Dog found with carabiner hook and chain

On Monday afternoon, Detroit Animal Care and Control reached out to the rescuers at Detroit Dog Rescue asking for emergency assistance. And although a carabiner hook and chain had literally grown into the friendly dog’s neck obviously causing excruciating pain, the dog was happy to greet his rescuers with exuberance  happily wagging his tail; rescuers quickly dubbed him ‘Courage.’

 

“How? How did it get this bad,” the rescue organization posted on their Facebook page pleading for help from their supporters. “This is something you only see in horror films. The pain is unimaginable.”

 

“We need your help tonight. This dog has a chain stuck in his neck. It’s literally in his skin, growing through his neck and he’s still wagging his tail. Thank goodness our compassionate friends at Detroit Animal Care and Control called us on this case and we are rushing him in for emergency care. We know this will require surgery and extensive care to save his life.”

Not only had the carabiner hook and chain grown into Courage’s neck, but when found, he had been dragging a 15-pound tow chain – the kind used to pull cars and trucks. Sadly, the dog is also heartworm positive and is expected to have a long road to recovery.

“We’re asking everyone to help him… His medical care and treatment are estimated to reach over $6,000. Courage deserves to wake up from a life that has been such a nightmare.”

Wishing you a speedy recovery Courage.

      I totally agree with you !!! Animal abusers MUST be stopped harsher penalties are needed to do that. It’s time we elected politicians to take a hard stand against them.
