Unfortunately, there is little hope of finding the culprit who did such an evil deed; little Lille was picked up as a stray, and there is no history of her past available.

A volunteer from Paw Patrol Animal Rescue rushed Lille to the Creek Crossing Animal Hospital where the painful band which was under open sores and digging into her flesh was removed. The pressure of the rubber band invaded her nasal cavity.

As of Monday, Lille still has deep grooves in her muzzle and is currently on antibiotics. Her doctors hope she has no long term effects from the trauma, but as is commonly the ultimate forgiving nature of dogs, Lille stillwags her tail in delight whenever someone calls her name.

Get well soon Lille.
