The Michigan Humane Society just shared some wonderful news. Baron, a rottweiler mix that they rescued in Detroit has just been adopted.
But this isn’t a normal adoption story. When the Michigan Humane Society found Baron abandoned in Detroit he was severely injured. Someone had cut off his nose, both of his ears, and badly hurt his tail. He was “brutally disfigured” and malnourished. Despite all of this, Baron was still friendly to people — he just wanted to be loved!
In order to save him and help him breathe normally again, he had to undergo two surgeries.
They surgeries were a success and will help him live a more comfortable life.
“The Michigan Humane Society would like to share that Baron had his reconstructive surgery today and is doing great. The surgery lasted around 2 hours and 30 minutes. His nasal passage is now covered and protected and his tail was shortened and sutured. Our veterinary team reports that he came through with flying colors, and is resting quietly while he recovers.”
It took him some time to recover fully and he received lots of support from all around the world. Many people wanted to adopt him and he ended up adopted by a man and woman who wish to remain anonymous, but knew Baron was the dog for them after hearing his story.
It’s so wonderful to see that after all he’s been through, Baron has found a loving forever home! Look how happy he is:
Unfortunately, the person or people who did this to Baron still haven’t been caught. You can help raise awareness about Baron’s case by signing our petition on Change.org and making a donation to the Michigan Humane Society, who are offering a $40,000 reward for information that leads to their arrest.
