"Hope," The Brutally Tortured Dog, Has Been Adopted! Is It Worth A $35,000 Reward To Find The Perpetrator Of This Act Of Animal Cruelty?
Hope, the dog found brutally tortured in Texas last week, has a new home. The pug mix was adopted by the family whose ranch she was first spotted wandering on. She continues to recover from what the Dallas Morning News described as "one of the worst cases of animal cruelty ever reported in the county." Hope was found dehydrated, and her mouth had been sealed shut with electrical tape, with her tongue protruding. She had five large cuts that took more than 100 stitches to close. "I can't think of a better family for Hope to belong to. She will think she is in heaven at her new home with her new family," said the county sheriff.
Veterinarians indicated that Hope, who is estimated to be between 3 and 4 years old, will make a full recovery, though she may need part of her tongue removed. Hope's story garnered worldwide media attention, and more than $35,000 has been offered for information leading to an arrest in the case. The county sheriff said they have investigated several leads but are still seeking the suspect or suspects involved. "This is the bottom line," he said. "If they will torture a defenseless creature, what else are they capable of? We need to find the person(s) responsible for this."
