Tortured 3-month-old puppy tossed over fence fighting for his life


Featured Product

When a devastated neighbor witnessed a three-month-old puppy being tossed over a high fence on Wednesday night, she reached out for help to Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. Caleb the pup

The pup was immediately rushed from Fulton County Animal Services in Atlanta, Georgia to the rescue’s veterinary partner where the tiny pooch dubbed Caleb had far worse injuries than expected as the result of a cruel fall. His initial shocking injury report included the following: Caleb the pup 2

“Upon being examined by the medical team they discovered this puppy was in far worse shape than originally known,” stated Jackie.  “Poor Caleb suffered not only head trauma, but he’s clearly emaciated, covered in what looks to be old cigarette burns, and they found an “abnormal” anus! The medical team was so upset by his condition that a cruelty investigation is being started. There is no question that Caleb suffered cruel and sadistic torture over time. They also discovered he has a broken jaw.” Caleb the pup 3

While it cannot be proven that Caleb had been sexually assaulted, it doesn’t take much to see that he was abused. Miraculously Caleb survived the night and is being transferred this morning to a more specialized veterinary hospital for the best care possible.Caleb the pup 4 His white blood cell count is extremely low, and the tiny pooch remains in septic shock. Veterinarians give Caleb a 30% of survival. If ever an innocent puppy needed an angel to guard over him, this is everyone’s wish this morning. Caleb’s fight for life can be followed on Facebook here.

    There is no reason at all to keep anyone capable of this kind of cruelty alive. NONE. Not only are they capable of doing this to a helpless puppy and undoubtedly many other pets, but every single person in their lives, including children and significant others. This creature is a monster.

    Makes me sick and extremely angry. Whoever did this has no compassion and lots of anger built up inside of them.they should be locked up! The judges in this country NEEED to start puns hung the bastards that do this!! And give out jail time. Let me spend 1 month torturing him the way he did this sweet innocent angel and you won’t be able to recognize him!!

      Yes they know nothing will happen to them other than slap on wrist. We need to do same thing to them. It makes me cry to see Caleb poor baby. I hope they rot in hell. Our legal system needs to step up and say enough is enough. maybe we need to bring chain gangs back or vote in different judges because they do nothing to them.

    I had a 5 week old boxer that got her jaws caught in a puppy gate and broke her jaws. She was in tremendous pain! We rushed her to UT Vet Hospital 2 hours away to be helped. Is this baby in pain? Please sedate him and give him some
    Morphine….please take care of his pain so that his spirit can heal. ????

      If I had seen that puppy thrown over a fence in that shape I would have went over on the other side and found the low life monster myself!!! And yes I have a permit to carry. Monsters like that won’t stop. More animals will be abused and killed and then children if it hasn’t already happened. That is nothing but evil in its worse form.

        I absolutely agree with you. I’M SO ANGRY!!!! I want to climb over that fence RIGHT NOW!!! If I read it right, I think it happened in Atlanta, GA and Caleb was taken to Fulton County Animal Services at first and then transferred. I’m not clear on where he died. Maybe Rescue Dogs Rock NYC? I’ve been combing through the internet to find more information. Honest to God, there are so many people who want justice for that sweet puppy. You going over the fence? I’m WITH YOU!

    I hope the puppy survives this incredibly inhumane treatment. I also hope the person who did this is prosecuted and hopefully jailed. This person is a danger to others. If there are children in the house where this happened they need to be examined. People who do this are dangerous ! I am sure this is not the first time this person has done this!

    The people who did this most probably will be identified by the ‘neighbors’ who called for help. Hope, no, demand, strictest punishment by law for them. No probation or fine, make them serve sentence. Go soft on them, things escalate, as we all are noticing.

    Any update on how this baby is doing. This is a baby and for someone to torture and rape an innocent puppy like this needs to be caught. How could someone not know this puppy was being abused. This monster needs to be caught because they will continue to abuse. Animals need more protection.

      Yes, there is an animal cruelty investigation underway. No details have been released. The rescue has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the abuser.

        Caleb passed away last week. This took place in Fulton County Georgia. You can contact the governor’s office at https://gov.georgia.gov/node/1376/done?sid=908631 (courtesy of another poster). I believe the authorities are investigating. There was a local news report about it. I would suggest following Hendricks & Co, http://www.hendricks&co.com, a great organization that helps animals across the country and partners with some great rescue organizations that are rescuing and savings hundreds of dogs and cats yearly whose lives were against all odds.

    OMG I am so glad I did not witness this poor creature being tossed over a fence. I would have taught these animals to pick on someone their own size. If anyone has info please tell authorities. Where did this happen? Who owns the house he was at? I hope he not only survives but thrives in a loving forever home that will appreciate this beautiful dog. It is sad that in this world animals are seen as mere property…even if they get this person the sentence/fine they get won’t even to begin to equate to the Justice that should be handed out to these monsters. Our leaders need to wake up. Studies show sociopaths and serial killers start out hurting innocent animals. These are dangerous people who need harsh sentencing.

    this is the sickest most evil I have ever seen! The person or persons who did this to that precious puppy should be put to death so they can’t get another animal and do the same again! They need to be found and identified. Makes me so sick !!!!

      Caleb died…..they couldn’t save him as his injury’s were so bad. On FB it is going around the awful news of his death…..I’m so saddened that this precious puppy didn’t make it. I sure hope the 5,000 dollar reward still stands to find and convict the sick monster of this crime….before they go out again and get another puppy or child and torture them!

    Sadly poor little Caleb has gone to puppy heaven. May this little angel rest in peace. He is in a better place. Now what needs to be done is to get stricter laws in every state to once and for all stop these criminals from continuing to do as they please with poor defenseless animals and continue getting away with it. People have to fight for these animals and stop looking the other way. So start contacting your local government representatives to get tough and put these criminals behind bars where they belong (since unfortunately we can’t do anything else to them). There is power in numbers and we must use our voices to speak up for these angels. I am sick and tired of hearing these tragic stories and donating money to different organizations that do nothing to stop this. Enough is enough!

    What progress has been made to identify and arrest the sick pig that did this? Has the witness been helpful? Has this been aired with local media? The local media should be FLOODED. SOMEONE would surely recognize the puppy. At least the puppy will not suffer ever again, his pain is gone. Now the FULL focus should be on finding the pig (I can’t even call them a person) that could do this. And may I add, a SICK, SICK pig. The poor puppy’s unimaginable pain and horrific suffering, that took his life should not be in vain. PLEASE, let’s make some noise in an effort to bring the pig to justice. As in a prior comment, this pig will torture again animals and humans, children. Does anyone know what county in the Atlanta area?

      I agree, we have to stand up for caleb where ever we live. This innocent puppy and all dogs do not deserve this. Caleb needs to become the poster dog for animal safety and we must all unite against this. Perp needs to be found, judged and his jury of peers, including dog lovers, allowed to administer his punishment until death befalls the scum.

      Caleb’s short life and his suffering should not be forgotten, Caleb a beautiful 3 month old puppy, probably never knew what it felt like to be a puppy, Caleb could not fight for his life anymore, but we can – Caleb with Jesus now, Caleb now knows love and will live forever, we need to find the monster responsible for Caleb’s suffering and death or there will be more and worse stories like Caleb’s. God help us.

        I totally agree …. All efforts should be exhausted to find the individual that did this to Caleb. This poor, helpless, innocent puppy’s death should NOT be in vain. There was a facebook site created for another abused dog in Georgia. I posted information on Caleb there yesterday. People need to get MAD, OUTRAGED !!!!!

    I agree with all the above- This person will eventually move from harming an innocent pup to a (GOD FORBID) a child! This kind of behavior is one of a sick perverted soul-less creature. Doesn’t even deserve a trial- jury- or jail.
    People like this should all be thrown on an inhabited island, let them all rape/abuse and or kill each other- they belong in caves with the wildest of animals living amongst them! COWARDS! To think- if caught, our tax money will be there to defend/provide living and meals? This is incredible! I don’t even want to say any more! This person is and will continue being nothing but a threat, not only to innocent animals- but to society…. the world has enough hatred already! This is plain EVIL!
