Miracle has been used by dog fighters then dumped to die in a bed and ants and flies.

 

Miracle’s body has been destroyed as a bait dog. Dog fighters dumped her to die after they were done using her. A concerned citizen posted that there was a stray dog badly injured in the Apopka area. Volunteers at Pitbull Tailz Rescue set out to find her. After almost looking right past her several times, she was found lying in a bed of ants, flies swarming all around her. Had she not been found she would have died that day.

Her muzzle is extremely swollen with many bite wounds, including one very deep filled with infection. Both front lets also torn up with open ripped wounds, covered in dirt and debris. The smell of infection was intense. Too weak to even wag her tail, she let rescuers pick her right up. Our partners at Pitbull Tailz Rescue rushed her to their vet who is taking wonderful care of her during the day and then to VEC during the night for continued monitoring.

Miracle is hanging on, but far from out of the woods yet. She needs constant monitoring and headed back to the VEC overnight tonight. Tomorrow she will need to be transferred to UF for more specialized care. She has a lot going on - constant IV fluids, IV antibiotics, feeding tube for nutrition, wound dressing changes, continued lab value monitoring. Her temperature was low, so doctors are keeping her in a warmer currently. Her wounds need a lot of attention, but she needs to be more stable for any procedures that would require anesthesia.

The area where she was found is known to be a dumping ground for suspected bait dogs. Her wounds are consistent with this as well. There is also a near by landfill in which it is possible she could have been originally dumped at. Rescuers have filed a report with local animal control about this case.

We have made a promise to this sweet baby that will will not stop until she is healthy but we need your help! We have partnered with Pitbull Tailz Rescue to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed to give Miracle a second chance. Purchase a shirt today and save this innocent victim od dog fighting! With your help they can give her a new life full of love and pain free!


UPDATE 8-8-17: I have a devastating message from Miracle's nonprofit Pitbull Tailz Rescue. They write, "We have an extremely somber update on Miracle. After consulting with numerous vets around the state of Florida regarding Miracle's prognosis, we have decided continuing to let her suffer in this condition was inhumane. She was suffering with physical and mental anguish, and the kindest thing we could do for her was to let her go to the angels. We are so incredibly saddened that this was her fate. Her unimaginable pain was just too much to bear and her body was overcome with infection that she just couldn't defeat. We made sure that she knew she was loved and was comforted in her last moments."

"The professional opinions of the many vets that have assessed Miracle, and reviewed her records, agree that this was the direct result of dog fighting. This absolutely barbaric practice continues to run rampant in our community. If you see something, say something! If you don't, you are part of the problem. We will continue to fight for abused, neglected and abandoned dogs in our community. Miracle will never be forgotten and we will work in her name.

"Thank you to everyone that donated, shared, prayed and reached out for support. We could not get through this heart-wrenching time without you all and we are so grateful for the love shown for Miracle and the rescue!"
