Nick the Survivor

FullSizeRender20150204_130504-1

The Davidson County Animal Shelter UAC reached out to us requesting help for an injured dog with a rope around his neck that had been hit by a car. This call was likely the kindest thing anyone has ever done for him…we have named him Nick.

We picked up Nick and brought him to Davidson Animal Hospital for treatment. Nick is very underweight, he has soft tissue damage on right hind leg with swollen paw, his upper lip is split open, he has deep road rash on his left side, many abrasions, ear mites, hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms, demodex, his body is covered in large scars from old injuries and there is deep scarring all around his neck indicating previous embedded collars.

Nick’s body tells a sad story of a lifetime of abuse. We will never know everything that Nick has had to endure in his life but, throughout all of this, he remains the sweetest boy with such a gentle soul.
