Theo: Found attacked, bloodied and drowning in the South Texas floods
Theo was found bloody and drowning due to the flooding in South Texas last week.
He was pulled out of the water just in time and was found bleeding from being attacked we think from a dog or other animal.
Initially, rescuers at Rescue Dogs Rock thought it was a neck wound but after he was rushed to the Vet Hospital and shaved and prepped for Emergency Surgery, it was discovered that his entire face had been mauled.
When they started surgery to close the wound, puss and blood starting pouring out of his little face, leading rescuers to believe that Theo was close to septic shock due the wound festering.
They suspect that little Theo was attacked and left in the rising water for days before he was found by the Good Samaritan.
Theo clearly and most definitely suffered for a period of time. It breaks our hearts to know that this innocent angel, so frail and weak was in such horrible pain for so long.
Right now Theo is very critical and could go into sepsis at any time. He is on an IV drip 24/7 receiving fluids, medication and heavy pain meds.
Theo needs our help today. With every purchase of a tee, hoodie, tote or drinkware, you can help save Theo.
RIP. Terrible Terrible News. Theo went into septic shock and passed away. We are heart broken beyond words Just yesterday he was up and walking. We really thought he was going to live Just so unfair. Rest In Peace Theo
