A dog dragged behind a bike, and then subsequently beaten with the bike until he collapsed and became unconscious has been rescued and will never suffer again. On Wednesday evening, the Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue were called to help the shepherd mix now named Justice.
“We received a call about this poor dog that witnesses said had been being dragged behind a bike by a cord until he lost consciousness. After the dog lost consciousness the perpetrator then stopped the bike and began beating the dog with the bike. Thankfully some kind residents intervened and saved the dog from his abuser and then called us. This dog is now in critical condition and we are rushing him to a Veterinary hospital for emergency care.”
Volunteers jumped in to help providing Justice with life saving emergency care.
“He is currently receiving medical care at Center Line Veterinary Hospital. He has hair loss all over his back from being dragged and he also appears to have a bullet lodged in his side. He is an older boy around 7 or 8. He has been given pain meds and he is on fluids,” the organization posted on their Facebook page shortly after Justice’s rescue.
By Thursday morning, Justice has already shown marked improvement. He has no broken bones. His latest photos tells this boy’s story.
The rescue organization has met with authorities. There is an active investigation and an arrest is hoped to be made soon.
