This heart-breaking story happened a few years ago, but we can’t forget it. A little dog named Chunky was abducted from his owner by four teenagers and tortured in diabolical ways. “This was the most disturbing case I have ever dealt with – by an absolute mile,” Caroline Doe, an RSPCA inspector, told Honest To Paws.
“These youths admitted feeding Chunky drugs, kicking and punching him, and wringing and breaking his neck before dumping him in the trash. They also said they set fire to his face and eyes after lighting a deodorant aerosol can. ” On top of that, Chunky got his legs broken. “The whole thing sends shivers down my spine,” says Doe.
He was eventually found and placed into the care of the RSPCA. Caroline Doe, RSPCA Inspector, found herself shaken by the state of Chunky. “The defendants may have been young and confessed to being under the influence of drugs but the cruelty they inflicted on this poor dog was extreme, barbaric, and inexcusable. I will never forget how terrified and depressed he was when I first saw him.”
Despite everything horrible that happened, Chunky still loves his family and humans. He is more nervous and timid than he used to be, but the good news is that he is back to full health and has reunited with his original owners. The four teenagers responsible for Chunky’s injuries have been banned from owning animals for five years and were ordered to pay a fine.
The fact that Chunky survived this incident is a miracle and the best thing is he still shows trust and love towards human beings. This chihuahua has inspired so many people around the world to take a stand against animal cruelty. His determination along with his ability to trust humans again prove that he’s a pooch with the beautiful soul.
