Caci was discovered as one of several hundred dogs involved in a hoarding situation at a rural Texas location. Upon entrance to the facility, we had to maneuver through acres of dogs without food, water or shelter suffering various injuries, sicknesses and behavioral issues. Caci, about 5 months old at the time, was in a far corner penned up with about 40 other dogs, and the first thing that we noticed was the he could not walk. He was beyond terrified and urinated all over himself when touched. He would not walk on a leash and when picked up he would cower out of fear of being beaten. He was petrified around other dogs because of being constantly mauled and attacked by the animals he was penned with. Caci was seized from the property along with several others and brought to our facility. After examination by our vet, it was determined that he had a torn ACL. Thanks to your donations, we operated on his injury and casted his leg. Unfortunately, after more than 30 days, he was not healing properly and in September 2013, Caci had his leg amputated due to extensive nerve damage and complete loss of use. He recovered in a foster home where he eventually found his permanent place.
