Dakota’s eyes tell it all… the abuse, the neglect, the pain. He has seen it all.
When he wandered into a kind woman’s yard, it was the best thing that could ever happen to him.
She was not scared of him, even though he could look scary to some ~ with his ears cropped to his head and his neck dripping with infection. She let him inside and then contacted animal control.
And thanks to a great animal control group that recognized he needed medical care ASAP, he joined us yesterday afternoon.
When Dakota shakes his head as he walks, the infection discharge flies from side to side. I tried to look in his ear and he laid his head in the grass. Whatever is down there must hurt because he guarded that ear from me peeking inside.
But never once did he growl or snap. He just kept scooting farther and farther away from me. In fact, getting him to look up at me was nearly impossible. He looks down or away, as if he’s ashamed.
I suspect his neck infection was caused by a prong collar. He has the same wounds in two different places on his neck. And he has bite marks on his body. He’s a young Bulldog with a horrible past.
He’s also a tiny fella… probably less than 30 lbs. Hard to believe he was once a fat little Bulldog puppy and his owners did this to him. And watched him suffer. It takes a sick person to do this and do nothing to help.
