Dog Was Tortured & Muzzle Taped In 2015, Now Becomes Mascot For Animal Cruelty

In 2015, Caitlyn, a chocolate-brown Bull Terrier mix, was found enduring the most sickening abuse. For about 48 hours, her owner had tightly taped her muzzle to stop her from barking, and this caused irreparable damage to Caitlyn.

When she was rescued, her muzzle has swollen about 3 times in size, and her jaw was completely broken. She was scared and skittish, and the horrifying pictures of the abuse left people shaken all around the world.

Her abuser, William Leonard Dodson, was eventually caught and sentenced to 5 years in prison. In addition, he is serving 15 years for other gun and drug related charges. Throughout the prosecution, Assistant Solicitor Ted Corvey formed a special bond with Caitlyn.
