    Default Rottweiler in La Mulata

    A beautiful rottweiler was found shot through the ear in La Mulata behind New Life church today. He was outside his owners' property, but the owners have not appeared. I am told he is normally inside the property but he was outside, everything was locked up and no one was answering. This dog is now at Dr Bob's. He has lost a lot of blood and may or may not survive. He realized we were trying to help him and actually tried to get himself into the vehicle but he was too weak without help.
    If you know how to contact the owners or are the owners, please contact Dr Bob in the morning. Thank you.

    Most likely, he escaped and wanted back in.

    Clearly, he likes the car

    Keep trying the house... somebody will appear soon -------- espero

    No one appeared at the house last night, I am told. I will try to speak to the German neighbours today, but my German is limited and they don't speak English or Spanish. I am concerned that there may have been ladrones who have left the owners of the dog tied up or dead inside and that they let the dog out and shot him. We sent the police to look but they obviously have no authority to go in uninvited. If the owners are away someone should have come to feed the dog, but there was no sign of anyone.

    I will check this morning to see if the dog survived the night. His blood was all over the driveway and he was in a bad way. It looked as though the intention had been to kill the dog and whoever it was may have succeeded.

    Rottiies are strong dogs so as long as he was still with you and you managed to stop the bleeding then he should pull through. Dogs ears are a nightmare to stop bleeding as they are inevitably moving their head and scratching at it wondering what the problem is. You can't easily bandage them as they just rip them off and so lots of talc or flour is the best thing.

    It would be difficult to hit the dogs ear with a bullet without hitting another part of the dog unless you were aiming directly at the dog front on and missed its head, rotties don't have big floppy ears that might be hit while bounding about. Are you sure it was shot? Just as I can see it the person would literally have to be face to face to miss any other part of the body while hitting the ear.

    I really wish we had rights to lynch these bastards who do this kind of thing, I would happily string someone up and slowly beat them to death for such cruel acts

    Might have grabbed the dog by the ear -- if it was intruder trying to get in/out

    Isobel,
    If you think you know the owner, please check it out.
    I am not in Sosua right now and am unable to make contact. Where is the villa located?
    When you say behind the New Life church, is it off the Lamulata road or is it off the road that runs parallel to the Lamulata road?
    In other words at the New Life church turn left, go by the church then take the first right.
    The villa there is the people I know. They are both German but speak English quite well.
    Mack.

    As far as I understand, the owner of the property is Wolfgang, the boss of Tejatech, but he hasn't lived there for the last month or so. He told people this morning that he would check to see if his dog was missing. There is, however, no dog on the property now. I am told the wife/girlfriend was still living there and always with the dog. She has not been seen for the last day or so either. One source told me Wolfgang's dog is very aggressive. Another told me the opposite. This dog, whoever he belongs to, was badly in shock, so even if he was usually aggressive, it may have transformed his behaviour. He was totally submissive with us and has let Dr Bob treat him without anaesthesia, because he is too weak to be anaesthetized. I have considerable experience of how animals close to death know whom they can trust to help. The same with dogs and horses. This dog knows, but he may be very aggressive under normal circumstances.
    This dog's ear had been half blown off and has a circular wound about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. There was a huge pool of blood [now washed away by the rain!] on the driveway. He has another smaller deeper wound immediately behind the ear which would imply that is where the bullet entered into his neck. Probably his ear flap saved his life and slowed down the bullet sufficiently to stop it killing him, though it would appear that the intention was to kill him.
    If this is not Wolfgang's dog, who does he belong to? Why would he be lying on Wolfgang's drive? Someone must have missed him. He has a stiff back leg, apparently from a previous broken leg. He is still alive and for the moment wanting to live. He responds well to affection and is a wonderful patient, but rotties don't have a good reputation for fighting to live when injured, so he needs his owner, if his owner is still alive, to give him some attention. He responds well to me,but I am not his owner, only someone who cares.

    Isobel, I don't know if it's the same dog, but last week there was a Rottie wandering our neighborhood. I didn't think anything of it because so many of my very close neighbors have more than 1 Rottie a piece and I just assumed that one of theirs was our wandering....
