Rocky's owners left him at the vet to be euthanized with a hacked leg.
Ok friends we have a case that is tragic. A partner vet had reached out to Rescue Dogs Rock about a dog named Rocky. Rocky was brought into the vet's to be euthanized by his owner. We could not let that happen and agreed to help. What rescuers saw next was horrifying.
Rocky's leg has been hacked off. There are wounds indicative of "hacking" but they were never told what actually happened to him. All they were told is he needs to be euthanized. We know nothing else. We shudder to think how this happened. The saddest part is there is no saving the limb. He will need to have it amputated. They are investigating this case for abuse.
Now we are focused on saving Rocky. His condition is critical. He is in shock and in severe pain. Rescue Dogs Rock and emergency staff are pulling out all the stops to show Rocky there is hope. To show Rocky that there are good people here to save him. But we do need your help!
UPDATE: Rocky has successfully had his leg amputated. He looks so sad in these photos and he has every right to be. He lost his leg due it being hacked off. He endured horrific pain because of this, reeling and crying. His owners abandoned him and wanted him euthanized. No wonder Rocky is in shock both mentally and physically. Now that Rocky's healing begins, we only want what is best for him.

UPDATE 11-16-16 - ADOPTED!
Our baby Rocky has left the building! He found his forever home and has been adopted by an incredible family! WOW.... Tears of joy! We are thrilled to report that Rocky went to his forever home today. If you remember Rocky was brought into our NY vet partner by his owner. He was in shock and screaming in pain from his leg that was completely hacked off. The owners could not give an explanation as to how this horrific act occurred and just wanted him Euthanized. NOW HE IS SAVED because of your help! THANK YOU!
