Nero: Puppy doused with tar makes full recovery because of Good Samaritans

Posted by hendrickandco 11/19/2017 0 Comment(s) Animal Stories,

It is astonishing that it has been 4 years since we first introduced you to Nero. Nero, only a 7-week-old puppy, was found on a work camp near Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan after he had been doused with a tar-like substance and lit on fire.

Named Nero by those who were originally taking care of him, the mixed breed pup was suffering from life-threatening burns to his face and neck. Those who found him did not even know if he would make it. 

His rescuers immediately reached out to Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) and AARCS took him into their family to provide emergency care. 

Nero had no identification. It was obvious that this seven-week-old puppy had endured terrible abuse. Immediately, Nero underwent emergency surgery to clean his wounds and wrap him. His ears were so badly burned that they fell off during the surgery. His eyelids were were completely singed. 

Nero was in foster care with AARCS healing and received numerous and aggressive treatment for his burns. AARCS and the Saskatchewan SPCA opened an investigation to find out who was responsible for the injuries. However, investigators came up short as the abuser was never identified.

Christmas came early in 2013 for this loving puppy, and rescuers were thrilled when they had found an adoptive family for Nero, sending him to loving home for Christmas. The Seth family, who previously adopted two other AARCS dogs, were more than happy to take in Nero and his remaining time of treatment to nurse him back to a normal, happy-go-lucky dog.

Today, Nero looks like a totally different dog. He is no longer a puppy. Though his eyelids still show the signs of abuse he had to endure, his life is entirely changed. He now lives on a ranch in Canada, where he plays with his rescue siblings and horses.
