So I got a call that I was needed to euth. an injured dog, dog has been struck by a vehicle. Barry came and picked me up and we went to the house where the dog had been hanging around "for a few days" and finally got hit by a car today.
They came out bringing THIS:
And he's not got any external wounds except scrapes on his front leg and scrapes on his back leg and his private area, a little bit. Strange place for "road rash", the inner aspect of both legs that are scraped!?
I have our vet on standby in case he crashes but he's acting just fine, not shaking or even breathing fast like dogs do when they have internal injuries.
The shelter can't cover a vet bill for him (which is why the standard "treatment" for an injury is euthanasia!) so I offered to rescue him and hold for the legal hold time, taking him in to the vet if necessary.
He had no collar, no tags and no chip. And has been loose for "a few days".
Not sure if anyone SAW him get hit. Jeff thinks he was tossed out of a car.
