In the Huntingdon Valley area of Pennsylvania, a dog was so abused and repeatedly beaten, he tried to defend himself. Instead his owner stabbed the dog in the face and then badly injured, thrown into a cage at the closest animal shelter.
And this is Hugo’s story. According to the Philly Bully Team Rescue, this dog’s story has become all too common. On their Facebook page, we learn more about a dog who deserved better:
“According to police reports, Hugo’s piece of sh** owner was beating him. Hugo defended himself, which caused the owner to start stabbing Hugo in the face. Hugo’s owner has the luxury of being in a hospital bed right now, while Hugo lays in a cold, damp loud kennel. He is a senior and does not deserve to die like this…”
Fortunately Hugo will be getting a new chance in life. The Philly Bully Team has committed to the dog’s rescue. On Monday, he will be transferred to the World of Animals at Bethayres where he will be assessed and his injuries addressed. After that, he will be heading to foster care. If only all dogs in similar circumstances could be so lucky.
