Dog found with rubber band embedded around her nose and mouth

MESQUITE (CBS NEWS)  - A pet rescue group in Mesquite helped recover and care for a dog found last week with a rubber band embedded around the dog's nose and mouth, CBS Dallas reports..

Paws Patrol Pet Rescue says the rubber band was wrapped around the dog's nose and "dug all the way through to her sinus cavity."

The dog, Lille, underwent successful surgery at Creek Crossing Animal Clinic in Mesquite, a suburb east of Dallas. The surgery was paid for by private donations.

Lille has a long recovery ahead of her, but has already settled into a foster home, where she's made friends with a bulldog.

It is unclear if the party responsible for the animal abuse has been identified.
