When Roxanne the pit bull was found abandoned, her rescuers had no idea how desperate her situation was. But when they took a closer look, they noticed that the enormous chain was cutting deeply into her neck. What’s more, the swelling it caused was quite horrendous.
This rescue occurred in summer 2016. Roxanne was just one year old, and she was roaming the streets of Columbia, South Carolina. Naturally, her rescuers were worried when they saw how severely her head was swollen.
In fact, the pooch’s condition was clearly critical. Indeed, nobody could tell how long she had been like this, but it was long enough to ensure that the large chain wrapped tightly around her neck was causing lasting damage. Obviously, dragging it around the streets had not been good for her.
