People who fight dogs are the worst of the worst. They destroy a dog both mentally and physically. This is the story of Abigail. The drive from Miami to Estero was long and painful for the three-year-old dog, who had been abandoned with severe injuries. She’s missing her entire ear and the side of her face. Dr. Jackson believes she was a bait dog used in dog fighting. Yes… they dumped her in this condition!
When Victoria Frazier, Founder of Love is Fur Ever Dog Rescue, in Ft. Myers saw the shocking photo of a dog in terrible shape at a high kill Miami Shelter on social media, she knew she needed to help. She shared it with her trusted veterinarian at Pets First Wellness, Dr. Thomas Jackson, who said, “Go get her!” The asked for our help and we of course said YES! We made a promise that we would help raise the funds needed for her care.
She arrived at the Emergency Vets and doctors performed her first skin-graft surgery. Just look at the photos. What doctors are attempting is nothing short of a miracle. Literally piecing this poor dog-fighting victim back together again. Dr. Jackson took skin from her shoulder and placed it over where her ear used to be. You can see her body is covered in hundreds of stitches. Despite it all she has only love for humans.
Arthrex Clinical Specialist Michelle Chargot saw the story on the local news. She knew Dr. Jackson and immediately jumped in to help by donating an advanced microcurrent generating wound dressing called Jumpstart. This product is used in both the human and animal recoveries. Abby is healing slowly but improving day by day but she still needs your help. Her recovery will not be easy and it will be long but we know if we have your help she can do this!

UPDATE 12-7-16 :Our biggest struggle right now is keeping her activity restricted and preventing scratching the precious skin graft. They are incorporating well so far.
