Achilles face was completely torn to shreds from dog fighting.

 

Orlando, FL: We have a heartbreaking case. This is the true face of dog fighting. These people who do this are cowards! I know these images are graphic and shocking but we cannot hide what has happened here. I apologize in advance but desperately need your help. Our partners at Furever Bully Love Rescue rushed Achilles to their emergency vet clinic for immediate pain medications and emergency care to stabilize him. As I am sure you know this baby is in critical condition. His muzzle is completely mangled almost beyond recognition.

Achilles was rushed into the surgery room. Doctors were completely shocked by what they saw. Achilles first surgery lasted about four hours. He did very well during and after surgery. Sadly this is just the beginning. We have created this campaign to help raise the funds needed to save Achilles. This case is under investigation. 

Achilles is conscious and wagging his tail even though his snout has been ripped to shreds. He has many wounds all over his head as well. He had a fractured back leg at one point, that has healed. One tooth was extracted as well. He will need several more surgeries, skin graphs and months of rehabilitation. He received all his testing, X-rays, cultures etc.
His rescuers at Furever Bully Love Rescue wrote, “This is just the beginning of his healing process. We have no doubts or regrets saving this angel... and look forward to watching him blossom from his life as he was holding on to so tightly. Achilles is a strong little boy filled with love and a will to live.”


UPDATE 2-26-18: Achilles completed his first of a series on surgeries last night. It was a 3 hour surgery. His necrotic facial parts were removed and a tooth. He does have a partial nose. The right part of his face is completely missing and currently has a wet/dry bandage in place until future skin graft surgeries are completed.


UPDATE 3-2-18: “Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls” New day, new month, new life. He had his face bandage changed today and he is already having new tissue growth which is excellent! As soon as there is enough new skin doctors can start with his skin grafting. To prevent any potential infections he’s not able to go outside just yet so he remains hospitalized.


UPDATE 3-8-18: Achilles had his first skin graft surgery today. Here is after the surgery. The skin was not taken from another animal. His own skin was used and stretched to fill in the hole. Dr V wanted to make sure the blood flow was not interrupted. We will know in a few days if the surgery was successful and if the skin graft stuck. WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP! 


UPDATE 4-3-18: Achilles has had very limited outside time and only exposure he gets is to his vet appointments. This has been simply for his health and reduce any chances of infections or unnecessary exposures. He is finally able to enjoy some outside air for limited monitored time and potty breaks. He has gained some weight too! His antibiotic injections are still being given twice a day and he's doing wonderful with them. Everyday he experiences something new and exciting. If possible he is happier and happier as the days go by. If his face doesn’t change your mind and make you love a little more than we don’t know what will.

To help save Achilles please consider purchasing one of his shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. They make a beautiful gifts and give knowing you helped save this poor baby from horrible abuse and pain!
