A four-month-old beagle puppy was tied to a pole and beaten in the Bronx on Monday. According to the rescue organization that stepped up when Animal Care Centers of New York City called to help, the adorable little pooch suffered “severe injuries.”
On Monday, the Looking Glass Rescue, posted the puppy’s photo and shocking details as supplied by the shelter.
” We have this super cute and sad puppy that we are hoping to get out of here as soon as possible, possibly from trauma. The police officers who brought him said that someone called and said they witnessed the dog being beat and ties(sic) to a pole. Unfortunately, there is not enough evidence to pursue a cruelty investigation.”

The puppy also has cuts and wounds on her head, neck and shoulders.
