JACKSON COUNTY, Ore.-- Two Jackson County men are facing felony charges of animal abuse after authorities say they performed a botched medical procedure on a dog using a razor blade.

NewsWatch 12's Eliana Sheriff finds out how the dog is today after spending a few months recovering in foster care.
Jenna Evertt says, "I wanted a German Shepherd but I saw him so I sent him to my boyfriend and said what do you think of this one? And he said we should meet him."

Jenna fell in love when she met Cash and learned he was placed in the shelter because he was taken away from an abusive situation.

Jenna Evertt says, "When I went to meet him they said he had a thing that happened to him in his former home and that's why he was in the shelter. Watching him play you'd never guess he was abused."

According to court documents, back in January, two men were arrested after performing a botched castration on Cash with a razor blade.

The documents say Cash's former owner, Pedro Castellano Sabino hired his friend, Miguel Angel Rizo Flores to castrate the dog.

The old owner told authorities at the time he thought it would stop his dog from running away.
But, after the procedure, Cash ran away to a neighbor’s house for help.

Jenna Evertt says, "He's such a smart dog like the fact he would go get himself help."

Cash was losing a lot of blood and had to be rushed into emergency surgery.

Officials say because the men weren't trained for this, they should have taken the dog to a vet.
Jenna Evertt says, "I understand they had experience castrating cows before but people need to understand dogs are family."

The two men have felony animal abuse charges for unlawfully and recklessly causing serious physical injury to a dog.

Cash on the other hand-- is now starting a new journey.

Jenna Evertt says, "I hit the dog jackpot with this guy for sure, he's a perfect animal."
