The Only Thing Caitlyn Is Now Scared of Is Losing Her Toy

Share

The only concern Caitlyn, the dog that was found with her mouth taped shut, has is making sure her toys and ball aren’t taken away from her.

“She has made tremendous strides in her recovery,” says the director anti-cruelty and outreach Aldwin Roman at the Charleston Humane Society.

If you recall Caitlyn was sold for $10 during Memorial Day weekend and later returned to her Charleston, South Carolina home with her muzzle so tightly shut with electrical tape the blood circulation to her tongue was cut off. Police later arrested William Leonard Dodson and charged him with ill treatment of an animal involving torture.

There are still scars around her mouth that Roman believes may be permanent but her emotional scars are healing. Roman told HDL that she is still hesitant around some people, especially larger men, but is making progress.

While she is on her way to recovery, the organization needs to keep her in foster care until the criminal case against Dodson is completed.
