Comments Off on Victim Of Animal Cruelty Ready For A New Loving Home

“Somebody must know who this lucky little chap belonged to, you wouldn’t forget a face as adorable as that in a hurry! I’m just so pleased the little guy is on the mend, he deserves a wonderful loving home after what he has been through! Imagine how sick someone is to want to break a dogs legs…not someone you would want to associate yourselves with; eh?? So if anyone thinks they know where he came from. or has any information, please contact the number at the bottom; before they do more than break legs next time!!”

FORT WAYNE – The tiny black dog with giant brown eyes and crazy hair bounds across the room, a flurry of wagging tail, busy nose and a heart three times the size of his body.

Michelle Davies | The Journal Gazette Sawyer, an 18-month-old mixed-breed dog and suspected victim of animal cruelty, is now healed and ready to be adopted.

What a difference a few months makes.

On Jan. 5, the terrier mix, now called Sawyer, was found by a passer-by in the 700 block of 3rd Street suffering from two broken front legs.

The “good Samaritan” who found the tiny dog with black hair and gray Einstein eyebrows took him to the Northeast Indiana Veterinary Emergency Speciality Hospital in Fort Wayne, where veterinarians found that the dog’s injuries were not like those that would have been caused by getting hit by a car. Officials at Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control opened a cruelty investigation.

In the meantime, there was a scruffy little dog to help and the shelter’s Angel Fund was nearly depleted after paying for the puppy’s surgery.

“So many people donated for his care,” said Peggy Bender, community relations and education specialist at Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control. “Without it, he wouldn’t be where he is today. You can’t use tax dollars for this type of situation.”

Officials said about $4,500 was raised in a week.

Friday, officials announced that Sawyer was ready for adoption, and he showed off the healing power of love. He’s spent about 10 weeks in a private foster home.

Shelter officials said that despite his ordeal, Sawyer has been nothing but boundless energy and love. Officials estimate he’s about 18 months old.

“Even with both legs in full casts, he would try to hug you,” said AmyJo Sites, Animal Care & Control deputy director. “The injury didn’t slow him down one minute.”

Bender said she worried at first because Sawyer would bounce up and down on his casts until veterinarians assured her the bones had been repaired with plates and pins and the bouncing didn’t hurt him.

The woman who fostered Sawyer since his surgery – officials asked that her name not be used so she can continue fostering high-profile cases when needed – said it will be very difficult to let him go to hisforever home.”

He is awesome. He’s an amazing dog,” she said. “He never knew he had broken legs.

Bender said that while high-profile cases such as Sawyer’s get a lot of attention, it also helps remind people there are many, many other animals that need homes and that when they see cruelty or neglect, they need to report it at 427-1244.

“If you see something, pick up the phone,” Bender said. “We do keep it confidential. Just let us know so we can check it out.”

The cruelty case involving Sawyer remains under investigation.

Mail Man Rescues Beaten And Strangled Dog From Trash Bin

Comments Off on Mail Man Rescues Beaten And Strangled Dog From Trash Bin

“WTF…why? I hope the monster that did this is haunted for the rest of their life; Karma is gonna get ya!!  Video to follow”

A letter carrier in Clayton, New Jersey was on his route when he stopped suddenly.  He heard a noise, and turned to at a nearby recycling bin

Much to his surprise, a dog was inside!  It was a badly injured miniature pinscher.

The min pin had a large gash in his headcouldn’t walk, and his vision was gone.  He was carted off to Clayton Veterinary Associates, where it was determined from bruising and swelling to his neck that he had been strangled, in addition to sustaining the blunt force to his skull.

But there s hope for the little dog, who was to be named Beacon.  Just this week he took his first steps since his injury on his own.  He still has a long way to go, but hopeful technician Janelle Hall says there is still much progress possible.

Video of rescued dog http://video-embed.nj.com/services/player/bcpid634644579001?bctid=2226602222001&bckey=AQ~~,AAAAQBxUyxE~,0CRgpqPG9HHbzOArEeUDZPYDaOk_HTxM

“We’ve seen a huge improvement,” she said.  “He should regain about 70 percent or more of his walking ability.”

Beacon is undergoing a variety of treatments, including laser therapy, antibiotics, pain medications and acupuncture.  He will have hydrotherapy, as well as “tender love and care,” to work his leg muscles so he can walk again.

Officials are still searching for the perpetrator of the brutal crime.  They were initially informed of his being found in the bin, but were unaware that his injuries were due to abuse and attempted murder.  The New Jersey SPCA is investigating.

In the meantime, Beacon, who is between 10 and 12 years old, continues to persevere.

His sad story and remarkable fortitude have already ensnared one lucky dog-lover’s heart, and the potential new owner has applied to adopt him when he is well.

Update On Lindey: Dog Thrown From Bridge Receives $15,000 In Donations

Comments Off on Update On Lindey: Dog Thrown From Bridge Receives $15,000 In Donations

Earlier this week we brought you the story of Lindey, the German shepherd tossed from a bridge in Kansas City. 

We are happy to report that Lindey is smiling again after she was able to undergo surgery thanks to a number of generous donors.

Spectators were at a horse show when they saw a dog fall over 40 feet from an overpass and land in a parking lot of the arena where the horse show was being held.  A snowbank broke her fall, but she was still very badly injured.

Two quick-acting animal lovers sprang into action and rushed Lindey to the Piper Heritage Vet Clinic.

“When dogs fall that far they assume an orientation in space where front legs are coming down first, followed by their head,” said veterinarian Dr. Richard Smith. “We call that a 3-point landing and it’s not very pleasant; when front legs give out and then their chin hits the ground and causes damage to their mouth as well.”

Lindey’s front paws were badly damaged, and her teeth were knocked into her jaw.  She also suffered internal injuries.

“She had some blood in her stomach, some compression in her lungs,” Dr. Smith said.

He also said there was evidence of previous abuse, which is not surprising considering she was thrown from a bridge.

Costs for treatment and follow-up care were estimated to be about $10,000.  But Lindey’s sad story touched many hearts, and the donations poured in.

“We are so appreciative and grateful of those who share whatever they have to help this girl because she is a sweetheart,” Dr. Smith said.

Lindey, who was named after one of her rescuers, has a long road of recovery ahead before she is ready to be adopted.

“She was clearly propelled,” said Nancy Campbell, president of Missouri German Shepherd Rescue.  “She’s still scared and cowers at quick movements.

Anyone with information on who may have done this is urged to contact the Kansas City Police Department.  Their website can be reached here:  http://www.kckpd.org/ContactUs

Anyone who wishes to donate to Lindey or other injured German shepherds may do so herehttp://mogsrescue.rescuegroups.org/

Kentucky Authorities Seek Help To Identify Woman Who Threw Chihuahua In River

Comments Off on Kentucky Authorities Seek Help To Identify Woman Who Threw Chihuahua In River

“WTF…my…how I would like to have words with the bitch that left that poor baby; what if nobody had seen her leave the box, the poor little pup would have surely died. I guess this makes me so flaming mad because I have a chihuahua, who is my best friend, where ever I go, he’s there with me; he’s the only one, out of my dogs that my horse actually likes! No animal deserves an end like this could have been. So if anybody knows who did this, please contact the number below; if an animal is ill, there are way’s & means to deal with it, you don’t just leave it in a bloody box to die a slow painful death. I hope this bitch has nightmares every night about leaving that baby…I hope karma really fxxxs with her head!!”

It was on Tuesday that a blond haired woman between 5’2″ and 5’6″ got out of a late model silver Chevy SUV carrying a small box and walked to the side of the Frankfort Sewer Department on Kentucky Ave. towards the river.

A short time later, the woman returned to her car without the box and left.

According to wkyt.com, witnesses immediately went over to the area and picked up the box. In it was a tiny female chihuahua puppy no more than five weeks old.

Rescuers can't imagine how someone could abandon this tiny five-week-old puppy. She is now recovering from Parvo and one of her rescuers hope to adopt her. Credits:   Franklin County Humane Society Facebook

Authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying the woman. The woman faces second degree animal cruelty charges if found guilty.

Meanwhile the little puppy is being cared for at a foster home for the Franklin County Humane Society where she is now being treated for Parvo. One of the women responsible for the puppy’s rescue is hoping to adopt the adorable canine once she gets well.

Did the woman who was seen leaving the puppy at the sewer department abandon the puppy because the pup was sick? Parvo is a very contagious virus transmitted from dog to dog and can be fatal for puppies. It is very important to have puppies inoculated against the virus early in life.

It is never permissible to abandon an animal because they are ill. There are many options available to pet owners, other than leaving a defenceless animal to languish in pain until they die.

The disease presents with vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and lethargy. Early treatment increases the survival rate.

If you have any information on the identity of this person, please call the Frankfort Police Department at (502) 875-8523 or call Crime Stoppers at (502) 875-8648.

Comments Off on Drunk Man Lets Dog Wander Outside Elevator As The Doors Shut, Hanging The Dog

“WTF…I’m presuming I wasn’t the only one screaming at the computer, whilst watching this horrific event unfold; I was shouting…”You Stupid F$~,?%^$&*^% quite a lot!! Then the couple appear from down the hall, take a look, & I’m thinking “thank God, somebody to save the dog”…but they went back inside their apartment & didn’t come out for what seemed like ages! Then when they did come back out, it seemed as if they were too late, dilly dallying about like they had all day to think about it!! It should have taken no longer than 2 minutes to find some scissors to cut the lead; & get the dog down!”

“What a bunch of numb nuts…the guy inside the elevator, why didn’t he just stop & get out at the next floor & run down or up (depending on direction) stupid dick head, Or better still, made sure the animal was inside the lift before it set off, as it nearly did with the dogs head half out!! And the guys in the hallway…well theywere just Fxxxxxg pathetic!!!”

“Anyhow, I’m posting this more for identity reasons; although the person who viewed the CCTV footage should have got animal welfare or police involved, If he was the caretaker or something, he would have known exactly who they were & where they live…was it him that uploaded it?? Whichever, please still sign the petition. I can’t believe the dog didn’t suffer any damage to his trachea!”

It is important to let the world know that we should love and care our dog. Human should protect them and be responsible to their safety. I sincerely hope that everyone can sign this petition to raise awareness and also find out this man. Justice should for everyone, even he/she is just a dog.

Thank you for your support!

Owner HACKED OFF dog’s legs with a machete to stop him jumping over the garden fence (but he’ll soon walk again with prosthetic paws)

Comments Off on Owner HACKED OFF dog’s legs with a machete to stop him jumping over the garden fence (but he’ll soon walk again with prosthetic paws)

“Wouldn’t any normal owner just higher the gate, or am I just being stupid? would that be too simple…Fxxxxxg arse holes, I suppose they got off with a slapped wrist, if they were caught, can’t find anything to suggest they were prosecuted. Oh, how animals must hate us human beings & I don’t blame them one bit! I would take this baby in a heartbeat if I could, somebody is going to get a little angel!” 

A dog which had his back legs cut off with a machete has learned to walk again thanks to the attention of dedicated specialists.

Fabio, a four-year-old Maltese, was cruelly mutilated by a previous owner after attempting to climb over a chain-link fence.

Now he is set to be fitted with a new pair of prosthetic legs to stop him suffering from agonising pain as he runs around exploring the world.

The adorable dog was rescued from his abusive home in Miami by Florida Poodle Rescue last month, according to ABC Action News. (see ABC story below)

When he was taken in his back legs had been cut off just above the paw joint – the equivalent of the human ankle

Joani Ellis, from the rescue home, suggested his legs were ‘probably tied off with some type of tying mechanism and hacked off with a machete’.

She added: ‘The story was that his feet were cut off because he was trying to be an escape artist and climb a chain link fence.

Rehabilitation: Fabio is set to be given prosthetic legs to avoid the pain he seems to feel while walking

However, the adventurous pet is nonetheless able to walk around – albeit at a reduced pace – and is looking for new home.

This week Fabio was flown to New Orleans for specialist treatment by leading veterinarian Allison Barca.

She told ABC that the dog was ‘making it on his own’, but appeared confident that her team would be able to alleviate his continuing pain and discomfort.

Dr Barca has experience with animal prosthetics, having helped to fit a Shetland pony with a new leg in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

On parade: The dog could be joining his new roommates marching in a New Orleans second line parade

And she said that Fabio is likely to require similar treatment, receiving artificial extensions to his limbs which will help his mobility.

I just think he needs something to help the stumps to feel comfortable as they remodel through life and to keep them protected from hitting the ground,’ she said.

‘You just can’t order a set of boots that are going to strap to his legs. They’re going to have to be altered to fit this little dog individually.’

The unfortunate pet will be housed at a rehabilitation home for injured dogs, and could soon join his new roommates at a second line parade in the city.

Another take on the story

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Four-year-old Fabio, a Maltese, is moving around Monday afternoon like he does most days, slowly but surely. But starting tomorrow, Fabio’s life will likely change forever; for the better.


“Fabio will fly to New Orleans and he will be examined by Dr. Allison Barca.  She’s put together of team of specialists to examine him,” said Joani Ellis of Florida Poodle Rescue.

His back legs hacked off just below the joint by someone who didn’t want him to jump over a backyard fence, Fabio has adapted and gets by at his own speed.

“Fabio does not need us.  Fabio’s making it on his own.  We’re just going to try to make it better for him,” said Dr. Barca by phone from New Orleans.

Dr. Barca was part of a group that outfitted Molly the Shetland pony with a prosthetic leg after Hurricane Katrina.  Barca says there’s several avenues of help to explore when it comes to Fabio.

“I just think he needs something to help the stumps to feel comfortable as they remodel through life and to keep them protected from hitting the ground.  The two little booties are not going to match. In other words, you just can’t order a set of boots that are going to strap to his legs.  They’re going to have to be altered to fit this little dog individually,” explained Barca.

Fabio will also spend time at Dag’s House, a rehab home for dogs with physical challenges.  Some of those dogs have even walked in second-line parades in the Big Easy.

“I would love to be waving a handkerchief and following Fabio in a second-line parade, that would be my dream,” Ellis said.

Big plans for such a small dog who once faced some pretty tough odds.

Kabang Undergoes Her First Re-constructive Surgery; Since Finding She Had Cancer

Comments Off on Kabang Undergoes Her First Re-constructive Surgery; Since Finding She Had Cancer

“This poor girl really has been through the mill! As her story broke, donations from around the world, meant she could have the surgery to repair her face. But before surgery could commence, Kabang was diagnosed with Cancer. Since being in the US, Kabang has been having treatment for the cancer, & has become a much-loved dog by all that come into contact with her. Kabang has the heart of a lion & cheated death before when she was just a puppy!. Originally rescued by the owner & intended for the family’s dinner table  he couldn’t kill her because his daughters had become so attached to her. I pray now she will soon become well enough, to return to the Philippines & be back in the small village, with all her family, where this story first started; as a much-loved & heroic pooch!!”. 

It’s been a long road for Kabang. After battling cancer and heartworm, the hero dog who saved two girls in the Philippines from an oncoming motorcycle, finally received the first of her dental and facial surgeries to repair the damage she sustained while saving the girls.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Kabang’s story is well-known by many animal lovers. Back in 2011 she threw herself in the path of a speeding motorcycle to prevent it from running over two girls.

In the process she lost her upper jaw and snout. Her story soon became known worldwide thanks to social media. Touched by her heroics people from all over the world donated to bring Kabang to UC Davis to receive the best care and receive re-constructive surgery.

Upon arrival at UC Davis it was discovered that Kabang was suffering from both cancer and heartworm disease. She needed to be treated for both before she could undergo any re-constructive surgeries. Finally on Tuesday Kabang was ready to begin her surgeries.

Dr. Boaz Arzi and Dr. Frank Verstraete at UC Davis performed Kabang’s first surgery this week. They removed two teeth and reconstructed her left eyelid. The procedure was performed without any complications and Kabang is recovering well. She will rest and recover from this surgery before receiving her final facial surgery later in the month.

To keep up to date on Kabang’s progress and care follow Care for Kabang on Facebook.
