Friday was euth. day at the shelter where I still work.
I don't have pics of all 5 but here's 3 of them that I had to put down. There were two Pit Xs as well.
All area rescues are full, myself included and also I got no responses on the rescue pleas I sent out.
RIP Doggies. It's not your fault.
I called her Cara
I called him Maddox
I called him Benson
And two we didn't have names for.
Then last night on the way home from a friends' house, we saw the police had someone pulled over, so we thought.
When we slowed down to go around the police cars on the road, we saw a dog who'd been struck by a car.
I had my husband pull over and back up to the scene and I got out and announced I'm the AC for the area.
The Sheriff on scene is one of the guys I've worked with extensively and he was so happy to see me.
I had to run home and get my pickup, with catch pole and crates and drugs and went back to the scene. The dog was a yellow Lab, unaltered male, with a black collar but no tags and no chip.
He had been struck on the right side of his body, biting his tongue through in a few spots, his face and lip were swelling on that side, but worst of all he had a huge 4" or 5" gash across the front of his leg up by his shoulder. You could see veins and arteries torn in half and arterial blood was leaking out at a constant rate. The dog had run also, 1/4 of a mile or so before he collapsed. He must have bled out quite a bit before we even arrived.
Due to shock he was still alive but barely.
I sedated him and scanned him and when we found no chip (no tags) and seeing his injury was going to kill him, I put him to sleep.
RIP yellow dog. It's not your fault either
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
