dog face destroyed fireworks reconstruction surgery

A dog whose nose was blown off when fireworks were put into his mouth has made an amazing recuperation after vets recreated his jaw.

One-year-old Braveheart experienced four medical procedures in the wake of being found by an animal rescue organization in Sonora, Mexico.

At the point when he was all around ok to travel, the cute dog was sent to The Saving Huey Foundation in California, U.S., to live at their sanctuary.

The foundation, which is ran by Tracy Lystra, 44, consented to pay for Braveheart’s recuperation and said that the pooch is currently cheerful and adores playing with his rescue little dog companions.

Ms Lystra clarified how the damage done to Braveheart was serious to such an extent that his jaw was blown to pieces and a prosthetic one must be made.

In a written statement to Daily Mail she said: ‘I was contacted by someone in Mexico about Braveheart, they sent me a picture of him and my first instinct was to have the poor dog put down.

‘I had never done any rescue in that area so I was unsure of the vets out there but a friend told me about Dr.Briseno, who thought he could help.
‘A new jaw was made for Braveheart, and he has four surgeries to rebuild his jaw.
‘He ended up staying at the practice in Mexico for two months until he was healthy enough to make the 11-hour drive to us, he has been with us for two months now.
‘Shortly after coming to us he had the tube removed from his nose and this seemed to alleviate a lot of discomforts.
‘Vets here had no idea what it was, and we nearly lost him but he has made a remarkable recovery.’

A little dog named Braveheart was discovered not long ago, however it has been unclear as to what precisely caused the damage.

Tracy stated: ‘I do not know much about Braveheart’s past, as is the case with the majority of our cases.
‘In Braveheart’s case his surgeon in Mexico, as well as the hospital staff here in the U.S., agree that it appears as if he had explosives put in his mouth.
‘Because of the damage it is believed that the explosive was more than likely a firecracker.’

Ms Lystra said that Braveheart is recuperating well overall and is a happy pooch at her charity.

According to Daily Mail She stated: ‘Braveheart is an amazing boy who loves people and other animals, he still gets a little too excited when he meets new friends but he’s learning not to jump.
‘I would be lying if I said that late at night, I didn’t have awful thoughts as to what I would do to the people who commit such crimes.
‘I am able to take a lot of what I see and hide it from my emotions, but there are times it definitely catches up with me.’

Not much is known about Braveheart’s past as he was found by an animal charity after being injured. The dog is pictured healing from surgery with a cone around his neck

Ms Lystra added: ‘Many people see an animal in pain and either turn a blind eye to it or want to end the animals’ life.

‘While Saving Huey Foundation does not condone suffering, we do want to offer second chances to the lives that can sustain such an offering.’
