Savagely Attacked Dog Making Tremendous Recovery

“I promise that the only hands that touch you are those filled with love. And I promise you that the only memories from here on out will be happy ones.”

From the terrific people at Speranza Animal Rescue in Pennsylvania:

 

Headed back from Philadelphia. My stomach in knots and a lump in my throat over a dog riding quietly in my back seat….

She was brought in to the shelter as a stray late last night. Her body is weak and her dull coat drapes over the bones on her emaciated body.

However neglect is not the only thing you notice when you look at her. You see a victim of abuse. The cuts and gashes on her face are consistent with those of being cut by a knife. Her lower jaw has a huge hole in it, and the skin is dead, rotten, and invested with maggots.

And when I look into her eyes my heart breaks – as her eyes tell a story of a horrific life. Her eyes tell a story of a dog that was left to fend for herself. Her eyes tell a story of a dog that was abused and tortured by the hands of the real monsters in this world us humans.

I’m so sorry for all the pain you have endured. I’m so sorry for all the suffering you have gone through. And I’m so sorry that I can’t erase the memories of your past.

But starting today I make you a promise. A promise that you will have no more worries as to where your next meal is coming from. I promise that the only hands that touch you are those filled with love. And I promise you that the only memories from here on out will be happy ones.

Welcome to the family, sweet Madeline.

Update from the Dillsburg Veterinary Center – October 2nd:  She has a great appetite. Eating and drinking well on her own. She has severe tissue loss and necrosis on her jaw. Facial lacerations that were sutured today. Severely anemic and weak. Prognosis at this point is guarded. She did have a microchip in her but it was never registered with owner information. At this point we can only speculate what had happened to her.

……………………………………………………………………………………………..

Update – October 6th:  Today is a great day! Her prognosis was upgraded to good. Her blood levels that we were concerned about are heading in the right direction. If all goes as planned, she is scheduled for surgery next Monday. And most importantly, her spirits are up. Thank you for all who donated for her medical expenses.

  1. Those evenly-spaced and similarly-sized lacerations? Someone nailed her with a string trimmer. I’ve seen it before She’s lucky she didn’t lose an eye.

    1. I agree with Laura. I just couldn’t imagine a dog sitting that still for razor cuts unless they kicked him in the head to knock him out. A lawn trimmer makes sense, since only a coward would use that sort of instrument to torment a dog. Oh hell, any person who tortures any animal is a coward.

  2. Whoever did this is pure evil! Hope Madeline can recover fully and expierence a life full of love!

    As soon as I get off work I am going right home to hug my boy and give him a nice ear scratch and belly rub.

  3. I read stories like this and hate the human race, but then I am reminded that there are still some amazing people out there like the ones caring for this darling <3 I hope the oxygen thief responsible for her pain and suffering gets ass ****** with a cactus though 🙂

  4. Bless you for giving her the love she needs. It never amazes me how cruel some people can be. Thank you for caring. Hugs and kisses Madeline

  6. This is sickening please fine the BASTARD … An let me have a minute with him. God dam it !!!! I’d kill him with my first punch …. Please get stronger little buddy U deserve a better life ????????

  7. Thank goodness for the maggots, keeps the infection away.
    Poor darling.
    Love to get the bastard and slash his face, and keep the maggots off. His infection would kill the maggots he’s that rotten to the core.

  8. Hugs and prayers for this wonderful girl!! I hope the person paid for what they did to this poor baby! Need the same thing done to them :/

  9. Breaks my heart ..all the need is love..My mom allways said if they will mistreat animals..they will do it to humans..huugs from McCormicks..

  10. Poor sweetheart ? The person who did this deserve to be slashed to death themselves. No animals deserves to be treated this way. Breaks my heart every time. Makes me sick.

  11. Hello Madeline…..i’am wishing you a continous wonderful life ahead of you……God bless all the people who helped you and get well baby madeline!!! <3

  12. And I hope whoever did it dies! I hope their death is horrible and scary and painful.
    I hope they feel every bit of what they put this poor dog through.
    If you can harm an innocent animal so brutally, we don’t need you on this planet.

  13. Il n’y a pas de mot assez fort pour décrire ce genre de personne. Comment peut-on faire souffrir un animal de la sorte, j’en ai mal au coeur.
