He's a lover, not a fighter.

Notch, a six-year old Dogue de Bordeaux pit bull cross has horrible injuries, likely the result of other dogs attacking him, said the Cowichan and District SPCA's Sandi Trent.

The animal protection agency is asking for area residents' help to pay for his medical bills. They're estimated to be about $2,000.

"He has no teeth, so he couldn't defend himself," she said.

On top of his numerous lacerations and injuries, Notch also required surgery to remove an egg-sized rock from his stomach.

Despite his various medical concerns, Trent said the dog is the most loveable dog around.

"He's a real sweetheart; he gives the best kisses," she said. "To know him is to love him."

To help Notch and/or other animals like him, you can donate online at www.spca.bc.ca/medicalemergency or in person at 7550 Bell McKinnon Rd.
