Abused Dog Now Recovering With Foster Family

Arrow Fund shares update on Mooney, the dog found with cuts around his neck back in May.
        Authorities may never know what happened to the stray dog rescued in Henderson last month, but Mooney is now enjoying life with his new foster family.
        In May, members of the Henderson Animal Control found a black lab with injuries to his neck so severe, a local vet thought someone may have tried to cut his head off. The lab was weak and covered in bug bites. Animal Control contacted the Arrow Fund, which takes on extreme cases of animal abuse. Arrangements were made to fly the dog to Louisville to an animal hospital. He was named Mooney after that plane he was taken in.
        The Arrow Fund has been updating Mooney's progress through different treatments and surgeries.
        Officials there say Mooney is now with a foster family and is doing much better.
        On the Arrow Fund's Facebook Page, one of the foster coordinators says, "Even after experiencing neglect and horrific trauma, this boy's spirit is not broken. He gives the best kisses and just wants to play!"
