The Villalobos Rescue Center in southern Louisiana is sadly no stranger to unfortunate cases of abused and abandoned animals. However, this Pit Bull discovered outside a local jail by one of their employees was in a particularly awful situation.
Now named Curtis, the pup was suffering from a gunshot wound but he wouldn't go down without a fight.
Warning: some of the images of his wounds are very graphic.
He was so exhausted from enduring on his own that they didn't even have to use tranquilizers on him.
He feel asleep as soon as they began working on him.
