RepostBy @vegan.femme.new: "DOG SHOT IN THE FACE, LOSING LOWER JAW, SITS AT A SHELTER,
Four-year-old dog, named Chopper, is at the Indiana’s Humane Society for Hamilton County. For awhile, Chopper was in a foster home, and he relished the time! Chopper lived the life of a dog, playing, snuggling, with humans and other dogs. Chopper is heartworm positive and requires treatment, and needs to eat pureed food because of his missing jaw – other than that, he is a loving dog, and a survivor.
The 4-year-old pup was found injured along a road in January and rushed to a veterinarian. Dr. Lisa Lembke, small animal vet for the Monrovia Equine and Small Animal Clinic, performed surgery on Chopper to amputate his jaw, which had been blown apart.
The dog is still playful and friendly. But, his life will forever be impacted by the violence someone inflicted upon him. For instance, he will never be able to chew food again. “We make him a blended mixture of dog food so he’s able to eat that successfully,” said Jacque Kaufman from the Morgan County Humane Society.
A $1,000 reward is also being offered for information about who shot the dog. Those who can help are asked to call the Martinsville Police Department at 765-342-4900.• • •
