Meet my new Facebook friend Champ Waring. He’s an eight-year-old bulldoggeh.
Champ and his sister Girl are super funny.
But Champ has had a pretty bad life.
“In Aug. 2009, I was found wandering the streets of Miami and was taken to a local high-kill shelter. I had severe puncture wounds through my neck, lacerations covering my body, and all four of my canine teeth had been filed down. Everyone thought I had been used as a bait for dog fighting. I waited in the shelter until my 5 day hold was up and a rescue came to save me. My puncture wounds had to be flushed out twice daily with a special solution and my badly infected ears needed to be cleaned daily with specially medicated cleaner.
Over time, my wounds healed and my external appearance looked much better…. but I was still battling the unseen. My temperature began to fluctuate drastically and I was very lethargic. No one knew what was wrong, but I started feeling better. So I started attending rescue events and began obedience training. I was still possessive of my food and toys and terrified of loud noises. Finally I was physically ready for adoption; mommie Neely asked me if I wanted to stay with her forever. I said sure!”
(You can read more here but there are some pretty terrifying photos – you have been warned.)
Because of all this super bad stuffs, Champ established Bullies Against Bullying – an anti-bulling campaign.
This all made me very sads so I thought it was important that I tell you about the bad stuffs that persons do to animals. I hope that by showing people doggehs can change, it will help others like Champ find a safe, forever home.
Big kisses to you Champ. I’m so very happy that you mended your sore bits and found a nice person to love you.
