In West Texas, rescuers are heartsick over the depraved cruelty a tiny dog endured for days. A dog, weighing less than five pounds was found in the back of a bar; a grounding rod had been hammered through his tiny face and then into the ground.
“The photo shows you the depravity of humans and how disgusting people truly are,” Stacey Silverstein, the co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, who have stepped forward to help. “Makes me so angry, how and why would someone do this to an innocent life who has no way to defend himself.
For days, the little dog now named Roddy, waited; he could not move, he could not find shelter, eat or drink. Another small dog, quite possibly his brother, Rosco waited by his side until help finally arrived.
“I’m truly at a loss here and I don’t even know how to express my disgust and anger. I am literally sick to my stomach,” continued Stacey. “What has society come to? This is one of the worst case of abuse we have seen in our years in rescue.”
The rod has been removed from his face, which was complicated and horrific to watch, however he is free. What’s left is a huge, infected hole. Roddy is currently receiving emergency, life saving care at this time.
