Humphrey: They were going to shoot him!
[UPDATE] We have learned Humphrey was dumped on a person's property two days ago barely able to walk. Although he was not a threat to anyone, they threatened to shoot him if no one came for him. The shelter rushed to save him but due to low staff availability they were unable to make it until the next day.
Humphrey had successful leg amputation surgery yesterday and is recovering. But, we have learned some very disturbing information on the abuse Humphrey has endured during his 4 years of life.
Unfortunately the tumor on Humphreys leg was growing for a very long time and never treated causing it to burst and open to the point that his leg was not usable . The limp he had because of this condition was very painful and we cannot imagine how he mentally and physically survived day after day..
But his abuse did not stop here....
We have learned that Humphreys tongue hangs out of his mouth because of the build up of scar tissue caused by being systematically slashed and jabbed on the tongue with a sharp object over a long period of time. His tongue is now swollen permanently... Additionally, his ears are split into 2 which was definitely intentional infliction of harm upon Humphrey.
