A one-year-old Dogue de Bordeaux may have been done a favor on Friday when a heartless culprit tossed him from a moving car in a rural part of Kershaw County, South Carolina. According to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, who stepped forward and rescued the dog from the local shelter, it is believed he may have been involved in a dog fighting operation, and was tossed from the car because he refused to fight. The gaping injury on his front leg is consistent with having occurred during a dog fight.
Now dubbed Pierre, the dog who was covered in ticks, has been described as extremely sweet and mellow – obviously no candidate for a dog fighting ring. Rushed to the organization’s partner veterinary hospital in South Carolina, Pierre is now being treated for his injuries.
“Whoever tossed him out of that car has no idea the favor they did him,” stated Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. “He was saved from a horrible life; (dog fighting) of that we have no doubt. Please keep Pierre in your thoughts, and pray for his recovery both physically and mentally.”
Pierre is another emergency case the New York City based rescue has undertaken. Their goal is to focus on the rescue of these urgent animals and immediately provide them emergency or specialized medical care. In many cases, these rescuers reach beyond vet care and get these animals rehabilitated as needed using trainers and behaviorists to help overcome issues related to past trauma.
