Bandit was rescued by Adopt-A-Bull rescue from a local high-kill shelter in Florida. He needed surgery to fix his many leg problems, but he was too emanciated and weak to undergo anesthesia. He also had a severly swollen jaw from abscessed teeth; a result of either being neglected and starved long enough that the bones in his jaw fused together- or from being traumatically injured. The photos below show him when he was first rescued. Warning, these photos are very graphic, if you do not wish to see bulldogs in peril, do not view the pictures below. He was in rescue for a year.
Hi I'm Bandit! I wuz rescued frum a local high-kill shelter in Miami. I wuz in pretty ruff shape...I needed surgery to fix my leg, but da doc said i wuz waaay to thin and weak to go under "da knife." i also cudn't hardly open my mouth.... my jaw wuz severely swollen frum abscessed teeth...da doc said it wuz a result of either being neglected and starved long enough dat da bones in my jaw fused together! or frum being traumatically injured (either physically abused or hit by a car, etc). But after 6 months of bein hand fed, lubbed on, and cared for, i wuz finally healthy enuff to have my neuter and leg surgeries! "Only" a year after i came to rescue, i finally wuz able to find my furever family. i just lub my lil human puppies and all der friends who lub to pway wif me! life is good now! -lub, Bandit
