    They’ll probably be caught, because Colorado and it’s great citizens usually will NOT tolerate animal abuse on ANY level from ANYONE. God bless THEM for that and I pray God inspires and give courage to whomever KNOWS about this to stand up for truth and accountability.

    Mmmm the dog looks alert to me. Why doesn’t it say what his injuries were? Or was it the shelter didn’t have the money.

    OMG!!! That precious little treasure…… looks like a small terrier puppy, that precious little face……. I can’t understand how or why someone would abandon this precious little treasure……

    I would have taken my furbaby to an emergency veterinarian and then made decisions on what to do based on the veterinarian’s advice…….

    Was this precious little treasure physically abused??? Was there a horrible accident (like hit by car)???

    In any case, if I am to lose my furbaby, I will hold them and love them and tell them how much they are loved and treasured and that they will be missed….. NEVER would I not be there for them……..
