Miracle Recovery: Brave Dog Overcomes Fireworks Attack in Mexico, Finds New Beginning in the Healing Embrace of a Loving Home

My dog’s got no nose… Pooch whose face was destroyed when thugs tied fireworks to its jaw in Mexico is saved by US charity after undergoing reconstructive surgery

A dog whose nose was blown off when firecrackers were attached to his mouth has made a remarkable recovery after vets reconstructed his jaw.

The pup, pictured recovering after surgery, had four operations to rebuild his face in Mexico

Ms Lystra explained how the damage done to Braveheart was so severe that his jaw was blown to pieces and a prosthetic one had to be made.

She said: ‘I was contacted by someone in Mexico about Braveheart, they sent me a picture of him and my first instinct was to have the poor dog put down.

‘I had never done any rescue in that area so was unsure of the vets out there but a friend told me about Dr.Briseno, who thought he could help.

‘A new jaw was made for Braveheart, and he has four surgeries to rebuild his jaw.

‘He ended up staying at the practice in Mexico for two months until he was healthy enough to make the 11-hour drive to us, he has been with us for two months now.

‘Shortly after coming to us he had the tube removed from his nose and this seemed to alleviate a lot of discomforts.

Not much is known about Braveheart’s past as he was found by an animal charity after being injured. The dog is pictured healing from surgery with a cone around his neck

‘Vets here had no idea what it was, and we nearly lost him but he has made a remarkable recovery.’

Braveheart was found earlier this year, but it has been unclear as to what exactly caused the damage.

Charity head Tracy Lystra, 44, said her first ‘instinct was to have the poor dog put down’ when she was sent a photograph of Braveheart, pictured during surgery, from a colleague Mexico

Braveheart, pictured now his face has healed, is now a happy and friendly pooch at the Saving Huey Foundation and is learning not to jump at people when he gets excited

She said: ‘Braveheart is an amazing boy who loves people and other animals, he still gets a little too excited when he meets new friends but he’s learning not to jump.
