I received this from a friend who has worked with me to save many dogs and she is just sick over this ---






Yes, She’s in GA and at a rescuer’s house-they are taking her to vet tonight. She was attacked by two of his dogs. You can have them contact [email protected]

Here's her pictures and story:

I was at Petsmart today for adoptions and there was a phone call for "the rescue group there". Usually they want to know how long we're there or if we have small dogs or whatever. Not today. The guy said he has a GSD he had for 3 yrs and he "recently got" 2 Presa Canarios who are "trying to tear the dog apart". So.... he wants to give up the GSD. WHAT???? He had the male Presa and GSD who is apparently great with his kids but stays in the yard, then he got a female Presa to breed and she started attacking the GSD and so did the male. I told him to just bring her (as much as I'm trying NOT to take anything in and would say no to most people, I knew this dog was doomed). I asked him the physical shape of the dog and he said she had 3 or 4 punctures.

He pulls up with the dog in the back of his pick up and she is bleeding A LOT from her front leg that has about 3" of skin/muscle torn down to the bone. The flap is still there but it's DEEP. And several other punctures. I just took the dog, took her into Banfield to have them w rap it (they're WAY too expensive so we took her to another ER vet). She needed several stitches, 2 drains, sedatives, and is on antibiotics and pain meds. One of our volunteers thankfully was able to take her and is keeping her at least for a couple days in her bathroom while she heals, then she will go to stay @ our vet.

And the owner who caused this... did he offer any contribution to the rescue for her care?

What if Chrissy couldn't have helped? He wasn't even honest about the extent of her injuries.

This is disgusting. I am thankful that the rescuer took her in. The poor dog. Ugh, I really feel sick. Another irresponsible person who shouldn't be allowed to have dogs or kids.

It was me who took her in. He didn't contribute anything but I have his card and e-mailed him the pics now that it's shaved strongly suggesting he makes a contribution towards her care.

We didn't really have space or funds for her but sometimes you can't turn dogs away and when I heard her situation I knew she'd be bad off if we didn't take her... I still was shocked when I saw her.

That poor dog she must be in pain. Thank you for helping her. I hate to think what would have happened if you were not able to take her in. I sure hope he watches the kids with the other dogs.

I'm sending a donation. This is terrible. In SC, the there is a vote tomorrow on chaining. Since I adopted a "chained dog" this is very near and dear to my heart.

Re: Cher - Attached by dogs in Ga. Poor girl :(

oh my god....this is horrible!!! It really does leave me speechless... there is no way in **** anyone can justify allowing this to happen to a dog!!! And then to not do anything??? Not take the dog to the vet...not do anything for the dog....what the h-ll was he driving around with this dog in its condition in the back of his truck for???? Thank god this dog was taken in and I can only pray he will recover from both his emontional as well as physical wounds.

Doesn't it scare you to death thinking that this guy now has two Presa Canarios and what he is going to be doing with them?

I'm so glad you were there to rescue Poor Cher, I pray that her leg will function and heal quickly.

Oh you are an angel for taking her in. Her owner should be shot! He should be reported to the local police for having attack dogs. Next time with those kind of dogs it could be his kids or kids around the area. Not wishing him any bad luck but what come around goes around he could be next!
