- Florida, Miami-Dade County, USA -
On Sunday, February 16, a tiny Doberman was found with an injured jaw running the streets in the area of Southwest 216th Street and 209th Avenue.
The female pup, now named Clover, is believed to be less than 1 year old.
Rescuers took her to the Hollywood Animal Hospital.
Given the extent of her injuries and metal pieces in her mouth, doctors believed that she was shot, and she had been injured for at least a week before being found.
An update shared by all the rescuers involved in this case, says that Clover has a fracture on both sides of her mandible.
Dr. Danielson examined Clover and deemed she was good for surgery.
The good news is that Clover underwent surgery a few hours ago and it was successful (last picture).
The sweet furbaby now needs to learn to eat and drink and she will be able to do that in her foster home.
She will get plenty of love and care during the rehabilitation period before being ready to be adopted.
The police were informed and are investigating the shooting.
Hopefully that they will find the person(s) responsible for inflicting this senseless torture on a defenseless being.
If you recognize the dog or have information related to this case, please contact the Miami-Dade Police Department. Thank you!
