A good Samaritan found a severely injured buff neutered male Cocker near Monument, CO during our freezing temperatures and took him to a vet. He was alone, scared and injured for at least 4 days before being found. The vet clinic shaved his matted, bloody hair, and inserted 18 stitches. After living in isolation the next 7 days at a shelter going unclaimed by his owner, RMCR rushed to get him into our rescue. He went immediately from the shelter to our vet, where several bite wounds were found, believing he was attacked by another animal. We named him WINSTON, knowing he will "Win" his battle.
He is being cared for by one of our fosters, a retired RN. Every two days, his foster and other volunteers cut away dead skin. Winston's initial vet exam revealed a good heart, good lungs, good ears, and good eyes, but we believe he is deaf. The vet believes he will survive, but the remainder of 2014 will be difficult for him. He has not shown any aggression and has been known to give a kiss or two. He will definitely need another surgery and some teeth removed. Please consider donating to his surgery and ongoing care.
If not already, Winston will be micro-chipped, neutered (if age appropriate), and up-to-date on his shots prior to adoption. If you would like to meet Winston to see if he is a good fit for your home, please fill out an Adoption Application online.
