There is an update on Lady, the puppy at the heart of the Texarkana, Texas, dog abuse case. The pit bull pup, who was beaten in a graphic video which was posted on social media, has a broken leg but she is recovering “nicely.”

On Tuesday, the Texarkana Police Department announced that Lady “has been ordered seized pending the outcome of a court hearing later this month.” The Department added:

“Texarkana Texas Municipal Court Judge Sherry Jackson ordered the dog seized today and set a court hearing on November 28 at 11:00 a.m. at the Bi-State Criminal Justice Center. Judge Jackson will decide whether or not it is in the best interest of the dog to be permanently removed from the owner’s care.”

    Lady was hurt while a jerk was laughing and filming. That monster needs arrested as well. Texas comes through again on the list of abuse to animals. Holloway will be found. He probably left the state. Do hope the judge takes Lady away from owners. Poor judgement to put Lady in the hands of Holloway. Lady will heal but the cruelty will continue.

    I hope Lady is not returned to her owner, so that she can be adopted out to a stable loving family. If it was the owner’s friend who tortured and abused Lady, it doesn’t say much about the owner’s judgement. Generally, a person would befriend people with similar interest and values.

    O come on Judge Jackson, to even THINK about returning Lady to this hunk of maggot puke is a no brainer – the only thing LeGus Holloway deserves is a noose.

    THE BEST INTEREST FOR THE PUPPY IS NOT IN THE OWNER’S CARE. THIS LOW LIFE COWARD POS NEEDS HIS ASS KICKED ENOUGH SO HE CAN SLOWLY ROT AND DIE. HE IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY THE SAME BULLSHIT.
