tried to revive Quinn, but sadly were not successful. The doctor did an immediate necropsy to try to make sense of his sudden passing and found worms or maggots in his brain. We are so sorry sweet boy that we were too late to save you. You deserved so much better! Rest In Peace & know so many people loved you & were fighting for you!"
