Graphic: Intentional act of abuse as dog nearly decapitated by wire collar

In Fulton, Georgia, an eight-month-old nearly decapitated puppy was surrendered to the shelter on Friday with a wire collar so embedded into the dog’s neck, veterinarians weren’t even sure he would survive surgery. One can only imagine the young dog’s unimaginable suffering as the metal dug deeper and deeper into his flesh.

According to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, the torture of the dog had been intentional. Everyday the owner watched, as the puppy named Roger, slowly and painfully almost strangled in a torturous death. Had it not been for a Good Samaritan who reported the puppy’s condition to Animal Control, Roger’s life would have soon ended. Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the rescue organization, updated advocates as the critically injured puppy was rushed to their partner veterinarian on Friday night for emergency surgery:

“This is the worst embedded collar we have ever experienced at our rescue to date 
Most disturbing is that Roger was OWNED !!!!
THIS ACT WAS INTENTIONAL!
The owner watched day after day as the collar around Rogers neck got tighter and tighter ,choking him to near death
By the grace of God, Animal Control was informed of the cruelty being inflicted upon Roger and removed Roger and his mother from the property. We have also rescued his Mom, and we will post her separately.”

Animal cruelty charges are being filed against the owner. Roger’s recovery will take months. To help with this puppy’s expenses, donations can be made via  rescuedogsrocknyc.org.  PAYPAL: Donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org.

    Who are these psychopaths living among us? So many acts being committed that words don’t adequately describe the horror of them.A true miracle that sweet Roger and his mom got away from these monsters.I honestly don’t have an answer for this.I guarantee that maximum penalties there are squat.After all is said and done then you are back to having these “things” living in society.The wait then begins for their next atrocity on a feeling sentient being.

    Stricter laws and punishment equal to what this “owner” did to this animal. Years in jail for someone like this. Let others know where they will end up if they decide to treat any animal this way.

    Made me sick in stomach and wonder how this sweetie ever survived…i keep repeating something s gotta be done…severe punishment…register for life, cant own, hefty fines, reimburse shelter, vet, etc. Perfect punishment is to do the same thing to abuser and make sure the public is aware

    These bastards should be identified by name, address, and offense and published the way many newspapers identify people who get DUI’s and other crimes. I too want to know WHO did this and where they live.

    Take that chicken wire. Wrap it tight around the body. Get some quick Crete. Let it set up a few days. Toss it down a gully into a creek. Problem solved. Justice delivered. Psychopath restrained! Lives saved.
