We rescued Nacho after he was found by a County employee chained to a fence and badly mauled. We don't know who did it or why he was left like this, only that he was. Therefore we are going to focus on the positive: watching our boy heal and watch with amazement as a community comes together over his struggle. He will get better, he will rehabilitate and he will know a future that is bright, happy, triumphant and glorious. I know many of you would like to find who did this to him, punish them accordingly and then have sandwich, but the fact is that we don't know who did this and don't know that we ever will. Lets stay focused on his care as he trudges down the difficult road ahead.

Nacho had surgery to repair about a dozen lacerations, mostly to his face and legs. He had his wounds treated and stitched up and he is heading home. He sustained some major injuries but their is no reason to keep him at the vet any longer than necessary. Dogs who have been through trauma (and those who haven't) can go kennel crazy relatively quickly and it can drastically increase their chances of developing separation anxiety.
"Macho Nacho" reminds us very much of Sally, one of our greatest success stories. Same situation: white Pit Bull, chained to fence and severely mauled and injured.

**any funds raised in excess of Nacho's expenses will go to help other dogs at Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue.
