RESCUERS DISCOVER AN ABUSIVE DOG LEFT IN THE TRASH, HE COULD BARELY MOVE HIS HEAD

Rescuers Discover An Abusive Dog Left In The Trash, He Could Barely Move His Head.

Charlie the Pit Bull most certainly would have perished in the garbage dump if it weren’t for the kindness of a Good Samaritan who discovered him.

Nikki Rubino saw Charlie laying in the garbage near to a dumpster. He had head wounds, was coated in dirt, and had been bitten by flies.

Nikki’s name appeared in a post on Facebook about a puppy that had been abandoned in the trash next to a leisure area. Nikki, who had worked as a veterinary technician for many years, could tell just by looking at him that he was very close to passing away.

When she first approached Charlie to untie the cord that was fastening him to a pole, he remained still and did not respond to her. It was a marvel that he could even raise his head at all after all he had been through.

His condition has been described as “touch-and-go” ever since Nikki and a friend were able to get him into the car and drive him as swiftly as they could to the Philadelphia Animal Hospital. But a sizable number of individuals are uniting to help the Pit bull, who is now 2 years old, recover.

The Philadelphia Animal Hospital posted a message on their Facebook page that said, “The following picture is hard to look at but extremely essential.”

The animal hospital stated, “We understand that this is not an isolated incidence, and it is a sad tragedy when innocent creatures are handled in such a manner,” saying that they are aware that this is not an unique incident. “Charlie is a really well-natured dog who is in good health at the moment.” The veterinarians are “doing all they can” to guarantee that he will recover.

Charlie’s injuries are being investigated by the Humane Law Enforcement Unit of the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

Charlie did indeed have a microchip, according to the PSPCA, who claimed to have implanted it as part of their front clinic and immunization clinic services. Charlie’s wounds suggest that he was used as a bait dog in dog fights, based on his injuries.

There has been an outpouring of support in the form of contributions for Charlie, and the Philadelphia Animal Hospital has asked that any further donations be sent to the City of Elderly Love: Save a Senior Pet organization instead.

On their Facebook page, City of Elderly Love commented, “While not our normal rescue, Charlie’s great finders definitely delivered him to the perfect location.” (While not our typical rescue.) “Because we are the Philadelphia Animal Hospital’s only rescue partner, we will be in charge of his post-recovery care.

He will be looked after and treated for free at the Philadelphia Animal Hospital. We are crossing our fingers that the outstanding Humane Law Enforcement team in Philadelphia will be successful in finding Charlie’s abusers and prosecuting them.

Since Charlie was rescued on October 26, 2017, it has been a few days, and there are some encouraging indicators that he is making a recovery. Despite the fact that the doctors are still quite worried about Charlie contracting sepsis due to his wounds, there are some hopeful signals he is recuperating. On October 29, three days after he was rescued, he is “happy galloping about” the hospital where he is being treated.

Charlie is resilient, and the most difficult part of this ordeal is behind him, according to the rescue organization. “There is no fixed schedule on his rehabilitation, and we’ll have to tackle it day by day,” they stated. The procedure to remove more of the dead tissue from his face is scheduled to take place tomorrow. Although he will need a number of surgeries in order to achieve a complete recovery, he is now in a better state of comfort than he has been in a very long time.

His rescuers are making sure he gets lots of hugs and sleep as he recovers from his tragedy. The veterinary institution added, “He will have surgery tomorrow to remove most of the dead tissue around his face and snout. Even though it will only be the first of several procedures he will require, it is a step in the right direction. In terms of eating, he is doing well, and he is much more at ease than he has ever been! It is a blessing that there are kindhearted people like Nikki, as well as rescuers and medical professionals, who are attempting to preserve Charlie’s life and guarantee his bright future.
