A horribly injured dog, whose snout has been literally shredded, has been rescued in Florida. The photo of the dog, dubbed Achilles, is so graphic that it has been edited for viewing…

On Wednesday, Furever Bully Love Rescue, in Orlando, Florida, posted a photo of Achilles and wrote:

This baby is NOT at the shelter. This dog was found in Mims off of Lake Harney. He is conscious and wagging his tail even though his snout has been ripped to shreds. He has wounds all over his head as well. We don’t know what happened to him, but we would be willing to help him.

Amazingly, despite the horrific injuries on Achilles, he still managed to wag his tail in apparent gratitude to his rescuers. Achilles is no longer suffering alone – he has been taken to Crystal Creek Animal Hospital and he will soon be undergoing the first of many surgeries.

The rescue group wrote:

We just visited him at Crystal Creek Animal Hospital. He is scheduled for his first surgery today. Yesterday he received all his testing, X-rays, cultures etc. He did drink & eat last night. He was left on a IV for fluids & medications. He will need a series of surgeries to try to correct his injuries. We will update once his first surgery is completed today 🐾

Individuals who would like to help support Achilles’ veterinary care can made a donation directly to the veterinary hospital at (407) 203-0743‬ under Furever Bully Love Rescue account or via PayPal at saveapittyaday@hotmail.com

    I saw the unedited version of the picture on Facebook – I couldn’t believe the dog was still alive but thank God he is. Looks like he was used as a bait dog, to get those kinds of injuries. I hope he makes a complete recovery.

    Looks like his from legs are also in bad condition and suspect he was used as a bait dog several times. Hope the authorities find out who did this and put them away forever.

    Prayers for this precious furbaby. We hope he fully recovers and is adopted into a furever family where he will be a beloved and treasured family member.
    We adopted a “bait dog”…… it took a long time for that poor traumatized furbaby to trust people again……
    The POS who tortured this treasure is beyond disgusting…. Throw him in prison and lose the keys….. I know that anyone who is intentionally cruel to a furbaby will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty…… hope they get there ASAP……. after suffering a terrible death alone and afraid…..

    Whoever did this to Achilles was more than likely a dogfighter and Achilles was used as bait – and as usual, authorities make little to no effort to reign in these bastards and when they do, a brain dead judge gives them a little slap on the hand and they walk out – and the dogs are killed like they are the criminals – there is no justice for animals in this country – unless its street justice. This poor dog suffered terribly and I only pray the bastards who did this get the same.
