Abused Dog Left For Dead In Trash Could Barely Lift His Head When Rescuers Find Him

If it hadn’t been for an honest Samaritan finding him, Charlie Hell Bull would have likely died during a garbage heap . Charlie was covered in flies, filth and head wounds and lying within the trash next to a dumpster when Nikki Rubino found him.

Nikki had been tagged during a Facebook post about the dog dumped within the garbage near a recreational center. A vet tech for several years, Nikki knew from watching him that he was on death’s door. Charlie wasn’t moving when she first approached him to unfasten the string that was attaching him to a pole. That he was even ready to lift his head was a miracle.



Nikki and a lover got him to the car and rushed him to Philadelphia Animal Hospital, where his condition has been “touch-and-go” ever since. But the 2-year-old Pit bull features a whole group of supporters rallying to assist him heal.


“The following photo is tough to seem at but is extremely important,” the Philadelphia Animal Hospital wrote on Facebook.

“It’s a terrible tragedy when innocent animals are treated in such how , and that we recognize that this is often not an isolated incident,” the hospital continued. “Charlie may be a very sweet dog and is in stable condition.” The vets are “taking every measure to make sure he gets well.”



An investigation into who is liable for harming Charlie is additionally now underway through the Pennsylvania Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ humane law-enforcement unit.

The PSPCA said that Charlie does have a microchip, which was implanted by them as port of their front clinic/vaccine clinic services. supported Charlie’s wounds it appears he was used as a bait dog for dog fighters.


There has been an outpouring of donations for Charlie, and therefore the Philadelphia Animal Hospital is asking future donations to be directed to the town of Elderly Love: Save a Senior Pet.

“While not our typical rescue, Charlie’s wonderful finders sure brought him to the proper place,” City of Elderly Love wrote on Facebook. “Philadelphia Animal Hospital are going to be caring for and treating him freed from cost and as their exclusive rescue partner, we’ll be handling his post-recovery care. we've high hopes that Philly’s amazing Humane enforcement team are going to be ready to bring Charlie’s abusers to justice.”




Although doctors are still very concerned about Charlie developing sepsis thanks to his wounds, it’s been a couple of days since his rescue on October 26, 2017 and there are some positive signs he's recovering. As of October 29 (three days after his rescue) he’s “happily trotting around” the hospital.


“There’s no set timeline on his recovery and we’ll need to take it day by day, but Charlie is robust and therefore the worst is over,” the rescue group said. “Tomorrow, he’ll have surgery to get rid of more of the dead tissue on his face. He’ll need a series of procedures to form a full recovery, but is easier than he has been during a while .”



His rescuers are ensuring he gets many rest and cuddles as he recovers.

The animal hospital added, “Tomorrow he will have surgery to get rid of much of the dead tissue around his face and muzzle. it'll be only one of a series of surgeries he will need, but it's a step within the right direction. he's eating well and is far easier than he has been!”




Thank goodness for kind people like Nikki and therefore the rescuers and doctors working to save lots of Charlie’s life and ensuring his future is bright.
