Poor Marge: Victim of dog fighting peed on herself when rescued

This is Marge, and she is a victim of dog fighting. Hundreds of thousands of dogs are trained to fight and suffer just like this every year. Marge’s hell on earth occurred in Orlando. On Tuesday morning, she was saved by Furever Bully Love Rescue.

“Although dog fighting is a felony in all 50 states, it continues to occur in every part of the country and in every type of community. Fights can happen in a variety of locations ranging from back alleys to carefully-staged enterprises. Fights typically take place in a 14-20 square-foot pit designed to contain the animals. Fights can last just a few minutes or several hours, and both animals may suffer injuries including puncture wounds, lacerations, blood loss, crushing injuries and broken bones. Although fights are not usually to the death, many dogs succumb to their injuries later, and losing dogs are often discarded, killed or brutally executed as part of the ‘sport,'” cites the ASPCA.

It is not known when Marge’s heinous cruelty began, but there will never be another day of misery for her. Rushed to the Crystal Creek Animal Hospital, this terrified dog is missing part of the left side of her face and is covered in puncture wounds. One of the holes is dangerously close to her eye. She reeks of infection and decay.

As heartbreaking as her physical injuries are, Marge is emotionally defeated, but remains a sweet and submissive best friend.

“When she was placed in the car, she immediately went to the ground and peed on herself,” the Forever Bully Love Rescue posted on their social media page. “After she realized we weren’t going to harm her, she climbed into my lap and rolled over for belly rubs. What a loving soul.”

WARNING: The photos are indeed graphic, but this is the reality of dog fighting. If you see something, say something. Marge could have been a dog in anyone’s backyard. She could have been stolen and tortured as a bait dog. She could have been your dog.


Donations are desperately needed to help Marge. They can be called into the Crystal Creek Animal Hospital at 407.203.0741 or sent to PayPal at fureverbullyloverescue@yahoo.com.

    Yep, the more I know dogs, the less I like people. How much this precious baby has suffered and yet she was friendly toward her rescuers. Gotta tell you, I sure wouldn’t be friendly to any human if I was a dog with such horrific injuries. Thoughts and Prayers For sweet Marge that she will survive, heal well and fully recover from her physical and emotional scars and move on to her very own furever home where she will know she is truly loved and completely safe for all the rest of her life. As for the perpetrator/s need I say more than I hope they meet with exactly what they deserve for what they’ve put precious Marge through.

    AND WHY DOES THE “HORRIFIC ” Sport CONTINUE Right UNDER the NOSES of LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES IN the USA!!!! Are our Officers getting Burned OUT and just don’t care> a part of the organization or on the payroll to over look this BULLSHIT!!! This puzzles the Hell out of me!!! Good God What has the Country come too!!!! Sad to say the least!!

      Unfortunately, there are people in high places (including police personnel, chiefs of police, sheriffs, judges, politicians) involved with this. That’s why it keeps going. The the once-in-a-blue-moon bust will only target the dog fighters and breeders who don’t have those firm connections to their peers in higher echelons.

      And then we gave the equally secretive torture of police K9’s, by their handlers and “trainers” behind the scenes. The lying and strict censorship on this subject has many people still denying that it is as widespread as it actually is.

    There is no reason to harm any living being, this is cruelty beyond thought! Wishing all the abusers to suffer a horrible life! May all these INNOCENT animals will be well and go on to have great loving homes!?

    What good are laws if no one upholds them? This is felony animal cruelty and there are a whole lot of evil degenerates, like the monsters that did this to this dog, that should be serving long terms in prison, while instead prisons house WAY too many nonviolent criminals who should instead do community service or something other than rot in prison. Poor dear sweet Marge, it broke my heart to read that she was so scared of her rescuers at first. I hope all her pain is gone What disgusting things some people are, they should not be on this Earth or anywhere else.

    Full cleaning out of all law enforcement officers who live in areas where dog fighting is prevalent and if found to in any way be involved or covering up these fighting places, should be immediately removed from their jobs and put in jail along with those they are protecting.Once we have law enforcement officers who aren’t on the take for these fights, then we will be able to eradicate these scum who use animals to fight for them. Life time jail for those caught using dogs for fighting.
