When Stray Rescue of St. Louis spotted a dog with a h.o.r.r.i.b.l.e embedded collar run into an abandoned house they knew they had to save her.
Stray Rescue of St. Louis had received a call about the injured dog after she was seen running down the street.
Once they secured the pittie, they entered the basement to try and find the dog with the embedded collar. It was freezing cold in the derelict home, it being winter, and its occupants having left long ago. That’s when they spotted the dog they were there to rescue.
But they were surprised to see another dog, a large Rottweiler, sitting on a nearby couch. Rescuers thought it best to separate the two dogs in order to safely rescue the badly injured one, who they named Seska.
They could see that she was suffering greatly because the embedded metal chain that had created a deep wound around her neck. Every time she moved she was in pain.
Skip 5:20 – 7:22 if you do not wish to see Seska being freed of the chain in Stray Rescue’s trauma center.
As for the Rottie, he turned out to be a gentle fellow who was trusting enough to be lead out of the freezing cold home and on to a better life.
Thankfully, all three dogs are doing well now and two – Kess and Chakotay – are ready for adoption. Seska will take a little more time to heal before she’s ready for her forever home.
