On Monday, the Kentucky-based animal welfare agency, The Arrow Fund, took in a suspected victim of abuse. The non-profit group warned Facebook followers that the images of the pup were graphic.

The post about what is believed to have happened to this abused pup reads:

****WARNING: Graphic Photo****


We have been contacted about this boy in Hazard, Kentucky. Foul play is suspected. Police have been contacted.

The Arrow Fund added:

The former owner was told the heinous injury was allegedly caused by someone who violently kicked this dog in the face. He is headed to BluePearl in Louisville for treatment and will now reside under the care of The Arrow Fund. The surgeon is on standby as is our President/Founder Rebecca Eaves, who will greet him with love.

The Arrow Fund added a subsequent update noting that the 10-month-old puppy is being called “Banjo,” and that he is in “critical” shape.

More updates will be posted as Banjo’s condition becomes more clearly known.

Donations can be made at and checks may be mailed to The Arrow Fund, P.O.Box 1127, Prospect, Kentucky, 40059.

    Poor baby!!! I hope the person who did this is going to be charged and found that he intentionally did this. He should go straight to Prison and I hope if he does he gets kicked in the mouth as soon as he opens it. Stupid ASSHOLE!!!

    Someone kicked him in the face? Who sliced him up and let him get so poor he has skin issues? I think this poor baby needs a new family to love him. I hope he can be repaired.

    This ‘former’ owner needs to be interrogated as I strongly suspect they are responsible for Banjo’s horrific injuries – and whoever this redneck bastard is they should be nailed to a tree and used as target practice as that is ALL they are good for. Hope Banjo recovers and gets the safe loving home he obviously never had. Thank you to the Arrow Fund for coming through for this innocent puppy.

  8. Star Shelley says:

    Sending prayers,for Banjo recovery and a loving home and a sending karma to the low life asshole call human, hope they have nightmares forI the rest of their pathetic life with no peace in their heart, soul and mind.
