4.10.15 - Rescued Fighting Dog Falls Asleep in Caregivers Arms1

 

Guardians of Rescue saves dogs every day from horrific lives where they are tethered in the cold, hoarded, or forced to fight.  One of their newest charges, Fudge, was found wandering in someone’s yard.  While he was being treated at the veterinarian for bite wounds, he became so relaxed that he began snoring in his caretaker’s arms!

Fudge is seen wearing a muzzle because he was in so much pain that rescuers worried that he might bite out of fear and pain.  But he was a very good boy.

This post comes from GoR:

Dog fighting is real. It happens all over the world and here in beautiful Suffolk County, NY we are NOT immune to that.

We have named our newest rescue Fudge. His personality is too sweet.

Fudge’s body is dotted a hundred times over in old scars and new puncture wounds. He has clearly been used for fighting or as a bait dog. His life has only been filled with pain. Today that changes.

We are so thankful we received this call. Instead of ignoring the furry heap that laid in her yard, a concerned citizen called us. Because of that, Fudge’s life has been saved.

He has a long road to recovery ahead of him. Each of his legs have been shredded and left untreated resulting in infection and pain. He has a bite wound straight through his lip. His adrenaline has worn out and Fudge has melted into the sweetest, calmest little patient any vet would hope for. Fudge is giving up his life of fighting and is so grateful to his rescuers for this new chance. He’s a good boy. The simplest of things.

Fudge needs a foster home that can treat his wounds. He is being monitored by a vet for now but will need calm and understanding as he heals from his horrific life.

Thank you Bed and Biscuit for always stepping up to offer our rescued dogs a safe and loving place to lay their head at night.

If you are on Long Island and can foster this sweet boy, you can become a hero today. Step up for Fudge to prove to him that his only remaining fight in life is for a spot on the couch.

      • You have to have faith in humans. Having faith made the person who found the dog call-faith that someone would help. Faith is what made the rescuers come out and get the dog-faith they could help. And the rescuers have faith this dog will live a much better life. You have to have faith in something-maybe not evil bastards who deserve a horrible, painful death. But to those that go above and beyond and don’t take no for an answer. Its all about faith. Faith that somewhere, somehow, something will change. Even if we ourselves are the cause of the change.

        • I couldn’t worship a god who watches horror & suffering & does nothing. You can explain it away any way you want & I’ve heard all the illogical explanations. I don’t believe in an invisible overseer and I’ve been involved in animal rescue all my life. I’m not here to insult anyone, but I’ll never understand where ‘Faith’ comes in when it comes to helping a suffering being, four-legged or otherwise. I salute and respect anyone who goes out of their way to help suffering animals, be they Christians, atheists, Muslims or people who believe in the ancient Viking god, Thor. Just step up and do a little something to make the world a less cruel place. Thanks for your time! ..Peace

          • Where is the posters comment talking about god? Faith, believe, hope-they all have religious meanings yes but you can also believe in PEOPLE, have HOPE in PEOPLE, have faith in PEOPLE. The poster talked about the original person calling because they had faith SOMEONE would help. Notice the SOMEONE? If you are going to pick apart someones post, at least don’t look like a looser and at least read the comment. You say you respect people then at least READ.

          We all have faith and hope,but you have to realize that the good does not always out weigh the bad.Standing by and waiting for changes does not always work.It is doing something in this world to make change.Faith is not what made the rescuer come out.It WAS a concerned citizen that finally called.Not a person named faith.This is a under ring organization that does this to the dogs.How is “faith” going to stop it? It has gone on for years.

          • You copied the posters comments but did you even read them? The OP indicated they lost faith in HUMANS. The poster you copied from indicated the person called because they had faith SOMEONE would help. They didn’t stand by and hope something magically happened.
            “You have to have faith in something-maybe not evil bastards who deserve a horrible, painful death. BUT TO THOSE THAT GO ABOVE AND BEYOND and don’t take no for an answer.” They are talking about people here-having faith in people. I swear reading comprehension has gone down hill since the internet….

            Webster’s definition of faith-belief in SOMEONE or something

          • Wow you really can’t read can you? Try again. Maybe you can get it right this time…..

        • FAITH IN HUMANS? HUMANS ARE THE PROBLEMS, WE ARE CAUSING GREAT HARM TO EVERY LIVING CREATURE ON THIS EARTH. THE EARTH NEEDS TO CLEANSE ITSELF FROM HUMANS AND GIVE THIS EARTH BACK TO ONLY ANIMALS, HUMANS ARE RUINING THIS EARTH, ANIMALS ARE THE MOST INCREDIBLE CREATURES ON EARTH, AND HUMANS CONTINUE TO HURT THEM ANYWAY THEY CAN. I HAVE NO FAITH IN HUMANE KINDNESS ANYMORE, ACCEPT FOR THE PEOPLE THAT RESCUE AND HELP THEM. I’M NOT A RICH PERSON, BUT I DO WHAT I CAN TO GIVE A FEW BUCKS MONTHLY, I WISH I CAN DO MORE, BUT HUMANS MUST LEAVE THIS EARTH IN MY OPINION , MOST HUMANS ARE NO GOOD.

    • I know exactly what you mean.
      When I see & read this stuff it hurts just as if I was stabbed…
      These lil guy’s depend on us to love them as they unconditionally love us. And if they don’t, it’s because they have been mistreated in most case’s.

      • I have to say in all cases. I am an old rescuer with 60 years under my belt. I have never seen an animal react negatively unless there was abuse. Some of the worst are kids who then lie to their parents and the parents accept it as gospel. I have actually known of cases where the dog was killed because a kid lied.. Needless to say, I do really well without them and would never adopt to people who have any..

    • I can’t figure out why you ask such a ?. a nation that will allow Human Babies in the womb to be Murdered just before birth, & you Find this Hard to believe? Really? I own a Blue Nose American Pit Bull. I was going to breed her, only because I wanted a male for myself. However, I decided against it because I Don’t Trust anyone to raise her pups. My dog is a couch potatoe who only goes out for a Long walk with 2 leashes. Thankyou for your concern for abused animals, I hope that you feel the same way about human life>

      • Animal abuse was just as bad before abortion was legal; if anything, it was worse because there was far less coverage of abuses like this. And don’t forget the curious amnesia that sets in as soon as that baby in the uterus hits the atmosphere. A lot of people may want to see a connection between legal abortion and animal abuse but there isn’t one.

      • How can you make a correlation between animal abuse and abortion? They are not the same. Sure glad you didn’t breed your pit bull. Animal shelters are full of unwanted pit bulls and pit bull mixes.

      • I fell the same way! how can we be so concerned about animal abuse, we cant bring ourselves to make an all out cry against the killing of unborn children. There has to be something wrong with our thinking, to put animals above people.

    • The saddest of the sad. I hate many people. Especially those who abuse our beloved pets … all that they want in their little world is to have someone to love. And look what the monsters of the world do to them. Use them, abuse them, hurt them, kill them. At least the internet seems to be bringing this stuff to the forefront … perhaps some day this type of animal abuse will cease to exist. Look at that poor creature … oh, would I love to get my fingernails into the eyes of the people who did this to him … I, too, have zero trust and faith in my fellow man …

  1. There is a special place in Hell for people who maliciously harm God’s sweet and helpless creatures.

    • I agree with you, there will be a special place in hell for these people. Every week I try to rescue dogs who are dumped in the rural areas in California, these dogs will not survive with the coyotes. Many are too small to have any chance. Perhaps these people should be pushed out of a car driving down the road……..

        • I agree. The laws in this country are way to lenient for these so called people that do such things! Throw their a** out of a moving car and let them lay in the street. I’d step over them and would not help. These sub- humans are dirt!!

          • The problem is, like most people, the “law” doesn’t recognize any innate value of an animal’s life, only the “market value” that animal represents to his/her human owner. Thus it avoids having to recognize that we share the planet with non-human species who are born with the same right to life that we humans have. Imagine how different things would be if humans could, for example, no longer destroy habitat, poison “nuisance” animals, factory farm them or use them in laboratory experiments.

            Recently a sixty-ish semi-professional woman told me she “got rid” of a stray cat by throwing hot water on him. She laughed coarsely and loudly and said, “That fixed him! He never came back!” When I said, “Why would you do that?” she responded “because I (emphasis on “I”) OWN that property and I didn’t want him there!” This woman, like most less evolved ignorant humans, does not understand that just because you “own” property under the laws of the state, it doesn’t entitle you to injure, terrorize or kill non-human species that may also live there. This is a MORAL concept, not a legal one and most people just don’t get it and don’t care anyway.

  2. How anybody that does this to any animal is not human. Dogs especially love unconditionally and scumbags that mistreat them should have to go to prison, or worse. I can’t stand to see any breathing thing mistreated. It’s a sin against nature!

    • God bless all the people with such compassion and love to help these innocent loving dogs (GOD spelled backwards) have another chance to have a good life with angels that have hearts. God Bless you all !!!
