How can it be? The dog who miraculously survived unimaginable abuse, including being subjected to drugs and being beaten with a sledge-hammer, is gone. His name was Country and he was rescued from his abusive family in November.
Recently, an effort was made to find a loving new home for the abuse survivor. The animal control agency in Cedar Park, Texas, and the Final Frontier Rescue Project, were hoping to find a patient person who would be willing to help Country as he worked to get through his emotional trauma…but Country’s happily-ever-after will never be.
This week, the rescue group broke the tragic news of Country’s passing to Facebook followers:
We are beyond heartbroken to give this final update on Country…
He took a turn for the worse today, and in the presence of his friends, he crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
We are saddened beyond belief and angry at the people who where supposed to love and protect him. Instead, they broke him. We tried our best to join him with his unbroken spirit and find him a beautiful, loving home…but the damage was done.
Country is the reason we step up and become their voice. In this case, we didn’t have the time to make his dreams come true.
Please watch out for pets who are in harm’s way. If you see a cat or dog who is being abused, please reach out to your local animal control agency and make a report. Be the voice for those who have none.
Rest in peace Country.
