An advocate reached out to me, asking for some help with this precious boy. Braveheart, an approximately one-year-old Pit Bull mix, had been at the Murray County Animal Shelter in Chatsworth, Ga., with a horrific wound in his neck. One look into his pleading eyes and it is very clear this precious boy deserves whatever help that can come his way. He has suffered immensely.
The belief is that someone slit Braveheart’s throat in order to stop him from barking. That kind of callous cruelty is simply beyond comprehension. How does anyone look into the eyes of another helpless living being, and then intentionally slice their throat? He was turned into the Murray County Animal Shelter, but they did not have the resources to be able to care for him. Sweet Braveheart was doomed unless someone came forward to help him.
His salvation came yesterday, when he was pulled from the shelter by the compassionate advocates from the Animal Rescue League of Northeast Georgia. Braveheart was immediately taken to the Whatley-Kinney Veterinary Clinic. There, he was placed on strong antibiotics for his infection as well as pain medications. Braveheart underwent surgery today to repair the horrible wound to his neck, and he is doing well after the procedure. The cut actually exposed his trachea (voice box), but thankfully did not damage it. The prognosis for him looks good so far.
Needless to say, this sweet boy faces some very large medical expenses to help him get through this terrible ordeal from a heartless act of cruelty.

A reward of $1,500 is being offered for information that leads to the arrest of the heartless person who hurt Braveheart. Surely someone will recognize the face of this precious dog, and will know where he lived, and possibly even know who committed this heartless act of cruelty. The initial $500 of the reward was donated by Judy Lawson, the President and founder of the Animal Rescue League of Northeast Georgia.
Please network this story to all of your contacts on social media, and do what you always do so well; help an animal who is in desperate need, and find the monsters who harmed him. Braveheart deserves only the best from now on, and the monsters who hurt him need to be brought to justice. If you have any information at all that could help, please contact:
Animal Rescue League of Northeast Georgia
Clearly, Braveheart has touched the hearts of everyone who has seen him. He needs to now know that not all humans are monsters, and not everyone wants to cause him pain. Once he has recovered, he will be ready for adoption into a new loving forever home, where he will be free from harm for the rest of his life.
Keep getting better and stronger sweet Braveheart. Advocates are pulling for you, and will do all they can to help you heal, and help find the humans who hurt you so badly.
