Oreo - Suffered Horrific Wounds to Head



This lost soul came to us as a battle scarred, wounded, emaciated in pain and mistrustful of those who would do him harm.

The pictures of the large gaping wounds baring a portion of his skull and an ear that had been hacked off were much too graphic to display here. The stray pit bull was brought to the Animal Emergency & Referral Associate (AERA) in Fairfield where veterinarians rolled up their sleeves and put the pieces together for this pathetic dog.

There were no bite wounds on the rest of his body -- only the head. The staff said the side of his face had been ripped off. The vet tech staff kept us updated on their miraculous care. They discovered that his stomach was filled mostly with rocks and garbage.

One of the staff advised that he underwent multiple procedures to stop infection and close the large wound. There were daily bandage changes and cleaning the ear canal which eventually had to be removed because it was causing pain and infection.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, your donations to the Res-Q Fund are used for these types of situations.

The pictures on his arrival and during much of his time at AERA are much too graphic to include on our website.

At the present time, he is still with the vet staff so that his issues with men and with dogs will be minimized.

They are working to lessen his fear of humans. We are accepting adoption applications which you can e-mail to us here.

Oreo was abandoned and would have surely died if AHS had not intervened. Special thanks goes to the veterinary staff at AERA for their painstaking efforts to help Oreo.
