Tracy Lystra organizer of The Saving Huey Foundation, an animal rescue good cause and asylum in Southern California, got a call about a dog in urgent need of help. The poor pup (Brave Heart) had his jaw and nose brushed off after beasts lashed explosives in his mouth.
The 3-month-old dog’s jaw was blown to pieces and the rescue didn’t know the little guy would endure. Lystra said, “I was contacted by someone in Mexico about Brave Heart, they sent me a picture of him and my first instinct was to have the poor dog put down.”
“I had never done any rescue in that area so I was unsure of the vets out there but a friend told me about Dr.Briseno, who thought he could help.” Brave Heart was brought to the local vet by the Good Samaritan that found him and the rescue agreed to pay for the necessary surgeries.
“While one side of the bottom jaw is severely damaged, the vet feels there’s enough remaining jaw for ‘Brave Heart’ to be able to eat and drink. The damage to the nose and nasal cavity has been cleared of necrotic tissue as well as sewn back together,” posted the rescue
Brave Heart experienced four medical procedures to reconstruct his gag with a prosthetic jaw. The way to healing was long yet the upbeat and lovely puppy got through. After two months at the medical clinic healing, it was time for him to make the 11-hour excursion to the rescue.
“Shortly after coming to us, he had the tube removed from his nose. And this seemed to alleviate a lot of discomforts.”
Brave Heart spent another 2 months at the rescue healing time before moving into the haven with other rescue dogs.
Vets accept the harm to the sweet little guy was brought about by fireworks going off in his mouth. “Vets here had no idea what it was, and we nearly lost him but he has made a remarkable recovery. In Brave Heart’s case, his surgeon in Mexico, as well as the hospital staff here in the U.S., agree that it appears as if he had explosives put in his mouth. It is believed that the explosive was more than likely a firecracker,” said Lystra.
Bold Heart is a sweet and lovely kid who adores everybody he meets. Significantly, in the wake of enduring on account of people. “He is so full of energy and love. He’s happiest when he’s lathering us with kisses,” wrote the rescue.
Lystra said, “I would be lying if I said that late at night. I didn’t have awful thoughts as to what I would do to the people who commit such crimes. I am able to take a lot of what I see and hide it from my emotions. But, there are times it definitely catches up with me.”
However, Brave Heart adores playing with the other rescue dogs at Huey’s Second Chance Ranch. And will carry on with an amazing remainder encompassed by kind and cherishing individuals. Lystra said, “My only wish is that you could all experience a Brave Heart kiss”. Thank you to all associated with saving and the recovery of Brave Heart.
