It”s impossible to ever imagine why people would do some of the things they do to animals, yet animal rescuers come across the most grotesque treatment of pets on the daily. From malnutrition to conscious acts of violence, animals suffer at the hands of humans far, far, far too often. This pup”s story is one of those horrifying instances.
He was shot in the face with bird shot, also known as buck shot, which fires a spray of small bullets.
He has countless bullet wounds, even in his eyes.
He was then discarded in a garbage bag, left to die.
Luckily, a few Good Samaritans spotted the suspicious bag on the side of the road and immediately found the three-year-old pup medical attention.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of the bullets will remain in him forever…
And he”s been left blind due to the wounds in his eyes…
But his spirit never failed.
Now Buck is well enough to take a trip to the beach!
He can”t see, but he sure can feel the sand beneath his toes!
Not only is he a cheerful pup…
He”s become a spokesperson of sorts, spreading the word about cruelty to animals.
Watch the heartbreaking start to his story here:
