An elderly couple in California is mourning the unexpected loss of their senior dog, who was brutally beaten during a home invasion last week. As reported by ABC 7 News, someone entered the Lawson’s home in Yorba Linda, and attacked their 13-year-old toy poodle, Fifi.

Whoever broke into the house stole cash and a gun, and ransacked the home – but nothing devastated 91-year-old George, and 77-year-old Peggy, as much as the attack on their innocent dog, who used to do work as a therapy dog. Peggy told the news agency about Fifi’s condition after the attack, explaining that she was,  “Hugging her and kissing her, she tried to kiss me back and whined, and I said I won’t put her through one more minute of pain.”

Fifi had to be humanely euthanized because of severe injuries, including a punctured lung and multiple broken ribs.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the crime – anyone with information is asked to call the authorities. Peggy has expressed her disgust with whoever is responsible, “Scum of the earth, that’s all I can say. If they catch them, don’t let me near them.”

    This poor baby! Boy I would like to get my hands on those rotten pieces of filth. I hope they catch them and jail them-I’ll pay to have some crooks give them a suitable punishment!

    So these things are such ‘men’ that they had to murder a TOY poodle? Someone who couldn’t hurt anyone? Whoever did this is a monster, and should be put down as such.

    “Scum of the earth” is much too nice for these POS’s to be called. I doubt this poor dog could have been doing anything that deserved to be beaten for. The POS’s that broke into this home just beat this poor dog because they could! I hope they are caught and punished to the maximum, If Ms Peggy wants at ’em, I will be happy to help!

    How is an elderly dog going to hurt someone! I hope they catch the POS responsible and beat him to death just like they did to poor Fifi! Rest in peace little one, you didn’t deserve what happened to you!

    Nothing but a low life, coward, scumbag POS to brutally beat an animal. I wish nothing but the worse for this low life scum of the earth asshole who can’t take on anyone their own size and beat an innocent dog. God I hope this punk ass shit gets a terminal disease now and slowly rot in pain.

    To see Fifi’s innocent face makes me want to cry for what she went through and the loss her parents must be feeling. If nothing else the police must make this a priority and catch the person(s) who did this and have the same done to them by the dog loving inmates and police look the other way. Live in hell for eternity.

    .The Bastards that brutalized this harmless dog DESERVE to Be Emasculated !!!!! Right on the spot and made to watch it happen to each and every one involved….

    Whoever did this cruel act is PURE EVIL……. I truly believe that anyone who is deliberately cruel to others (people or animals) will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty…..

    Precious little treasure Fifi, your life was stolen from you (& your life mattered). You absolutely did NOT deserve to be harmed so cruelly…… I am absolutely heartbroken for your trauma & death.

    Makes me sick inside to think of this precious furbaby suffering and crying for help in vain…… My condolences to the family. No one should have to find their furbaby like this……

    Precious little treasure Fifi, please look for MacKitty in Heaven and he will welcome you into his snuggle buddies group. You can RIP amongst his loving friends……..
