Broward Sheriff officers almost broke down in tears as they tenderly wrapped a towel around an abandoned dog found on Sunday evening in a field close to Highway 27 and Alligator Alley in South Florida’s Broward County. Found in an area noted for the fishing, the weak American bulldog’s eyes were so ulcerated, no one is sure how much he can see. And to add to his neglected situation, the mange on his body is so advanced, his skin bleeds at the slightest touch.
The dog has been taken in by Dezzy’s Second Chance Rescue. Click here to see the video of the dog’s rescue. Watch how caring and compassionate the deputies of Broward County Sheriff’s Office were as the dog was gently fed, led away from the swampy area and into the rescuer’s vehicle. On Monday morning, Sandra Dezelan, founder of the rescue organization stated the dog is on his way to two veterinarians; one for a regular physical exam and then onto an eye surgeon.
