Marshmallow: This is the life of a bait dog. END DOG FIGHTING!
This is the life of a bait dog. Meet our newest abuse case, Marshmallow. Rescuers wanted to name her something to reflect her purity, her sweetness and her innocence.
Marshmallow was used as a bait dog in Columbia, SC. When the shelter reached out, they said they had a badly injured bait dog come into the shelter, covered in open wounds and abscesses. They said she needed immediate medical care and they were working to get her released as soon as possible. What rescuers found next shocked us all.
Parts of her flesh on her face and neck had been ripped apart. Cases like this are the worst of the worst because sweet docile dogs are used to help train the more aggressive dogs to fight. This is the life of a bait dog. Our hearts break for all of them! They are ALL innocent victims of vile, greedy humans who get some sick pleasure in watching dogs rip each other apart. Sadly dogfighting is a problem everywhere, not only the south or any one area and we must come together to help stop it!!!!
UPDATE: Ok friends, after speaking with RDR we have an update. Sweet Marshmallow is recovering from surgery to close her horrific wounds on her throat, neck and face after being used as a bait dog. Physically she is healing… emotionally we can only hope and pray she is healing too. We still need your help!
