ROME, GA (CBS ATLANTA) -
Braveheart the dog is living up to his name. He is recovering from surgery to repair a slit throat.
Cathy Roth of the Animal Rescue League of Northwest Georgia saved Braveheart from a local county shelter.
"The story I got when I picked him up from the shelter was the neighbors had been complaining that he barked so much and their belief is one of the neighbors slit his throat," Roth said.
Roth said she also gained access to a discussion on Facebook where Braveheart's owner confirmed that as well.
"It's beyond horrifying to me," Roth told CBS Atlanta News.
The dog's throat was slit open on Sunday night. The owner apparently couldn't pay for surgery and gave the dog to a county animal shelter.
"The trachea was exposed and all the other structures were exposed. Luckily, there was no damage to any of them, which is why he was able to live," Roth said.
Braveheart underwent surgery Wednesday morning. Thursday night, he was doing great and even jumping for a squeaky toy. He was also enjoying licking people.
"He's such a sweet and loving dog," Roth said.
It's not clear if Braveheart will ever be able to bark again, but he did make several whimpering sounds on Thursday.
Roth said she's having difficulty finding a law enforcement agency that will investigate the case. The Animal Rescue League of Northwest Georgia is offering a $1,500 reward for information leading to an arrest.
Donations to help cover Braveheart's vet bills can me made directly to the Whatley-Kinney Veterinary Clinic at 415 Plainville Rd. NE, Rome, 30161. Their phone number is 706-291-4587.

Tuesday 15 June 2010: The English Defence League (EDL) clashed with Muslims Against Crusades (MAC) during a Freedom of the Borough parade by the Royal Anglican soldiers, who had just returned from service in Afghanistan. At least two people were arrested, one was charged with having a knife.

Far right nationalists and Muslim extremists clashed as the Royal Anglian Regiment marched through Barking today.
About 50 members of a group called Muslims Against the Crusades heckled soldiers shouting "murderers" and brandished placards proclaiming "British soldiers are cowards" during a homecoming parade for troops.
They were met with counter-demonstration of nationalists including members of the extreme anti Islam English Defence League shouting "scum" and "Allah, Allah, who the f***k is Allah".
The rival groups faced off across Barking's main shopping street.
Moments after the soldiers passed by tensions reached boiling point as nationalists broke police lines and charged across the road, clashing with the Muslim protesters.
Police quickly separated the two groups and escorted the Islamists to the tube station.

Although there is no reliable estimate as to how many dogs have had their vocal cords cut, veterinarians and other animal experts say that dogs with no bark can readily be found — but not necessarily heard — in private homes, on the show-dog circuit, and even on the turf of drug dealers, who are said to prefer their attack dogs silent.
The surgery usually leaves the animal with something between a wheeze and a squeak. The procedure, commonly referred to as debarking, has been around for decades, but has fallen out of favor, especially among younger veterinarians and animal-rights advocates.
Critics of the debarking procedure say it is outdated and inhumane, one that destroys an animal’s central means of communication merely for the owner’s convenience. Many veterinarians refuse to do the surgery on ethical grounds. Those who do rarely advertise it.
New Jersey bans devocalization surgery except for medical or therapeutic reasons, as do Britain and other European countries. Similar legislation is pending in Massachusetts, while Ohio restricts the surgery to nonviolent dogs.
But there are still those who perform the operation, and they and other advocates defend the surgery as a useful option for dog owners facing noise complaints and possible eviction.
