Trooper, the Labrador Retriever is heavily bandaged and has a morphine patch to control the pain.

Authorities believe he was dragged for some distance behind a truck or car before he was found on July 6th near Avenue 17 and Road 23 1/2.

The Central California Labrador Retriever Rescue Foundation is now caring for Trooper ... but the treatment is expensive and the rescue group is asking for help.

Donations are payable to Trooper, in care of CCLRR, P.O. Box 1484, Clovis, CA, 93613. More information is also available at
