“I started writing this post last night, but couldn’t finish it due to pain. However, a lot has happened since then. Below is the story of a dog rescued, in Rio de Janeiro with massive trauma to his rear end, by a man named Wilson. Obviously when pictures were seen of the devastating injury, a Face Book rescue team offered their services or were contacted by Wilson for help (I am unsure as to which it is) because the dog needed immediate attention, to tend to the gaping wounds. This Face book group (who I’ve just found, stating that Wilson asked for their help) arranged to have the dog treated free of charge & arranged a ChipIn for people who wanted to donate to the dogs treatment”.
“However, it appears that Wilson, the man who rescued the dog now named Davi, will not let it go & have the specialist treatment, it so desperately needs to save it’s life. It is obvious to anyone, who see’s the pictures of the poor dog, that it needs special surgery, skin grafts, blood transfusions etc. etc. that simply can’t be treated at home or by a local vet! For reasons unknown to me, Wilson will not let the dog go have the treatment done, even though it’s for free! I simply can’t think of any reason why someone who rescued a dog in such condition, would turn down the offer of free surgery & help, which would normally cost a fortune…but more so, because each passing hour, the dogs life is ticking away!”
“Further more, since writing this last night, the rescuer, Wilson, seems to have taken all the pictures of the dog, off his Face book page, but I had already added some to this post!! It is all rather confusing, but I have tried to give both sides of the story, it is up to you the reader to try & understand why the dogs rescuer, will not let the dog go & receive the treatment he needs to save his life!”
“Please note the further down this page you go, the more shocking the pictures are, so viewer discretion is advised!”
The photos of Davi’s the dogs wounds are shocking – horrifying in fact.
A trauma of some sort has left the emaciated hound with a gaping wound, so deep that bone is exposed. Without a doubt, the long untreated injury causes this dog incredible pain.
Davi was recently discovered in the woods outside of Rio de Janeiro in Brasil.
View slideshow: Davi The severely wounded dog had been left for dead.
Without a doubt, had Davi not been discovered, infection would have invaded the massive wound and killed him. But a man named Wilson has taken it upon himself to help this abandoned, injured dog.
Though this sounds as if it may be a rescue story, it sadly, is not.
Wilson, though seemingly compassionate, has for reasons unknown, chosen not to take Davi to a veterinary surgeon. Instead, Davi is getting minimal care at Wilson’s home.
A veterinarian has seen him there, and has given him antibiotic pills, vitamins, as well as IV fluids right after Davi was rescued.
But, according to those trying to help Davi, that is all.
The obvious reason for not taking Davi to the specialist which is needed to close the massive wound and provide a much needed blood transfusion would seem to be that Wilson does not have the funds to provide the specialized care.
But that is not the case.
As word of Davi’s trauma spread, rescuers and dog lovers chipped in to raise funds so that Davi could receive the specialized care that he needs to recover.
In fact, though Wilson has been informed that a specialist is waiting to see Davi and that all of the veterinary expenses will be covered – the “rescuer,” for reasons unknown, has chosen to not take Davi to the veterinary hospital.
For six days, those who have raised funds have been pleading with this man to take the dog to a specialist. According to those who organized the fundraising, for six days, he has refused.
On Tuesday, the following was posted on the Facebook page created for this dog about the current situation:
We have come to a point, where there is no getting through to this Rescuer who has, “Davi”. His name is, “Wilson Martins Coutinho”. He needs to be Reported to an International Animal Welfare Organization. Could you please help me get the word out? We have everything booked for “Davi” to arrive at a Vet Hospital with a renound Doctor/ Surgeon. We even had the Surgeon contact, “Wilson” directly to bring “Davi” in.
All expenses would be paid for by SPonsors, and the Doctor’s there, Vet Staff, as well as “Wilson” is well aware of this. But “Wilson” still won’t take “Davi” there. Today is day 6 of pleading with him! Please! Can you help us?
Right now, without proper care and treatment, Davi is suffering. His wound reveals exposed bone – the risk of deadly infection is high.
Davi needs specialized help, yet he is, for some reason, being denied.

“Below are statements taken from the rescue Face book page, (throughout the course of the evening) those trying to help Davi the dog. But Wilson, who found the dog, will not give him up, even though he does not have to pay anything! It is important that you read the ‘About’ section of this link, it will help you understand what is going on..you need it, believe me! It also appears that friends of Wilson on his Face book page, have reportedly made rude remarks & comments…to the people offering help!. That’s just stupid & doesn’t help the dog in anyway at all…he is the reason were here for Gods sake, so stop ya bitching & just let the dog get treated, before it’s too late!!”

Davi’s CHIP IN LINK (for Medical Care, Antibiotics, IV Fluids, and his Blood Transfusions):
We have just been contacted by both Humane Society Intl & WSPA! They have looked at the Photographs I’ve sent them of “Davi”! They have said that aside from “Davi’s” Horrible Injuries, they believe he also has an Advanced case of Sticker Tumor (a Sexually Transmitted Disease) If this IS Sticker Tumor, it is HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS! Any dog that comes in contact with “Davi” will ALSO get STICKER TUMOR! The only way to cure this is through “CHEMOTHERAPY” & strong Antibiotic Medications. Aside from that, “Davi” also needs a Blood Transfusion! So I ask you again, if we will PAY EVERYTHING through our Sponsors (CHEMOTHERAPY INCLUDED) for “Davi” (if this is also STICKER TUMOR)…….WHY won’t Wilson allow Davi to be Hospitalized at a Vet Hospital, and get ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING HE NEEDS, inlcuding surgery & CHEMOTHERAPY if he needs it????? And all the while, we’re still being Spit on, THREATENED, and HARRASSED by “Brazilian Resident’s” on Wilson’s Friend’s List???? You can contact Humane Society Intl & WSPA yourselves to confirm everything I’ve said!!! Thank you Posted Thursday When Friday comes around, and Wilson still hasn’t Admitted “Davi” the Vet Hospital, we can no longer provide help. All of our Sponsors Donations will be Reimbursed (which was to be used towards all of Davi’s Medical Care, Medications, and Surgery). We have already tried our best (over a course of 8 day’s now), begging for Wilson to allow “Davi” to go to the Vet Hospital for Evaluation by a Veterinary Doctor/ Surgeon. We can not continue to be spit on by all the Brazilian Residents Harrassing us, and threatening us on this page. This was all about helping “Davi” from the very beginning. We were there when Wilson asked us to start the CHIP IN for “Davi” 8 day’s ago. We also were asked by the Doctor to buy all the Special Dog Food, Supplements, and Nutri Cal to help Davi get better. It costs $203 US Dollars, which we can also provide a receipt for. We refuse to no longer be spit on by so many Brazilian Residents. This is not about you or Wilson. It’s about saving the life of 1 dog, and doing the right thing for him.
” I posted a few pictures from Wilsons Face book page, but he has now removed them, had I known, I would have posted more, as they are proof of what has been said!! “
” Below is the Face Book Page of ‘ WilsonProtector’:- the man who rescued Davi the dog! I can’t think of how the dog was or became injured, unless he was caught in a trap or used for some other unspeakable disgusting reason!”
“The following pictures are from Wilsons Face Book page with translations – I felt it important to add some pictures from Wilsons Face Book, proving that he does seem to be asking for help!”
” The following written words IF NOT in BLUE are the words of Wilsons (translated)”
“Who made that shelter for Davi the dog? Was it the person who caused the injury or another person, just trying to help Davi, by providing shelter & food!”
“The dog has purple spray (a topical anti-bacterial spray that I use on horses) on the wound, when was that put on? perhaps when the wound was much smaller? perhaps done by the person who caused the wound? or the person who made the shelter for Davi??”
“So he clearly states on the above picture that he doesn’t think the dog will last more than 2 days! Surely if he thought that, he would be grateful of any free help?”
“ I just read from the rescue group Face book page, that it was in fact Wilson that asked them for help…but now for some strange reason, he is refusing any help at all. He say’s in the above picture ‘Person help me please’ well he has been offered help but will not take it…he can’t treat that wound with antibacterial cream alone, the dog needs to see a team of specialist vets. I am amazed Davi hasn’t already died from infection! Surely he can see there is nothing he can do, nor the local vet to help Davi…he rescued him to be saved to live…not die, so each passing hour, any infection in Davi’s injury will get worse…the longer it’s the left, the more chance he has of dying…why can’t Wilson see that…Something strange is going on here, why would he ask for help, only to refuse it. Is he trying to be some sort of healer who thinks he can save Davi’s life, alone?!!
“HELLO AND STAFF AS SAID BEFORE SOMEONE LOOKING doubted AI The VETE SHE SAID THAT would SEE OUR THANKS DOCTOR DAVID ISABELA”
SHE SAID THAT WHEN SEEN SUCH BEAUTIFUL EYES IN PHOTOS IS LOVE A FIRST SIGHT RS RS
NOT JUST BE JUST HAVE TO HAVE VETE LOVE IN HEART AND THAT OUR FRIEND HAS A LOT
ANAESTHESIA FOR GETTING TREATMENT OR HEALING DO WITHOUT PAIN
“came the exams davi and the news is not good he’ll have to make a transfusion “(I’m presuming this is about the blood work results, dam, I wish I had copied those pictures…it seems so odd that Wilson has taken down all his pictures, of which there over a hundred)”
DAVID KING RECEIVED TODAY OUR DISTINGUISHED GUEST RS RS THANKS FOR HELPING FEED SPECIAL MEDICATION AND DAVID PRO FEED MY CLASS.
ANOTHER VISIT TO OUR KING DAVID MY FRIEND CAME FROM AFAR, THANK YOU FOR HELPING THINGS OUR BAZAAR ANIMAL PRO
STAFF PHOTO SORRY BUT I took the REQUESTS FOR YOUR VETE
HOW CAN SEE THE VCS ITEMS ARE STILL IN PLACE (Now the 25th Sept)
“The following pictures show the dog Davi with Wilson, at what looks like a veterinary clinic! However, I understand the rescue groups need for urgency by saying Davi needs more help, than is available at the local vets…he does! Davi needs specialist care & specialist surgeons, who can make skin grafts to cover the exposed area of bone etc…all of which have been offered to Wilson, free of charge, yet he still has refused. I am confused with it all, which is why I am showing both sides of the argument. It is the dog that is of paramount importance here…does it really matter who treats the dog, as long as he survives?
AS A DOCTOR MAKES DRESSING VALERIO I CARRY A CHAT WITH OUR DAVID TOLD HIM THAT NO IA DOER AND I WAS THERE
VALERIO DOCTOR SAID THAT WILL TAKE A TEPO PRA heal BUT IF I CONTINUE DOING WHAT THE DOCTOR Izabela Berbert Fecher indicated WILL GIVE ALL RIGHT
THANKS …………………. SEND FOR SPECIAL FOOD AND MEDICATIONS TO OUR DAVID THAT IMPROVES EVERY DAY, WAY THIS WILL BE OUR ONLY WANTING TO DAVID FILET MIGNON RS RS (Dog food etc. obviously donated) “(Were these supplies donated from the rescue Face book group?)”
“The following was posted 13 hours ago (around midnight UK time) on Wilsons face book page ,https://www.facebook.com/wilsonprotetor again translated; It is very hard to understand… but in his latest post, he seems a little pissed off about the rescue Face book page. Perhaps Wilson is under the illusion that his local vet can treat Davi, I don’t know…it’s all very confusing. But more importantly, I have noticed the pictures of Davi, the vet bills & blood work, which were on his face book page after midnight last night… have now gone!”
GOOD I WILL ANOTHER outburst TODAY IN PART OF THE MORNING I RECEIVED A CALL FROM A TAXI DOG THAT WAS THE WAY TO MY HOUSE TO BRING TO THE DAVID PETROPOLIS. THERE IS A QUESTION, WHAT IN MY PLACE would VCS. FIRST AND SECOND RELEASE WAS NOT surrender VCS VCS OF AN ANGEL TO A TAXI DOG IN YOUR DOOR? MY GOD SO MUCH INTEREST IN DAVID PQ. PQ ALSO LIKE TO KNOW NOT IN A CLINICAL CENTER OF
The Face book page below, is from those wanting to help, the ones who Wilson apparently asked for help:– https://www.facebook.com/pages/Horribly-Disfigured-Dog-Davi-in-Need-of-Emergency-Treatment/565457590147188 Alas, Wilson has still refused their help for free treatment for the dog, the following was posted around 3p.m UK time. It all seems very strange to me, asking for help, then refusing it. This is no time to be playing bloody games, just get the dam dog to a specialist vet who can save his life…no one else can!!”We have come to the Conclusion that “Wilson” is using “Davi” for some kind of Benefit. We can not State it Publicly, so you will have to Judge for Yourselves. This man, “Wilson” continues to beg for Money Everyday on his FB Page. If this is what he’s doing, WHY won’t he let “Davi” just go to the Vet Hospital to be Admitted. We have stated over & over again for 12 Day’s now that WE WILL PAY ALL OF “DAVI’S” MEDICAL EXPENSES, HOSPITALIZATION, MEDICATIONS, SURGERY, AND CHEMOTHERAPY (if he needs it). This will be done through Davi’s CHIP IN, where people all over the World can Donate to help him. So why does Wilson continue to beg for Money everyday? Unless…..is “Davi” being used as a tool to Collect More Money? We don’t know exactly……but if we have said for 12 day’s now, that all of Davi’s Medical Expenses will be paid for by Sponsor’s……why not Hospitalize Davi & allow him to be seen by a Top Veterinary Surgeon in Brazil? Why does he make Davi Suffer Day after Day.…..and no one does a thing to remove “Davi” from that Home? I don’t understand. Why??????I also saw a posting by someone on “Wilson’s” page yesterday, that “Davi’s” appetite is declining. He’s not eating well, nor drinking well now. It was someone who also posted Davi’s new lab results. But it has also been erased from “Wilson’s” Page now. I will take a Lie Detector to that, as I saw it with my own eyes. There was also something about a $915 bill, and only $500 had been paid on it. I can’t seem to find it now. Thank you. Yesterday Proof that “Wilson” has been and Administrator on, “Davi’s” Page from Day 1! We also have Documented ALL Email Conversation’s with him, asking us to start the CHIP IN for Davi! Also, WE are the ones who purchased all of “Davi’s” Supplement’s, Nutrical, and Special Dog Food! It cost us $203 US Dollars, and we can provide a Receipt for it! I ask you AGAIN…..if Our Sponsor’s will pay ALL of “Davi’s ” Medical Care, Med’s, and Surgery……why can’t Davi be Hospitalized & seen by a Renound Veterinary Surgeon?????? “Wilson” has been an Administrator on this page for 10 day’s now! I have taken a snapshot photo on my Computer Screen proving this! Why is he telling all of the “Brazilian Resident’s” (on his page), that our page is a Fake, when he is an Administrator on it? And has been for 10 day’s now? He knew of this page, and was asked to be an Administrator of it from the very beginning! We have Documented proof of Everything! I have already forwarded these pics to a Journalist, including ALL EMAIL Conversations with “Wilson” from the very beginning! He is the one who ASKED us to start a CHIP IN LINK to raise money for “Davi’s” Medical Care. Also, WE were the ones who bought all those supplements, Nutri Cal, and Special Dog food! It cost us $203 US Dollars, and we have a Receipt for it! WE have been Honest from the very beginning! To the Brazilian Resident’s on Wilson’s Friend’s List, “Why does your “Wilson” say all these things to you, when we have Documented Proof of everything he’s said to us……including pics of him being an Administrator on this page from Day 1? “I can testify that I too saw pictures of receipts & what looked like blood work. Had I known he was going to delete all the pictures of Davi, I would have copied more pictures, from Wilsons Face book page.” “I have tried to show a snippet of both sides, using the pictures from Wilsons face book, the man who has Davi, the Dog, in Rio de Janeiro (as proof of what he has said or done) obviously translated, albeit badly…you can get an idea of what’s been happening.I would suggest you try & read both sides of the argument…on both Face book pages!” “This man can not treat this dog alone, that is clear, I don’t believe a small vet practice can either. I totally understand that Wilson found the dog & wants to bring him back to health himself, but it is impossible…he needs help, that will not be available from a local vet! So why doesn’t Wilson let the dog be treated…something isn’t quite right here!!” “This dog has no skin around the injury to stitch up, therefore infection will be the killer! If that dog has any chance at life, he needs special surgeons, NOW, which is what the other face book page is offering, free of charge, yet it seems Wilson will not accept, for reasons unknown to us all!!.” “I would have thought it obvious to anyone, who see’s that dogs wound, that the dog needs more than Wilson or the local vets can provide…he must get help ASAP either from the group offering it on Face book or from other source…if he does not, that dog will probably die.”
