Princess P is the latest recipient of help from Cuties Fund at the Lucas County Dog Wardens Office. The medium-sized mixed breed dog has a severely embedded collar.
Dog Warden Julie Lyle is considering getting treatment for her at Ohio State Universitys college of veterinary medicine because the wound is so deep. It is 3 inches across and 5 inches deep.
We are consulting with OSU and have sent them photos of the wound, Ms. Lyle said. We expect to hear back from them tomorrow on whether they can help her there or will just advise us on her care here in-house.
Despite the injury, the 52-pound dog is surprisingly good-natured, wagging her tail and wanting to be petted.
She is estimated to be 5 or 6 years old and was picked up running at large on Parkside Boulevard near Dorr Street on Monday.
She was in such horrible shape, I wasnt sure if she was even going to make it through the night, Ms Lyle said. But even on Monday when she first came in, she was happy and wagging her tail. Shes got the sweetest little face; you cant not feel for this dog.

I would think the most likely explanation is that dog lost its owner and it had nobody to adjust the collar as it grew.
I hope they can do something for it.
Your surmise about the loss of the owner is probably not even close. I suspect, and I’ve seen it before, that it is just plain neglect. If the collar is small enough to almost choke the dog to death, it means the owner collared it and let the collar stay in one position.
Once the embedding began, the owner was afraid to try and remove it, or worse, take it to a vet for removal...law enforcement might get involved.
So the owner most likely released the dog in another city and let it be someone else’s problem.
contrary to what I was told as a child, most people are bad not good
I used to do phone work in the hood.Some of the animal neglect resulting in abuse was insane.I have seen a dog tied to a tree with chain 3 feet long that weighed more than the dog. Dog was deformed from being tied that way for so long with the weight pulling its neck down.
Dogs with wound and maggots in the wound.Entire litters with a bald mother from mange and all the pups with it.they were all put down.
Numerous times I called authorities. Upper management told me to mind to the companies business.I told them dont send me into those areas and I will, send me in and I will continue to report.
There are more people helping the dog than the one perdon who causef the problem.
how many family members didn’t help the dog
how many neighbors didn’t help the dog
everyone is out for themselves these days
it is revolting
That poor dog —
Maybe ghetto dwellers shooting each other and killing each other is not so bad after all. If they live like this..they don’t deserve to be in society.
Five inches deep? I’m not even going to go look at pictures as they just upset me. I hope they can help her!!
