Formerly Abused Pup Was Saved From Dog-Fighting Ring And Now He Helps Others In This Way

Hooch was rescued three years ago by Marley’s Mutts in California. Hooch had a horribly rough start in life. Someone had chopped off his ears and removed his tongue. Amy Klein from Marley’s Mutts thinks that Hooch was probably used as a bait dog in someone’s dog fighting ring. Without a tongue, Hooch couldn’t eat properly and was 40 pounds underweight.

At Marley’s Mutts, they started to feed him with a feeding tube to get his weight back up. Now they feed his dry food by hand after soaking it in water.

To drink, Hooch has to dunk his whole head under water. Hooch was adopted by Zack Skow, founder of Marley’s Mutts, and he now weighs 93 pounds! Hooch and Skow work to help others in their community.
