A severely abused puppy, with a slashed neck, broken jaw and chipped teeth, was rescued from a closet after someone reported a case of possible animal cruelty to the authorities. According to WPXI News, his owner, identified as Lagentrious Watson, was arrested and he is facing a felony charge for the crime.

The puppy, an eight-month-old pit bull who has been dubbed “Wags,” is recuperating at the Humane Society of Lawrence County in Pennsylvania. Wags is appreciative of the kindness that he is finally being shown.  Lois Winter with the shelter said, “For all he went through, he’s so happy to get love.”

On September 2, the shelter introduced Wags to its Facebook followers:

We would like to formally introduce Wags to our community!

This sweet boy is doing extremely well despite all that he has endured. We had Wags treated immediately by the amazing staff at North Memorial Animal Hospital and his future is very bright!

Wags is not yet available for adoption because he is still healing – he is currently on pain medication and antibiotics and he is said to be “recovering beautifully!”

    I wish I could send the POS to Hell for torturing this poor puppy. Praying for Wags full recovery and hope he finds a wonderful family to call his own.

    A thug who abused this poor puppy because I am certain he did what he did to the pup because he was going to use or train him to fight pit bulls. The pup may have tried to bite him when he started breaking teeth and then broke his jaw and slashed his throat to make him stop. Finally put him in the closet to become even more afraid of him

    This scum needs to go to jail for years because that will eventually be his home even if given a few years in jail. Just hope his jail mates beat the S… out of him and break his jaw and destroy his teeth. This is what is walking our streets but our politicians, both sides, are complaining about Trump. Like him or not, they need to start working as Americans and protect our people as well as animals.

    Pos!! As I say, the only rehabilitation that will work for these type of sociopaths that pick on a innocent puppy/ animals is a single bullet to the head. They don’t deserve to walk our streets, breath our air or be allowed to get their cruel hands on any of the vulnerable, Period!!

    Blessings sent to you “Wags” I’m sorry you ended up in that sick monsters hands you’ve been incredibly let down and you never deserved any of it. Happy trails and tails you you angel!????????????

    Can we get a shot at him?? Would love to take a crack at such a deranged Cretan and show him what real pain is. Like to introduce him to a firing squad and be done with it. He doesn’t deserve to breath clean fresh air.

    How I wish I could give this POS a “slashed neck, broken jaw and chipped teeth”. There is no punishment that will suffice what this monster put this puppy through!

    Okay, so WPXI is a Pittsburgh TV station. I live in Pittsburgh. This person–I would not call him a man by any stretch of the imagination–obviously entered this world disadvantaged since he was given a name like Lagentrious. WTF!?! What is a Lagentrious? His mother must have had alphabet soup for lunch the day he was born. Things went downhill from there and now he is beating up on little puppies to show what a big man he is. People like this can’t be fixed. He will go through life beating on puppies and probably women, children and anyone else who will stand still long enough for him to get at them. There ought to be a place where we can send these people so all they have to pick on is each other. Maybe they would kill each other off. But this creep definitely needs to be put away and banned for life from ever even looking at another animal. Maybe some puppy lovers in jail will extract justice from his sorry self. One can hope…
