Eric the English Bull Terrier travelled thousands of miles to meet his new adoptive mom and when he arrived he was taken straight to the vets.

While they thought they would be treating a simple cyst, when the vets took a closer look they found something a lot more shocking.

An X-ray revealed some truths behind Eric’s past and it turns out he had suffered more trauma than first thought.
