Dr. Christian Broadhurst removes Bo's staples.


Bo, the dog who was slashed last week several times with a sharp object, got his staples out Tuesday morning and is recovering at the Jacksonville Humane Society.

Dr. Christian Broadhurst took out Bo's staples. Bo is also recovering from kennel cough, and the Community Animal Hospital staff is taking care of him.

The Humane Society has set up a Facebook page for Bo to update his condition.

A $1,050 reward is being offered to help find the dog-slasher.

On Friday, residents of a development in Northwest Jacksonville found Bo covered in blood with life-threatening injuries across his body. They brought him to the Community Animal Hospital, where veterinarians operated to close the wounds.

One of the gashes was 4 inches long.

The city of Jacksonville's Animal Care and Protective Services sent a cruelty investigator to examine the dog and investigate the case, but the attacker has not been identified.

Anyone with information about Bo’s attack is asked to call Animal Care and Protective services at 904-630-CITY. To donate to Bo’s Fund, visit or call 904-725-8766.
