The smell bothered Kelly to the point that she had to pull over. She got out of the car and walked over to where Rocco was to investigate the smell. At a quick glance, she still didn't know where that horrible smell was coming from. Then she took off Rocco's harness. Finally, Kelly found the unbelievable source of the smell.

On Rocco's chest, there was a huge gash, about 6 inches long and 1.5 inches deep. The injury was completely hidden by the harness, so Kelly hadn't noticed it. It was obvious that the smell was from the wound because it was badly infected. Rocco had to be taken to the vet as soon as possible.

It was fortunate for Rocco that the infection could be controlled. The vet gave Rocco some antibiotics and pain reliever and told Kelly that as soon as the infection was gone, Rocco would need surgery. Kelly was grateful to hear that Rocco was going to recover. But she still had absolutely no idea how Rocco got the injury and who was responsible for it.

The vet closely examined Rocco. She realized that his injury was caused by the harness he was wearing. The vet told Kelly that Rocco had most likely been wearing the harness since he was a puppy, and while he grew, the harness became embedded into his skin. Obviously, Kelly was extremely mad, so she called the woman who sold her Rocco.

When Kelly called the woman to tell her about Rocco's injury, she was completely caught off guard. The woman panicked and tried to bribe Kelly by promising that the owner would pay the medical bills. Kelly, knowing that Rocco was clearly abused, decided to call the police, instead.
