Update On Trooper- A New Level

Trooper has been doing well and recovering from his eye surgery. He continues to heal both inside and out with his loving foster family. He has developed a fondness for the couch and all the good things life has to offer.




While his wounds continue to improve, there was one place under his jaw that was not healing. The good folks at Big Lick Veterinary Services took him back for another surgery, and found this, a bullet fragment.





Wow- for me the story has taken on another level. Trooper has now lost his eye and part of his lip. He also had a broken leg from a puncture wound that will most likely cause him problems in the future.

Trooper did not lose his heart, his dignity, or his will to live. 

He has gained a loving family, an outpouring of support from around the country, and a trust in other living creatures, both animals and humans. 

Let's add some justice to the above list of positives. The person or people that did this to Trooper are still out there, and the same scenario could and may have happened to other dogs. Enough is enough.

We will get some more information from the Vet and report it to the authorities and media in the community where he was found. The more people that demand some answers, the better response we'll have, and we need some help. Any takers?

  1. As you know, we have posted a link to Trooper's saga from your blog on the Best Friends Network. We sure hope this generates some nationwide publicity for this wonderful animal.

  7. I know Trooper's being treated in Roanoke, VA, but wasn't he found elsewhere? In what city was he found? I'm a VA prosecutor. I met a lawyer from the Attorney General's office who is pretty active in pursuing animal cruelty cases. She might have some suggestions if he was found in VA. Let me know. Thanks. luhlar@gmail.com

  11. I was the person who found Trooper in my yard back in September. From what I have found, animal abuse occurs usually within a 5 mile radius of where an animal is found. In Trooper's case, this encompasses 3 different Law Enforcement Agencies.

    Here are the addresses you need.
    Sheriff Michael Taylor
    Pittsylvania County VA
    Post Office Box 407
    Chatham Virginia 24531

    (The above is the actual, physical location in which Trooper was found. Trooper was literally 50 feet inside this jurisdiction where I located him.)

    Sheriff Lane Perry
    Henry County VA
    3250 Kings Mountain Road
    Martinsville, VA 24112

    (the above is the next closest jurisdiction, by literally 50 feet, from where he was found. It is a strong possibility that he actually was abused in this area, but that is just my own opinion & suspicion).

    Sheriff Sam Page
    Rockingham County, NC
    Law & Order Bldg.
    NC Hwy 65
    Wentworth, NC 27375

    (The above area is less than 2 miles from where Trooper was located).

    It is bad enough for law enforcement to ignore things, but it is shameless to allow this kind of mistreatment to not even be worthy of investigation. I hope a combination of pressure, persistence & shame will motivate someone to take some sort of action.
