Seriously Injured Dog Left Without Food Or Water In Overheated Trailer

8/6/2017

At the end of May, a dog named Lindo was saved by the American rescue association,Guardians of Rescue, near Miami, Florida.The dog had suffered a serious head injury and was trapped in a trailer in direct sunlight for over a week, without water or food. His owner justified locking the canine inside by explaining that Lindo would have otherwise escaped to their neighbors land,who he claims would have hurt the dog.

However, Guardians of Rescue, not convinced by this excuse, was absolutely shocked by his behavior and added:

We found out that his owner opted to use Gentian Violet, which is an antibacterial, anti fungal, antiseptic medicine to treat the wounds, instead of taking him to a vet.

As soon as they took the dog into their care, they brought him straight to a veterinary clinic to determine how serious his injury was and finally begin to treat it. The wound had been infested with larva and the dog was dehydrated, malnourished and still suffering from other old, untreated wounds.

Lindo is now finally out of danger and on the road to recovery with treatment and antibiotics and the association hopes that they will be able to get justice for the canine:

Lindo suffered terribly in the past, but because of Redland Rockpit Abandoned Dog Project, The Guardians and all of our awesome supporters, he will never suffer again. Lindo will have the life he deserves with a family that loves and deserves him.
