When Porkchop was brought into One Tail At A Time in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago, workers believed him to be approximately 6 years-old and fairly healthy. He seemed like a relatively normal case at first. It wasn’t until his foster mom took him to the vet for some urinary tract issues that she realized just what horrors Porkchop had lived through.
More than 50 BBs were found lodged inside Porkchop’s abdomen, from where he was shot repeatedly.
No one knew this dog had experience such abuse. He came to the shelter after wandering the streets since his owner died.
He was a loving, resilient dog. Luckily, the BBs didn’t do any fatal damage and didn’t need to be removed from his stomach.
The shelter thinks that Porkchop will find his forever home by the end of the week…
But they are hoping that his story of terrible abuse will encourage people to donate to shelters. There are so many mistreated dogs like Porkchop who just need love.
