12-pound dog brutally hit on head suffered blunt force trauma

Who can imagine anyone hitting a 12-pound dog on the head so brutally that he suffered serious blunt force trauma, but a rural shelter in Georgia reached out to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC for help on Wednesday with a photo and a phone call. Few words were needed; tiny Charles was an emergency and needed immediate help. charles-the-rdr

Charles was transferred to the organization’s partner veterinarian in Georgia where he was given life-saving treatment According to Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, the defenseless little pup must have endured unfathomable pain. No one knows for how long:

“X-rays were taken and Charles’s eye was immediately removed. Our medical team discovered during surgery that this injury was much worse than it appeared to initially be, and in fact Charles also sustained severe head and jaw fractures as well, directly as a result of being hit with blunt force. Charles now needs a CT scan tomorrow to exactly pin point where the head and jaw fractures are located and then determine a plan for a second surgery.”

On Thursday, surgeons removed Charles’ eye and the gentle, little dog is reported to be resting comfortably.  CT Scans confirmed a skull fracture as well as a jaw fracture in two places. Veterinarians agree the injuries are consistent with Charles having been struck with intense force on his head. Plans are now being made for his second surgery.

By no means is rescuing an easy job. As compassionate humans, most of us are in shock when we see such overt acts of human depravity, but that is tragically the reality of how some people treat companion animals. Be the voice for those who cannot speak. Report animal abuse – don’t turn around because you don’t want to see – call the authorities and be their advocate.

    Has our world gone mad ? My God what is wrong with the people that do these things ? You have to be one sick twisted person to do this to a poor innocent dog and a little dog that weighs 12 lbs. I truly hope karma gets you and you get what you deserve because you are nothing more then wasted flesh. i hope this little puppy heals quickly.

    If ever there was a case for an eye for an eye…God let this human scum be found and punished, what a gentle baby utterly defenceless and entirely undeserving (who the hell would be deserving of treatment like this?!). Where was Charles found?
