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.

    I am so very happy that his surgery went so well. My hat is off to all that played a part in his recovery. To find him a forever loving and caring family was a daunting task and now Baron has his forever home to be never abused or tortured again. This has really made my day, and maybe all those prayers have helped as well.

    Fantastic, the evil people that did this, are outweighed by the caring people who helped him, and those who adopted him.

    It is wonderful to see that Baron was able to be saved and adopted by a great couple who can love him. As a lifetime dog owner myself and having a beautiful loving Rottweiler in our home I hope the heartless pieces of shit cowards that did this get what’s coming to them. There is a special place in Hell for animal abusers and I hope they see it sooner than later.


  34. Mike Petschelt says:

    Kudos for that couple that opened their hearts and their home to Baron. I am thankful to learn he is now in a loving environment where he will not be treated like he was before, and I am hopeful he lives a long and happy life with people that will show him that not all people are evil like the ones that butchered him. Hopefully those responsible for his abuse shall be caught and punished accordingly, giving justice for Baron.

    Many thanks to the couple with such loving hearts who adopted Baron after he suffered so much. You can tell by Baron’s happy, upbeat expression that he has forgiven the people who tortured him and is ready to move on to a warm, loving relationship with his new human family! Many thanks also to the Michigan Human Society and their surgeons who did such a great job with the nose reconstruction. Love to you all!
