Rock, a mixed breed pit bull that was found wounded in northwest Miami-Dade was taken in by Extreme Rescue, an organization that will give him a foster home, help him heal and will eventually find him a permanent home.
“We take the most extreme cases,” said Molly Cybulski from Extreme Rescue, who picked up the dog Monday. “We save them because if not they would not make it out otherwise."
Rock will be taken to the veterinarian and he will remain with the Extreme Rescue group until his injuries are completely healed. Then, they will do their best to find the dog a permanent home.
“We are hoping that he gets adopted, that he heals,” said Cybulski. “We’ll wait until he is stable and he will be up for adoption- we’ll look for a home for him.”
The dog was found last week tied to a fence with open cuts on his face, head and legs.
He was taken to a Miami-Dade County animal facility, but county laws prohibit the pit bull from remaining in the county.
“It’s been a group effort,” said Dahlia Canes from the Miami Coalition Against Breed Specific Legislation, who specializes in finding pit bulls a foster home outside of Miami-Dade. “He gets to go to the vet and hopefully we’ll have a forever home and he will live happily ever after.
