In a shocking case of animal cruelty, investigators discovered the emaciated body of a mother dog who had been shot twice in the head shortly after giving birth to a litter of puppies. The undernourished Dogue de Bordeaux was found in Old Eldon, County Durham, on December 3.


According to ITVNews, the heartless person thought to have pulled the trigger on the defenseless dog shot her twice from a high-powered rifle because the the first bullet didn’t kill the dog. Veterinarians, who performed the postmortem  examination of the dog, stated she suffered before she died and her body most likely later dumped as if she were trash. It is thought the dog’s owner didn’t want to take her to a veterinarian after giving birth. The dog died as a result of a fractured skull; two bullets were found close together in her head.



“I suspect this dog has had puppies, which have drained her fat reserves as she has not being fed sufficiently and perhaps partly contributed to her extremely emaciated state,” reported RSPCA Chief Inspector Mark Gent. “It appears, rather than take her to a vet, her owner or someone else has decided to shoot her. The first attempt hasn’t been successful, so they’ve shot her again.Vets believe she would not have died straight away and would have suffered a great deal. It’s extremely difficult to think about what this poor dog has gone through.”

The dog was not microchipped, and at this time there is no information as to her owner. Anyone who recognizes this dog is asked to contact the RSPCA at 0300 123 8018. Authorities are deeply concerned about the welfare of the puppies.

Rest in peace sweet dog.

    Kill the vile sub-human. No mercy. Take a shotgun and blow this lowlife’s face off. I would have no problem pulling the trigger! I hope the authorities remove the puppies from the home, so that they can get proper care. If this POS rather kill the mama dog than take her to the Vet, I’m sure the idiot would not give the medical attention the puppies will need.

    RIP mama dog, I’m sorry you can’t be with your babies.

    Keep showing the dogs picture someone will recognize her. Some idiot with idiot friends did this but maybe a neighbor will recognize her.

    Too much trouble to find the perp? It shouldn’t be hard. Put the tea and crumpets down, Guys, and arrest the heartless maniac!

    Anyone who knows who did this, or knows who owned this poor dog IS AS GUILTY AS THE ONE WHO MURDERED HER if you do not report this!!! May karma find the low life scum who did this and show them what TRUE PAIN feels like.

    This world needs to be cleared of people who do things like this. They should be found and shown no mercy. No feelings for anyone or thing, and should be locked away forever. Please police, people in the community, find the scum(s) who did this to this mama. and protect her babies.

    I doubt the bastard who did this will ever be found, if they are, authorities will do the usual – NOTHING! So if there is a God the maggot puke who treated this poor dog so horrifically will get their just rewards, a long, very painful, justly deserved death and no one cares. May they lie in excruciating pain in a fucking gutter and be ignored. They deserve no less.
