“The dog looked like a little Frankenstein,” Theresa Sumpter, founder and director of DPC, told The Dodo. “He didn’t even look like a dog — I truly could not believe it.”
Sumpter rushed Courage to a vet to get him help. The puppy ended up having a long list of injuries: His jaw was broken, the bone under his eye was cracked.
Then there was the issue with his head — not only was it swollen, but it was infected, and Sumpter worried about permanent brain damage.
