A Golden Retriever was laying down for many hours, unresponsive, and Loreta and I knew it was an emergency.
After arriving at the scene, we could tell that something was wrong. There was no way for us to know how severely the Golden Retriever was injured so we rushed him to see Dr. Pedraza. He told us that it looked like Antonio was kicked really hard.
Antonio had no visible trauma, no road rash or broken bones that are always present in cases where dogs are hit by cars. The surgeon told us that he must have been a kick that injured his spleen and liver. Because of the injury, Antonio was bleeding internally, and the doctor told us that if we didn't get to him that day, he would have bled internally and would have died within hours.
You can follow along on Antonio's new life and adventures on Instagram. If you're looking to adopt a Golden Retriever or any other breed of dog or cat, please consider adopting a pet from one of our partners.
Before we rescued Antonio, we were on another mission to save Masik. It was a busy day and we can only accomplish these rescues because of your support. Thank you for following along and for sharing our videos with your friends and family ❤️
