Meet Dozer, an adorable Pit Bull who has been through the worst. Below is his story which I copied from his Facebook Page.
Dozer's story is a horrible one. I can't believe that this poor guy has survived this long.
Dozer was just rescued this week from an abusive household. The story about what happened isn't totally clear but from what we can gather, the husband's form of discipline was to repeatedly kick Dozer over and over on a regular basis. One night, the husband went to hit his wife and Dozer went after him and bit his ankle. Infuriated, the husband grabbed his gun and shot Dozer.
Dozer was able to run to the neighbor's house and hide under her porch. When the husband came out to shoot him again, the 80 year woman that lived in the house came out with a broom and warned that if he touched Dozer then he would have to deal with her.
Even though the elderly woman was initially afraid of Dozer, she protected him for days. Dozer sat under her porch, untreated, for 5 days.
During this time, Dozer repeatedly scratched at his gunshot wound. His wound is now 8 inches long, 4 inches wide and has a depth of 1 inch.
Currently, Dozer is being housed at a grooming facility and we are working to get him to Chicago so that he can get the intensive medical care that he needs.
At this point, Dozer already has a fever of over 103 degrees and he is only receiving oral antibiotics and pain pills. He needs x-rays, surgery, IV antibiotics, IV pain medications, heartworm testing and possibly treatment when he is strong enough, vaccinations, neutered, hospitalization, etc.

Now meet adorable Pit Bull siblings that have also been through a terrible time.
