Roxie was strangled so badly that her eyes popped out are bleeding.

Roxie was strangled so badly that her eyes popped out are bleeding.

 

The shelter paperwork stated that Roxie was being strangled by a chain which was so tight around her neck that pliers were needed to cut off the chain. Roxie was literally being strangled to death. The blood coming out of Roxie's eyes is from the trauma she endured due to the strangulation and build up of pressure in the neck area. Since she was found as a "stray" at the moment there is no information on who the abuse is.

With tears streaming down my face I write this. Yes… What you are seeing in these photos and video is real and happening right now. Yes... that is blood dripping and oozing out of Roxie's eyes. We have created this campaign page to raise the funds RDR needs to save Roxie’s life.

Doctors do not know at this time whether Roxie has suffered brain damage or a brain hemorrhage. Our partners at Rescue Dogs Rock picked up Roxie from the Manhattan Animal Control early this morning and she has now been transported to their New York Emergency Vet Clinic for life saving intervention. This is bad you guys. She is on the strongest pain medication possible and first task is stabilizing her. She is in critical condition.

Roxie needs all of our prayers now to survive this horrific ordeal she has endured. Who would do such a horrific act against an innocent life like this. Intentionally strangling poor Roxie to near death. This is a sick person! Rescue Dogs Rock hopes they are not too late. We vow to give Roxie every possible medical intervention available and around the clock care.


UPDATE 8-13-17:

HELP! Sadly Roxy has taken a turn for the worse this morning with her tongue swelling. She had been improving and you can see her eyes look better, but she's been lost too much blood after being strangled by that awful chain and now needs a plasma transfusion. She bruises very easily and her blood is not clotting properly. She is at RDR's 24/7 specialty hospital and she started to choke on her tongue when she arrived and they rushed her into the back to start treating her. We desperately need your help.


UPDATE 8-18-17:

Well it's safe to say our beloved Roxy has won the hearts of thousands! Rescuers just spoke to her ER doctor and as you can see, she is doing better. She is even able to give kisses to her doctors. We have been sick with worry, so this is exactly the news we needed this morning! They are checking her blood levels now, but she would have died yesterday without these blood and plasma transfusions. 

She is not out of the woods because there is still bleeding and they need to get her blood to clot so the bleeding will stop. They still don't know if all of this is due to the trauma of strangulation due to that chain that had to be cut off her neck or if there is a secondary condition at play here also. She still needs your help!


UPDATE 8-21-17:

The past week with Roxy has been an emotional roller coaster! From the moment RDR picked her up, they have been in constant contact with her medical team trying to give all of you updates as we got them. At first she was doing better and then took a terrible turn for the worse on Thursday morning when she was rushed to our ER specialty hospital. By Friday night things started looking up and yesterday after a final plasma transfusion she was taken off her IV and put on oral Med's. Her bleeding had stopped and her clotting factors were back to normal! All her blood numbers were normal! Her medical team was thrilled with her progress and they kept her another 24 hours to watch her and make sure she was in good shape! This morning RDR got the call that she was doing amazing and ready for discharge to go to her medical foster home! We are beyond excited and proud of this little girl! Thank you to everyone who purchase Roxie shirts to help fund her recovery. I know she feels your love and support!
