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 firstname.lastname@example.org
