Pit bull puppy recovers after severe chemical burns


ROCKDALE COUNTY, GA (WFLA) – A pit bull puppy about 6 months old suffered chemical burns so severe it almost died.

WXIA reported that the female pit bull was tied to a tree in a wooded area. Its skin, especially across its face and head, was raw and bleeding. According to WXIA, the veterinarians first thought it was a severe case of mange, but the pup wasn’t responding to the treatment.

Veterinarians were considering euthanizing her but Merle Mohr of Paws and Stars Animal Rescue suggested that somebody might have poured some chemical on the dog and then tied her to a tree leaving her to die.

“She was cowering on the floor, shaking, just bleeding,” Mohr said.

Mohr took the dog in and named her Sophie. Sophie responded to the acid burn treatment and started eating. Her fever was broken too.
