A 100-pound English Mastiff puppy from Seymour, Indiana has been pummeled with more than 60 pellets and bbs. The dog’s owner, Hayden Howard, 24, stated the incident happened over the weekend while her dog named Jackson was in the family’s backyard.

According to Fox News,  Hayden originally thought the marks on the dog were from insect bites, but on Saturday she took Jackson to the vet after realizing they were holes.

 “They were just kind of looking at all the little holes and stuff and the more they shaved him, they just kept finding more and more,” she said. “I was in shock, I didn’t even know what to think.”

Veterinarians shaved most of the dog’s coat and removed 27 pellets and bbs, however 20 more are still stuck in the dog’s body. Another 20 bounced off of Jackson after he was struck.

Police arrested the woman’s neighbor Tom Woodward for marijuana and methamphetamine charges and believe he may have been responsible for the attack on Jackson. A BB gun and pellets were found at his home; laboratory testing is currently being conducted to match them with what struck the pup, however there have been no charges for animal cruelty. Seymour Police Department Assistant Chief Craig Hayes is conducting the investigation.

Meanwhile Hayden reports that Jackson seems to be recovering. A reward of $500 has been offered to anyone with information that could help the investigation Call Seymour Police at (812) 522-1234.

Get well soon Jackson.

    This is why you NEVER, EVER leave your dog outside alone! What are people thinking? That stupid meth user needs to be shot with his own gun, and I know exactly where the fun and games needs to start, with a good ten blasts at POINT A , then take it up and / or down and all around…….

    • Crazy Aunt Jane says:

      that is ridiculous that a dog can’t be in it’s own yard! Not disagreeing with doing what you have to to keep them safe … but that’s absurd! What kind of world has this become????

    • Anne says:

      That guy needs exactly what he did done to him. Stupid druggie. I have an english Mastiff. They are the sweetest dog ever. No dog should be treated like that.

      • Michael J McManus Jr says:

    I’d like to get my hands on these little heartless bastards and give them the same treatment. There is definitely something wrong with with these kids today, 75% of them seem to be wired wrong.

    This is horrible, the POS that did this needs to be charged and put in jail for this! Unfortunately this is another example for why we can’t leave our pets outside unattended, even if they are in their own yards. There is some monster lurking just waiting to hurt them. I’m so sorry for this family and especially for Jackson, he certainly didn’t deserve this!

    I hope they get the proof they need to convict her neighbor and he gets punishment to the fullest extent of the law….I am so sick of people being mean to animals….until the laws get stronger people will continue to hurt them….,There are times like this, I wish it were an eye for an eye & a tooth for a tooth.

  5. Helen says:

    No charge for animal cruelty, even though this POS had bb guns and pellets in his home. This bastard was using the poor puppy has target practice. I would like to shoot real bullets up his ass.

  6. Olga Djurdjevic says:

    Evil must be stopped!!! To shoot an innocent dog 60 times is the act of an dehumanized shell of a being and whoever did this ! God knows and you shall reap what you sow!!! I’m sick of this evil world! Time to step up and fight the good fight!!! God bless those who save ????????????❤️

  7. Bunny Peters says:

    OMG: that useless disgusting POS neighbor deserves to be shot……… poor furbaby……….

    WHY isn’t the POS charged with felony animal cruelty??? The guns and bbs and pellets were in HIS possession?????

    I am not usually in favor of “vigilante justice”, but if this were my furbaby…… well, I would be in jail for homicide…… that POS neighbor would have to go……. ASAP……. already know he’s going to burn in Hell forever for his cruelty…… just want him to get there ASAP……… waste of resources to keep him alive……

    Tom Woodward in Seymore, Indiana. Loser, Methamphetamine tweaker.

    “”Vet removed 27 pellets and bbs, however another 20 are still stuck in the dog’s body. Another 20 bounced off of Jackson after he was struck.””

    WHY am I not surprised?!

    my wifes from indiana and she loves dogs i would take that pos and shoot him with 10000000 bbs then not feed the dog for a week and throw that pos in a cage with him pay backs a pitch

  10. Nancy Raymond says:

    Step up Assistant Chief Craig Hayes – This punk needs to be held responsible for his cruelty – I am sure you KNOW Tom Woodward is most likely guilty – CHARGE HIM – if he likes target shooting so much, nail his ass to a tree and use HIM as target practice. I am so sick and tired of these animal abusers getting little to no punishment for their cruelty.

  11. Mastiff Lover says:

    The piece of crap that did this needs the same… And eye for an eye… send that schmuck to New York…. my friends and I would love to get our hands on him.

  12. Douglas Hurley says:

    Once again, this needs to be met with a fire and vengeance of biblical proportion! I’m no zealot, but obviously our laws are seriously outdated if this atrocity isn’t enough in and of itself. And being twisted on Meth is NOT an excuse.

  13. Margaret says:

    I hope with all my heart that when they do discover who did do this to Jackson that they allow his owner to shoot that neighbor in the nuts 60 times so he knows how much he hurt that poor puppy

  14. Nancy says:

    Prayers for that poor dog to be able to have a full recovery from this awful thing that happened to him. His owner must be terrified to live next to this POS because he might just shoot her next. I agree with most of these people on FB…………get off your butt Assistant Police Chief and get this guy and if he doesn’t get lots of jail time I am sure someone else can do your job for you, and FREE!

  15. Frank Jenkins says:

    I think they should find who did this and do to them, what they have done. Complete idiot’s! Or one between the eyes!!!

    This Meth Head !!!! Needs to be castrated !!!!!! No question about it he is a determent to society!!!!! His genes need not be passed on….
