Neighbor ran over dog with lawnmower for mating with his female dog

A friendly, three-year-old German shepherd mix was the victim of extreme animal cruelty recently after a neighbor pinned the dog to the ground and ran over his legs with a lawnmower for mating with the man’s female dog. Both dogs were just reacting to their natural instincts – shame on all owners who do not take the time to get their pets spayed and neutered.

It had been a fine summer day when the shepherd, named Mommam, ran and played in the residential neighborhood of Thanlang, Phuket, Thailand. Running over to mount the female dog, tragically the dog’s life changed for the worse in just a few minutes; the female dog’s owner became so furious that he grabbed Mommam, restrained him to the ground and ran over his legs with a lawnmower. Despite the dog’s intense pain and agony, he was able to pull away from his torturer and dragged himself over to the spot where he loved to take naps; he writhed in agony. Later that day when his owner found his dog – he was shocked.

Mommam’s injuries were severe and life threatening. Because his owner was not able to afford the emergency care for his dog, Soi Dog Foundation stepped up to help. The dog was rushed to a local veterinary hospital for treatment. His front leg had been completely severed, and it has since been amputated. His back right leg is currently being treated by Soi Dog vets, who hope they can save it.

As can be seen in the video below, once Mommam’s injuries were treated and his pain was brought under control,  his joyful spirit has returned. His tail is wagging, and he is able to walk – or jump – using his left legs alone.

An investigation by Thailand’s animal cruelty officials is currently underway. The person who attacked the dog is facing criminal charges.

Mommam desperately needs donations to cover his medical care. Please give today: http://bit.ly/save-mommam

 Mommam’s recovery would not be possible without you. Thank you for helping him.

HIS LEGS WERE CHOPPED BY A LAWNMOWER – PLEASE HELP HIM!A couple weeks ago, we got a report of a terrible case of abuse against an innocent dog. His name is Mommam. This is his story. Mommam was a happy 3-year-old boy who enjoyed running and playing. That all changed in an instant. Mommam was cruelly punished for following his natural instincts. One day, he tried to mate with a neighbour’s female dog. Furious, the neighbour ran after Mommam and held him down. He then drove a lawnmower over poor Mommam’s legs.Mommam desperately needs donations to cover his medical care. Please give today: http://bit.ly/save-mommamDespite the terrible pain, Mommam managed to pull free from his attacker. He stumbled to his well-hidden naptime spot. And then he collapsed. When Mommam’s owner found him, he called Thailand’s animal cruelty investigation unit for help. Mommam was rushed to a local vet hospital for emergency treatment. But his owner was poor and unable to afford the medical care that Mommam would need to save his life. Victims of abuse like Mommam cannot survive without people like you. Will you help?
