Emergency case: wired dog needs help!

Our rescue team was called to rescue this dog abandoned near a farm fence, caught in metal wires. One long wire was wrapped around his back leg and damaged the tissue – it doesn’t seem like a new wound, because the leg was destroyed, and putrefied. The other wire was wrapped around his neck (no damage there). The vet carefully examined the dog and the only solution is to amputate the dog leg and hope that the infection can be controlled with antibiotics.

The wire dog has no name yet. Our priority is now to help him live and recover because, in the best scenario, he will remain on three legs for the rest of his life. The wire dog needs your help to stay alive!

Please share this dog’s story far and wide and please remember that there is no small donation.

We aim to raise 500 EUR to provide first aid: amputation of the leg and other related veterinary costs to try to save the wired-dog life.

Wired-dog greatest donors: Laura J., Janet McD. , Jeanette J., Michele PM.,Tamara RH., June H., Pernille S., Mihaela S., Carine P., Jean- Philippe, Thierry P., Lisa D., Tanya B., Sun Auctions,Muriel J., Jacqueline VD.

Update: 12 Nov, 2014

Thanks to Muriel, the wired dog has a name: Lace. The surgery went well.
