A woman in Lehigh Acres was shocked to find a dog dragging himself in her backyard, begging for help. The dog’s mouth was taped shut with red electrical tape, and he was bleeding and hyperventilating from the trauma.



The woman immediately for animal services, and the dog was taken to Lee County Domestic Animal Services. The Florida Cur dog, now named Chance, was found to be dehydrated, malnourished and bleeding from wounds on his arm and chest.

The Sheriff’s Office shared that Chance has been adopted by them and thoroughly “deputized”, and he will be getting his own office. His first day on duty was action-packed, and the pooch is enjoying every second of his new job! We are so thrilled to see Chance grow & thrive so well!



Meanwhile, the police have been searching for the abuser, without any success. Many concerned citizens and organizations have contributed towards setting up a reward fund, to motivate people to come forward with information.



The initial reward was set at $8,000, but with more people coming forward and donating to the reward fund, the reward for information leading to the culprit’s arrest has now been raised to $14,500. We hope the culprit is caught soon and faces justice for their cruel actions.
