Once upon a time her name was Kiya, and she was a puppy like any other. At the end of her short life, her body and her spirit were so broken that she could have never existed without pain. Even her name was taken from her, and she was reduced to being called Puppy Doe.
With limbs savagely torn, bones smashed, burns on her body, stab wounds, and a crudely cut forked tongue, she was dumped like so much garbage in a Quincy, Massachusetts park and left to die. The monster who starved and abused her still walks among us and could be anywhere, likely already on to the next victim.
Public outcry and support have been staggering, but justice is a long way off. Officials are hoping that information will be forthcoming producing leads sufficient to track down a faceless, nameless enemy.

In the meantime, Puppy Doe is a fresh example of why animals should not be posted for free on Craigslist, a subject which has been controversial long before now. Countless other family pets have suffered and died at the hands of those who scour free pet listings for their victims.
