On Thursday afternoon, the Charleston Animal Society in South Carolina, released updated information on the young, injured Staffordshire-mix dog who was found on Wednesday in the Chicora Cherokee neighborhood with electrical tape secured tightly around her muzzle.

According to the shelter, the 15-month-old dog, named "Caitlyn," is doing well, given her condition. On Friday, Caitlyn will be transferred to a specialty care center for continued treatment for her injured snout and tongue.

The electrical tape was bound so tightly around her snout that the blood flow was cut off to her tongue and it is possible that the tissue may die; there is concern that the removal of her damaged tongue could lead to life-threatening complications.

Caitlyn - when she was found
Charleston Animal Society Director of Anti-Cruelty & Outreach Aldwin Roman commented on the cruel incident:

“This is the most malicious case of animal abuse I have seen in my entire career, to leave this dog in pain, unable to eat or drink and to now leave her in the position where her life is at stake because she may lose her tongue is heartbreaking.”

In an effort to find the person(s) responsible for Caitlyn's dire condition, the Charleston Animal Society is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of her abuser.

To help the Animal Society save Caitlyn and others like her, please give to Toby's Fund for medical care at
