A Texas woman’s heart broke this week when she saw a stray dog who had been bound in tape and left to die alongside a road in Grayson County. According to KFOR News, Denise Stokes found the black mixed-breed dog on Wednesday – she described the cruel manner in which the dog had been secured:

 “I found her and saw her laying on the ground, and her back legs were still duct-taped. The tape around her mouth and front legs had already been removed, but she couldn’t walk because they were crisscrossed together, taped up.”

The dog, dubbed Sweetie, is a stray known to Stokes. In the not-too-distant past, the dog appeared to have delivered puppies and Stokes had brought her food. She opted not to take Sweetie home at the time because she hadn’t located her puppies.

But this week, after finding the cruel manner which Sweetie had been tied up, Stokes decided to take her home and keep her until a rescue group is able to take the homeless dog in. Stokes wants to ensure that Sweetie is fixed and given her shots and then, adopted to a loving home. She said, “I want her to have love, I want her to be happy, and I want her to make somebody happy, because I know she will.”

The Grayson County authorities are investigating the animal cruelty case.

    Please catch the monster who did this to her…..I can only imagine what might have been done to her puppies…..I pray a loving Home is found for her, she has been thru enough……please screen well when you find her a home….there are too many dog fighting rings that would love to get their hands on her…..please don’t let that happen

    Too many dog fighting rings that police in some areas know about and do nothing. Law enforcement in many parts of the South have police who are in on the dog fighting rings and do nothing about stopping. Must be people on the force willing to do the right thing with these thugs who cause such abuse and torture to these animals.

    Sweetie suffered horribly at the hands of a human maggot who I truly hope gets the severest form of street justice – may it slow, painful and lethal – they deserve it. HUGE THANK YOU to the kind lady who saved her from imminent death. Sweetie deserves a safe loving home and the rescue that takes her needs to ensure she is carefully adopted.

    “Sweetie” sounds like the perfect name – this dog looks very sweet. I’m so glad she was saved. Now, she needs to get spayed ASAP so she never has puppies again. Then, of course, she needs a loving home. I wonder where her puppies went. 🙁
