On Tuesday, devastating news was shared about the 18-month-old puppy who was recently discovered with his tongue cut out in South Carolina. In a Facebook post, Noah’s Arks Rescue broke the news about Briggs to followers:

Beautiful Briggs has crossed over The Rainbow Bridge. He got well enough to get out of the hospital and come to our Rehab Facility. He had learned to eat meatballs but was having a difficult time drinking water. We had to give him water through his PEG tube which was working great. He was happy, and his weight was remaining the same. This morning, he did not feel well and threw up all of his food from the previous day.

Though the pup was rushed to the Charleston Veterinary Referral Center, it was determined that he was septic and the infection from his mouth was in his bloodstream.

The rescue group wrote:

We did Life-Saving measures to get him stable, and when his body would not respond, I knew it was time to say good-bye to dear Briggs. Each of us are devastated by the loss of Briggs. We never saw this coming and knew he would overcome this. Briggs knew how much we Loved him. His Life was never about publicity or attention. It was about saving this beautiful boy and giving him back his Life.

Briggs had been found on November 19 in York, in the area of Madison Street and Lowry Row. He was injured and had been left tied to a fence – it is believed that he was used for dog-fighting. York officials are investigating this case of animal cruelty. Anyone with information about dog fighting or knows anything about the past history of this dog, whose name was Kemba at the time, is asked to contact the York County Sheriff’s Department at 803.628.3059.

Rest in peace Briggs.

    Briggs, You suffered so for so long. Innocent baby that everyone who heard fell in love with you. Now we want justice for you. We all need to contact law enforcement for justice–HEAVY DUTY JUSTICE. SOOOOON. York South Carolina police and others need to keep us informed and FBI needs to know as animal torture is on their agenda now. York can inform FBI. We need to be informed of discovery, prosecution and services provided by Charleston Vet and the group who helped. How do you know his name was Kemba before? Keep us posted please. We want some action.

    I want the monsters responsible for torturing and murdering Briggs caught and totally destroyed! This poor baby needs justice!

  5. Adrienne says:

    RIP Briggs. If anything comes out of this, I hope it is that the police find out who did this and arrest all that caused Briggs to go through this torture. Also, the same happens to all of them and they die a slow, painful death.

    These fucking dogfighters will never be found but since they live the life of cruelty and mistreatment may they get back exactly what they gave – this puppy was an innocent victim and I only wish that these bottom feeders are found decapitated and left in the gutter – they deserve no better.
