A pitbull that had been missing for a month, returned to its owner malnourished and with a terrible neck wound this week.  Her 7 puppies are missing as well.  The dog’s owner cannot afford the medical care and gave her up to doctors at Southeast Veterinary Specialists, who are hoping they can help heal the deep wounds and nurse her back to health.

Dr. Rose Lemarie says this is an extreme example, but she recommends pet owners do not tether their dogs and make sure they always have a large enough collar.
