Charlotte, NC – A dog is alive and receiving care after someone subjected him to abhorrent cruelty. A good Samaritan found the dog, dubbed Joey, in a dumpster in Charlotte – his legs were bound behind him and he was left to die.
According to Forgotten, Now Family Rescue, Joey had also been beaten, leaving him with “countless fractures.” The rescue agency says that Joey has been abused for a long time, writing:
The heart breaking news is these fractures are all over his body and in various healing stages. This abuse was not just once. It was repeated his entire life. Joey has holes in his head Not from bite wounds but from jagged edges or debris on what was used to hit him. The blows to His skull were with such force he is blind in one eye.
Despite the abuse, Joey has maintained a sweet and forgiving nature. The agency writes:
I have saved a lot of dogs but never have I met such a thankful dog. I sat with Joey at the hospital. He cried in pain but always followed it with licking my hand. I couldn’t grasp how how he has been so horrifically failed yet still loves anyway. Every single day those of us fortunate to know him personally are in awe.
The rescue organization knows that someone out there KNOWS this dog and/or who did this to him and they are offering a $2,000 reward for the information that will lead the authorities to an arrest. If you know something, please email the rescue group at: Forgottennowfamily@gmail.com
