Dog Found In Street With “Horrific” Machete Wound Is Making Good Progress

Posted by

A ‘friendly’ dog, which was found collapsed and clinging to life with a horrific machete wound to the side of her head in Liverpool, is making a remarkable recovery, thanks to the care being provided by the RSPCA.

Ruby, a friendly American Bulldog, was found severely injured in Priory Road, Anfield, near Stanley Park, on Thursday, October 11 by a passing motorist.

When she was found she had blood pouring from a massive flesh wound in the side of her head which had almost severed her ear off.

Instead of driving by the scene, the kind-hearted man rushed the dog to the PDSA in Kirkdale for life-saving emergency treatment. 

Ruby’s owner was traced through her microchip

He told RSPCA Inspectors that his pet ran off from her home at around 12.30 am on the day she was found with the horrific machete injuries.

He has now signed over Ruby into the RSPCA’s care where she will continue to recover from her ordeal before she’s found a new home.

RSPCA animal rescue officer Rachel Henderson was sent to investigate.

 She is still appealing for information to find the person responsible.

Rachel said:

“It’s clear Ruby was attacked with a machete in what can only be described as a vile incident.

“I have no idea why she was subjected to this horrific attack and believe she was injured shortly before she was found at around 9.30 am. Ruby is such a lovely and friendly dog, but this terrifying attack must have caused her a lot of pain and suffering.

“We have had little information from our original appeal so I would ask people to cast their mind back to see if they can remember anything which may help me trace the person responsible.”

Anyone with information about the incident should call the RSPCA’s appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
