Heartbreaking: Dog repeatedly bred by dope addicts to pay for drugs

No one knows how long Ethel lived in the remote section of a trash filled yard in south Texas. She had been tethered with a thick chain and repeatedly bred so that her dope addict owners could sell her puppies for drugs. Too often starved and abused, it made no difference to Ethel’s owners – her puppies were worth money, and the sooner they were separated from their mother, the sooner their dog could be bred again.

Even though there had been multiple complaints about the dog’s emaciated body and Animal Control had been summoned for a welfare check several times, the conditions never seemed to be egregious enough for Ethel to be taken away from the crack house where she lived and the tiny circle where her chain reached and her puppies nursed. At times Ethel would cry out – hoping someone would hear and help her.

It was weeks before rescuers could finally get Ethel and her puppies away from their abusive environment; no one would give up. Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC helped to formulate the plans and was ready to provide the dogs with the medical and emotional care they would all need.

 “…one day, there was a brief moment which allowed our team to move in and rescue Ethel and her most recent litter of puppies. The photos show Ethel and her puppies at the time of rescue. This family is safe now, and under our care. The rescue took weeks, but we were successful in removing the dogs from the nightmare they were all living every day.”

    Society is better off if these worthless drug addicts overdose. Thank you Rescue Dogs Rock for saving this mama dog and her pups from a life of pain and misery.

    GOSH, That is such a sad life for this poor pup.i hope these low life idiots get over dose on their drugs and have a life of misery. Sending prayers for this pup and her babies to have a life of care and love.

    Thank you for saving Ethel and her pups. It broke my heart to read how Ethel would cry out, hoping someone would hear her and then help her.

    Finally they save Ethel, but why was she over looked time and time again? We want people to report abuse but when they do, seemingly, they were ignored! It takes a rescue from NYC to get them to safely, says a lot for Texas! Thank you again Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, again you have stepped up for the welfare of an abused dog!

    Those dopers will just get another. Courts have got to step in. Police have got to step in. They will move but need tracking. It will only get worse if they do not get sentenced and restricted. Thank goodness Rescue Dogs Rock was there. Mom and pups were sure to die or be fed to pibble rings.

    WTF!!!! Is wrong with those idiots??? They were there several times and could have taken that poor baby!!!! But NO they said everything was ok!!!! How long must an innocent animal suffer before something gets done??? I hope those assholes get charged and go to PRISON!!!

    Thank God they are safe. But, like mentioned above, they will get another dog and neglect it as they did with this sad mama.

    These things should be barred from obtaining any animals. The police need to get involved with this case before these druggies get another dog and continue this abuse to fund their drug filled lives. Put them away forever. This story needs to be told and people need to understand what other crazies do to defenseless animals. Look at the face of that mother dog. Loyal to humans yet betrayed by them.

    People like this should all be put on an island, away from other people and animals, and shot if they leave said island. There is no getting through to their sick brains and they certainly won’t listen. They do not need to be around decent people. They need banned FOR LIFE from ever having another animal around. These POS need to be tracked so they don’t acquire ANOTHER dog and set up camp again. If they do it once, they WILL DO IT AGAIN.

    Of course Texas once again proves its total lack of care or compassion for animals in horrific situations – it is ignored by those who know there is an animal in desperate need of help – and once again, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC is the only rescue to come through for Ethel and her puppies. No rescues in Texas?? These frigging junkies ALL need an overdose of Fentanyl – useless sacks of human trash.

    Why is it these drug addicts have not been arrested just for buying and selling drugs? Last time I checked that WAS illegal. Come on Texas get some smarts!
