Tragic update to paralyzed puppy found in Brooklyn dumpster

What happened to a paralyzed puppy, discovered thrown away in a trash bag in a Brooklyn housing project dumpster, is currently under investigation by New York Police Department detectives. Few details have been shared, but when the photo of the young dog, dubbed Hope, was posted on the Facebook page of Kristina Sembler  late last week, animal advocates immediately became involved hoping to help with the tragic situation.

Sadly, a future that should have been a guarantee for an adorable puppy just starting out in life, was not to be.

“I’m going to keep my emotions out of it, and just report the status of Hope’s condition. Hope’s back was broken and she had to be humanly euthanized over the weekend,” posted Kristina. “I’m touched by the adoption offers, love, outrage, and care that was shown by people following the story, and by the people that were directly impacted.

Hope’s case is still an ongoing investigation- the person believed to have done this will be held responsible.”

Rest in peace Hope. We are so sorry you were so mistreated.

    Find the bastard that did this to Hope and do the exact same thing to them and let them rot. Show no mercy and no lawyer should try to defend this scum. Please keep us informed as to what if any arrests are made. Maybe something will show up in the plastic bag which would give us a clue as to who did this. RIP Hope, we loved you and you received the love you so deserved at the end.

    RIP Hope, you’re free and now you can run. This puppy is so young, I was wondering if surgery can mend her broken back and eventually with much physical therapy walk again. I know some dogs with fractured spine did recover after surgery and were able to walk.

    I am FERVENTLY HOPING that the “sadistic piece of crap, the lowlife, the vermin, the degenerate, the scum of the earth” (this is my polite vocabulary) that did this to Hope suffers the most debilitating, painful disease known to mankind. May this person be struck down “sooner rather than later”……

    R.I.P. Hope. I’m so sorry that your life was so short and so filled with pain. I hope the monster who hurt you and then threw you away like trash has a miserable life and then rots in Hell for eternity what what was done to you. Sometimes I don’t want to be part of the human race. Run free with the Angels sweet baby girl. You are now safe never to be hurt again.

    Sorry, I don’t believe for one minute the cops will do much to find this hunk of horse manure and if by some miracle they did, an idiot judge would give them the usual slap on the hand – SO I so truly hope that there is some huge dose of street justice awaiting the hunk of diarrhea who did this to Hope. This is a time where vigilante justice is totally justified. Anyone who abuses an innocent defenseless animal deserves it.

    THERE ARE VERY LITTLE WORDS FOR ME TO SAY ABOUT THIS HORRIFIC AND DISGUSTING ABUSE THIS PUPPY HAD TAKEN. ALL I CAN SAY IS I WOULD LOVE TO BREAK OVER BONE IN THIS BASTARD’S BODY SO THEY WOULD BE PARALYZED AND THEN THEY WILL ROT INTERNALLY BEING EATEN AWAY WITH CANCER. ALL ANIMAL ABUSERS ARE LOW LIFE POS COWARDS WHO NEED TO BE GIVEN THE SAME ABUSE. I WOULD STRANGLE THIS USELESS SUBHUMAN.
