Yes, it’s sad but true, monsters do walk among us. Some are obvious. While others hide and perform cowardice acts. Like the monster responsible for this heinous crime– a tiny puppy still suffers while this monster doesn’t pay for his crimes. Thankfully, though, the puppy’s guardian angels are still fighting to find who did this and bring him to justice!
A tiny puppy was found in the trash. She was covered nearly head to toe in chemical burns. The puppy, aptly named ‘Hope’ was found alone in a trash can right outside a restaurant in Newport, Tennesee. It’s only been a week, but it’s already obvious to those who meet her that Hope is a warrior!
Hope was taken from the trash can and brought to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue (BWAR) after a short stay at Cocke County shelter. Hope certainly needed special care and the shelter could not provide that.
“Brother Wolf Animal Rescue has been working with the municipal shelter there and they reached out for help, they didn’t have the resources to deal with the severity of her injuries. Hope has been receiving 24-hour care from our staff vet; she goes home with her every evening,” a BWAR spokesperson, Brooke Fornea, told PEOPLE.
While it’s not clear who did this to Hope, officials and the rescue group are continuing to fight to find the person responsible, while Hope fights to survive.
Hope is covered in burns, mostly on her head, neck and legs. “Hope has had one major surgery to remove a large portion of her ear and remove necrotic tissue from her chest and stomach. She has since had sedation to clean her wounds,” Fornea said. “We are unfortunately anticipating another surgery to remove more tissue from her ear.”
Even though Hope is in pain and likely terrified, especially when her wounds are being treated, she is still loving. The brave little gal is described as “spunky, playful, goofy and unbelievably sweet.”
“Hope is incredibly resilient and, more than anything, wants to be held and loved,” Fornea added.
While Hope has more surgeries in store, her darkest days are forever behind her. BWAR is confident that Hope will make a full recovery. And even better, the rescue group found her an adopter for when she’s well enough to go to her forever home.
Authorities continue to look for the monster responsible. Please share Hope’s story so we can bring her abuser to justice! The tip line is in the status update listed below.
