It seems no end to the cruelty we are uncovering here in Red Lake.
Meet Justin, as Polly did last night while driving by the Battle River dump on the road to Ponemah. She was horrified to find the shep mix with no ears- evident that someone had cut off his ears. Very fearful he holds his head and looks down most of the time. His little short life has been nothing but suffering as you can see it in his eyes.
They were obviously done torturing Justin, so they threw him in the dump.
He has just been taken in here at the RLRR shelter. I will take him to the vet to get verification as to what caused the ears to be severed. One ear may accidently be severed....but not two.
We have a number of abuse cases we could bring forward to HSUS, but are still waiting to have the one with the 2 dogs beaten and hung resolved.
I am hoping a rescue or kindhearted foster home will open up to give Justin some decent contacts with the human race- Obviously- he has not encountered any decency yet.
Justin is a juvenile, about 4 months old, intact, and minus 2 ears.
Can anyone help?
Sincerely, Jo Tallchief, Chairperson
MARS has stepped forward to take in Justin. Thanks so much!!
Nancy and Tom visited today and Nancy sat in his kennel and held him and he just LOVED it.
THOUGHTS FROM NANCY O'SULLIVAN:
I am so honored, really, to have held Justin today when we visited Karen's. What a gentle, fragile little soul this guy is. I would have loved to have sat with him in his kennel with a big ol' soft quilt and held him all day long.
He responds to sweet whispers in his ears and soft pets. What an absolute beauty. Thank you for this incredible rescue. Had you not been there for him, surely he would have perished. Thanks...
