They got on their hands and knees to dig out the crying creature. They were horrified to find that it was a tiny innocent puppy! Who would do such a thing?! This was deliberate and cruel. The puppy was buried alive and left to die. But why?
The puppy was buried six inches down, shallow enough to reach him but with all that dirt on such a tiny body, it was only a matter of time before he could no longer breathe. This intentional act of cruelty angered the officers. They retrieved the little guy and brought him to the vet. They were shocked when they were told that he was merely 7 days old. A monster was responsible for this, indeed!
The tiny puppy couldn’t even open his eyes. He was terrified. He had no idea why this was done to him, where he was and why, for the love of god, he was taken from his mother. The veterinary staff named him ‘Tucker’. While they were angry at the way he was treated, they were relieved that he was now in good hands.
Despite all he had been through, Tucker appeared healthy. He took to the bottle right away. One of the vet techs fell in love with Tucker and decided she would adopt him.
While there is no news on whether the person responsible for this disgusting act was caught and prosecuted, this story still has a happy ending. Tucker was saved in time and is now living a beautiful life with a family who will always cherish and love him.
Sadly, monsters do walk among us. They hide because they are cowards. They harm innocent people and animals because the blood that flows through them is NOTHING like ours. But we are stronger. Their victims are stronger too. Let Tucker’s story be a reminder that monsters will never win.
