Chester has a new Mommy!

Posted by hendrickandco 04/10/2017 0 Comment(s) Animal Stories,

Chester went from being used and abused by dog fighters to being adopted by his new Mommy! This is the power behind a Hendrick & Co. product! We first saw a video of him bleeding in his kennel. This video was taken as evidence and went viral. Thankfully it caught the eye or rescuers and they immediately went into action.

His body told us his past was tragic and painful. His eyes told that he had never been loved. This innocent baby was yet another victim of dog baiting. Dog-baiting is the setting of game dogs against a chained or confined animal for sport. The dogs bite and tear the bait dog to subdue the opposing animal by killing it. To insure their dogs aren't damaged, they will either use duct tape to tape the bait dog's mouth shut, or break out their teeth so the bait dog can't fight back.

Rescue Dogs Rocks rushed Chester to the Emergency Vet. His body was destroyed including old and new puncture wounds. They had no idea what they were getting into but volunteers knew they had to do something. 

Chester spent weeks at the ER vet in south Texas where he was saved off the streets. Then he was transported to Rescue Dogs Rock in New York. He still had deep gashes all over his body that were stitched. Even his ears had to be stitched back together. His recovery was intensive but he is a fighter and we never gave up on him.

Thanks to your support his rescuers were able to give Chester the care he needed! That is the power behind one of our animal saving shirts, hoodies or accessories. Everything on Chester’s page from a tee shirt, tote bag, hoodie and necklace helped us reach our goal and helped Chester get the second chance at life.

Now, we have the best news of all. Mr. Chester has been adopted. Yes, you read that right! Chester is healthy for the most part except for his heart worm treatment which will be completed soon. We could not have asked for a better beginning for Chester! We love you Chester and your new Mommy! Continue to help us save more animals just like him.
