Police near Boston, in Quincy, MA are calling on the public to find the person who abused a dog so severely she couldn’t be saved. Found with no name and no one to answer for the years of suffering she endured, the frail dog was named “Puppy Doe.” Puppy Doe sustained more than 17 injuries in the one to two years she was alive. The Animal Rescue League of Boston, Quincy Police Department and Norfolk District Attorney’s office are asking the public’s help in identifying the person responsible for the animal torture. Anyone with information, is asked to contact the Animal Rescue League at 617-226-5610 or Quincy Police Det. Thomas Pepdjonovich at 617-745-5774. More from CBS Boston http://ow.ly/peapo
What is concerning is that those who did this to Puppy Doe could now be abusing another animal or even a person.
