The heartbreaking story of the innocent little pit bull nicknamed Puppy Doe has resonated throughout social media. Advocates from around the world have come together on social media sites to mourn the loss of this innocent little dog, and voice outrage at the torture she endured. As reported by Enterprise News yesterday, a candlelight vigil is now scheduled for Saturday, September 28th, at Quincy City Hall to honor this sweet girl.
It is believed that her real name was Kiya, based on information given by a woman who came forward claiming to have been her original guardian, and providing pictures of the dog during her time with her. Quincy police are withholding final determination about the legitimacy of the claims, since they can only base it on the pictures provided, and want DNA evidence before making a final decision. However, from the information received so far, it does appear that Puppy Doe was actually the dog named Kiya.
Hundreds of leads have poured into the Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARLB) and Quincy Police, and detectives are following all promising leads to hunt down the monsters who tortured this helpless dog so brutally. Sadly, it appears she was passed around to a number of people after being given away on Craigslist, at one time possibly ending up in Connecticut. Substantial rewards are being offered by the ARLB ($5000), as well as Second Chance Rescue/Misty's Journey ($11,000), the Animal Legal Defense Fund ($2000), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (up to $5000), as well as smaller online organizations who are collecting donations to add to the reward.
As reported in the Patriot Ledger, a makeshift memorial has now shown up at the site where Puppy Doe was initially found. She had been dumped in the woods, unable to walk, too weak to cry, with her body battered, cut, burned, and bruised from what appears to have been months of sadistic torture. Her injuries were simply too severe for her to have any kind of meaningful recovery, so she was euthanized. The necropsy report is heartbreaking. The list of injuries this helpless little girl endured are beyond comprehension.
