Earlier this year, a two year old Pointer mix was located on the streets of Tijuana by a rescuer. The poor dog, that has since been called Dwayne, was desperately scrounging for food while local citizens threw scalding hot water and stones at him, disgusted by his deformities
The rescuer after that discovered the dog’s original guardian, that had bound his mouth with a c.r.u.e.l wire-muzzle and regularly kicked him with sticks.
The individual was offering prison time for unrelated crime. Dwayne was left to take care of himself on the streets. To make issues worse, he was further injured when he was attacked by 2 large canines, causing severe head injuries and nearly removed his ears.
Thanks to the rescuer, the pup fortunately made it to the Helen Woodward Animal Center, an animal sanctuary located in Rancho Santa Fe, California that holds a passionate belief that “animals aid people and people help animals with trust, unconditional love, and regard creates a legacy of caring.”
From Horrific Abuse to Caring Hands
In spite of all of the horrific treatment the canine had withstood, he had nothing but love to offer each person he met. He would certainly lower his head, offering a lick and would gently push his body versus anybody that came close.
The Helen Woodward center was identified to give Dwayne the life he deserved. Throughout months, specialists fixed his severely malformed front leg and elbow, as well as performed a facial repair surgery to repair the extreme mutilation of his nose and mouth.
A renowned stem cell treatment institute, Vet-Stem Biopharma, also stepped up to offer cutting-edge treatment to help Dwayne’s healing process.
The technology collects cells from an injured animal and delivers the animal’s own recovery stems back to the site of the injury and throughout the body by IV. The treatment usually costs around $2,500 however Dr. Schaffer of Vet-Stem Biopharma was so touched by Dwayne’s story, he offered the procedure for free.
Determined to use every suitable modern medication available to help recover his injuries, the Helen Woodward Facility also provided laser therapy for the areas affected by his facial reconstruction surgeries.
Laser treatments have been revealed to speed the healing process, decrease inflammation, as well as help with pain. The sweet puppy as a trooper via it all.
Dwayne’s story touched the hearts of thousands of animal fans that helped to raise over $40,000 for his healing. By August of 2017, the formerly abused and orphaned sweetheart of a canine was ready to locate his permanently home.
Generously, the center offered half off every one of Dwayne’s clinical costs for life, equally as long as his brand-new family brings him into the facility for his ongoing treatment.
After lots of applications to locate Dwayne his permanently home, the center finally located the best match with Kelly Nelle. Now, Dwayne is forgetting his terrible past and learning to be a canine again.
Dwayne has couch access, lots of toys to have fun with and of course, the adoration of his human mom. We are ecstatic to see Dwayne beat the odds with his motivating change.
Once starved and not able to stand, he declined to give up. Now he has his gladly ever after. Pleased tears!
