When Megan Blais, 19, finished tending to the horses on her family's farm Saturday morning, she didn't expect to find her dog, Shelby, labouring in pain with a bloody wound.
"When I got to the house, I noticed she was just seeping blood everywhere," Blais said. "I brought her in the house and she had two-inch gaping holes on either side of her."
Blais' parents own a small hobby farm. They have six acres of land, but their four dogs are allowed to play on their neighbours' 160-acre property.
