Just when we thought we had seen it all, a new case appears that shakes us to our core.
We don´t know how, and who did this to him, but we were totally shocked to find him, paralyzed, crawling along the road, crying, leaving behind a trail of twisting flesh-eating maggots.
Dickens was being eaten alive by thousands of them. The larva, feeding on his flesh and delivering a slow and excruciatingly painful death.
We don´t know how long Dickens has been in this condition and how long he would have been able to survived while being eaten alive by the larvae.
Dicken´s back has been broken, probably for weeks. He has no deep sensitivity, no feelings on his legs.
The Neurologist insists Dickens should be euthanised because he will never be able to walk again and who would care to adopt a paralyzed dog?
Luckily for our animals, this rescue is not being run by a neurologist. Luckily for our animals, our approach is different. If Dicken´s is not able to walk again he will use a wheelchair, but he´s not going to die after the atrocious hell he´s gone through!
Our medical team is working hard to control the myasis (larva infection). They are everywhere, inside him, in tunnels burrowed under his skin, everywhere, His condition is absolutely heartbreaking…
Dickens will never walk again… but that doesn´t mean he should die.
