Comments Off on Graphic Image: Puppy With Ears Cut Off Expected To Recover

UPDATE:  December 28, OKLAHOMA CITY – It’s a happy ending for a little puppy who was the victim of horrific animal abuse.

We first told you about “Sweet Baby Jones”, the pit bull puppy a few weeks ago. He was found with his ears cut off, left out in the freezing cold when he was just four weeks old.

The Bella Foundation and Neel Veterinary Hospital nursed him back to health.

Now, Jones will be adopted by a family from Colorado who works with the organization Stopping BSL, a group that works to stop discrimination against pit bulls.

Members of The Bella Foundation are sad to see him go, but can’t think of a better family to place him with.

“His foster mom took such great care of him. He is doing so well on potty training, he plays well with other dogs.” Jessica McLaughlin said. “He’s going to forget about everything that happened to him before this and he’s going to live a wonderful life.”

Jones has had all of his shots, been neutered and finally had the stitches removed from his ears.

The Bella Foundation brought Jones to their adoption event on Saturday for one last public appearance before he goes home with his new family.

Jones will have two siblings, a chihuahua and another pit bull. The family says Jones will fit right in.

November 29 OKLAHOMA CITY – Staff at The Bella Foundation are trying to find the person responsible for cutting the ears off a 4-week-old pit bull puppy.

Puppy found in freezing cold with his ears cut off!!

The puppy was found wandering around near 23rd Street and I-44.

“He had blood covering from his ears all the way down his neck and even onto his legs. And it was frozen to his fur and was also just stuck to him.” Eric McCune, executive director of Bella, said. “We’re still trying to get it off now because he’s so little, you know, it hurts. And so we’ll probably have to wait a few more days and a few more baths to get the rest of it off of him.”

Today, he is doing better. Tevin Garner with The Bella Foundation is nursing him back to health and giving him a good dose of snuggles.

“It just absolutely breaks my heart to know what he was going through when it happened, to know that he was awake, and you know, just an innocent little puppy being abused like that.” She said.

“This little guy, his ears were done with no anaesthetic, no pain killer, probably with a pair of scissors. And then set down and left to heal on his own.” McCune said.

They nicknamed the puppy “Sweet Baby Jones.” Over the next few weeks, the pup will stay on painkillers and antibiotics. Then the vet will reshape and fix what is left of his ears.

Jones is just a small part of an even bigger problem though; they are worried there could be more puppies like him out there.

“I personally have never seen a litter of one puppy, especially pit bull puppies.” McCune said. “Usually there are 7 or 8, sometimes more. And so he probably has brothers and sisters that are in this same situation.”

Now they’re working to save other puppies from suffering the same abuse as Jones.

“All he wants to do is be with people and cuddle despite what other people have done to him.” Garner said.

As soon as Jones is well enough, he will be put up for adoption.

The Bella Foundation believes his litter mates are somewhere in the area of N.W. 23rd Street and I-44 and hope to find them soon.

If you have any information on who did this to Jones or where those other puppies are, call The Bella Foundation at 1-866-318-7387. Tips are completely anonymous.

I have a Yorkshire Terrier who had to have both eyes removed within 1 month of each other. We took him to the vets numerous times, saying he just didn’t seem right; as an owner who loves their dog, one knows if & when something is wrong!! However, the vet kept telling us he just had infections, which he was treated for.

Two years ago on Christmas Eve, we knew something was seriously wrong with Harry; so we rushed him to the vet. His retina had detached & the pressure in his eye was so high, he must have felt like his head was about to burst. He went straight into theatre, there was nothing they could do, other than to  remove the eye then & there.

They told us his other eye had glaucoma & may have to come out as the retina could detach in that one also. After a month of seeing him refuse food & just wanting to sit somewhere quiet, we couldn’t bear to see him go through so much pain again, so we told the vets to take his remaining eye out also. We learnt that the pressure in that eye was triple what it should have been, so we made the right move!

Harry after having both eyes removed due to Glaucoma

Having had both eyes out, Harry is virtually no different. As long as we don’t move furniture around, he knows where he is going & will often run from one room to the other…which amazes me!!  Most people don’t even notice he has no eyes.”

“He is the same dog, just as cheeky & mischievous…just without eyes! He loves to be cuddled up with me on the settee or even riding on my wheelchair, he knows he is safe, because he knows he is loved & gives that love back tenfold; there is no other feeling in the world, like that!!”

Dog Shot With 100 BBs Recovers And Is Adopted

Comments Off on Dog Shot With 100 BBs Recovers And Is Adopted

We are happy to tell you that the dog shot with approximately 100 BBs is recovering and has just been adopted into a loving home, and that her attacker has been arrested.

Waldoboro police have arrested 32-year-old Aaron Armstrong and have charged him with aggravated animal cruelty.

Love at first sight

Peter Blanton said when he saw Lady, it was love at first sight. He went to the Lincoln County Animal Shelter in Edgecomb, Maine, looking to adopt a new dog. That’s when he happened upon Lady.

“I was late that day, and I wasn’t supposed to be able to get in [the shelter], but the staff stayed late,” Blanton said. “They showed me this dog, and it was sort of like love at first sight.”

The black Lab was found abandoned and wandering down the side of a road. She was taken to the shelter, where staff members conducted a routine examination.

They were astounded to find her body peppered with the tiny, metal birdshot balls. X-rays showed she had been shot in the facestomach and back.

Dr. Dean Domeyer of the Boothbay Animal Hospital has been working on Lady, who will soon have some of the Bbs extracted. Not all of them may be removed, as they are made of brass, so they are not likely to pose health risks, and the number of incisions may just end up causing Lady more discomfort. However, testing and further examinations will be done to make sure.“She’s a fantastic dog,” said Dr. Domeyer. “She doesn’t appear to be shaken up by the whole experience of getting on the wrong end of a blast from something.”

What’s more important for Lady is that she is no longer suffering at the hands of her torturer.

“She’s just got a wonderful personality,” Blanton said. “We’re really 100 percent satisfied with her now, so we just hope there are no further complications.”

“She’s a lucky dog. I mean, she doesn’t have any eye damage as the vet said and she doesn’t seem to have any organ damage, so I think she’s going to have a wonderful life. She’s very lucky. I think I’m very lucky. In just one day, she follows me like a shadow. She just wants love, and we love her.”

A live Dog; Dropped Off At Animal Shelter Wrapped In Sealed Plastic Bags (Photos)

Comments Off on A live Dog; Dropped Off At Animal Shelter Wrapped In Sealed Plastic Bags (Photos)

“WTF…Yes you read the title right! Why in hells name would you take the time to drop a dog off at a pound, but first try to suffocate it with plastic bags??presumably so that it would be dead;by the time the box was opened???? I am literally gobsmacked & sickened by this despicable cold-hearted, callous, cruel & cowardly act!! Did the bxxxxxds think if they dropped it off, they would get away with it;by saying that’s how they found the dog?? wouldn’t surprise me!!  They are sick in the head & danger to other animals, anyone who can place a plastic bag over the head of a living  breathing being; is a danger to society in general, they are psycho’s.”

“They MUST be forced to suffer the consequences of their actions! Nothing less than a long jail sentence, a fine, & banned from ever owning animals for life!! I wish they could experience how it feels to be forced to go without oxygen, food, water & be covered in sores & ulcers; for the same amount of time poor Champ suffered!!”

“Thank God the desk clerk checked the parcel; she could have just placed it in a corner to open at a later time! Had she done so, the poor dog would surely have died from lack of oxygen! Kudos to the desk clerk, the people who caught up with the cowardly owners that did this & also S.A.F.E. Animal Rescuefor willing to care for the poor dog, now named Champ. Please keep him in your prayers & while you’re at it, pray those that did this; get the punishment they deserve…evil sick MF’s!”

It’s beyond belief realizing that a pair of cowardly culprits dropped off their malnourished, severely neglected dog at the Los Angeles West Valley Animal Shelter a few days ago wrapped in a sealed plastic bag and left him on the clerk’s counter before just walking off.

 Thinking the package was a routine delivery, the clerk was shocked when she opened it and discovered a blue, blooded dog who wasn’t moving. One plastic bag was sealed over the dog’s head, and another plastic bag was tied around his neck.

The clerk immediately rushed the dog to the clinic where the veterinarian staff was able to revive the defenseless little guy who was severely matted and hardly able to move

His body was covered with open wounds and ulcers as the staff shaved him down. The tiny starved dog weighed only seven pounds; he should have weighed twice that amount. He has been named Chamsky, but more informally he is now called Champ.
S.A.F.E. Animal Rescue is caring for Champ who has now been placed in foster care after his initial veterinarian evaluation. Malnutrition and having been deprived of oxygen play a major part in his medical issues, but Champ is getting medicated baths, and several medications for his skin ulcers and infections.
Champ’s slow recovery can be followed on Facebook by clicking here.

The shelter staff were able to catch the animal abusers in the parking lot of West Valley Animal Shelter, and they are being charged with animal cruelty. Champ will be evidence of their abuse in court one day.

State Troopers Go Out Of Their Way To Find Missing Dog After Tragic Accident

Comments Off on State Troopers Go Out Of Their Way To Find Missing Dog After Tragic Accident

Molly was in a tragic car accident with her owner John Philippi late Thursday night.

Sadly Philippi lost his life in the accident but Molly survived, though initially authorities had no idea she had been in the accident. When state troopers discovered the man’s dog was missing they went above and beyond to find the German shepherd.

State Trooper & Molly

State Trooper & Molly

Philippi, a 45-year-old Minnesota truck driver, was driving his truck with Molly by his side late Thursday night. Suddenly, his truck tipped on Interstate 94 in Wisconsin and then was hit by another semi. Philippi was ejected from his truck and died.

When State Patrol officers arrived on the scene of the accident they had no idea that Molly had been involved, she was nowhere to be seen. When they contacted Philippi’s family members about the accident one of his nephews asked about Molly.

A notice went out to all law enforcement officers in the area to be on the lookout for Molly. One state trooper even went door-to-door at nearby homes to ask if anyone had seen her.

“We wanted to find that dog,” said State Patrol Lt. Jeff Lorentz. “We didn’t want it hit by another vehicle.”

Friday morning the State Patrol office received a tip, someone had seen a German shepherd near an exit. The area was searched but Molly wasn’t found.  State Patrol officers did not give up though. Later that day, trooper John Vernon started walking the interstate in the area of the crash with some volunteers when he spotted paw prints in the snow near the crash site.

Vernon followed the tracks and found Molly underneath a pine tree trying to stay warm. Vernon called out Molly’s name and the dog walked right to him.

Molly had a 6-inch gash on her leg and she let out a yelp when Vernon touched it.  Molly is now staying with Philippi’s relatives while she recovers from her leg wound. Once Molly is healed the family will decide who she will stay with permanently.

The family is incredibly thankful to the extra efforts of the State Patrol officers, especially Vernon.  Even the State Patrol office recognizes the extra effort Vernon, who has an affinity for dogs, put into the search.

“I don’t think anybody showed more determination than trooper John Vernon,” said Lorentz.

Severely Burned Pitbull Delivers Her Puppies In Illinois (Photos)

Comments Off on Severely Burned Pitbull Delivers Her Puppies In Illinois (Photos)

“Our prayers were answered…Petunia, the beautiful Pitbull dog that was set on fire, finally gave birth…thanks to all who prayed for her & her babies! But the bastard that set her on fire is still loose…he must be caught as he is a danger to all!”

Petunia’s new precious babies!

On Thursday, a grievously wounded dog was discovered alongside a roadway in Monee, Ill., and on Friday night, she gave birth to five puppies.

Petunia

The dog, named “Petunia,”  is now the responsibility of the rescue organization, It’s a Pittie Rescue, and she is receiving veterinary treatment from the Animal Wellness Center, whose staff stayed with her through the night to ensure that her delivery went smoothly.

Petunia & her precious babies!

Since Petunia’s story was first published, well wishes have been pouring in from across the nation.

Petunia has extensive burns across much of her body. Though no one is certain what happened to her, it appears that she was intentionally set on fire.

Fortunately, she was discovered and rescued, literally in the nick of time.

Petunia now has her own Facebook page, “Mama Petunia,” which can be accessed here.
