A dog who was mistreated until his muzzle was deformed welcomes a new life with his loving owner


Earlier this year, a two-year-old Pointer mix was found on the streets of Tijuana by a rescuer

The poor dog, who has since been named Dwayne, was desperately scrounging for food while local residents threw scalding hot water and stones at him, disgusted by his deformities.

The rescuer then discovered the dog’s original guardian, who had bound his mouth with a c.r.u.e.l wire-muzzle and regularly kicked him with sticks.

The person was serving jail time for unrelated offense. Dwayne was left to fend for himself on the streets. To make matters worse, he was further wounded when he was attacked by two large dogs, causing severe head injuries and nearly removed his ears.

Thanks to the rescuer, the pup thankfully made it to the Helen Woodward Animal Center, an animal shelter located in Rancho Santa Fe, California that holds a passionate belief that “animals help people and people help animals through trust, unconditional love, and respect creates a legacy of caring.”
From Horrific Abuse to Caring Hands

Despite all of the horrific treatment the dog had endured, he had nothing but love to offer each person he met. He would lower his head, offering a lick and would gently press his body against anyone who came close.

The Helen Woodward center was determined to give Dwayne the life he deserved. Over the course of months, specialists repaired his severely malformed front leg and elbow, as well as performed a facial reconstruction surgery to repair the extreme mutilation of his nose and mouth.

A renowned stem cell therapy institute, Vet-Stem Biopharma, even stepped up to offer cutting-edge treatment to help Dwayne’s healing process.

The technology harvests tissue from an injured animal and delivers the animal’s own healing stems back to the site of the injury and throughout the body by IV. The procedure usually costs around $2,500 but Dr. Schaffer of Vet-Stem Biopharma was so touched by Dwayne’s story, he offered the procedure for free.

Determined to use every applicable modern medicine available to help heal his injuries, the Helen Woodward Center also provided laser therapy for the areas impacted by his facial reconstruction surgeries.

Laser treatments have been shown to speed the healing process, reduce inflammation, as well as help with pain. The sweet pup as a trooper through it all.

Dwayne’s story touched the hearts of thousands of animal lovers who helped to raise over $40,000 for his recovery. By August of 2017, the formerly abused and orphaned sweetheart of a dog was ready to find his forever home.

Generously, the center offered half off all of Dwayne’s medical expenses for life, just as long as his new family brings him into the center for his ongoing treatment.
