Dog Impaled on Tree Branch for 24 Hours Miraculously Survives

“My love… I’m not fortunate enough to pay his bills so I have to surrender him. I can’t focus,” his owner said tearfully.

­A dog who scampered after an arboreal critter became badly impaled on a tree that left him dangling above a South Carolina marsh for about 24 hours has survived his brush with fate; Louis’ cries were heard by a man who got him rescued.

A concerned resident heard the dog’s continuous barking and waded through an entire marsh to find him.  To his surprise, the man found the pit bull hanging about 15 feet above the marsh, a tree limb pierced through his lower torso.

He contacted the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office and animal control, who successfully extricated the suffering boy.  He was carried out on a stretcher and taken to a vet for treatment.

“Just got off phone with EVET said they don’t think the bladder or intestines were punctured,” one staff member of the Charleston Animal Society wrote on their Facebook page.  “He is on IV drip, has a catheter in and he is resting comfortably!”

“This dog is in critical condition,” another comment reads.  “In all my years doing this work I have never seen anything like this.”

It is not believed that any foul play was involved, and that Louis simply got away from his home and went on an ill-fated adventure.

“This was a close call for this pet, and we are doing everything possible to save him,” said Lucy Fuller, Senior Director of Veterinary Care.  “If it weren’t for people’s generous donations to our medical fund, Toby’s Fund, we wouldn’t be able to save animals like this one.”

Louis is microchipped and his family has been contacted.

“My love… My Louis Vuitton Smith… Was rescued out of a tree on Wadmalaw. My tears can’t fill the relief in my heart that someone cared,” the owner posted on CAS’ Facebook page. “I’m not fortunate enough to pay his bills so I have to surrender him. I can’t focus…. I work on Kiawah Island and I called off work today once I found out what happened to my love. They understood because I talked about him frequent[ly]. But just pray Louis pulls thru and our paths cross again. Because I will never be the same without him. Thank you.”

No owner should have to surrender their beloved pet this way.  Perhaps if enough people contacted CAS’ Facebook page and site, and donated to Toby’s Fund specifically for Louis, this devastated woman could be allowed to have her baby back.

CAS’s phone numbers are 843-747-4849 and 843-556-7729.  Their hours of operation are 12 – 5 pm M – F and 10 am – 5 pm on weekends.

  1. Poor baby. A police canine from my area recently lost his life when he ran into a broken tree while training with his master. Very tragic.

  2. I hope he goes home, but I do think the people,looking after him now should maybe just check the situation there first as a precaution

  3. How devastating it would be for the dog to get through this but not be able to go back to the home he feels comfortable and loved in.

  4. This happened right near me and it’s terribly sad – but the story written makes it seem like the shelter is refusing to give the owner back her dog over money – Toby’s fund is covering all Louis’s vet bills but the owner surrender him because she isn’t confident she would be able to keep up with Louis’s after care expenses and as well as care – if/when he is able to be released. The owner wants to best care for her dog and feels she can’t provide that when charleston animal society can find a great adopter who can. 🙂

  5. Can’t believe how this happenso happy he was rescued and taken care of. Pray for his future recovery. Thank everyone that took care of tjis poor baby.

  6. How does something like this happen? That limb is so high off the ground. I pray he pulls through and can recuperate at home with the family that loves him.

  7. This sweet little buddy came into my place of work the evening of his rescue to have his wounds cleaned and dressed, and to keep him comfortable through the night. He has been transferred to our other location and is receiving excellent care from our staff, and from what I understand, recovering very well thanks to the hyperbaric O2 therapy we have been performing. If you’d like the be in the loop on his progress, please feel free to check out our Facebook!

  8. I understand that the owner couldn’t afford medical help but how could they just leave him impaled like that? Why couldn’t they at least get him off? Seriously…they left him like that for 24hours? I don’t get it..
