Young dog doused in chemicals found hiding in a garden

In Metairie, Louisiana, a small dog doused in chemicals in Saint Rose and left for dead, was discovered hiding in a garden by a local resident. The woman called the Metairie Humane Society for help.

According to the organization’s Facebook page, the little pup named “Baby Boy” continues to fight for his life although he is showing definite improvement in his condition:

“This sweet baby was found in my Brother in law’s garden almost lifeless, He was saved by the wonderful volunteers at Metairie Humane Shelter where he is being treated for chemical burns to most of his body and has a long road to recovery.”

Jamie Hirstius, who works at the shelter, responded to the call and found Baby Boy curled up in the garden just as if he had given up on life. WdsuNews reports the dog’s body had been severely burned by the chemicals, and he is currently receiving hydrotherapy, medicated baths and pain control.

It is not known who is responsible for this heinous deed.  The dog wore no identification and was not microchipped. Anyone who recognizes this little guy is asked to contact the shelter at 504.451.2822. Arch Animal Hospital is caring for Baby Boy. Donations for his recovery can be made by calling 504.834.0906.

A video can be seen here. Fortunately, Baby Boy is responding and just days ago, he started to walk again. Get well soon little one. Everyone is cheering for your recovery.

    People are getting more disgusting by the minute, who does this to a poor little dog? I hope they find the POS and they are prosecuted but history is proving that this will not likely happen. Prayers for Baby Boy, hopefully you will have a happy life in a loving home after your heal.

    Trump’s sentiments are misguided: It’s not drug dealers who should be put to death*, it’s ANIMAL ABUSERS LIKE THIS!

      Totally agree. But remember, you’re also talking about someone who thinks “owning pets is low class”.

      Considering that people like Paul Mellon, Senator John Warner, the Kennedys, and the British royal family, not to mention the Father of our country, George Washington, all owned pets, and trump is the most tasteless and low class person ever to inhabit the White House despite all the money he CLAIMS to have, saying something so stupid takes a lot of nerve, not to mention ignorance (but what else would be new?). Money doesn’t buy class any more than it does brains.

      O Stephen Phillips I could not agree with you more – it is the scum of the earth animal abusers who should be sitting on death row awaiting their demise. Someone knows who this poor little dog belonged to and should step up and turn them in – not that the crap judicial system will do much of anything to them – I truly hope there is a drive-by waiting for the maggot puke who did this.

    The level of cruelty to animals seems to be rapidly escalating, and it will continue to do so, unless laws protecting animals are more stringent and enforced. If it was up to me, I would douse the dirt bag with acid, so he/she can experience the same pain this poor pup did.

    YES, Animal abusers MUST be punished severely, They MUST be sought out, Prosecuted and mandatory long term sentences MUST be imposed. It is the only way to stop these monsters. AND NO I don’t give a tinker’s cuss if they are abused or sick or sorry, or misunderstood or whatever excuse they come up with, let them get it in Jail!
