Two pit bulls were found two weeks ago now. They were suffering from life threatening injuries including burns and bite wounds. One puppy is now being cared for at Texas A&M veterinarian school. The doctors passed on some good news today, they expect the dog that is in their care to live.
Texas A&M vet school has named the pit bull under their care ‘Vonn.’
“Vonn continues to amaze us with his positive outlook and fantastic personality,” wrote Dr. Brooke Smith, a veterinary resident instructor at the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. She posted this via a web page that has been set up to notify people that are concerned about Vonn’s well being.
“While still a little groggy from his morning anesthesia, he decided to ‘leash walk me’ around the hallways of the small animal clinic,” she wrote at noon Thursday. “He made sure to stop and greet every person that walked by.”
The Brazos county community still trying to find the perpetrators that caused injuries to both Vonn and Esperanza. Esperanza was another pit bull found with Vonn, although her injures were not as extensive as Vonn’s.
Three animal rights advocacy groups have each offered a $1,000 dollar reward for information that would lead to the arrest of the people who committed this crime.
Vonn’s ears were sliced off and half his body was burned before he was found in rural Brazos County.
Vonn is expected to be released from the A&M vet center next week, although officials are not sure where he will go live. Many people have offered to adopt Vonn, but the veterinarians at A&M are unsure if he is adoptable. This is because of the way his former owners treated him.
