Well to start off I recently moved from Milwaukee,Wisconsin to the Baraboo area for a job. Along with me on the move to baraboo were my two dogs, booker and clarice. Booker is a 9 year old Boston Terrier who has overcame challenging health issues. Clarice is a 4 year old Yorkie Terrier Mix who I adopted about one year ago from the Milwaukee Humane Society. Clarice is a very friendly and playful dog who can always put a smile on your face.
On 4/25/17 I received a call from management of the Canyon Pointe Apartments I live at. This call was to inform me that someone has placed small cut up pieces of hotdogs through the hallway of my building and outside grassy area. Inside these hotdogs pieces were about 3-5 small finishing nails!!! Upon hearing this it immediately alerted me. As I was letting my dogs out earlier that day I noticed my Yorkie (Clarice) eat 3 of the small hotdogs pieces before I pulled her away. I didn't think much of the hotdogs and figured they fell out of someone's garbage or dropped by a small kids. I spoke with several other people who live in the same building as me and came to a conclusion that this incident was done on purpose to target dogs at the apartment.
I then took Clarice to the vet for an Xray which revealed 6 nails stuck inside her stomach and 1 somehow luckily on its way out. The option to leave then in her stomach and hope for a safe exit is too risky due to the sharp nails possibly puncturing holes inside her body. Surgery is the only reasonable option.
A police report was files regarding this incident.
My animals are like my children and I'd appreciate any donation or help.
Also thanks to Hill-Dale Veterinary Hospital for all their help with this horrible situation.
