Animal abuse is a sign of just how cruel human beings can be, and this case is no different. This pooch can be thankful that he was found in time and provided with the necessary attention he needed before succumbing to the elements.
A small dog was found behind a Canadian shopping center with electrical tape around his muzzle and his legs, making it difficult for him to even move around and find help. One man who was walking his own dogs found the poor pup lying in the grass on December 17, 2015 and was shocked to see the state of the dog.
The local Humane Society was called and found the dog in painful condition: his paws and mouth were swollen, he could barely walk, and had difficulties breathing. The poor pup was immediately rushed to a hospital to receive veterinary care.
They estimate that he’s about seven years old, and they named him Justice. He already had a few preexisting conditions including problems with his mouth and teeth, a cropped tail, and heart worms.
Thankfully, a man was arrested for this act of cruelty, but it turns out he wasn’t the dog’s owner. We can all be glad that someone is paying for the horrible dead and suffering that this unlucky canine has had to endure.
Justice continues to respond well to treatment, although the damage to the tissues inside his mouth do require a lot of medical attention.
They can only hope that his scars will heal with time and that he’ll find the forever home he deserves.
