A battered dog, believed to have been used as a so-called “bait dog” for illegal dog fighting, is urgently in need of help at an animal shelter in California. The dog, not even two years of age, has been held at the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter since August 11.

The following information was provided about the dog, ID#A476793, from a rescue coordinator:

 It looks as if he was used as a bait dog. He is missing a portion of his front lip and may end up having to lose more of it. When he came in, his face was so swollen, and infected that and he could barely eat. He is doing much better now and wags his tail when someone enters the room. He hasn’t shown any aggression towards any of the shelter staff regardless of how much pain he was in and what they were doing to him to treat him. They said that you could tell that he wants to be with people despite what “people” have done to him. He’s scared but wants to love someone and more than anything, he wants someone to love him

He is scared, but wants to be loved – he is hurt and he needs help. The shelter has labeled this battered dog “rescue only.” You can help find a reputable rescue group to take this dog in by sharing his information.

The past cannot be erased, but the future can definitely be improved – please take a moment to help.

    This is so sad. I hope a rescue will step up and save the poor pup. Dog fighting must be stopped and the perpetrators be fined and imprisoned. This blood sport is disgusting and can not be tolerated in our society.

    Poor baby!!! My heart aches for him. Unfortunately there is plenty of it in the E St Louis IL area also. Tougher laws and police need to work to stop this!!!

    There has got to be a way to ‘REIGN HELL” down on these dog fighters. Tighten the laws to the point that REGARDLESS if you are part of dog fighting, or a spectator watching this abuse, YOU GO TO JAIL FOR 5 YEARS. No plea deals, no getting off with a slap on the wrist. YOU GO TO JAIL.

    This is when I wish I would the biggest lottery win to give the places that would care for dogs like this. People and organizations that rescue these animals are blessed people who give so much of themselves. Pray this dog can be in a loving home soon. Police need to shut these dog fighting places down and I am sure they know exactly where they are.
