Colette cowers in fear at the sight of humans after being used as bait.
Warning this is a graphic case of dog fighting. Her purpose was to be shredded and obliterated after her abuser was done using her. Many turned their back on her before animal control saw her and took her to the shelter. Colette has endured the most horrific forms of abuse, not only was she used as bait in a dog fighting ring but she was bred at least 3 or 4 times at not even 4 years old. Her body is destroyed from this abuse. In her abusers eyes, she was meant to be ripped apart and as you can see, she has hundreds of puncture wounds, new and old, to show for it. Her Jaw is shattered in pieces and she is Heartworm positive.
Mutilating her obviously didn't matter as she was clearly subjected to it over and over again. Was she tied to a tree or thrown in the ring? I don't know but there is a very active cruelty investigation going on within the jurisdiction she was found in. Now we must focus on trying to save her lief.
She was defenseless in excruciating pain as every inch of her was mauled. The raw and aggressive experience violated every part of her body and soul. Tortured by her own kind , at the end of the day a human was responsible for this. Colette's psyche is in as bad a shape as her exterior. Volunteers from Second Chance Rescue NYC rushed to the shelter to pull her to safety. She cowers in fear at the sight of humans. Will you help us help save this innocent girl’s life? Her name is Colette, and you will never hurt her again.
Colette was cracked repeatedly with a break stick. Her teeth are destroyed which is why her jaw appears crooked or looks like she has no lower jaw in every video. Break sticks are commonly used in dog fighting training. So let's recap here: Used as a bait dog with over 100 bites/puncture wounds, over bred at least 3-4 times, Heartworm positive, jaw/teeth wrecked with a break stick, and also new findings, her white blood cell count is very low due to having an infestation of whip-worms. HOW IS SHE STILL ALIVE? HOW DID SHE SURVIVE? It is hard to tell at this point what this effects this lifelong torture experience will have on sweet forgiving Colette both physically and mentally. The investigation is not over. She still needs your help! Her care is intensive but with your help she can make it.
