We may never know the full details of what happened to Wonder Boy, and the abuse he clearly endured, but we know the most important part - he survived.
Wonder Boy was dumped with another dog on a vacant property. The abandoned dogs were left without food, water, or shelter. They grew desperate and eventually began to prey on each other, with Wonder Boy taking the brunt. But a weeks ago, an anonymous caller reported the situation to the police and both dogs were brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control.
Wonder Boy had fresh wounds on top of scar tissue. Both ears were damaged; his left ear had a chunk missing and his right ear was crumpled over from scar tissue. His eyes were cut up and there were puncture wounds over most of his body. The medical team aged him at about two-years-old and estimated that he had been living in these conditions for a year, possibly longer.
"I have rescued many bait dogs. And Wonder Boy was worse than any bait dog I have ever seen," says Tina Petraline, president of Unbreakabull Bullies. "There's definitely more to this story. For sure."
