A sweet shelter pup named Myers suffered serious injuries after being attacked by an “unexpected visitor” at the Darlington County Humane Society in South Carolina. On Monday, the Darlington County HS Rescue Facebook page posted images of the battered dog, and explained what happened:
We had a VERY unexpected visitor on our shelter grounds last night and my heart is breaking for our good friend Myers who got really, really beat up! A dead opossum was found near the laundry room area – the culprit no less!
Myers had gotten out of his kennel and was found hunkered down inside his igloo this morning with his door wide open.
Myers has been at the shelter since October, and those who know him are hoping against hope that someone will find it in their heart to give him a home. The group shares Myers’ many attributes, writing:
He has tested well with both male and female dogs, loves everyone and yet, he sits and now he is all ripped up, his face swollen and he’s in pain. He is at the vet now and hopes soon maybe, just maybe he will get a break and go home or to rescue. He has endured so much and never complains and just smiles and wags his tail as you approach his kennel.
As to the injuries…Myers was taken to a veterinarian for treatment and he is recuperating:
He is going to our Bridge Facility to get some extra TLC, which he certainly needs and deserves. He is on meds and his wounds need to be cleaned daily. Myers will visit the vet at the end of the week for a recheck.
