9/19/13- Appeal for help in fatal 'Puppy Doe' dog torture case.BOSTON — The national nonprofit Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) is offering a $2,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator(s) who savagely tortured a pit Bull puppy over the course of several months. The female puppy, who police officers named “Puppy Doe,” was found abandoned in the woods in Quincy, Massachusetts on August 31, 2013. She was found with broken bones and other injuries that indicated severe and routine torture, starvation, and mutilation; Puppy Doe was euthanized to relieve her suffering by veterinarians at the VCA South Shore Animal Hospital in Weymouth.

According to the Boston Herald, the veterinarian who performed the necropsy of Puppy Doe reported that the puppy’s limbs were repeatedly pulled apart in a “medieval style,” and the puppy was beaten, stabbed, and burned. Dr. Martha Smith-Blackmore of the Animal Rescue League called it “hands down” the worst case of animal cruelty she had ever seen. At a mere 18 pounds, the puppy weighed less than half her ideal weight, had her tongue split in two, and had been stabbed in the eyes.

Under Massachusetts state law, such aggravated animal abuse constitutes a felony and could mean a maximum of five years in prison and up to a $2,500 fine.

“We are devastated by the suffering this puppy endured and will do everything we can to support the prosecution of this sadistic abuser.” says Stephen Wells, executive director of the Animal Legal Defense Fund. “We call on anyone with knowledge of this horrific violence to come forward for the safety of other animals. Abusers frequently repeat violent crimes against helpless animals, and often go on to victimize people as well.”

If you have information relating to the identity of the person or persons who mutilated this puppy, please contact the Animal Legal Defense Fund at 707-795-2533, x1010.

    How horrible that with everything this beautiful puppy went through, her torturer might only receive a maximum of 5 years in prison and a $2,500 fine. People serve more than that for a third offense drunk driving! The things done to this poor puppy constitute aggravated assault and attempted murder. We need to step up to the plate and keep after our state legislators until they pass laws that neglecting/torturing/murdering animals deserve sentences more severe than just slaps on the wrist. Poor Puppy Doe can’t benefit from changes in the laws now, but the next dog that has the misfortune to run into a despicable human being may be helped.
