Bo Ai Animal Protection Centre Of Guangyuan
Our founder, Du Yufeng, and a doctor and nurse from the pet hospital in Chengdu were driving on the highway towards the shelter when they noticed a Golden Retriever led on the side of the road. Du stopped her car and approached the dog, throwing food to show she was a friend. The Golden wagged his tail and approached everyone. He had been lying next to a rope with chain so had probably been used as a guard dog. His head and muzzle were very swollen, making his eyes almost close and on closer inspection, Du could see a stab mark in the top of his head. It was obviously very painful for him because, for a moment, he got angry. Du named him Nian Zong.
Back at the shelter his head wound was cleaned and he was given strong antibiotics and painkillers. His whole face is badly infected.
Du has seen this type of wound before. In the Dog Meat Trade. Butchers hit the dogs over the head with sticks, often with nails or hooks in the end of them She saw many of these injuries at Yulin. We don't know why Nian Zong's owners did this to him but whatever reason- he has been suffering for a while. We are actually wondering, because of his head injury, whether he escaped from slaughter....
