A severely injured puppy, found in a ditch in Riley Township, Ohio, had to be humanely euthanized. The five-month-old pit bull mix, dubbed Lily, was found by someone in late February. Lily’s injuries were so severe that she was unable to walk.

The Sandusky County Dog Kennel Facebook page alerted followers about the injured pup after she was discovered:

“From what we can tell, it looks like Lily‘ s front left foot is a club foot. It doesn’t appear that Lily has ever been able to walk using her back end because there is severe muscle atrophy from half way down her spine back. She does have feeling in her hind end and she tries desperately hard to wag her little tail. In addition, it looks like she has an abscess inside her mouth on the right upper side. She has a couple dings and small wounds here and there along with some urine burns from the urine being on her skin.”

An exam revealed just how badly the puppy was injured – according to the News-Messenger, Lily had a shattered tibia, a femur which was “broken off,” a jaw that was broken on both sides, and three broken digits on her left paw.

Multiple, painful surgeries would have been needed to repair all of the damage that Lily had suffered. Her veterinarian did not want to put her through more suffering and the difficult decision was made to humanely euthanize her on March 2. Sandusky County Dog Warden Kelly Askins told the News-Messenger that money for the ongoing veterinary care was not the issue – it was Lily’s quality of life.

Now, the authorities are hoping to find out who is behind the cruelty. A $1,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible. Tips should be called in to the Fremont Police at 419-332-6464.

Baby Lily says Hi!

    Do these rewards ever bring anyone forward to find out what happened to these poor abused animals? I see rewards offered time and time again but have really never seen any positive results. I do hope they find who dumped this poor pup in a ditch to be forgotten, what is happening to humanity?

    Someone knows who had this poor dog – another human maggot who deserves the harshest punishment, which will never happen with the lousy judicial system in place for animals – I truly hope there is a drive-by waiting to take this bastard out for good.

    Hopefully this baby was being held when sent across Rainbow Bridge, bless her sweet heart….I hope the monsters who had her are found and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Then burn in hell for eternity!

    I really hope they find who did this to this poor innocent baby. Whoever did this needs to have the same treatment given to them. Just HORRIBLE!!!!!

    My question is really it appears she was in good spirit she could have had a cart made for her to get around. Sad that some humans are so horrific that they abuse an innocent animal

    Another sick subhuman that needs to be tortured the way they did to the animals but worse. All I hope is for these useless coward bastards to have a short painful and miserable life. This low life who can watch this beautiful dog not being able to walk and her sufferings and it doesn’t bother them in the least. Rot and slowly die with cancer is my wish to all animal abusers. I totally hate them and wish them the worse.

    Rest in peace Lily and know that you were loved by those who didn’t even meet you. Now you are pain free to run the way you should have been all this time with no broken bones and living with a loving family.You will have that now for eternity.

    RIP Lily, you’re free know. I hope someone would break the legs of the POS who severely injured this sweet girl.

    Dogfighting and egregious animal abuse in rampant in black neighborhoods all over the Country. Sorry, but its the truth. Those people show no compassion, kindness, ability or willingness to nurture those smaller and weaker than themselves. I just don’t understand the culture.
