entrance and exit wound, but overall what we had was a young, friendly and very lucky mixed-breed boy with a grazing wound to the left side of his face, thusly earning him the moniker “Graze”.
I gave Graze antibiotics and pain meds so he could begin his healing process. He was held for 3 days as a stray in case he had an owner that would come looking for him. When he was off his stray hold and we could see that he was healing appropriately, we scheduled Graze for his neuter so he could go up for adoption.
After caring for Graze for those several days, we saw just how sweet, gentle and wonderful this presumed pit bull/shepherd/Labrador mix really was. We wondered just how in the world did this guy get separated from his owners? And WHY on earth would someone shoot him???
While we may never know exactly what happened to this guy, Graze was ready to move on from his past misfortunes and start his new future! Once he was listed as available for adoption, it only took him 2 days to find a great new home with another dog to play with and lots of safe space to run! This turned out to be yet another successful save and adoption for OPHS and a very happy ending for Graze.
