Cops Save Great Dane Wandering With Duct Tape Around Her Head And Mouth

Aurora is now in foster care and is doing AWESOME!

 After receiving an anonymous report about a dog walking the streets, the Darlington County Sheriff's Department went to retrieve her and discovered the huge dog with her head and mouth duct taped shut! 

Deputies were able to apprehend the dog and carefully remove the tape before transporting her to the Darlington County Animal Shelter for care and treatment.



“Aurora is an extremely fortunate lady. Darlington County Humane Society Rescue reports, "She was discovered in time to be saved!" “A very poised, courteous lady, she is still in a bit in [a] trance after being hauled up by the Sheriff's Department yesterday morning, with duct tape wrapped around her head and mouth.”

Fortunately for Aurora, the duct tape did not cause any long-term damage. The veterinarians believe she had been wrapped for up to a day and a half, but thankfully the tape had not cut off any circulation!


 

“Look at Aurora's BEAUTIFUL face! The veterinarian believes she is a purebred Great Dane. She is a tall, proud lady! She is estimated to be 3-4 years old, has a sweet, kind personality, and the patience of a saint,” says her rescuers.

The Great Dane, on the other hand, isn't out of the woods yet. The attractive lady is significantly underweight. The Body Condition Index gave her a score of 4 out of 9. (with 9 being optimal health). She's also infested with whip worms, hook worms, and, sadly, life-threatening heart worms. Her care will be costly, but her rescuers are sure that she will recover.




Aurora is not currently available for adoption because the Sheriff's Department is still actively investigating her abandonment and abuse, but people are invited to make an adoption application.



The civilized society expressed great optimism that the police will discover who committed this horror towards Aurora. “As a county, we don't have a large population of Great Danes, so someone must know something about her. Keeping my fingers crossed!! Darlington County loves its animals, and it hurts our hearts to see any of them abused.
