Mason is a 4-month old Yorkie puppy recovering from an unimaginable experience. Someone threw acid on him and left him to die.

Mason is recuperating in the gentle hands of specialists at Fulton County Animal Shelter in Sandy Springs, GA. However, he still has a long road to recovery ahead of him. The puppy was covered in chemical burns on most of his body. And he’s still in danger of going blind and suffering from severe infection.

However, veterinary specialist Chris Piscatelli notes the positive in Mason’s recovery:

“I think we’re seeing some improvement. The wounds are clipped and clean. We put him on pain medication so I think he’s more comfortable. His condition is stable.”

Currently, the pup is learning how fun playtime and belly rubs are thanks to his foster mom, Nikki.

A local news source reports that Mason’s wounds are healing, though he is still battling some infections. However, he is growing back new skin and the ulcers in his eyes are healing, but he will have scars for the rest of his life.
