UPDATE 5/20/13: Marky is doing really well! His scrotum area, which was cut up from being dragged by the car that hit him is almost all healed up. He is still at our vet though as we do not have anywhere for him to go.
5-10-13, A stray male pit bull was hit by a car this morning outside our house in Far Rockaway at approximately 7:30 this morning. Matt was alerted to the accident by our neighbor who saw this precious boy get struck by a speeding car who never stopped. Upon being hit the dog fell to the ground and let out a scream. Our neighbor banged on our door and got Matt and together they brought this baby to safety in our yard.
Matt observed blood in his anal area so while he tended to the dog, now called Marky, I made an emergency page to our vet’s office and made arrangements to bring him in immediately. A full exam including a rectal exam were done and revealed no internal bleeding and no broken bones. During the examination the vet discovered that the blood was coming from his scrotum. He was dragged by the car down the street on this area. The vet is keeping him for continued observation for the next few days while also giving him antibiotics. He has been given all his shots as well. Marky is just about 1 years old and he weighs in at 68lbs.
With all Marky has been through he has had the sweetest disposition. He is an incredible loving and friendly boy. He cuddled with Matt all the way to the vet’s office. Please help Marky! Matt Miner, Christine Drakatos and I are thankful for any help you can provide.
