Dog Needs Help After Miraculously Surviving Being Thrown Off A Bridge

Comments Off on Dog Needs Help After Miraculously Surviving Being Thrown Off A Bridge

“Words fail me, if you don’t want your pet hand it in to a shelter, unless your scared they will be after you for abusing the pet; if you’ve done nothing wrong, there is no shame in admitting you can’t cope! Better that than end the life of an innocent that gave it’s all just to love you, despite how treated. Somebody knows more about this & I would beg that you please contact the police if there is anything you know, if a pet describing the one below has suddenly disappeared from your neighbourhood; or someone has told you they surrendered the animal. Please this person needs to pay for his actions, who ever it is, they must be a little un-balanced to do this to a dog! Didn’t anyone see the incident from the bridge?, please think back, did you see someone behaving strangely with a dog on the bridge?? the video link is below, sorry I couldn’t get it to play in WP.”

Lindey is alive today thanks to the fast actions of two animal lovers.

Witnesses say the German shepherd was thrown from a bridge in Kansas City falling over forty feet.

Poor Lindey Thrown from bridge

The couple rushed the dog to the veterinarian and now they are trying to raise the funds to get her the surgery she needs.

A horse show was being held at the Hale Arena in Kansas City when witnesses saw a 2-year-old German shepherd come flying off the bridge and land in a snow bank, she appeared to have been thrown. Although one witness called for help, no one rushed to her aid until two horse show attendees pulled up. The two animal lovers didn’t hesitate to come to her aid, putting her in their car and getting her to the vet as fast as they could.

Thanks to the quick actions of her rescuers Lindey was at the vet within 30 minutes of her fall. “That made a huge difference,” said Dr. Smith. Her injuries were severe. “Obviously there was a great deal of trauma. She was in shock.”

Lindey is lucky to even be alive after her horrific fall. “When dogs fall that far they assume an orientation in space where front legs are coming down first, followed by their head,” said veterinarian Dr. Richard Smith. “We call that a 3-point landing and it’s not very pleasant, when front legs give out and then their chin hits the ground and causes damage to their mouth as well.” Lindey’s rescuers believe her landing in a snow bank very well saved her life. Though Lindey is not out of the woods yet.

Lindey will need complicated and expensive surgery to repair both of her front legs and damage she sustained to her teeth. The surgery along with follow-up care could cost $10,000. Lindey also sustained some internal injuries“She had some blood in her stomach, some compression in her lungs,” said Dr. Smith.  Her internal injuries seem to be stabilizing and will be monitored for another week or two to make sure there is no residual internal damage.

Approximately $4,000 has been raised to date to help Lindey.

UPDATE: Wonky The Puppy Is Walking Tall After Physio Regime To Straighten Her Legs

Comments Off on UPDATE: Wonky The Puppy Is Walking Tall After Physio Regime To Straighten Her Legs

“Remember I wrote about Wonky a few days ago? Someone abandoned her because of her condition? What they didn’t know is that she had a guardian angel watching over her! Now there are no need for words, the video tells it all. I’m so thrilled that in such a short time this little girl is walking normally….God bless her & all those at the Dogs Trust who changed her life completely. She has so much love to give…whoever ends up adopting this little angel will never regret it! I hope those that abandoned her, receive the karma they so deserve…very soon!”

An 11-week-old puppy has been saved from a life of disability by physiotherapists after her front legs failed to develop.

5:39PM GMT 28 Feb 20133 Comments
The puppy, which was nicknamed ‘Wonky’ due to her bent forelegs, has learned to walk again after two weeks intense physiotherapy.
Her rare condition was caused by her front leg tendons not developing properly after she was separated from her mother at an early age.
The Staffordshire bull terrier cross was found wandering on the streets of Bradford after being abandoned.
Staff at the Leeds Dogs Trust straighten Juliet‘s legs 30 times a day, to strengthen her muscles.

Who will give a home to Wonky? Abandoned Puppy Left Disabled By Poor Diet Needs A Loving Owner

Comments Off on Who will give a home to Wonky? Abandoned Puppy Left Disabled By Poor Diet Needs A Loving Owner

“OMG…how could anyone resist that sweet, beautiful, innocent face? I would have her tomorrow; if I wasn’t disabled myself! I’m sure there is a special person out there who can give this little girl the help, love &  support she needs. Hopefully they can get her back on her front legs, walking, by carrying on with the physiotherapy she is getting at the centre; ” The Dogs Trust” will help subsidise payment for her physiotherapy fee’s!”

“Please, don’t just want her because of her cute looks now. She will grow up, like any other dog, so one must be prepared for all eventualities & face them head on! Remember, owning any dog is a big commitment, they are for life & they should be loved as part of the family…not just some grass ornament or cheap burglar alarm! It would be tragic if this special little girl got dumped at the local pound when her cute puppy stage is gone & the novelty of having her has worn off!”

“Just as an afterthought, this pup isn’t one you could forget in a hurry; it was found wandering the streets! So if anybody know’s where it came from, let the police or Dogs Trust know. There could there be more Wonkey’s that have been thrown out, due to their deformity’s; I certainly wouldn’t put it passed someone to abandon them; if they thought they couldn’t make money from them!”

  • The 11-week-old was dumped on a street and developed deformed front legs
  • Charity says she needs care, love and attention from a new owner
  • But they fear people may be put off because of her ‘un-traditional looks’
  • Wonky has condition which means her legs go inwards and can’t extend

This is Wonky, a poor puppy left with a heartbreaking disability after being dumped on the street as a baby, who now needs a new home where she will be loved.

Tragic: Wonky was found just dumped on the street and has been left badly disabled but those who look after her say despite her problems she is a gem

The eleven-week-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross was given her unusual name because of severe problems with her malformed front legs developed because she was separated from her mother.

Experts say she desperately needs care and attention after being afflicted with horrific joint ‘knuckling’ that has left her unable to walk very well.

Wonky was found wandering the streets as a stray and was brought to Dogs Trust by a member of the public a fortnight ago.

With two underdeveloped front legs and her ‘un-traditional looks’, staff are worried she may struggle to find a new home.

Amanda Sands, Manager at Dogs Trust Leeds, said: ‘She’s had a very tough start in life. She was taken from her mother too early and was then having to fend for herself on the streets at just nine-weeks old.

‘She isn’t a traditionally pretty pooch but she’s a lovely girl with a great character.

‘We really hope people can see beyond appearances and someone can give her the fresh start she deserves – a new home where she’ll be loved and cared for.

Plea: The Dogs Trust are hoping to re-home the cute dog but fear her ‘un-traditional look’ and disability will put people off

Wonky is suffering from an extreme case of the condition known as knuckling of the carpal joints.

This is caused by contraction of the tendons which prevents the wrist joint from extending fully and means her front feet bend inwards because her tendons are too short.

‘It’s such a sad case because this is completely preventable if only she’d had the right love and care,’ Ms Sands said today.

‘She has not had the right supplements to enable her to grow properly and so her front legs are too weak.

‘We don’t know everything about her background but we think that she was removed from her mother too early and was then abandoned. She has not had the right nutrition and a poor diet has meant her front legs are underdeveloped.’

Since arriving at the centre on February 7, brave Wonky is already showing signs of improvement after receiving regular physiotherapy treatment to straighten her legs.

Ms Sands said: ‘Physiotherapy will really help to strengthen her muscles. We have to stretch her legs into a straight position 30 times twice a day. Hopefully in time her legs will begin to straighten to aid her walking.

‘She will need regular trips to the specialist vet to keep a track of her  progress.

Poor Wonky: The eleven-week-old puppy, whose front legs failed to develop properly after she was taken from her mother too early, needs a new loving home

‘At the minute she is able to walk but she rests her weight on her front joints as her legs are bent.

With the right treatment, she will hopefully be able to live a normal life and  do all the things a puppy should be able to enjoy.

‘At the minute, she struggles to run and can only be taken on very short walks  which is very sad to see.’

Staff at the centre are wanting to re-home Wonky and are looking for owners who  can continue her physiotherapywith costs supplemented by Dogs Trust.

It is the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and cares for over 16,000 stray and abandoned dogs each year through its network of 18 Rehoming Centres across the UK and one in Dublin. “I am a member of “Dogs Trust” as I think they do a great job of re-homing animals.”

Amanda Francis spokesman for the charity said: ‘Usually physical deformity is the result of unscrupulous breeders or they haven’t been properly looked after and most of the time it’s something that is completely preventable.’

Emotional Reunion For A Man And His Best Friend

Comments Off on Emotional Reunion For A Man And His Best Friend

“I think it’s about time for some good news, especially on Valentines Day…A man & his beloved dog, reunited…think I’m gonna cry!!!”

It’s been a long year for Robert Moreland, but even longer for his dog Blackjack.  The German shepherd was stolen from Moreland’s truck while he was at Home Depot 10 months ago, and Moreland was devastated.   He and Blackjack had been together since the dog was a pup, and now they have finally been reunited.

When Moreland discovered that Blackjack had been taken he called police, but they never found him.  “It hurt me to my heart,” Moreland said, a long time dog lover who did not want to give up the search despite health concerns of his own.  Moreland has suffered from PTSD ever since retiring from the Air Force in 1981 after 20 years of service, and he credits Blackjack with helping him cope.

Finally he gave in and did get another dog, named Rommel, though he continued to pray for Blackjack.  “I had given up,” Moreland said. “Not because I wanted to, but because I know evil people are in this world, and they don’t care.”  Then the miracle happened.

Eric Weinberger, a volunteer at Big Dog Ranch Rescue, got a phone call from a Palm Beach resident who had been feeding a stray dog for several months.

 Weinberger came and after several failed attempts was able to catch the dog, which the microchip revealed to be Blackjack.  Weinberger fears that Blackjack was used in dog fighting.  He was found with a green plastic collar around his neck and a piece of meat hung from a chain. “We’ll never know what they were using him for,” said Weinberger, “But the only reason he would have that collar on him is if he was used as a bait dog.”

Big Dog Ranch Rescue called Moreland to deliver the news and the pair had an emotional reunion on Valentine’s Day.  Blackjack went straight to Moreland and curled up beside him, as if no time had passed.  Blackjack had surgery to treat his wounds on Friday, and should be able to go back home on Sunday.  “I was so pleased (to find him),” Moreland said, and he expressed his gratitude to the kind people at Big Dog Rescue for bringing his boy home.

66 Very Interesting Facts About Wolves

Comments Off on 66 Very Interesting Facts About Wolves

“This is a must read for every wolf lover or those with a general interest. Having just read this myself, I thought I just had to share it! I only knew 4 or 5 facts…. it is extremely interesting & very insightful. Like, did you know that a Greek Scholar, said wolf dung could be used to treat both colic and cataracts; yuk! Did you know Wolves were once the most widely distributed land predator  …the only place they couldn’t thrive were true deserts & rainforest!! Interesting or what?? 

66  Very Interesting Facts About Wolves; I bet you didn’t know!!

  1. In order for a new wolf cub to urinate, its mother has to massage its belly with her warm tongue.e
  2. The Vikings wore wolf skins and drank wolf blood to take on the wolf’s spirit in battle. They also viewed real wolves as battle companions or hrægifr (corpse trolls).f
  3. The earliest drawings of wolves are in caves in southern Europe and date from 20,000 B.C.b
  4. Wolves do not make good guard dogs because they are naturally afraid of the unfamiliar and will hide from visitors rather than bark at them.g
  5. The autoimmune disease Systemic Lupus Erythmatosus (SLE), or lupus, literally means wolf redness, because in the eighteenth century, physicians believed the disease was caused by a wolf bite.f
  6. Wolves are the largest members of the Canidae family, which includes domestic dogs, coyotes, dingoes, African hunting dogs, many types of foxes, and several kinds of jackals.a
  7. Wolves run on their toes, which helps them to stop and turn quickly and to prevent their paw pads from wearing down.e
  8. Wolves have about 200 million scent cells. Humans have only about 5 million. Wolves can smell other animals more than one mile (1.6 kilometers) away.b
  9. A wolf pup’s eyes are blue at birth. Their eyes turn yellow by the time they are eight months old.e
  10. Wolves tend to mate for life
  11. A male and female that mate usually stay together for life. They are devoted parents and maintain sophisticated family ties.c
  12. Wolf gestation is around 65 days. Wolf pups are born both deaf and blind and weigh only one pound.d
  13. Under certain conditions, wolves can hear as far as six miles away in the forest and ten miles on the open tundra.a
  14. Wolves were once the most widely distributed land predator the world has ever seen. The only places they didn’t thrive were in the true desert and rainforests.e
  15. Among true wolves, two species are recognized: Canis lupus (often known simply as “gray wolves”), which includes 38 subspecies, such as the gray, timber, artic, tundra, lobos, and buffalo wolves. The other recognized species is the red wolf (Canis rufus), which are smaller and have longer legs and shorter fur than their relatives. Many scientists debate whether Canis rufus is a separate species.e
  16. Immense power is concentrated in a wolf’s jaw. It has a crushing pressure of nearly 1,500 pound per square inch (compared with around 750 for a large dog). The jaws themselves are massive, bearing 42 teeth specialized for stabbing, shearing, and crunching bones. Their jaws also open farther than those of a dog.g
  17. The North American gray wolf population in 1600 was 2 million. Today the population in North America is approximately 65,000. The world population is approximately 150,000.b
  18. A hungry wolf can eat 20 pounds of meat in a single meal, which is akin to a human eating one hundred hamburgers.b
  19. A wolf pack may contain just two or three animals, or it may be 10 times as large.e
  20. Though many females in a pack are able to have pups, only a few will actually mate and bear pups. Often, only the alpha female and male will mate, which serves to produce the strongest cubs and helps limit the number of cubs the pack must care for. The other females will help raise and “babysit” the cubs.a
  21. Lower-ranking males do not mate and often suffer from a condition of stress and inhibition that has been referred to as “psychological castration.” Lower-ranking females are sometimes so afraid of the alpha female that they do not even go into heat.d
  22. An average size wolf produces roughly 1.2 cubic inches of sperm.b
  23. Wolves evolved from an ancient animal called Mesocyon, which lived approximately 35 million years ago. It was a small dog-like creature with short legs and a long body. Like the wolf, it may have lived in packs.g
  24. Wolves can swim distances of up to 8 miles (13 kilometers) aided by small webs between their toes.b
  25. Between 1883 and 1918, more than 80,00 wolves were killed in Montana for bounty.d
  26. Adolph Hitler (whose first name means “lead wolf”) was fascinated by wolves and sometimes used “Herr Wolf” or “Conductor Wolf” as an alias. “Wolf’s Gulch” (Wolfsschlucht), “Wolf’s Lair” (Wolfschanze), and “Werewolf” (Wehrwolf) were Hitler’s code names for various military headquarters.f
  27. In the 1600s, Ireland was called “Wolf-land” because it had so many wolves. Wolf hunting was a popular sport among the nobility, who used the Irish wolfhound to outrun and kill wolves. The earliest record of an Irish wolfhound dates from Roman times in A.D. 391.f
  28. Recent scientists suggest that labeling a wolf “alpha” or “omega” is misleading because “alpha” wolves are simply parent wolves. Using “alpha” terminology falsely suggests a rigidly forced permanent social structure.c
  29. Although wolves are usually afraid of humans, they will respond to human howls
  30. Biologists have found that wolves will respond to humans imitating their howls. The International Wolf Center in Minnesota even sponsors “howl nights” on which people can howl in the wilderness and hope for an answering howl.b
  31. Wolves have historically been associated with sexual predation. For example, Little Red Riding Hood, who wears a red cape that proclaims her sexual maturity, is seduced off the moral path by a wolf. The sex link endures in common clichés, such as describing a predatory man as “a wolf” or a sexy whistle as a “wolf whistle.”f
  32. Biologists describe wolf territory as not just spatial, but spatial-temporal, so that each pack moves in and out of each other’s turf depending on how recently the “no trespassing” signals were posted.d
  33. The Greek god Apollo is sometimes called Apollo Lykios, the wolf-Apollo, and was associated with the wind and sun. In Athens, the land surrounding the temple of Apollo became known as the Lyceum, or the “wolf skin.”f
  34. In 1927, a French policeman was tried for the shooting of a boy he believed was a werewolf. That same year, the last wild wolves in France were killed.f
  35. When Europeans arrived in North America, wolves became the most widely hunted animal in American history and were nearly extinct by the beginning of the twentieth century. The U.S. Federal government even enacted a wolf eradication program in the Western states in 1915.a
  36. Dire wolves (canis dirus) were prehistoric wolves that lived in North America about two million years ago. Now extinct, they hunted prey as large as woolly mammoths.e
  37. A wolf can run about 20 miles (32 km) per hour, and up to 40 miles (56 km) per hour when necessary, but only for a minute or two. They can “dog trot” around 5 miles (8km) per hour and can travel all day at this speed.g
  38. The smallest wolves live in the Middle East, where they may weigh only 30 pounds. The largest wolves inhabit Canada, Alaska, and the Soviet Union, where they can reach 175 pounds.e
  39. Wolves howl to contact separated members of their group, to rally the group before hunting, or to warn rival wolf packs to keep away. Lone wolves will howl to attract mates or just because they are alone. Each wolf howls for only about five seconds, but howls can seem much longer when the entire pack joins in.c
  40. A light-reflecting layer on a wolf’s eye called the tapetum lucidum (Latin for “bright tapestry”) causes a wolf’s eyes to glow in the dark and may also facilitate night vision. While a wolf’s color perception and visual acuity maybe be inferior to a human’s, a wolf’s eyes are extremely sensitive to movement.d
  41. Ravens, or “wolf-birds,” seem to form social attachments with wolves
  42. Where there are wolves, there are often ravens (sometimes known as “wolf-birds”). Ravens often follow wolves to grab leftovers from the hunt—and to tease the wolves. They play with the wolves by diving at them and then speeding away or pecking their tails to try to get the wolves to chase them.g
  43. In ancient Rome, barren women attended the Roman festival Lupercalia (named for the legendary nursery cave of Romulus and Remus) in the hopes of becoming fertile.f
  44. According to Pliny the Elder, a first-century Greek scholar, wolf teeth could be rubbed on the gums of infants to ease the pain of teething. He also reported that wolf dung could be used to treat both colic and cataracts.f
  45. The Aztecs used wolf liver as an ingredient for treating melancholy. They also pricked a patient’s breast with a sharpened wolf bone in an attempt to delay death.f
  46. During the Middle Ages, Europeans used powdered wolf liver to ease the pain of childbirth and would tie a wolf’s right front paw around a sore throat to reduce the swelling. Dried wolf meat was also eaten as a remedy for sore shins.f
  47. The Greeks believed that if someone ate meat from a wolf-killed lamb, he or she ran a high risk of becoming a vampire.f
  48. During the reign of Edward the Confessor, which began in 1042, a condemned criminal was forced to wear a wolf-head mask and could be executed on a “wolf’s head tree” or the gallows where a wolf might be hanged next to him.f
  49. Werewolf (wer “man” + wulf “wolf”) trials (which can be distinguished from witchcraft trials) led to hundreds of executions during the 1600s. Men, women, and children—many of whom were physically and mentally handicapped—were put to death.f
  50. The Cherokee Indians did not hunt wolves because they believed a slain wolves’ brothers would exact revenge. Furthermore, if a weapon were used to kill a wolf, the weapon would not work correctly again.f
  51. In approximately the year 800, Charlemagne founded a special wolf-hunting force, the Louveterie, which remained active until 1789. It was reactivated in1814, and the last French wolf was killed in 1927.a
  52. Britain’s King Edgar imposed an annual tax of 300 wolf skins on Wales. The Welsh wolf population was quickly exterminated.a
  53. In 1500, the last wolf was killed in England. In 1770, Ireland’s last wolf was killed. In 1772, Denmark’s last wolf was killed.a
  54. After hearing of “frightening spirits” in the woods with human features that walked on four legs, Reverend Singh in 1920 discovered a den with two cubs and two human girls, one around age 7 or 8, the other around 2. After being brought back to “civilization,” the younger one died within a year. Recently, authors have questioned the validity of this story as modern knowledge has revealed that wolf-like behavior is often seen in autistic or abused children.d
  55. Sextus Placitus, in his fifth-century B.C. Medicina de quadrupedibus (Medicinals from Animals), claims that sleeping with a wolf’s head under one’s pillow would cure insomnia.f
  56. In 1934, Germany became the first nation in modern times to place the wolf under protection. Influenced by Friedrich Nietzsche’s (1844-1900) and Oswald Spengler’s (1880-1936) belief that natural predators possessed more vigor and virility than their prey, the protection was probably more for an “iconic” wolf than the actual wolf, particularly since the last wolves in Germany were killed in the middle of the nineteenth century.f
  57. Wolves are one of the few animals that communicate using a great range of facial expressions
  58. Unlike other animals, wolves have a variety of distinctive facial expressions they use to communicate and maintain pack unity.c
  59. The Japanese word for wolf means “great god.”f
  60. Between 6,000 and 7,000 wolf skins are still traded across the world each year. The skins are supplied mainly by Russia, Mongolia, and China and are used mainly for coats.a
  61. In India, simple wolf traps are still used. These traps consist of a simple pit, disguised with branches or leaves. The wolves fall in and people then stone them to death.a
  62. Wolves were the first animals to be placed on the U.S. Endangered Species Act list in 1973.a
  63. John Milton’s famous poem “Lycidas” derives its title from the Greek for “wolf cub,” lykideus.f
  64. In the Harry Potter universe, werewolf Remus Lupin’s name is directly related to the Latin word for wolf (lupus) and suggests an association with one of the founders of Rome, Remus, who was suckled by a wolf. The dual nature of Lupin’s werewolf nature suggests that in the Potter realm, there are two sides to everything.f
  65. The last wolf in Yellowstone Park was killed in 1926. In 1995, wolves were reintroduced and, after just ten years, approximately 136 wolves now roam the Park in about 13 wolf packs.b
  66. Currently, there are about 50,000 wolves in Canada; 6,500 in Alaska; and 3,500 in the Lower 48 States. In Europe, Italy has fewer than 300; Spain around 2,000; and Norway and Sweden combined have fewer than 80. There are about 700 wolves in Poland and 70,000 in Russia.b

This video is so important because of the cool new trick I came up with while sitting with Rosie under a truck for more than an hour. Please share it with everybody you know… it can help save the lives of so many.
Always remember to be VERY CAREFUL when approaching puppies – especially when you don’t know how the mom would behave. It can be dangerous.

“Some of my favourite quotes; reminding us all, how sentient beings need the same love, support & respect as any human does! Just because they are voiceless, does not mean animals are without emotion!” If only all fellow humans could understand this concept; what a wonderful world it would be, for all!!”

We must never allow the voice of humanity within us to be silenced. It is humanity’s sympathy with all creatures that first makes us truly human.

Albert Schweitzer

Any religion not based on a respect for life is not a true religion. Until he extend his circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures, man will not himself find peace.

-Albert Schweitzer

A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life he is able to assist and shrinks from injuring anything that lives.
-Albert Schweitzer

“We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace.” – Albert Schweitzer

You cannot do a kindness too soon, because you never know how soon it will be too late.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.

“WTF…WHY, why would anyone do such a thing? Dear God, I am shaking with rage whilst tears run down my face both in sadness & anger. Such a beautiful dog…who ever did this needs a taste of his own medicine…sick, heartless, cold, evil FXXXXXG BASTARDS!!  Watch the video below, look into Bucks face & eyes, imagine how much pain he must be in; yet he all he wants is a cuddle!!. 

CONROE, Texas – A dog is being treated for gunshot wounds in Conroe after a shocking case of animal cruelty.

Buck, shot several times, tied up in a bag & left for dead!!

Someone shot the dog several times in the face with a shotgun, tied it up in a garbage bag and left it for dead.

Someone spotted the trash bag moving on Bulldog Lane in Conroe Saturday morning. They ripped it open and the bloody dog stumbled out and collapsed.

Tami Augustyn took the dog to an emergency clinic where veterinarians discovered buckshot lodged in both eyes, his mouth, gums, shoulders and neck.

They’re calling the mixed breed dog Buck and say he’s making a remarkable recovery.

Vets say Buck’s prognosis is good, but the injuries to his eyes may cause permanent blindness.

This isn’t the first time Augustyn has rescued a dog in trouble.

“Dogs love unconditionally. You’ll never find anyone or anything that loves you like a dog. Why would you injure something like that? I don’t understand,” she told Montgomery County Police Reporter Scott Engle.

Augustyn said Buck’s medical bills will likely top $5,000 and she’s trying to raise money to help pay for them.

Facebook page has been set up for donations and to follow Buck’s progress.

010613 DOG SHOT , TIED IN TRASH BAG TIED TO FENCE LEFT FOR DEAD

Published on 6 Jan 2013

Story shortly, a dog is found in the Conroe area in a trash bag tied to a fence and shot. Left for dead in near freezing temperatures.

A dog has been found sealed up in a contractor’s garbage bag after being shot with a shotgun in the face and left to die. 

A good Samaritan, Tami Augustyn, was notified by a friend that a dog had been tied up in a garbage bag and left to die along Bulldog Lane in Conroe, Texas. Tami immediately picked up the severely wounded dog and took him to Animal Emergency Clinic in Conroe, Texas where the dog is being evaluated and stabilized until they close on Monday, January 7th at 8am in which he will be transported to another vet. Under initial evaluation, the dog has been shot in the face, including in both eyes and inside his mouth, with birdshot fragments. This has left the dog either temporarily or permanently blind and will require a specialist to evaluate his eyes. The dog also needs x-rays of his hind legs to determine why he can’t walk.

The dog is affectionately being referred to as “Buck” after Buckshot. A Facebook page “Buck Needs Bucks for his Buckshot Injuries” has been created to follow his prognosis and documenting pictures of his wounds and medical bills. https://www.facebook.com/Buckneedsbucks  (Lots of updates here)

Medical costs are increasing rapidly to save this dog (currently estimated at over $3,000) and Tami is asking people to donate by either call Animal Emergency Clinic at 936.539.3800 or via Paypal to TamiAugustyn@hotmail.com.
