Tip of the Week: One of the most common form of animal cruelty is the abandonment of dogs. As pet owners fail to understand and control the behavior of their dogs when they go around chewing shoes and furniture, barking, urinating in the wrong places, etc, they 'give up hope' and abandon them.

Well, it is our responsibility to spend some quality time daily to train your dog! It will take some patience, and a lot of love. But remember, just like us human, learning as we get older, animals learn as they grow too! And what is better than to spend some quality time to bond with man's best friend?

GYPSY

(Below: Gypsy had to have her leg removed as it was so injured in dog fighting)


God bless the veterinary surgeons Dr. McLean and Dr. Lowery and all those who have cared for Gypsy. McLean and Lowery had to call in veterinary surgeons who specialize in reconstruction. Gypsy was found a few years ago so this story isn't recent per se, but read this which came out when Gypsy was found:

A horribly mutilated pit-bull, named Gypsy, was found on Monday morning, April 11, 2005 in Gaston County, North Carolina. She had been dumped on a main highway (Wilkinson Blvd) that connects Gaston County with Charlotte/Mecklenburg County. Her wounds appear to be the result of dogfighting.

Her injuries were so severe, her right-front leg had to be amputated due to the extent of mutilation and infection. According to reports, the flesh on her face was literally rotting off, and when she first arrived at Tri-County Animal Rescue, her mouth was "nothing but pus". Tri-County Animal Rescue stated that the dog was "a bloody mess" when she was found on the roadside.

From the Tri-County website: "Gypsy had her leg amputated Monday the 18th 2005 and she is fighting for her life. Thanks to the skilled surgeons, Dr. McLean and Dr. Lowery at Eastridge Animal Hospital in Gastonia, and all the wonderful and loving vet techs at Eastridge who just go in and hold her paw or pat her or speak sweet kind words. It's amazing, but Cindy said she wagged her tail after surgery. Cindy and Dr. McLean say she hasn't given up and is fighting to stay with us.

"Her face is literally falling off, rotten skin, she has lost her lips and may lose her nose. Dr. McLean (if we have enough money and she makes it) will be able to do some cosmetic surgery. Her teeth showing is that her lips are rotten and gone. Imagine cutting off an ice pick to about two inches long and stabbing a dog in the head over and over and over. The skin is rotting beneath the wounds and it looks horrible."

Gypsy was a "bait dog"~



"Bait" animals are used to test a dog's fighting instinct, and these animals are often mauled or killed in the process. Trainers obtain bait animals from several sources: wild or feral animals, animals obtained from a shelter, or in some cases, stolen pets.[7] Sometimes the animals are also obtained through "free to a good home" ads.[8] According to news reports compiled by the National Humane Society, the snouts of bait dogs are wrapped with duct tape to prevent them from injuring dogs being trained for fighting. Other animals, such as cats and rabbits are also reported to be used as bait animals. Experts have said small dogs, kittens, and rabbits are more at risk of being stolen for bait than larger animals.

Gypsy now, after surgery and recovery!




ANY DOG THAT COULD LIVE THE LIFE THAT GYPSY LIVED AND STILL SMILE IS TO ME THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DOG IN THE WORLD.

Please remember...

*The "fighting dog" has few friends.
*They live lives of brutality and unspeakable cruelty at the hands of those who gamble on their deaths, while betrayal and death await them at "humane" societies if they are "rescued".
*Don't support "humane" groups that don't include these dogs in their circle of compassion.

HELP WANTED: GET UP TO $5000 (FIVE THOUSAND) DOLLARS STOPPING AN ABUSIVE ANIMAL SITUATION

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) offers a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in dogfighting or cockfighting. There are rewards for general animal cruelty as well and for cruelty involving animals other than dogs.

If you have information about illegal animal fighting or animal cruelty, you are eligible for this reward. Here are the steps to take.

1.)Call your local police department or animal control agency. Give them as many details as you can about the suspected animal fighting and or abuse situation.

2.)You do not need to give your name to law enforcement to report illegal animal fighting or animal abuse unless you want to. Tell the law enforcement agency about The HSUS's reward program. Let them know that if there is an arrest you will be back in touch and to remember you. If you want you can give them your name, a nickname or pseudonym to begin with if you are interested in going back to have them help you get the reward at a later date. If you are afraid to give your name, you can tell them you fear for your safety and that it is a nickname or pseudonym. Remember, you don't have to use your real name to report a crime. You don't have to use any name.

3.)Get some information on who you spoke to. If the suspected animal fighter/abuser is convicted, ask the law enforcement agency involved in the case to write a letter to The HSUS. The letter should state that your tip helped lead to the arrest and prosecution of the convicted animal fighter. The letter should be mailed or faxed to:

Animal Fighting Reward Program

Washington, DC 20037
