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.
