GWARP recently came across an alarming incident involving an aged dog that was cruelly restrained and deliberately deprived of nourishment and hydration, even though its condition was already critical. Despite our extensive experience in the field of animal rescue, this particular case was an unprecedented shock for us.
It is evident that the dog is experiencing the distressing effects of bone cancer. However, regrettably, the pup has never received any medical attention and has spent numerous years confined to a restricting chain. Its sustenance solely consists of garbage and leftovers, resulting in a severe lack of nourishment and vital nutrients. Consequently, this poor creature has developed osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer.
According to the veterinarian, this form of cancer typically arises from significant harm inflicted on the body, leading to an infection that eventually develops into a tumor. Regrettably, this description aligns with the incident reported by an eyewitness who observed the dog being subjected to brutal beatings by its intoxicated owner. For an extended period, the owner kept the poor animal tied up and hidden away in their yard, restricting its movement to just two feet due to a short metal chain.
When the rescue team asked for help to save the young boy, the owner declined, arguing that they couldn’t take away “his belongings.” Subsequently, they sought aid from the nearby police.
X-rays have recently uncovered the presence of Osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer. The good news is that there are currently no indications of the cancer spreading to other body parts, increasing the chances of survival. Nevertheless, the tumor is relentlessly expanding, causing the skin to gradually tear due to its rapid growth. It appears to be getting bigger with each passing day.
Jordan was treated to a luxurious bath, which served to wash away the lingering traces of his troubled past and the negative vibes left by his previous owner.
After reaching Istanbul, Jordan underwent a short sedation to facilitate the X-ray imaging of his entire body before the surgical procedure.
Fortunately, the amputation surgery on Jordan’s limb affected by the tumor was successfully performed, and he is now relieved to be free from it. The operation went smoothly without any complications.
It has been three days since Jordan underwent surgery for amputation. He quickly adapted to his new reality, effortlessly embracing the changes. Not only has his appetite returned, but he also finds great pleasure in enjoying the food we offer him.
Let’s continue sending our best wishes for a quick recovery and a bright future full of many years to come. Jordan, know that you are dearly cherished by all of us.
