Dog Left for Dead With Eyes Gouged Out Getting Better
FOX Phoenix: A dog that was left for dead in a plastic bag is doing better on Saturday, and the reward for information that helps police find his tormentor is bigger.
Andre was found in a Dumpster in Buckeye a little more than two weeks ago. He had apparently been used as target practice for BB guns. The veterinarian who is treating him said she had never seen a living dog with such terrible anemia, but after a blood transfusion, his is doing better.
His eyes were gouged out, but his eye sockets are healing well after his surgery. Andre is now taking short talks and has a good appetite, and he is sleeping for most of the time. He’s also heading up to Sedona with his foster family, where he will be fed every two hours.
Andre has diabetes — but is now on insulin. He’s also enjoying being petted.
PETA has posted a $1,000 reward for the capture of Andre’s abuser. The Animal Guardian Network has said it will match that amount, making the reward total $2,000.
I hope they catch the bast*rd that did this. Proper punishment? Give me 10 minutes with him and my BB gun!
