American Bulldog left dying in the street after horrific machete attack in Anfield, Liverpool.
THE collapsed dog was found with a horrendous head injury by a motorist on his way to make arrangements for his father’s funeral.
Assuming the dog had been hit by a car, he pulled over, put the dog in his car and took her to the PDSA in Kirkdale where emergency treatment was carried out to stitch up the machete wound, reports the Liverpool Echo.
The nine-year-old dog is now receiving more medication and is recuperating in the care of the RSPCA.
RSPCA inspector, Rachel Henderson managed to trace the owner of the ‘beloved pet’ Ruby, and is now keen to find whoever brutally attacked her before 9am on Thursday, October 15.
She told the Liverpool Echo that she believes “Ruby was attacked with a machete which is what caused this horrific wound and I am keen to find the person responsible for this vile incident”.
“We have no idea why she was subjected to this horror – but we have traced her owner who said she ran off from her nearby home at about 12.30am on the Thursday when she was found,” she added, thanking the “grieving man” who stopped to help saver Ruby’s life.
