The shelter staff and volunteers at the Polk County Georgia Animal Adoption and Recovery Shelter posted the heartbreaking video of a white Shiba Inu puppy who came in on Monday as a stray. She was immediately taken to the shelter’s veterinarian for emergency care.
Animal advocate Shannon Hicks describes the frightened puppy and is asking the rescue community for help.
“She came in with horrendous wounds. She has what looks like an injury to her face and back. Her back is very raw and open. She also has markings around her muzzle that (in my non expert opinion) looks like someone used something to hold her mouth together – again I am not a vet but that’s exactly what the wound makes me think. I hope I am wrong because that is just sick.”
Check out the Shiba Inu puppy’s video. She is so frightened and defeated; all she wants to do is find a way to disappear. Notice, even with her severe and painful injuries, she shows no aggression.
