Coastal German Shepherd Rescue rushed to Rocky's aid, pulling him from the shelter and taking him right to Alicia Pet Care Center. Upon examination, our vets discovered ligature marks in addition to the festering wounds. They believe that Rocky was chained up and the chain wrapped around his foot so tightly that he literally chewed off his foot to free himself from the confinement and the pain. He had a massive infection in his leg and the tissue was all necrotic; his leg had to be removed, due to the damage and infection.
