Chester was used as bait!

Chester was used as bait!

 

Chester has been used and abused by dog fighters. The video of him bleeding in his kennel caught the eye of rescuers. This video was taken as evidence. He approached the volunteer as she entered his kennel, leaving a trail of blood behind him. Slowly Chester returned to his corner in the back of the shelter and started tending to his wound. Sadly, he had lived through this before, injured with puncture wounds from dogfighting.

His body tells us his past though his eyes shows us his pain. This innocent baby is 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 where he is receiving life saving medical care. His body is destroyed including old and new puncture wounds. Here is what we know.

Chester is resting comfortably and he is on antibiotics for infection and pain medication. He has been bathed. He had stitches on his ears that were ripped apart and stitches on the deep gashes all over his body. He is also having a full blood work up and X-rays to make sure there are no broken bones.


UPDATE 3-28-17 : Chester has spent the last few days since rescue at the ER vet in south Texas. Today he was well enough to move to RDR's primary vet for continued medical care. You can see the remarkable difference in Chesters appearance and health in only a few days. He still has deep gashes all over his body that have been stitched and will now start the healing process including his ears which were ripped in many places.

Now we are asking for your help. We have created this special page to help raise funds needed to save Chester’s life and support Rescue Dogs Rock. Everything you see on Chester’s page from a tee shirt, tote bag, hoodie and necklace helps us reach our goal and helps Chester get the second chance at life he deserves. These items make great gifts. Please help become his voice.


ADOPTED 4-9-17: Remember Chester? Well here he is today after arriving from Texas to NY in the arms of his new Mom! Chester has been adopted! 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! This is the power behind a Hendrick & Co product!
