Marshmallow was used as  a bait dog; her sweetness and kindness unprecedented, but greed and cruelty know no boundaries. Who could even imagine an innocent and passive dog restrained and thrown into a  fighting arena as “bait” to train fighting dogs, yet the tortured dog became another innocent victim of dog fighting bait practice.bait-dog-jackie

On Saturday, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC‘s co-founder Jackie O’Sullivan, received a call from a local  shelter in Columbia, South Carolina asking for emergency help. A three-year-old dog badly injured dog had been brought into the shelter with open wounds and abscesses. The shelter had been working to get the dog released; sections of her face and neck had been ripped apart.bait-dog-jackie-2

Marshmallow was immediately transferred to the organization’s partner veterinarian where she has been receiving 24/7 care including surgery to  repair some of her most serious injuries.

“We are committed to helping her not overcome her physical wounds, but her emotional wounds also. Everyone who has met her says she is the sweetest dog-of course she is. It made her the perfect mark for these cruel abusers,” stated Jackie.

While dog fighting remains a serious issue in the South, the heinous “sport” can pop up anywhere. Be vigilant – report all suspicious activity of animal abuse. Be the voice for those who cannot speak. Tragically, cases like Marshmallow still happen much too often; her photos reflect her suffering. You are forever safe sweet angel, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC promise you that.bait-dog-jackie-5

    Hell can’t get these damned dog fighters soon enough! They should be publicly hanged whenever they’re found along with whoever is watching their grisly spectacles. That might put an end to this barbarous practice.

      I can hardly see through the tears to type right now and I am sick to my stomach reading this, but I hope it will bring attention to this horrendous act of dog fighting. These poor creatures are the modern day version of the gladiators – sickening???????

    If you find them, the knuckle dragging cowards, too lazy to work, too ignorant to care, who feel big and bad with the dog, kill them. They will not change and they are breeding a new generation of lazy soulless sub humans. They need to pay for what they have inflicted on innocent living souls.
