When Baron, the dog, was found wandering the streets in Detroit, a passerby coaxed him into his truck to help him. He immediately took Baron to the Michigan Humane Society and waited with him while staff from the shelter treated him.
The vet examined Baron and determined that someone had brutally cut off the dogs nose and ears. The 8-year-old Rottweiler mix also had injuries to his legs and tail.
His injuries were so severe that he would need surgery to live a normal life. Despite the horrific things he had been through, Baron was kind and gentle and loving.
“Baron is a sweet dog, particularly in light of everything he has been through. He greatly enjoys playing fetch with tennis balls and toys and enjoys being in the company of his human friends. He also enjoys being pet and scratched, and will sit quietly next to you when he is done playing,” said Anna Chrisman, public relations coordinator at the Michigan Humane Society.
Baron has now had two surgeries, one to fix his nose, and the second for his tail. They had to, unfortunately, amputate his tail due to the previous injuries he suffered.
Baron has a long way to go before he can be adopted, but he is doing remarkably well. He is so happy, and a lot healthier since he has been with them, and we are so thankful for that!
