Shorty suffered; this little dog became an innocent victim of domestic violence on Monday when he was rescued by the Marion-Grant Humane Society in Marion, Indiana.

In retaliation against his girlfriend, the abuser beat Shorty because he urinated in the house. And as the dog cried out in pain from the abuse, his torturer put rubber bands around the dog’s mouth and continued to beat him until the defenseless pooch fell unconscious. The cruelty still wasn’t over. The abuser then stuffed Shorty into a trash bag and dumped him in the yard of his girlfriend. He texted the woman and told her he left a present for her at the location where she had been living.

There remains a strong correlation between animal abuse and family violence. Animal cruelty is one of the earliest precursors of an individual trying to seek domination and power over others. Shorty is currently in the care of a veterinarian hospital. He has suffered severe injuries and will be undergoing further MRI diagnostic testing to determine the extent of his injuries and the specialized care he is expected to need.

The Marion-Grant Humane Society has set up an account to help Shorty. If you would like to help, you can donate to Marion Grant County Humane Society, 505 S. Miller Avenue, Marion, Indiana or Riverside Community Federal Credit Union, 101 N. Washington Street, Marion, IN 46952.

A criminal investigation is ongoing and charges against the animal abuser are pending. His name has not been released at this time.

    I take it the “girlfriend” wasn’t living with this POS so why did he have the dog? I wouldn’t have left MY dog with this monster! Of course there is a correlation between domestic abuse and animal abuse and until the justice system gets “with it” and starts to recognize it, this sort of thing will continue to happen. I look forward to seeing that this POS has been charged with abuse, and DO please name him, he needs to be outed!

    THE BASTARD that did this to this beautiful little guy!!! Needs to “NO LONGER WALK THIS EARTH” someone needs to address the issue with a club or baseball bat to the ankles, calves, Knees, and hips!!! Let HIM FEEL THE PAIN AND SUFFERING that HE CAUSED A HARMLESS PUP! Before the LESSON IS OVER I bet he URNINATES HIMSELF A FEW TIMES and hopefully “Craps” himself… then let him wallow in it!!! Can’t say much for the “Female in this Abnormal Relationship for leaving her poor little pet when this happened!! She knew what this Putrid Piss Ant was like!!

    This POS needs tied to a tree and shot, one joint at a time. Why would she leave her Shorty with such as this knowing the likelihood that this could happen? I pray he makes a full recovery but the abuse will always be in his mind. Give him to someone that thinks more of his life than she did.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if hitmen or black ops did pro bono work for abused animals? Maybe Anonymous could track down evidence on animal abusers!

    obviously this guy has issues. one of them is cowardice and choosing to remain immature. He needs a pacifier and a diaper and to be put into a cell with animal lovers who are big and strong and angry at what he did.

They can’t fight someone their own size or another human because they really nothing but a PUNK!

    Marion Indiana needs to step up and print this maggot’s name and photo so everyone can see him for what he is – his picture should be posted in every shelter, rescue and vet’s office so all can be aware this bastard has NO right to ever be anywhere near an animal again. This hunk of pond scum should be stripped naked, tied down and beaten within an inch of his life, then taken out into the nearest landfill and left with the rest of the trash. He deserves no less. Animal cruelty has become an epidemic in this country and authorities need to stop treating it like a nothing crime. Shorty deserves justice.
