Ricardo is a Podenco, not a breed I rush to help, however, he is a dog, and those I help every day. he was tied to his loving owners back bumper and dragged down the road, causing horrific injuries. The Policia found him, still attached to the car, but needless to say no chip so the idiot owners pleas of not his dog were believed.
he was taken to a holding pound, where there is no funds to treat the dogs, so he sat in agony for four long days, before I was asked to help.
At that point, I honestly though he was going to loose his legs, due to infection, or worse, but Ricardo is a fighter. his legs were far worse than we anticipated, and he had seven different breaks and fractures, and both his hips are broken.
Yet, his tail wags and he lifts his head to greet you, Ricardo is a wonder Pod.
Thankfully Ricardo has his own fanclub, and the support for this dog is great with several different fund raisers to help with his vets bills. He also has his own page on FB where this cheeky pod updates with photos and witty statements, usually about a crazy lady... hmmmm
