Heartbreaking: Rescuers helping dog severely injured

In a rural area of Fort Worth, Texas rescue group volunteers from Dallas Dog RRR – Rescue. Rehab. Reform posted a very disturbing photo of Champ; a severely injured dog found wandering in a rural area late Thursday afternoon. No one knows what happened to Champ; the horror and disbelief of his story remains shocking:

“We literally sat back in complete shock, horror and disbelief when we saw his condition. What could possibly have inflicted that kind of injury?? Half of Champs face is nearly ripped off. His left nostril is missing and his jaw is shredded. His teeth look like they have been ground down. Is it possible that someone actually did this to him?,” wrote the group’s moderator on their Facebook page. “He has no other obvious signs of trauma anywhere else on his body. He is emaciated with his ribs protruding. We cannot bear to think what he has lived through. How much pain and suffering and neglect did he have to endure before he was found. We don’t even want to think about it !”

Advocates came together and quickly were able to network Champ’s plight from the local shelter. He has since been rushed to the organization’s partner veterinarian hospital where he is currently being evaluated and provided with the care he needs. How these egregious injuries occurred are not known.

Katelyn CourtrightThank y’all for taking him. He’s from my neck of the woods. I helped network his original post from the local shelter. We speculated that maybe he was shot? Or this was the result of a fire cracker? Both are not unheard of around here but there would be pretty obvious evidence of either that could be found during an exam of the injuries. Please keep us updated on any answers you find. I would like to believe this was a terrible accident…. But sadly it was likely not.”

Champ will require major reconstructive surgery if he survives. Veterinarians are shocked at the dog’s condition and the pain this sweet dog has endured. To help with Champ’s medical needs, donations can be made: http://dallasdogrrr.org/donate-online/

    The teeth ground down is classic bait dog. The firecracker theory is possible, too, maybe AFTER he was dumped from his bait dog “job” – there are too many sick people in this world. I hope Champ can be helped.

    OMG! Thank you rescuers! Hoping Champ pulls through. I thought perhaps an animal trap, but, with the teeth grounded maybe not.

    This is inexcusable! With his teeth grounded he couldn’t even protect himself. I hope Champ makes it and find a wonderful family that will protect and love him. Whoever caused Champ so much pain and suffering should be thrown in the lion’s den as “bait”.

    Dear God, when will our judicial system realize how rampant dog abuse is???? When will they make thrse murderers and torturers face justice???? This is insane. Must we, the citizens, take it upon ourselves to seek out the abusers and administer our own justice? This has to stop……..one way or another. Enough is enougj!

    I recently heard that the rescue has lost their 501(c)3 status. Good lord, I hope he didn’t jump from the frying pan into the fire

    This animal is a test. And we will not fail her. she is a medical anomaly.she survived weinning and she is strong. I do not believe she will be incontant, she has a sphinker thats tied up with with adheisians. They can be cut and will alow her to pass food. she has an anus, its not functional. This is a surgical proceedure. get her to a vet medical resurch institution.
    asap
