Husky unable to walk lived her life caged in chicken wire found in Redlands

In Southwest Miami-Dade, Florida  an injured white husky, unable to walk, was found on Sunday in a very small cage made of chicken wire. No one was sure how long the dog had been abandoned on the side of a dirt road, but her rescuers said the dog was extremely thirsty and very sweet.

 

Georgina Milhet had been on a horseback ride in the Redlands, with her nephews when she found the husky in the cage. When she opened the cage, the female dog crawled out, but a horrifying discovery was made at that same moment. The dog couldn’t walk and it appeared as if all of her legs had been broken at one time and had healed without having ever being medically repaired.

 

According to Redlands, FL The Abandoned DOGS Project, the dog’s elbows were full of lacerations where she used them to help her crawl and her nails had grown into the pads of her feet. Milhet’s nephew, Michael Gutierrez, carried the husky on horseback back to their ranch and called a rescue group for help.

The husky, now named Lucky, was taken to GTS Husky Rescue in Jupiter, where she will receive the help she needs. Veterinarians report this as one of the worst cases of animal abuse they have ever seen. Her legs and feet grew like that because she had been confined to the small cage for an extended period of time; likely all of her life. A chicken cage, where she was unable to move, was her personal prison.

Medical tests and X-rays reveal the dog has an infection, liver issues and punctures all over her body. She will need surgery in the future.

“Lucky has been see by our veterinary specialists and has puncture wounds covering her entire body and has been believed to have kept in a cage her entire life forcing her arms and legs to become deformed.

She is need of serious help and needs your donations and support on her road to recovery,” posted GTS Husky Rescue.

Online donations for the dog’s care can be made at GTS Husky Rescue’s website.

    I firmly believe anyone that abuses or is cruel to any animal should be hogtied, gagged and dumped in a landfill with the rest of the trash. They deserve no less. Whoever did this to this poor dog is a freaking hunk of sewer sludge and should be treated as such. I hope that their life ends with an encounter with an 18 wheeler – splattered all over the road.

    YOU KNOW: for the person /people who brutally tortured and then abandoned this beautiful girl, a bullet would be a waste of lead!!! Although we as a “Civilized??? Nation” can’t stoop this low, when caught this Demonic Bastard/Bitch SHOULD BE HAULED TO THE EVERGLADES , STRIPPED AND HONEY POURED ON THEM, BOUND AND TOSSED WHERE THE REPTILES GATHER… I am totally TAKEN BACK as to the Depth of this Crime and can’t help but wonder WHY? I wish some very wealthy benefactor would put up about a $25,000 reward to the capture of this Evil Being!! Yet this girl is so sweet and loving and grateful… it makes you cry from the remorse and suffering she endured ONLY to be so ACCEPTING of HUMAN”S.

    The same thing needs to be done to the POS that abused this poor dog! Break their arms, legs and whatever else can be broken and lock them in a cage where they can’t move! Pour some honey over them and let the fire ants feast! Thank goodness to the people out riding their horses or this girl might not have been found!

    Some sadistic psycho is loose out there and don’t think he/she they won’t do this again. Next time it could be a toddler. They clearly lack empathy, a heart or soul. Just an evil torture machine with no conscience. This should be priority. Add to that this dog deserves some justice!!!!!! Its about time. Crack down on the sick perverts committing these unspeakable acts of cruelty and torture!!!!! We , the public have done everything we can, screamed, cursed, cried, sometimes loose hope. Make it right!!!!! Set an example. Look at this precious gift from GOD. LOOK WHAT SOME SICK DEMENTED POS DID TO HER!!!!!!!!!! FIND THEM. FIND THEM!!!!!!!!!# PROSECUTE TO THE MAXIMUM!!!!!!!! NO PROBATION. NEVER!!!!!!!! LOOK AT HER!!!!!! WATCH WHAT HER LIFECWILL BE LIKE FOREVER WHILE “THEY” RUN AROUND CAREFREE LOOKING FOR MORE INNOCENTS TO TORTURE!!!!! JUSTICE FOR LUCY!!!!!!!!!!

      Debbie, I couldn’t have said it better, pray they find the EVIL BARBARIC BASTARD and punish him to the fullest extent of the law. Unfortunately, being humane and abiding by the law means this evil bastard can’t be confined and tortured the way he did lovely “LUCKY”… How the hell anyone that does this INSANE INHUMANE ACT, can live with themselves is beyond me. They obviously have an evil soul and no conscious at all! I donated and shared and will continue to pray for “LUCKY” and all the innocent animals that we do not know about that are going through the same neglect and torture in this cruel, evil world. Praying that “LUCKY” get’s well and is able to enjoy the remainder of her precious life. 🙂

    Please find the person that did this to this poor dog. Give me their name and address and I will travel there to confront this person, put them in the trunk of my car, drive them out a country road to a secluded area, and torture them before putting a bullet between their eyes.

    This is heartbreaking. The cruelty of some humans knows no bounds BUT it is only out weighed by the compassion and generosity of the angels in Rescue. May God bless them greatly for their kindness and caring for his helpless creatures. That’s why I donated to help them in my own small way.
