After seeing an injured dog tied up with a short rope and suffering from a terrible neck wound, a concerned animal lover in Argentina decided to act and turned to social media for help.
The Good Samaritan’s efforts immediately paid off as their plea reached APAN (Argentina’s equivalent to the Humane Society) and they came out to look at the dog living at Barrio Constitución.
They found the dog tied up with a rope so short that the dog could not properly lie down. APAN wrote on Facebook, “We found him tied with a little rope, and with obvious signs of abuse.”
The wounds around the the dog’s neck were beginning to become infected and he was thirsty and hungry.
They right away initiated legal proceedings, getting the necessary court order to be able to seize the dog legally from his owner.
Once freed from his chain, Bobby immediately climbed into his rescuer’s truck, and APAN remarked that it was as if he understood what was going on and that he was getting help.
The dog (since named Bobby) went to the vet and had to have his neck wound treated right away. Fifteen maggots were removed from his wound and he was given medication and treatments.
He was exhausted after his ordeal. His rescuers noted that Bobby is a well-behaved, good dog (buenito cachorrón) and very calm.
After seeing the vet, he went into a foster home and will be made available for adoption once he is healthy.
APAN was thankful for the individuals who helped bring Bobby’s situation to light and thereby giving him a chance for a happy life.
