Phoenix is a male terrier mix puppy approximately
9 months old. This poor little guy was found in a small
town in Eastern Arkansas. He was chained outside in 95+
degree temperature without food, water or shelter. He was
severely burned and dehydrated which undoubtably would have
led to his death. An anonymous phone call resulted in his
chance for survival. The cause of his horiffic burns are
unknown. His survival instinct is incredible. Having had
no access to water for days, after drinking, he would dig
a hole, regurgitate some of the water and cover it with
leaves as if he were hiding it for later.
Although the photos are graphic, we feel as if people need
to see them in order to grasp the reality of what individuals
are capable of doing in the mistreatment of animals.
After everything Phoenix has been through in his short time
on this earth, he still loves humans and still wags his
tail. He is improving daily and we pray that this will be
a wake-up call for our community.
