Compassion for Riddick! Looking for a foster, adopter or donations for 3 year handsome and brave pedigree mastiff Riddick. Some obviously horrible person shot him in the leg. He may have wandered off the breeder's property. And somehow bravely and in obvious fear and pain he ambled back home. The "owner" greeted him with a ride to the vet where he left him and ran off with no intention of coming back.
As you can see, he has pellets in his front right leg. Two KY vets said the bird shot to the elbow region caused radial nerve damage. For days he could feel nothing in the leg. He was slated to lose his leg. But just today he showed some sensation in his leg! So we are thinking now maybe the leg can be saved.
He needs to go to a specialist and then of course to a safe and loving foster or forever home! Can you help with shares, donations [via our website www.peace4paws.org] or a foster/adoption application. This handsome boy has been nothing but sweet and cooperative at the vet's office. He socialized with other dogs and people very well on three legs. And we are hoping to help him recover to his fullest and find that loving home! Riddick really appreciates your support!
UPDATE: Good news - Riddick is on his way to the specialist 2.5 hours away from the rural vet clinic where he had been left [and cared for since]. If you didn't see the earlier, post you could scroll down for those pictures including the xray of purebreed mastiff Riddick's elbow. [ He had been shot and abandoned at the vet by his breeder owners]. Here he is holding his foot up. Both vets that examined him thought he needed that leg amputated however the Christmas miracle yesterday was he had sensation in the foot! So he is headed to the specialist! They are in a rural area so the specialist is 2.5 hours away. But he is very happy he knows we are trying to help him! And he is enjoying the car ride.
Riddick made the long journey to the hospital and now is waiting because another emergency came in first.
Regarding the ride back his transport volunteer said;
"He is experiencing a lot of pain because he didn't make a sound the whole 2 1/2 hour drive up! He stayed awake the entire trip! But coming back, the crying started immediately! I stopped for food for him, and he didn't eat it! I stopped at rest area thinking he may be restless due to needing to use bathroom, he never used it! He cried from Louisville to Richmond, then fell asleep for about half an hour! They had sedated so it wouldn't be painful for him to do the last set of xrays ! Then when he woke at Mt Vernon, he cried the remainder of the trip!
And now he is back at his referring vet office with more pain meds.
Donations needed for Pepe!
Pepe, now a Peace4Paws dog, was on a chain all her life in the back yard. Her owner passed away 2 weeks ago and the family members could not take her in. She is a very sweet 3 year old beagle. She was passing blood so x-rays were taken where a large bladder stone was found. Surgery was performed at the Somerset Animal Hospital and the large stone was removed. Pepe is now doing well but requires a special type of food. Her total bill was $615. Donations already received amounted to $315. Donations of $300 are still needed to fully pay off her bill.
In addition, in 3 weeks, Pepe will need a medical patellar luxation ( injury to the kneecap ). She is on pain meds now till surgery. Somerset Animal Hospital will also be performing the surgery. Donations are needed of $600 to cover the cost of that surgery.
