After we had Llyw's 2 ferret gills & my Wolf taken here, Tara returned very briefly before she & her favourite PiriPup vanished once again from my yard. I'd given up ever seeing my 2 dogs ever again, which is why yesterday Annon got yelled at:
She'd let the 2 boys (WhiteTip & Midnight RippleBack) out & called that she was letting them back in ~ I was in the sitting room knitting when a a small black dynamo landed on my lap & I screamed at Annon because WhiteTip's tail had gone & with it all my sense & logic. It was Annon who worked out that, as she still had 2 very tailed black dogs round her legs, then the tailless 1 had to be Chut'Chut' returned.
Whoever took my puppy (6 1/2 months old now) had prepped him for fighting. He's a rough coat terrier type & looks like a gone-wrong Bedlington Terrier. Beddy's were originally bred for fighting, poaching & ratting, so either they were hoping to turn him into a ring dog, or were just using him to train up their own fighters. You can see Chut'ty's spine poking out through the end of his stump & he obviously rolled over in submission as he has a hole in him from his scrotum across his body & down a back leg ~ it's just like looking at a 1/2 eaten cut of meat still attached to the animal. (Chut'Chut's dad was a BC X so you have the BC love in him)
When he was on my lap yester evening he growled with intent whenever the other dogs so much as looked at him & I spent my time calming him & loving all the dogs, helped by Annon who had Piri & WT on her. Middy sulked. I was worried about bedtime as all the dogs like sleeping with me, so I took Chut'ty up first & Annon let the others up when she finished watching a dvd (no school this day!), but there were no problems at all & everyone settled down. I'm hoping that we can love our poor baby back to himself as he is still a loving, gentle boy under his wariness.
I rang the vet, but as his hole wasn't new, they couldn't stitch him together (I don't think they could have done anyway as there is a lump of dog gone) & as there seems to be no sign of infection, she told me to keep an eye on it & bathe him in brine. I also rang the Gardai to inform them that this was going on & to cover my back if the neighbour decides that I've been abusing my dogs again (both times she's reported me, the ISPCA commented on how happy, healthy & shiny-coated my dogs were! The second time, I was told by them that the Wolf was too skinny, but they left as a Wolfie breeder arrived & told me that she was too fat!)
If I could, I'd post photos of the under side & stump end of my poor baby & really gross you out. Beware if you have dogs, they may come after yours.
