James has the kind and gentle manners of a dog that has lived all his life in a home… until the day they abandoned him by the side of the road, in the probable hope that the speeding traffic would take care of the problem.
The first car met him at a roundabout and narrowly missed him, by the time they stopped to see if they could rescue him it was too late, he had already been hit by a car and was dragged under the engine until someone stopped them and alerted them that there was a dog trapped under the vehicle!
When they finally stopped, the car had to be lifted for him to be freed. It required three people to get him from under the engine!
James was badly injured, a very nasty cut on the face, a fractured leg / scapula and multiple abrasions on his body… animal control was called and he was collected. James was taken to a Municipal Kill Station to be killed.
James stood no chance in that pound. No one would have paid any attention to a badly injured dog… he would have been killed outright. We had to get our contacts moving to get him out of there and rush him to our hospital…
James presents with multiple fractures and wounds, on the face, the leg, the shoulder, as well as pneumothorax, internal bleeding compressing heart and lungs… Tomorrow we will be doing a CT Scan, evaluate them fully and operate them right away before it´s too late. We are specially concerned about the neurological deficit on his front left leg.
This is James´s rescue video… he´s the kindest and most balanced dog we´ve ever rescued… and he´s broken… and he needs help… PLEASE WATCH…
