Dog found emaciated, without ears or tongue, fights for life

The state Penny was found in is heartbreaking. The neglect and acts of cruelty she suffered have left indelible scars, but her rescuers are determined to do their utmost to ensure that she enjoys a pleasant and peaceful life.

A good samaritan picked up Penny as she wandered on Lincoln Avenuein the canton of Hubbard in the state ofOhio to United States. It was obvious that the young dog needed help. The man therefore drove her without waiting to The Healthy Hearts and Paws Projectan organization dedicated to rescuing pets.

Upon arrival of Penny, the finding was dramatic. She was extremely emaciated, her ears had been cut off and a gaping wound on her hindquarters was full of maggots.

Faced with so much misery, the volunteers at the shelter feel helpless. However, Penny deserves to be given all the care it needs. “ His condition upon arrival was heartbreaking to say the least. We also noticed that there seemed to be a problem in his mouth which was limiting his ability to eat and drink”said Jason Cookethe founder of the center, to Newsweek.

The animal doctor has indeed detected 2 small tumors that will have to be removed during surgery. In addition, one of his lips is completely torn from the gum line. In addition, almost all of his teeth and tongue are missing due to trauma.

“She will need to be hand fed and watered with a syringe for the foreseeable future… She is also unable to pant so should avoid high temperatures”added Jason.

Nevertheless, Penny demonstrates unparalleled resilience and is grateful to the volunteers at the shelter. It will be a long road before she can enjoy life, but her rescuers are convinced that she will be able to adapt. “She is a very loving and super sweet girl. She definitely has the will to live and still acts like a normal dog in all other respects”said a spokesperson.

At the same time, a kitty was launched to help pay for treatment and a complaint was filed against its owner, still unknown today.
