Dog Tied To A Tree With Garden Hose, Now Has Chance To Live

Comments Off on Dog Tied To A Tree With Garden Hose, Now Has Chance To Live

“Obviously it doesn’t take a genius to understand that the person who left this poor dog; did so because they couldn’t be bothered with it any more. Obviously never heard of animal groups that would have taken it in. They are merely cold hearted bastards; using up oxygen intended for decent people. Please contact police if you have any information!”

When Kaleigh Wetrich went for a walk with friends along the wooded area in north Oak Cliff County, Dallas, Texas, she never expected to find an abandoned dog, but she did.

The 6- to 8-month-old Boxer mix was emaciated and cruelly tied to a tree with a garden hose. He was deliberately left there to die.

Wetrich heard a faint bark coming from the woods. She followed the noise and found the innocent dog.

“I can’t just leave a living creature to die like that,” Wetrich told Fox News.

According to authorities, the dog that now goes by name Lucky was probably abandoned in the forest for at least a week prior to being found. Local rescue group, Apollo Rescue, saved Lucky as soon as Wetrich reported the incident.

Lucky was tied with a heavy garden hose and there was no food or water left for him. Rescuers say that he was close to organ failure but luckily he was found in time to save his life.

According to Steve Basham of Apollo Rescue, Lucky has a chance at survival. The rescue group is caring for the canine while local authorities try to build a case against the dog’s previous owner.

Finding whoever abandoned Lucky in the woods and charging the person(s) with animal cruelty will be a difficult task. The dog was left in a field with no address and there are no witnesses to this event.

Authorities encourage anyone with information to this crime to come forward.

“This is what you call a real lucky dog…to be struck at 50 miles per hour, so that his body was wedged in the grill vent of the car; then to walk away with minor injuries…is a miracle!! You just gotta see the video!”

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP)A dog who survived an 11-mile ride from Massachusetts to Rhode Island after being hit by a car and wedged into the grille has been reunited with its owners.

The owners, who weren’t identified, told WPRI-TV it’s a “miracle.”

East Providence Animal Control supervisor William Muggle said the owners claimed “Suzie” on Tuesday after seeing news reports. Animal control tells The Providence Journal they had veterinary paperwork with the dog’s microchip number.

Muggle said the female poodle mix ran in front of a car in Taunton, Mass., Sept. 20. The driver slammed on the brakes but didn’t see the dog.

Muggle said another motorist noticed it when the driver reached East Providence.

Animal control officers were able to free the fluffy white pooch, which suffered a concussion and minor injuries.

“Sorry about the video not being linked, ever since Vodpod swapped over to Lockerz, I have been having problems getting videos to attach to posts. It’s so bloody frustrating, can’t even have them as a widget either!!”
