Someone cut off this dog’s nose and ears but he just found his forever home.

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.

Michigan Humane Society Facebook

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 and making a donation to the Michigan Humane Society, who are offering a $40,000 reward for information that leads to their arrest.

  7. Bless the couple who adopted this beautiful dog! You made my day. I am in the process of fostering a pet that I know I will end of keeping. Animals are such precious creatures and it is a distinct privilege to even own a domestic pet (cat or dog). Bless you and bless this dog’s life with you. Much long life and happiness to you all! Cheers!

  21. Jacqueline says:

    I was shocked when I saw that story about Barron, anyone who would do something so horrific to a living creature would do that to a human being, but my heart is warmed by the love and selflessness of the doctors and Barron’s new owners. Thank you for your kindness. God bless you.

    It is so lovely to see Baron with his new family. Good luck to you for being so kind to Baron. He needs loving care now.


  24. Pat P. says:

    Where do all these twisted sadists come from? Are we breeding them in secret? Thankfully, there are some wonderful animal lovers and just compassionate empathetic souls. If only there were a lot more. The untold suffering is never-ending. Since changing minds takes time, and in the meantime, too much emotional and physical pain abounds, animal cruelty laws MUST be made stronger and forced much more often. Animals don’t experience less suffering than humans do–so the laws MUST reflect that fact!


  25. Amber Lynn says:

    There’s a special place in Hell for the people who did that to poor Baron and there’s a special place in heaven for those two new pet parents God Bless you this made me cry.


  26. Kim A Volkmar says:

    I cry when I think about the pain this poor fella endured. But then I look at that picture of Baron with his tennis ball and his HERO FOREVER PARENTS right there with him, my faith in people has been a bit restored. I hope they catch the abusive assholes that did this. Be happy with each other!


  27. cheryl says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE This happy ending!!!!!!!!!!! God Bless this dog and the trust he has for people and Bless this couple for giving him a loving home that he deserves! 🙂


  28. Lisa says:

    Thank you Lord for giving this guy a loving home and a chance to realize that not all people are cruel. Continued prayers to bring to justice those that harmed him as they probably will not hesitate to harm another animal or possibly a person.


  29. Michael says:

    To: Jack Cartwright. I guess that makes me a sicko too. I’m all for doing to them what they did to sweet Baron. I am so happy for him to have found his forever home and parents who will love him as unconditionally as he loves them. Thank you God for the wonderful outcome to a very sad story.


    1. Touché I agree with you they should do the same thing to the person that he did to that sweet little dog I am so happy he found a forever great home.


  41. Joleen Mandura says:

    Thank god this sweet fur babe is all better and has a loving family. I hope these lowlifes are caught and make them pay the vet bill and then have someone do the same thing to who ever did that or send them to my house I’ll get justice for this sweet fur babe!!!!!! I’m tired of the laws not being strict with animal cruelty. If it isn’t drugs they don’t give a shit.!!!!!!


    1. Cathie Dugan says:

      I totally agree with Joleen! Those mean, inhumane people need to pay for what they did to this beautiful animal!
      They do need more stricter laws for animal abusers. It’s not fair that they hurt and/or kill a poor defenseless animal and get away with just a slap on the wrist!
      “Kill an animal, Go to Jail!!


      1. Not go to jail but instead, “An eye for an eye!”
