Growing up is hard, especially if you don’t have a responsible parent or guardian to show you the ropes. Unfortunately, many people don’t fully grasp — or live up to — their responsibility to love defenseless babies.
Two unlucky Ohio puppies found themselves in the care of one such irresponsible owner, through no fault of their own. He (ᴅᴜᴍᴘᴇᴅ) the young brothers in a local park to fend for themselves. They were only three months old.
One of those puppies wandered off and was later found in a neighboring county. The second brother wasn’t so lucky. The pup was abandoned at a park in Hamilton, Ohio, and accidentally wandered over train tracks when (ᴅɪsᴀsᴛᴇʀ)struck. The accident happened on the same day the puppy was inexplicably left alone to fend for himself.
Trooper, as he is now named, lost his hind legs and tail. He was also injured.
He was saved by the Animal Friends Humane Society and, thankfully, survived the horrendous (ᴏʀᴅᴇᴀʟ).
During recovery, he remained curious and was still up for ‘kisses and cuddles from the team. Less than a month after his accident, Trooper was fitted for a doggy wheelchair and thanks to his upbeat attitude and can-do spirit, is already getting adjusted to his new set of wheels.
“If the juvenile would have just taken the dogs to the shelter, Trooper may not be injured today,” Sheriff Richard Jones said of the puppy’s former teenage owner, who was charged with animal (ᴄʀᴜᴇʟᴛʏ and ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴍᴇɴᴛ). “I am sure Trooper will find a great forever home but his limited quality of life could have been prevented if this individual made a better decision.”
