Each dog and rescue is unique, but there are usually some common denominators. 1) Dog is abandoned for no fault of their own, 2) Now a stray, dog finds shelter in a decrepit shell of a house, 3) Stray is very afraid. For my new best buddy, Sluggo, that certainly was the case with his rescue. Simply stated, he had it rough. Mankind certainly let him down.
Pazzo, the young border-collie mix who was brutally abused with a tight, knotted rope had another surgery yesterday. When he was rescued, the rope had been embedded in his lower waist and had actually severed his penis in half, causing excruciating pain. He had emergency surgery that day to remove the rope, suture his waist and begin the process of reconstructing his genitals.
