Small dog mauled earlier this week, died Friday

Fynn loses his fight for life

For a while, there was hope Fynn could be saved, but his injuries were too extensive. On Friday afternoon, the two-year-old Bichon died.

Fynn was found Monday in a snowbank near Armstrong, seriously injured and covered in blood.

He was rushed to a veterinarian where he has been undergoing treatment for days, but the damage was too severe to save the 12-pound pooch.

Liesa Herdman Smith is heartbroken. She said X-rays of his neck showed puncture holes from a bite mark wound, which exposed his torn trachea to the oral cavity and other parts of his throat.

“His liver is also starting to shut down. Sadly this is something he can not recover from. The vets said they could try surgery, but we have opted to not put him through it as there would be no guarantee of a positive outcome,” Smith said.

“Thank you from the deepest part of my heart to all of you who walked through this journey with Fynn, I so wish the outcome was better. We are absolutely shattered as yesterday everything was looking so positive.”
