A severely wounded puppy, with the skin completely ripped from his lower jaw, was discovered alone in the woods. The heartbreaking situation was released to followers of the Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs Facebook page on April 15, along with a video of the injured pup:
How in the world did this baby boy get into the woods all by himself ? Did someone dump him there and leave him for dead ? What maniacal monster did this ?? Was he savagely torn by another animal ? Was he used as a bait dog ? Is it possible this was done at the hands of humans ? The skin on his jaw is 100% completely ripped off.
The pup, dubbed “Aiden,” was rushed to a veterinarian for care. On Sunday, the rescue agency wrote:
He arrived at Vet Ranch last night — what a sad sight!!!!
His dead skin was all cleaned and his jaw was wrapped. He is able to eat and drink — in this video you can see that his actual jaw is intact but the lower part has been degloved. Surgery cannot be scheduled just yet. The plan is to keep an eye on him to make sure nothing becomes infected .. once the vet determines it is safe to close him up then the surgery will be scheduled. Please keep Aiden in your prayers.
What happened to this innocent puppy remains a mystery – fortunately, he was found and he is now receiving life-saving care. Follow Aiden’s journey at this link.
