Swollen Pit Bull with 6 Pound Chain Around Her Neck Makes Remarkable Recovery (PHOTOS)
This is Roxanne, a 1-year-old pit bull who was found wandering the streets of South Carolina with a six-pound chain wrapped tightly around her neck.
Due to the strain of dragging the chain around (which made up more than 10 percent of the pooch’s body weight), Roxanne’s head was incredibly swollen, and rescuers were uncertain if she would survive.
After being taken to a nearby vet, the chain was removed from her neck with heavy bolt cutters and she was immediately rushed into surgery.
Not only did the canine survive the ordeal, but Roxanne is already well on her way to a speedy recover, and all signs of swelling have disappeared! You can check out her adorable after photo below.
To help Roxanne and other dogs taken in by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, donations are more than welcome.
