I recently was surfing around the web on Craigslist. Saw a blue and white year and a half old pitbull or mix. He belonged to a couple that was going through a divorce and they needed to find him a home. I talked to the lady and she said he was very gentle with her children and even liked their cat. So I decide to go meet the dog. They wanted a $75 rehoming fee. I get there and the dog is in horrible shape. He is skin and bones, filthy, and has scars all over his ears, one on the top of his head, and his back legs were also covered in scars. I asked her if he had been fought and she said no that he was a family pet. He seemed to have a good nature and temperment about him and inspite of being severely under weight he was very strong. I got him because i couldn't stand leaving knowing what kind of shape he was in. I brought him home bathed him, fed him and spent the evening playing with him. This was sunday. Yesterday when I get home from work I let him in the house. I got to noticing that he seemed to sit down very gingerly. I started feeling around on his legs trying to find out where he was hurting and didn't get any response from the dog. I rolled him over and still didn't see anything at first. Then I saw it. He has a hole in his scrotom sack that looked disgusting. It was bigger than a quarter. I immediately called my mother who is a nurse and she told me what to get for him so I went and got everything. Soaked him in an epsom salt bath, cleaned the wound with hydrogen peroxide to boil it out and then alcohol to sterilize it. then put tripl antibiotic ointment on it. I called the vet's office and their voice mail said he was out of town. He is the only vet that will take pitbullls for about 50 miles and we are currently in our buisiest part of the year at work and I can't get any time off to drive him out of town. What can I do for him? He is such a good boy and doesn't deserve the way he has been treated. First concern is getting him better. Second concern is turning the people that I got him from in for animal cruelty, but all I have is an email and a cell phone number. Does anyone have any advice at all for me. I know me and Brutus would both appreciate it greatly.
