SHF got word that Rose was being repeatedly abused by her owner and attacked by other dogs.
At that point, Rose was very sick and unable to walk. A neighbor sought help from a rescue and was eventually able to take Rose to the vet. Rose was examined and got stitches for some of her larger wounds.
Saving Huey Foundation was tagged and messaged about taking Rose into rescue from her location in Tijuana Mexico. I was told that Rose was enduring continued abuse from her owner. I saw her and immediately offered help and rescue. We had our team ready to pick her up, but we were told that she was too sick to travel and would need to be hospitalized until Tuesday. We understood, given the severity of her wounds.
After what felt like forever, SHF was finally able to pick up Rose. She immediately saw the vet, met the pack and is now settling down. We go back to the vet on Wednesday, so that Rose can get her remaining stitches out. The vet feels as if Rose's injuries are closer to two weeks old, rather than the one week we were told. She is on heavy antibiotics to help clear up her infections and ensure that they do not become septic. She weighed in at 97 pounds and is estimated to be between 12-14 months old.
I am keeping medicated ointment on her injuries and although it isn't her favorite thing, she allows me to do so. Some of her injuries drip blood, and she tries to clean the mess up for me by licking the floor. I pray that Rose knows that she is safe and that her life has changed for the better. We will take it one day at a time and allow her to blossom at her own pace.
We thank you for the shares and donations. Cases like Rose's are not cheap and there are many factors that go into a rescue, especially an international one. Huey's Second Chance Ranch, although not even completely set up, is already bursting at the seams with many precious souls. Your donations help us help the injured, abused and forgotten and we thank you for your amazing support.
