Cupcake Pet's Story or Bio
It was New Year’s Eve 2014 when officers at the Orange County Animal Services shelter received a call about a dog wandering around in a field. Once he was picked up, it immediately became obvious that the dog was a lot more than just a stray. In fact, once the volunteers saw the many wounds on his body, they immediately transferred him to a local emergency vet. Champion, like many ‘strays’ was under a year old, covered in extensive wounds (likely from bites), starving and had lost a lot of blood. Bait dogs are often sweet, submissive animals, and Champion was no exception. After many surgeries and blood transfusions, Champion came to live with us. He does have many visible scars covering his body, but we try to use those “funny looks” we receive from others as an opportunity to educate people about the importance of rescue and the realities of dog fighting. Champion is truly the perfect Dogbassador!
