“The saddest part is that after he was beaten and his jaw was broken he was chasing after owner to say, ‘why are you leaving me here?’” said Amy Roman with the rescue group.

The dog now named Nerak was given surgery at Lauderdale Veterinary Specialists.

Officials have not said whether the dog will be available for adoption once it is healed.

A website was set up to raise funds for the dog’s medical care.
