Furious Friday!

Some humans are very sick, you know this? I get this in the mail from the American Humane Society and it make me so mad!:

NakotaAfter a German shepherd's back foot was run over by an all-terrain vehicle and put in a cast to heal, the dog's owner made an unthinkable decision. He removed the cast to stop the dog from chewing at it and tightly wrapped the entire leg in layer upon layer of duct tape.

Sadly, Nakota's suffering was just beginning.

Next, he was kept tied to a tree for four weeks, callously ignored while his pain escalated with each passing day.

The duct tape cut off circulation to Nakota's wound, which became infected, and the poor dog refused to eat, dropping 15 pounds during his four-week ordeal. He was in danger of losing his foot when the owner's wife finally noticed "a funny smell" and took him to the vet.

The good news was Nakota's owners agreed to relinquish him -- which is why animal cruelty charges were not filed against them. He would never go back to the home where he had been so severely neglected.

The bad news was that under the duct tape, Nakota's leg had been devastated by gangrene.

The traumatized leg was open to the bone from the middle of Nakota's hip down. All of the toes on that leg had to be amputated, and he also lost three of the pads on his foot. His temperature was sky-high -- as were the medical bills for his treatment.

After three surgeries, Nakota is back on his feet. Amazingly, his terrible past did not change his sweet personality, and now he is awaiting adoption into a new, loving home.

I do not care these people relinquish him...they should still have animal cruelty charges brought against them. Maybe have their toes and paw pads cut off too! How cruel can you be to such a nice, sweet woofie!

Ohh....I am so mad at these stupid peoples! I am going to go hiss at my brofur now, just because I can!

Oh that is horrible. I am glad that someone cat to that dog's rescue.

MoMo said...

This is terrible. Charges should be laid against those uncaring, stupid humans. I feel so sorry for the poor dog.

meemsnyc said...

Those people are really stupid. Some people do not deserve pets at all. They should get arrested. Idiots!!

We sent a postcard to Ms. Brown's class. Ours was the one from Rome. Mombean was so excited she looked through our old cards, and found some more to send to the class! More cards to come.

( Nice blog!...first time visitor )

Oh. My. Gawd.

That owner...GRRRRRRRRR!!

So MANY humans have such a drastic lack of common sense. Makes me crazy.

Thank you for posting about Nakota's dreadful ordeal. The stupidity, arrogance and proud ignorance of so many animal owners never fails to shock us. We agree, Nakota's owners should have been prosecuted for cruelty by neglect.

What a testament to the beauty of animals that Nakota remains a sweet natured dog.

We cannot understand why those people were not prosecuted. Even though they had relinquished ownership, they had still cruelly neglected her.
We will send a postcard from Devon.

Cory said...

Grete is growling as we are reading this to her...another beautiful German Shepherd that had to suffer needlessly. Good that he was rescued and will never go back to those people....who should have been prosecuted! We hope he gets a great forever home.

Daisy said...

What a couple of doo-doo heads to treat Nakota with such disregard. They did not deserve to have him anyway.

That is sad...

Just as the story of poor Lucas BUT he's on his way to a great furever home as I paw this post!

Here's to a furry nice weekend!

I am with you Diamond!!! The law should allow the man to be punished severely and be able to take the dog!!! There is no excuse for that!!!
I also want to thank you for the super pictures you did of Georgia & I in your country T13!!! We have been very lazy of late and not visiting many of our friends :(
Your scrapbook pages are always good to look at and we do enjoy it!!!!
Thank you for sharing :)
