OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) — Oklahoma City Animal Welfare is searching for information after a puppy was found wounded in southwest Oklahoma City. Someone intentionally cut off both of his ears at the scalp.

“It’s amazing to us after what he’s been through, you see him today and he’s happy and wanting to play, be a normal puppy,” said John Gary, the superintendent of OKC Animal Welfare. “But I can imagine whenever this was happening to him, it was pretty horrific.”

Rocky is doing well now, despite his injuries.

“It looks really bad and we’ve had to worry about infection, so we’re fighting those things right now and hopefully nothing gets any worse,” said Gary.

Rocky’s hearing is intact, and veterinarians believe he will grow up to be a normal, healthy dog.
