It’s hard for those of us who adore dogs to comprehend why anyone would want to hurt a helpless animal without any justification. Unfortunately, there are some individuals out there who are cruel and their actions are completely senseless. The tale of Spencer, a sorrowful pup who was subjected to an awful amount of abuse in his first year of life, is an example of this.
Meet Spencer, a friendly Doberman who was found on the side of a highway in South Carolina after getting hit by a car. It’s unbelievable that he was caught wandering along the roadside, scavenging for roadkill to feed himself.
By the kindness of some compassionate people, Spencer was thankfully taken to Paws & Claws in Columbia, South Carolina. The veterinary staff could easily see his injuries, with his limbs visibly affected. The poor pup had suffered a broken spine, seemingly resulting from a vehicular accident.
The staff noticed that the dog had a poorly done ear cropping, which seemed to have been carried out at home. Upon further examination, x-rays showed that the poor pup had ingested a bunch of bird bones that were dangerously sharp and could have caused serious harm to his stomach. In addition, he had cuts on his head and legs that required stitches.
It was clear that Spencer had suffered abuse, as he was found running alone on the street, presumably abandoned. Nevertheless, the VCA Animal Specialty Center of South Carolina provided some reassuring news – since he was still small, he would be able to recover from his injuries. Although he had lost some mobility, it was hoped that surgery would repair his spine and enable him to walk once again.
Thankfully, the surgery done on his back was a success and he was making progress in his journey towards walking again. Additionally, the medical experts noted that the bones in his stomach were gradually passing without any issues. It seemed like things were progressing smoothly.
At the moment, he’s on the path to recovery thanks to the caring staff and physical therapy. He’s making remarkable progress! Initially, he required full assistance to walk but in no time, he was able to do so without needing a sling. He’s now back to his lively self and can walk independently. This wonderful dog is youthful, happy, and in excellent condition. He’s enthusiastic about living life to the fullest.
Update: Spencer has finally found his permanent residence!
It’s not shocking that this courageous pup found the ideal family with fellow furry friends by his side! His owners keep an eye on his social media account, so make sure to give him a follow.
