On Tuesday morning, a Good Samaritan contacted the BelAire Kansas Police Department about an injured dog found lying in a ditch along a rural Wichita road. The abandoned dog suffered from shock, dehydration and suffered from severe puncture and laceration wounds to his head, face and muzzle.


“The poor guy was found dumped this morning in a ditch on 53rd St. N. between Rock Road and Webb Road here in Bel Aire. With the help of Heartland Animal Hospital and Sedgwick County Animal Control, the little guy was stabilized and taken by Animal Control to a vet for treatment of injuries. Doesn’t this just break your heart? At this point we do not know where he came from and how he sustained his injuries. Anyone with information please come forward and contact the Police Department at 316-744-6000 or comment on this post,” the police department posted on their Facebook page.

Tragically a “bait dog” can be any dog, however criminals dealing in dog fighting tend to find the most submissive pups who won’t fight back.

The rescue group, Beauties and Beasts, Inc. have committed to helping this boy with his medical and emotional care.

“If no owner comes forward he will need placement ready when he is released from hospitalization to avoid transfer to the shelter. Please let us know ASAP if you can help. If you know something, say something. He cannot speak for himself and deserves his story to be told. Please Contact the BelAire PD at 316-744-6000 with any information to assist with the investigation.”

    I am very glad this furbaby was saved and is getting the veterinary help he needs!!! I hope he can find a new furever family ASAP where he will be treated as a beloved family member. I know from personal experience that former bait dogs are wonderful family members……

    As for the POSs who abused him (& the many other dogs & cats who didn’t survive)…… there are reserved places in Hell waiting for them where they will burn forever for their cruelty!!!
