Right before Christmas, the Trio Animal Foundation, TAF, was called into an emergency rescue vet after hearing about a stray dog in a terrible situation. The dog had a choke collar deeply embedded under his arm, neck and shoulder. It was so far embedded that you could no longer see it around his neck. The vets had to cut the chain off in pieces to pull it out from under the skin that had grown over it.
If it weren’t for TAF and the amazing veterinarians, this poor boy would not have survived. The infected sections on the rescued dog were so terrible they had to be debrided to remove as much of the dead tissue and infection as possible. We simply cannot understand how a human could have subjected a dog to so much pain and suffering, but he was certainly in good hands with TAF and the rescue vet team. The group of rescuers named the dog Kringle and this abused pup was set on the long road to recovery.
Kringle had to have a drain placed in his chest to help get rid of excess fluid and was given stitches that ran all the way from his armpit up to his side. His recovery would be painful, but it was clear to volunteers and staff that this was an affectionate, happy and loving dog. After a week at the vet recovering, Kringle was brought back to TAR to recuperate. It was not long before everyone fell in love with his adorable demeanor.
It is exactly this personality that helped Kringle find his forever home! TAR announced on their Facebook page that Kringle not only made a full recovery, but he found a loving family to spend his life with. His new mom and dad love everything about this brave boy, and Kringle is going to have the life he definitely deserves!
When TAR was called in to meet Kringle, his injuries were extensive.
The brave dog had to undergo several painful and extensive surgeries to remove the embedded collar and dead tissue.
Through it all, though, Kringle’s amazing personality stood out to vets and volunteers.
Within a week of his surgeries, Kringle was happy, affectionate and everyone’s favorite dog.
You can see on his face just how excited Kringle is for a life with his new family!
