These pictures were posted by Animal Rescue Cobh:

"Word of caution to any dog owners in cobh - it's a fright to God when you can't even keep your own family dog out in the back garden without him being abused. Our family dog who wouldn't hurt a fly has been minding his own business in the back garden when some lowlife poured some sort something over him which has been described by the vet as a sort of chemical. The holes in his back are from someone poking him with an iron through the fence. So everyone please keep an eye on your dogs and if you see any suspicious activity around a house please report to the Gardai! We are absolutely devastated that someone would do this to our dog"
