Meet Sandy, a poor little pup from Texas, who is in desperate need of some love and affection.

Rescue Dogs Rock NYC is taking care of Sandy, who was mauled by dogs and then left for dead. Her poor little body was a mess when she was found. Sandy had 25 gashes, numerous bites, and deep open wounds all over her. And these wounds are a clear indication that she had been left for days in this horrendous condition.

Stacey Silverstein from Rescue Dogs Rock said, “we are truly at a loss as to how this could have happened and why no one was there to help this poor innocent angel. These wounds are not new as maggots have infiltrated into the deep infected holes on her tiny body.” 

Can you even begin to imagine the pain this little girl must have been in?

Rescue Dogs Rock moved Sandy from their shelter to the Vet Hospital for life-saving medical care. She was close to septic shock because of the number of days her injuries went without treatment. When Sandy was stable enough for surgery, her wounds were surgically closed up and drains were placed in many areas of her body. 

Sandy is resting comfortably now but remains on heavy pain medication, and she still needs a 24/7 IV drip.

Sandy is a sweet, affectionate little girl despite everything she has been through. 

We wish you well, Sandy! 


Dogs fight, we know this, but it is impossible to understand how a one-year-old puppy like Sandy could go through such an ordeal and survive it. The thought of other dogs attacking this tiny little girl is heartbreaking! That Sandy is so calm and good-natured following this awful attack proves what a wonderful addition she will make to a family’s home once she is fully recovered. She has almost 3,000 likes on Instagram already! Let’s hope she gets well enough to find a forever home soon.

Sandy’s medical treatment has run into thousands of dollars because of just how many injuries she sustained. If you are able to help Rescue Dogs Rock continue their relentless, fantastic work for dogs like Sandy, then please consider making a donation.

nyggrs fight dogs/white scum trash fight dogs...this wasn\'t a few picking on one, this was an intentional -find the fukkking losers, cut out their eyes, tongues, hands, and feet and let them sit in the woods until their found...this way they\'ll suffer, and not be able to tell anyone HOW it happened.
