The DRSF team gets many late night calls from good samaritans who have found dogs in all sorts of situations and conditions and the struggle and bravery that some of these dogs display is amazing.  Sherlock is no differet.

Last week we got a call about a little doxie mix who was living in a parking lot.  Not any condition for a dog, but certainly not in the condition that Sherlock was in.  He was outside, on his own, nobody to love or care for him, and had been horribly injured and was dragging himself around with his two front legs.

Nobody knew how long he had been out there, if he would be friendly, or what had happend to him, it was a mystery.  The call came....could we help?  These situations are always difficult as we don't know what we are facing, but DRSF leaves no dog behind, and even if his condition could not be repaired, we had to do what we could, even if it was to help him across the bridge surrounded in love. 

The board voted, vets were lined up, the team rallied, and the DRSF response team was headed to Miami to get this little man.  We held our breath and waited.  What would we find and were we too late?

What we found was an adorable wire haired little man whose legs had been rubbed raw from dragging on the concrete, but who was in horrible shape, but wagging his tail.  We still had no idea what had happened to him, so we scooped him up and brought him.

He went directly to Emerald Hills Animal Hopsital where he was evaulated and x-rayed by Dr. Weiner and found to have been hit by a car and had numerous fractures in his pelvis, two dislocated hips, and his back legs rubbed raw.  Despite being in excruciating pain, he is so friendly and not shy with giving kisses.

His next stop was Lauderdale Veterinary Specialists with Dr. Cook to get a treatment plan together and get him better stabalized.and while his injuries can be healed, we need the DRSF team to help fund his care.  The current estimate is approximately $2,500 but could go as high as $4,000 depending on how his body heals.  Will you help us solve Sherlock's Mytersy and help him recover?  

No donation is too small and all are tax deductible and all go 100% to covering Sherlock's care.  Thank you, from the DRSF team for always being there for us, and Sherlock sends a tail wag and a kiss for helping him heal!
