The cruelty

Justice was discovered by a good Samaritan on November 2 – his body was covered in burns and he was taken to a veterinarian for life-saving care. On Tuesday, the animal shelter updated Facebook followers about the burned dog’s condition:

I wanted to finally update you on our sweet Justice as it has been awhile. The first picture was taken on Saturday, November 3 when he first entered IndyVet Emergency & Specialty Hospital. The final two pictures were taken in the past several days, which shows Justice without his bandages. The chemicals caused his skin to die and slough off. Later they realized it was best for the surgeon to debride all of the dead tissue. We have been seeing Justice a lot (thanks to Jarrika’s pictures) of him wrapped like a mummy in his bandages. As you can see, he is starting to grow healthy tissue.
