After a dog was savagely assaulted by two other dogs, Greenville County Animal Care issued an urgent request for a volunteer to bring an injured dog to a vet facility.
Legend was saved when two women out walking overheard a ruckus at a residence. They arrived to investigate and saw two Pit bulls assaulting the dog. The three canines were removed to Greenville County Animal Care after animal control was notified.
When Alexay first met Legend, he was covered in blood and bite wounds. His torso was covered in biting marks, his left ear had been torn off, and his right ear was dangling by a thread.
“You could see all the puncture scars from his shoulders forward,” Rizzo told The Greenville News. “When he moved, blood flowed from a couple of serious wounds.”
“The emergency room vet wasn’t sure he’d make it,” she stated. “There didn’t appear to be anything broken. But the physical toll of all these traumas was too much for him to endure. “A little body can only take so much.”
Legend, on the other hand, is a boxer who survived his first night in the ring. Over the course of many days, he had surgery, was given fluids, and was placed on a feeding tube. Then he started to get better.
His wounds worsened a few days later. However, he progressively improved. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped up to assist with his rising medical needs.
“We’re overjoyed with the outcome and grateful he’s still alive,” said Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the organization. It’s a wonderful narrative, and he’s made a significant difference.”
Legend’s hearing is normal, but he is scarred and has missing ears. He, on the other hand, is overjoyed. His tail is continuously wagging, and nothing makes him happier than kissing Fran.
“If you judge a book by its cover, you can miss out on a fantastic narrative,” Fran remarked of Legend. “He’s the loveliest thing I’ve ever fostered in my life,” she says. “He’s always requesting hugs and kisses.”
Fran says she contemplates keeping Legend every day since the two have built such a deep attachment. She recognizes, however, that she will be unable to continue fostering for Greenville County Animal Care, which is in critical need of fosters.
She hopes that more people will volunteer to foster for Greenville County Animal Care, which is in critical need of help.
Meanwhile, Fran and Rescue Dogs Rock NYC are working hard to find Legend the finest home possible.
