There are no words…just grief over the loss of a dog who was shot and attacked with an ax. The pit bull, dubbed Bert, had been making progress – even passing the “critical” phase and being allowed to continue his recovery at a vet clinic before going to a foster home. But things took a turn…and now he is gone.
Mac the pitbull broke the sad news to Facebook followers on Thursday night:
We really have no words. Something maybe gave way in his terribly damaged traumatic brain injury on the ride to the step down vet here in our hometown. He was suffering horribly and not coming out of it so we decided the best option for him was to give him peace.
We deeply thank VSS and Skyview’s staff for such compassion and efforts for Bert. We really can not breathe and need some time to process this because our hearts are truly bleeding tonight. Sweet Bert please know the entire world tried so damn hard for you. #justiceforBert
Bert suffered horrible injuries before being treated…someone had shot him in the face and then he was hit in the head with an ax. Somehow he survived the awful injuries…but help apparently came too late.
At least he knew the touch of kind and compassionate people before he was gone. Rest in peace Bert.
