Carol Nix says she saw the whole thing happen from the door of her front porch. Zuri, a friendly, three-month-old terrier mix she'd given a drink to a few hours before, wandered down Oakview Drive when three teenagers appeared, two boys and a girl. One of the boys grabbed a tree branch and took a swing at the seven-pound puppy.

The blow connected, rupturing the dog's left eye and knocking out several teeth.

"I think this kid enjoyed doing it. He never did look at that dog with remorse. Never looked at that dog like he was sorry," Nix told CBS 11.

Nix called police, who canvassed the neighborhood but failed to locate the teens.

Rocky Ridge Refuge, an Arkansas rescue group, has raised nearly $3,000 to offer as a reward for information leading to the attacker's capture, but their prospects seem bleak. Absent a better description of the teens tip or a tip about their identity, the investigation is at a dead-end. Hence the cash reward.

I wish the DMN would go down there and address this "drop in the bucket" (i.e., rampant and perverted animal cruelty). I am getting so tired of hearing these kinds of disgusting reports. Until this stuff stops happening, what's the use in even caring what happens in the "Southern Sector". Bulldoze it all and turn it all into a freaking sailboat marina, golf course, bike trail, and community herb garden or something. Who really cares anymore?

His parents and the teen need to be punished. Parents need to stop violent behaviors at It's early stage n that life matters for every thing.

I'm not impressed with Ms. Carol Nix.    Believe me if I had witnessed this I'd have chased after those kids in a NY minute.     I just don't get it.    How do you witness this and not able to find the teenagers?????

Oh poor thing! Man, if they find these kids let society enact some justice. I mean really. Tie these kids on a leash to a lamp post. Leave a tree branch. Put a sign stating what they did and a picture of the dog. Leave them for 24 hours. Let society take a whack at them! THAT would be justice!

What a moron! Interesting how some did this kind of crap when they are young....the select sick few who as adults proudly claim they did this too. Does this make you proud of yourself? Guess that beats making good grades or doing the right thing growing up. Joseph out of curiosity why did you do this kind of thing and do you have regrets?

Someone should beat "Carol Nix" with a stick for "watching the whole thing happen from the door of her front porch"

I kind of wish you hadn't included the photo but, at the same time, it does serve most effectively to stir emotion and indignation -- which sometimes needs a jump start.

They are not "brats". They are vile, putrid, heartless, disgusting, worthless thugs. They deserve harsh punishment. I'm afraid of what I might do if I witnessed this. I would pray for control not to pull a 9mm. Sorry ass punks.

@JustSaying You'll be pleased to know I've just managed to get them to turn it off. From now on, hopefully, not a single FB comment will cross over. I'm waiting for you all to organize a party in my honor.
