The Saddest Puppy in DFW Gets 24/7 Attention by Vets and Media

Categories: Crime

Justice, the badly burned puppy, rests after a truly terrible week.
Curled into a C-shape on a metal exam table at City Vet in Oak Lawn today, the tired puppy rested soundly, his brown and white coat patched with scabs from the burns he suffered at the hands of people who have not yet been arrested. For the moment, he was completely unfazed by the onslaught of reporters who swirled through the exam room as though it had a revolving door, checking out the sight that was the perfectly heart-wrenching mixture of tragic and adorable.

Jim Wenger, president of DFW Rescue Me, the nonprofit that arranged the puppy's care, said that it's a good sign that Justice, a 4-month-old lab-terrier, is able to sleep and that he's doing remarkably well. If anything in this world generates a circus-like outpouring of attention, it's an adorable injured animal, especially when those who inflicted the pain remain unidentified and unpunished, and the little puppy still needs a home.

"It's just in dogs naturally to trust people. That's part of what makes this so awful," Wenger said.

Justice was found behind an air conditioning unit at a Pleasant Grove apartment complex Tuesday night. "Witnesses described seeing a group of teen boys trying to strangle Justice with a rope before setting him on fire. A girl who saw what was happening intervened, using a T-shirt to put out the fire, police said," according to Channel 8. She was quick enough to save the dog's life, but not quick enough to prevent the burn marks that cover most of its body.

Wenger got the call shortly thereafter and drove immediately to Pleasant Grove, picked up the puppy and brought it for emergency treatment. Since then, Wenger says the dog has had "around the clock" medical care for the past five days, mostly consisting of IV antibiotics, pain medication and plasma. The dog was also "covered" in ticks, Wenger says, which probably indicated that he was "at least kept outside and probably ignored." He said the dog likely will move in with people who have agreed to foster him in two weeks and will be adopted after that.

This is the third case of a dog being burned that Wenger has seen in the last few years, he says. Donations to help DFW Rescue Me fund medical care for Justice and help other adorable animals in trouble can be made on the DFW Rescue Me website. Those interested in adopting Justice can also reach out through the website.

Tim, excellent idea of donating $20 to the organization instead of reading all the crap below your obvious solution!

The girl who rescued him deserves some recognition as well.  Many people would have just passed by.

I was glad to read this morning that the SPCA has put up a reward to find these punks.

This is horrible, but as a whole, society does not do much better.  Cattle have their horns burned off in the dairy industry and and are abused for grins in rodeos.  Over a million mink are electrocuted in this country annually after spending their lives in a tiny cage.  Millions of dogs and cats are crammed into shelters, before being put down because of over-breeding.  Fish have hooks stuck in their mouths before being dragged ashore and skinned alive. And on and on.  Go vegan and support PETA.

If/when they catch the perps, I want to be on that jury.  Real bad.  Even though I'm unemployed, and I suspect I can't collect unemployment if I have jury duty.

it really just represents a pattern of behavior in which violence against someone or something weaker is tolerated or even justified. whether it's a human or an animal is really just about access to the victim. when people talk about dog lovers overlooking human suffering to save animals, they ignore the reality that they are not mutually exclusive end goals.

I think when I "cried uncle," that was tantamount to admitting I was wrong. Now that you have set me straight, and Donovan has helpfully cut and pasted material from Stormfront, I have the facts and will no longer be wrong on this topic. You will still be disfigured by blind hatred.

Now go get you a nice Aryan female, it'll take your mind off black men for awhile. Until one smiles at her, I guess.

Okay, I cry uncle. Black serial killers is a subject you've obviously researched exhaustively. Obsessively, even.

The scales have fallen from my eyes. I now have the same fear of black men that you have, creepy erotic undertones and all.

Want me to keep on listing more black serial killers, naive white-guilt libtard?

You are probably so naive and ignorant of reality that you have never even heard of the "Zebra Killings".

Chester Dewayne Turner, you naive white guilt libtard.

And I never claimed the dog-torturers are black. I said they are "people of color". They are almost assuredly Mexicans.

I'm neither naive, suffering from white guilt, nor a thoroughgoing liberal. What I am is glad I'm not you. It can't be much fun carrying all that hate around, day in, day out.

Of course, in my comment upthread, I made the assumption that they are male. I'll just hand that one to you for free.

Name a single black serial killer besides the Beltway Snipers. Name a single black school shooter. And, more importantly, show me where in this blog post, the linked article or the accompanying video these degenerates were identified as black. (Pleasant Grove is not an all-black neighborhood.) Even if they turn out to be, your assumption speaks volumes about what kind of person you are.

You are probably too bigoted to understand what that means, though.

Coral Watts

Total BS. The only reason that there are "more" white serial killers are because there are far more whites in the USA (75% white) than there are blacks (12%).

You are probably too dumb to understand what that means, though.

Daniel
Daniel

Well, at least if they're black, my comment about being future serial killers was probably off-base. Serial killers are almost always white.
