The sweet dog was found with a carabiner hook and chain stuck right through his neck, causing immense pain. The hook was dragging a 15-pound tow chain – the kind that is used to tow cars and trucks! Thankfully, he is now in good hands but his journey to a forever home may be a long one.
“The worst pain imaginable has been done to the sweetest dog,” the rescuers wrote. Apart from the injury, he is also suffering from heartworm.
Courage’s recovery is bound to be long and tasking, but the rescue team is completely dedicated to saving him. The dog’s medical care and treatment are estimated to reach over $6,000.
It is difficult to think about the pain that Courage must have endured. As his rescuers say, his injury looks like something you would only see in horror films.
“Courage deserves us,” his rescuers shared. “He deserves to wake up from a life that has been such a nightmare.”
