Someone kicked a Golden Retriever so hard until he almost died.
Right after rescuing Masik from this video: (1.8 million views).
We received another call on the Hope For Paws emergency line. A Golden Retriever was laying down for many hours, unresponsive, and Loreta Frankonyte and I knew it was an emergency.
Of course, there was no way for us to know how badly he was injured (nothing was visible), but we could tell that something was wrong internally.
After the rescue, we named him Antonio, and rushed to see Dr. Pedraza.
He told us that looking at the ultrasound images, it looks like he was kicked really hard. He didn't believe that the dog was hit by a car because there were no signs of that - no road rash, no broken bones, no visible trauma that is always present in cases where dogs are hit by cars... it was a hit that injured his liver and spleen.
Because of the injury, Antonio was bleeding internally, and the doctor told us that if we didn't get to him that day, he would have bled internally and would have died within hours.
After the surgery, he continued to our friends at The Little Red Dog: and the rest of this story is in this video :-)

    you need a portable hand truck. I have one that only costed me $150 including tax, and makes it possible for me to do all kinds of things I couldn't before. When folded it takes up about 7" x 14" x 39"(not exact, guessing since it isn't with me at the moment)... its rated for 145 pounds, and fits in the trunk of my friend's Toyota Camry.

    There is an especially miserable place in hell for people who hurt dogs this way.

    A dog's capacity to forgive and forget is just mind blowing. He loves his new family, it's so obvious, has forgotten all about the one who nearly killed him.

    Maybe you could use a mechanics dolly to slide the cage instead of walking it. That may help your back. You could also get locking wheels so it won't roll when the dog goes in.

    What a beautiful dog! I have 2 German shepherds. They’re wonderful animals! They way he went into the cage just goes to show you the compassion they have! He wanted to be rescued, he knew his suffering was over and he was off to a better life. I can’t even imagine what this baby has gone though! You guys are amazing people!

    This one I couldn't watch. I had to skip forward to see him as a happy, healthy pup. Not a sorrowful, terrified pup in extreme pain. And he is so so so happy at the end. I feel so relieved and happy to see him that way. Thank you to the Hope For Paws team and his forever parents. Thank you thank you.

    That trap needs wheels on one end that can retract when trapping and then extend when moving it to the car and a handle on the other. Maybe some welder could help you with that?
