This is Gabriel. He was turned in to the BARCS shelter with a severe head trauma. How could someone do this? He was taken to the emergency vet and helped there.
His eyes were swollen, but a sister rescue group stepped in to help. Don't worry-- he's being cared for very well.
And look at the difference! He is being carefully monitored and will see an opthalmologist. Even in the emergency vet, he was wagging his tail as he was gently talked to.
His eyes are a little red, he may have lost sight in one, but he will rally.
I just want to go hug him and the person who is helping him! Thanks, Melanie!! Her group is: http://www.muttsmatterrescue.com/
He's only 2 years old, so he has a happy future in front of him. He'll be cared for and have a forever home once he is ready. In rescue, we get all kinds of dogs with all kinds of conditions-- but once they are in rescue, they are safe. I can't look back too much on where they WERE, but I concentrate on where they are GOING! Otherwise, I could not do rescue.
