The picture above is the face of a survivor.
At only 6 months old and a whopping 25lbs "Joe" the beagle mix, is fighting for his life.
This beautiful little dog is the after math of a "Bait Animal."
For those of you unaware of what a "Bait Animal" is, let me explain it...
"Bait" animals are animals used to test a dog's fighting instinct; they are often mauled or killed in the process. Trainers obtain bait animals from several sources: wild or feral animals, animals obtained from a shelter, or in some cases, stolen pets. Sometimes the animals are also obtained through "free to a good home" ads.
"Joe" was brought to Aloma Jancy Animal Hospital by a good Samaritan just in time.
Save A Life Pet Rescue was contacted immediately and we jumped right into action.
Regardless of cost, we quickly approved all charges to help "Joe". We hadn't even seen how bad "Joe" actually was until we arrived...

Aloma Jancy Animal Hospital was able to stabilize "Joe" and give him the medical attention he so desperately needed. "Joe" was placed on IV Fluids with heavy CRI pain medications and antibiotics to help get the infections under control. His wounds were clipped, cleaned and bandaged. "Joe" spent 2 weeks at Aloma Jancy before he was stable enough to transfer for his first surgery.
Once "Joe" was stable, he was then transferred to Altamonte Pet Hospital where he spent a week undergoing the cleaning of his wounds to help minimize infection. Dr. Larkin and his staff then preformed his first surgery to close "Joe's" wounds and fix a lot of damage done to muscles and tissue.
Joe was then finally transferred to the Banfield of Oviedo where Dr. Clifton and his staff have preformed "Joe's" last 2 surgeries. "Joe" has been in the care of Banfield for the past month and is doing well during his recovery.
"Joe" sadly developed Demodex Mange during his recovery. Demodex Mange is not something that can be prevented as it is hereditary. "Joe" has done great with his recovery and is fighting off the demodex mange with proper medication.

Greatful Paws Cat and Dog Rescue
Thank you for opening your hearts to such a wonderful pet in need and spreading the word to help "Joe."
Does this look like a spoiled little guy to you?
"Joe" has now found his forever loving home! He is doing wonderfully and couldn't be happier!
Finally, we have spectacular news that "Joe" is enjoying life as he should of from the beginning.
"Joe's" new family is nothing short of AMAZING!
It takes truly special people to adopt a dog that has been through as much as "Joe" has.
Medically, we do not know what the future holds for "Joe," but family wise, we know we've made the right choice for "Joe."
He will never be in danger of ending up in a shelter or another "Bait Dog" EVER again!
Below are a few pictures of "Joe" with his new family!
