Kyle Schwab of Smashface Rescue rescues and trains abused and neglected Mastiffs, Bulldogs, and Pit Bulls. He just took in three dogs who have suffered severe cases of abuse and neglect.
Sage: Neapolitan Mastiff, 6-8 years old
Sage is emaciated, has the onset of cataracts, and is hard of hearing. She is one of the sweetest dogs to enter the program in 17 years! Sage was shot four times, once in each leg. One bullet struck her forearm, one ripped off her pad on the opposite front leg, one shot to the rear thigh, and the last shot blew off one of her rear toes. She is making a slow and steady recovery at my facility. Sage was shot when an LAPD officer was too lazy to wait for Animal Control to corral her. The other dog with her was shot and killed. When I tried to obtain the police report, I was threatened with being arrested if I did not leave the station.
Rose: Dogue De Bordeaux 12-14 months old.
This girl has one of the most severe cases of Demodectic Mange I have ever seen. The fact that her owners neglected her for such a long period of time, and for it to get to this point, she must have sat in this condition for the last eight to ten months with no treatment; because of this she has a secondary bacterial infection in her lympathic system, in two of her mammary glands, and a goiter growing in her neck. These are all symptoms of a compromised immune system. Since these pictures she's had her tear duct gland rupture and is unable to see out of her left eye. As if all this wasn't bad enough, she is fighting off a nasty case of pneumonia. Rose will also need upper and lower eyelid surgery. In addition she has a severe yeast infection in her ears and on her paws. All this can be attributed to her previous owners lack of care.
Pinky: Red Nose Pitbull.
Pinky is also suffering from a severe case of demodetic mange and sunburn. She is at my facility undergoing treatment and recovering nicely, but being a red nose Pit, may linger in the program for an indefinite period of time.
I've exhausted all my financial resources, including my savings, so I'm asking the public for help. These girls are just midway through their rehabilitation and healing process.
