In Brooksville, Florida, a starved dog named Chi Chi, left heavily chained up in the backyard of her home with no food or water, ate her own puppies to survive. Hernando County Sheriff’s Office made the grizzly and heartbreaking discovery after authorities were called by a neighbor, to a home on Leonard Street, who claimed he had been bitten by one of the dogs. deandre-goodson-2

According to BayNews9, animal control officers arrested Deandre Goodson, 21 for one count of animal cruelty. Three dogs were found tied up without water, but Chi Chi had been suffering the worst. Her ears were mutilated, and she had multiple bites over her entire emaciated body. When discovered, the dog was too weak to walk. In a statement released on Tuesday, the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office stated:

“Authorities were able to contact Goodson by phone who agreed to meet deputies at the Hernando County Animal Services offices in Brooksville. Goodson said a friend Breon Wyatt had given him the dog about a year ago. He indicated the dog got out of the yard a couple of months ago and he had only recently found Chi Chi and brought her back home. ..

“Goodson confirmed Chi Chi gave birth to two puppies about two weeks ago, but she had eaten them.”

Goodson told authorities he fed Chi Chi regularly, but had no idea why she seemed starved. He explained the dog’s injuries were a result of the other dogs attacking her, but had not taken her to the vet for treatment. The dog is currently receiving medical attention.

Goodson remains in jail in lieu of a $5,000 bond.

    Il doit prendre la perpétuité, s’est un monstre et un danger pour la société. Pas de pitié pour cet assassin. J’espère que le petit loulou trouvera une bonne famille.

    What a POS, I don’t believe a word this guy said. Poor baby can’t imagine that you had to kill your own puppies to survive.

    LYING SACK OF SHIT !!! this will happen again with this punk ass in the future “UGH”
    glad which ever dog bit the neighbor, if not Chi Chi would be dead soon, actually surprised still alive….and I’m sure the neighbor (neighbors) have watched this go on for awhile, if he/she bit him and the are all chained well there ya go.

    Only ONE count of animal cruelty? There were three dogs left without food or water. This poor soul looks like she was used as a bait dog. That she had to eat her puppies (I highly suspect they died first – I’m making myself believe that) to survive is the worst cruelty. This monster should be banned from ever being within a mile of another animal for the rest of his life! I hope this sweet girl gets healthy and gets the perfect home, and that the monster who failed her is put in prison for a very long time.

      i take comfort in that L.S.
      She has no milk and i do believe they did not live long . i do believe this sad little person could not eat her babies no matter how hungrey she was.Shes not a monster . More insult to injury.she will live and she will be a happy loving house puppy. she knows what it means to be

      • linda says:

        True there is no proof she ate her babies, but if she did…she did it because of the the conditions of her and her babies. Dogs and cats will if they sense a problem with their newborns if left to fend for themselves.

  7. susispot says:

    This buffoon thinks we are as stupid as he is. Watch you back, moron, karma is looking for you. Prayers for the sad mama dog.

  8. Sheri says:

    The stupid POS who is responsible for those dogs needs to be thrown in solitary confinement for a few days without food or water and see how he likes it. Maybe he’ll learn a lesson. Idiot!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Barkley's Mom says:

    So we are supposed to believe this fabrication of Deandre Goodson? May he rot in jail for what he has allowed to happen to these dogs!

  10. Kathryn Aldridge says:

    OMFG! That a$$hole is LYING! He didn’t feed the dog and LET her eat her own pups! I’m sure it broke her HEART that she had to do that! I’m so RELIEVED that someone is taking care of her now. And if the other dogs attacked her, why didn’t he DO something about it??? And why didn’t he take her to a vet? I strongly suspect a dog fighting ring is involved here and I hope they send his sorry a$$ to JAIL for a LONG TIME! 😈

  11. ellen cottone says:

    clearly a bait dog.just think with a little more good old fahion police work maybe you can bust the local dog fighting ring.
    and stop the real reason for this gross and unreported horror

  12. Brenda Minarik says:

    We need an accurate detailed account to enter into a main data base this would give authorities and Shelters a better overview of these abusers more needs to be done to protect them we also need follow up so that we can reach the proper agencies in order to find solutions to the problems we need a hot line for animal abuse so that the Rescue groups can be made aware of the problems we can make a difference we can create a network of humanitarians helping to keep our animals and to help find the animals that need our help

    • Carolyn Moon says:

      Sofers, you rock! Please go get her and love her to death.
      Does anyone know where Chi Chi is at? I would like to donate money for her care. Please keep us updated. I will be crushed if some org put her down.

  13. lilsdad73 says:

    Oh my God, Chi Chi you poor sweet, precious one, to have been so desperate to have resorted to this – at a time when you’d be normally bonding with your young ones. This trauma needn’t have been inflicted upon you, it’s worse than horrific. It makes you wonder if any animal could truly recover, mentally and emotionally from this experience. Get well soon, and I wish you a long and happ(ier) life. ❤️

  14. ellen cottone says:

    ok ,
    so now that we all got it out of our system what we would like to do to the dogs owner.
    which is really not helpful in anyway. how is the dog and how can we come together and get her into a loving home?
    She has been rescued from about as bad as it can be.The pic where she greets her rescue , trying to stand with her battered hip lifting her chin wih hope and relief thru tears looking out of her one good eye hoping against hope not to be
    overpowered , restrainted and torn to peices again.
    This is a better use of our power to help.
    I just think its a set back . Posting crazy about what needs to happen to the former owner serves no real solution and seems to only strenthen the cycle of violance. shouldnt we be saving animals?How can people curse and talk violance
    and show pity for a vicim of violance and neglect?

    • linda says:

      We are angry!!!Our comments are a way to vent to those ugly people who abuse animals. This is what we need to do. Show our anger towards those sick people. Not all of us can save them through donations. How can we not show anger. This kind of post shows awareness and they expect animal lovers to comment.

      • ellen cottone says:

        nothing is ever accomplished with anger.
        you cant be pro active and angrey at the same time. when you anger ,
        you squander your magic powers to help. or inspire help, wich could key in help and rescue.

        we can change the wordl for animals left in terriable perdiciments.
        will you help me. friend…

      • linda says:

        I can’t help but get angry at people who abuse animals. It doesn’t get any where, but, it’s my way of venting. Hate feeling helpless.

  15. Fay Bowermaster says:

    Couldn’t feed that darling dog but you could afford fucking braids in your hair, you sicken me you depraved piece of garbage. I wish only the very best going forward for Chi-Chi and for the piece of “garbage” bad Karma this way cometh!

    I just came across this post after reading another on an abused dog. I am the director of Pure Hearts Rescue and we now have Chichi. She is doing great and is one of the sweetest dogs we have met. She is now at a healthy weight of 44 pounds, I believe she was under 18 when they found her. She does have neurological injuries that have caused a permanent head tilt and loss of vision in one eye. Follow us on Facebook, Pure Hearts Rescue for current pictures.

  17. ellen cottone says:

    She survived it all.
    She’s worth it.
    She never imagined,
    that one day,
    she,, would not be hungry and alone.
    Hurt and neglected. Exposed to the elements.
    And creachers in the night.
    And one day it changed.

    Some body saw,
    Somebody said something,
    Somebody did something.
    And chi chi did the rest.

    She lived. Long enough to be saved

  18. Donna Cox says:

    First off ,that is NOT a man , he is a good for nothing lying monster . That mother did not eat her puppies , he probably sold them to a dog fighting ring and the mother was probably a bait dog , If he fed them regularly they would not be emancipated and the mother would have no reason to supposedly eat her babies

  19. N says:

    Who ever are crul too Anumals will get the death Penthy from God only Him will cut those who bad things. Will be no more . The former things has pass away God will make al, things new. Any way love you Animals Pets as one.

    Well it is obvious he is into dog fighting. Wouldn’t take much to bust the entire lot of them!!! It’s time these coward men who feel macho through innocent animals paid the proper price for justice. They should have mandatory prison time! Second offense should be doubled time! THAT is what will put an end to this madness. So what about it prosecutors and judges?!!! All of these lazy macho wanna be thugs getting dogs to fight wouldn’t be so eager if they had a price to pay. The big time guys are still going to keep on doing what they do anyway. But it would shutdown so much activity from every tom dick and harry getting a dog to fight. They need to find a fricking job!!!
