She was found huddled under a car -- with a serious injury. Someone had chained her up and the chain had become embedded in her neck. There was no collar -- just a length of chain. Rudy Giordano, the Animal Control Officer for the City of Orange, brought her to the Associated Humane Societies Newark facility for immediate medical attention. The Society's veterinarians immediately put her under anesthesia and operated on the female Shepherd mix. Thankfully, no flies or maggots had gained access to the large open wound.
Below, Lucy before surgery, the chain grown into her neck.
We've named her Lucy. Lucy has healed nicely and now waits for someone to invite her into their heart and home. She is extremely sweet and waiting for "a new leash on life". File 110692-F (Newark).
