MY SPINE IS SEVERED.

Spencer had his spine severed, was abused and found sitting in a shelter with blood dripping from his head. You won't believe what happened to him... Keep Reading : http://dogco.org/save-spencer-rdr

This is Spencer. When we first saw his video we all broke down in tears. He found his way to a SC shelter in heartbreaking condition. He has had his spine severed! The finder said he'd been abused which is pretty obvious by him being emaciated with wounds and scars of various ages and stages of healing. But, the big question, of course, is what happened to his back?!

Jaci O’Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock stated, “Why does he look bent in half? Why can't he stand properly? Did he escape an abusive situation only to be hit by car?! We will never know his full story, but Spencer's life didn't just go downhill today! He didn't come from anywhere good!”

He sat in the shelter with blood dripping down his face as he hobbled around in pain. And with all of those painful obstacles facing the Doberman, it didn’t stop him from being friendly kissing volunteers. He was rushed to the rescue’s partner specialty veterinarian, extensive X-rays and an examination by a neurologist determined the dog’s spine has been severed.

“The estimate for his surgery is $5700-7000! We took him because he was suffering & he deserved to live! It was the RIGHT thing to do, but we need your help NOW!” wrote RDR on their Facebook.

On top of his spine, his stomach is full of bones. The doctor's educated guess is that he escaped whatever hell he came from where he was clearly starved and abused. He was eating some dead animal (trying to survive) and got hit by a car (hit & run). Can you imagine? He is only a year old!


UPDATE 1-6-17 : We have good news ... Rescue Dogs Rock writes, “With happy tears steaming down our faces, we just got off the phone with Spencer's neurologist/surgeon and his 4.5 hour surgery went great! He did amazing under anesthesia and they were able to align his spine almost perfectly. Words cannot express how happy this makes us and how much we appreciate everyone who believed in Spencer, his extensive medical team of specialists and in us for being responsible for his care! If you know us at all, you know this is a huge responsibility that we do not take lightly. They expect Spencer to recover very well!”

Spencer has a long and difficult uphill battle ahead, but his short life of abuse and neglect are over. To say we need your help us an understatement. We have created this campaign with RDR to help raise the funds needed for Spencer’s spinal surgery. Please, if you can, purchase one of his tees, hoodies, dog apparel and bracelets to help Spencer in his recovery. We cannot save him without you.


UPDATE 1-10-17: RDR's incredible Spencer has stolen hearts around the world. Not one person on Spencer's medical team ever suggested to put him down, not one. They knew he was a perfect candidate for surgery and because #teamspencer rallied to help THANK YOU, Spence probably not a year old yet will go on to have an amazing life! He's up, getting physical therapy already as you can see. His spine was realigned almost perfectly and he's happy! He's eating and drinking and proud to be up again.

This dog, this miracle dog, inspired all of us, thousands of us, and will continue to do so. We are so proud of him, we cannot adequately describe how he makes us feel. He inspires us and makes us all want to be better, do better, do more. And he is a perfect example of NEVER GIVE UP HOPE!!! He has an amazing spirit and will to live and with all of the amazing people on his team, he will continue to inspire us!!!
