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.

    I don’t care if I get condemned by every bleeding heart who might have access to my comment, but I’m going to state how I feel and what my opinion is about animal abusers. They should not get a second chance; they should not have the freedom to breathe the same air as the animals they abuse because the animals are much more worthy of life than an abuser. In some instances – like this one – the abuser(s) should get instant death penalty. Or better yet, a slow one with a rod jammed into his face pinning him to the ground the same as he did to this innocent little dog.

      I agree with you. We are not punishing animal abusers. “Slap on the wrist” punishments are not effective. We need to send a message that abuse is not tolerated.

      Serial killers start with animal victims then “graduate” to people. There is a serial killer in training who did this awful act….. he needs to be found ASAP and locked up forever……

I hope a reward is large enough to bring someone forward to Turn the This Deranged Soul in … The Law Enforcement in Texas is really not vested in Animal Abuse !!! Sad to Say!!!

    Oh, sweet baby, I am just heartsick over what this poor baby endured. How can anybody do this to a tiny dog, or any dog. So cruel. This monster, if not caught will do it again. Please get well, beautiful baby, and find a loving home. Thank you for rescuing this baby.
