I realize I don't usually tell stories like this one, but this story has made me so mad that I just had to share it. Let me introduce you to Lucky. I'm not sure what kind of dog he is, probably just an old mixed breed, but he was found the other day in a dumpster, in a plastic bag, with duct tape taped around his mouth and one leg partially off. The way they made it sound, his leg was still there, but just barely hanging on. If that's not bad enough, it's believed he was used to train fighting dogs. The vet that's been taking care of him was trying to get a prostetic leg for him, but it's been determined that it's not going to work out that way, his leg is in too bad of a condition for it to work. Now they are going to have to take the rest of the leg off, but other than that, he's reported to be in better shape. They believe he'll live.

How can a human being do this to an animal. I don't know if I've told you or not, but I have a dog. His name is Tigger, my husband named him that, don't ask me why. This dog has been great. Anyway, most dogs I've found have been good, loving critters, most especially if you show them love. They're great companions and protectors, to name a few. No animal, no matter what kind, deserves to be treated like this! I just don't understand letting an animal suffer for no reason. You can tell by the picture of him that he had to be in a lot of pain when he was found.
I'll get off my soapbox for now. I just had to vent for a little while. I hope you have a great day and when you pray, please say a prayer for Lucky. He needs it.
