Mother of severely abused puppy needs a home

On Wednesday, the Nassau County SPCA in N.Y., issued a release asking for help with finding a home for a special dog who is in their care.

Missy, a seven-year-old pit bull, is mother to "Miss Harper," the puppy who lost an ear and a leg in a horrible animal cruelty case earlier this year. Three people, including the puppy's owners, were arrested in the case in Feb. 2014.

The NCSPCA wrote:

When Missy was signed over to us, we immediately took her for medical care. Missy appears to have been bred often and had a few medical issues which were treated. She had a total blood workup, all shots and was spayed.

Missy had a tough life she had two back to back litters where at least one puppy in both were brutally abused. But she is resilient and still is a very sweet, affectionate girl who will be a home run in a home as the only dog; all she wants is a loving owner and some attention.

Individuals interested in offering Missy a new home are asked to email: adopt@ncspca.us
