Urgent Appeal for Funds to Treat Dark, the Puppy that Lost a Leg
As soon as he was born, Dark was separated from his mom and dad and was locked up alone in an off-the-ground cage at a dog farm in Yangsan.
Since Dark didn’t have a mom to breastfeed him, he had to survive on overcooked ramen while shivering, helplessly in a new and frightening environment, his small feet continually slipping through the mesh of the cage floor.
In the cage next to Dark’s, a white Jindo dog was breastfeeding her pups that were about Dark’s age. Dark longed for maternal care, so he crawled into their cage through a hole and tried to approach the mother dog. However, protective of her own puppies, the white Jindo snapped viciously at Dark and ended up biting off his leg right up to the shoulder blade.
Dark was covered in blood and in such pain, but wasn’t given any sort of treatment. He was left to die.
Dark at the Time of Rescue
Dark was thankfully rescued just before meeting his fatal end, and CARE staff saw to it that he received the emergency treatment that he desperately needed.
Dark has so far undergone two surgeries, and needs your help and support. Please help us raise the funds for Dark’s medical treatment, hospital fees, and preparation for his adoption overseas.
