Save Rosey the Rottie
Rosey was found today lying along side a country road near the interstate in Tennessee. It's apparent that she was likely there to die. We stopped as soon as we saw this precious girl and offered her a can of dog food which she willing ate, ravenously. As we retreated back to the truck to eliminate fear, Rosey finished her can of food and walk right to us. That's when we noticed how severe Rosey's condition was/is. Her walk was not normal...her right front leg has some sort of obvious damage, apparent by how she walks. We strongly believe that she was hit by a car. She has a very large mammory tumor about the size of a softball on her underside as well as another lump in her chest area. Her ears are also very crusty with obvious drainage. The heartbreaking part is it seems as though Rosey has been chewing at the large tumor as it appears to be gnawed open and infected. Rosey is a very sweet girl...she completely felt as though she could trust us so we feel the need to give Rosey the very best care possible! Rosey appears to be a purebred Rottweiler as she is the typical black and tan with the docked tail.
It's truly by the grace of God that we found Rosey today...it's very likely that she wouldn't have made it much longer. We strongly suspect that Rosey's vet bills will amount to the thousands after our vet visit(s). Please help us save this sweet angel...she deserves nothing less than the absolute best! Thank You.

I have to keep this short since I'm posting from my phone during a rescue.
Rosey needs you, all of you. This girl is so sweet and deserves to be running happy with her family. We will have her blood panel results sometime tomorrow, pray for the best!!!!
I've attached a photo of Rosey's ruptured, ulcerated tumor.
