Puppy Doe, the horribly abused dog from Quincy, Mass., made national headlines after she was found near death, and a filmmaker from California has decided to chronicle her story through a documentary, according to the Patriot Ledger.
Paulina Kucharski Quaranta was greatly affected by Puppy Doe's plight and feels the need to tell the story. Originally from Chicago and living in Los Angeles, Quaranta went to Radoslaw Czerkawski's arraignment in Superior Court interviewing supporters and taking footage. Her resume includes associate producer, director and producer's assistant on films such as “Million Dollar Baby” and “Underworld.” Quaranta plans on making Puppy Doe a full-length film.
Puppy Doe, once named Kiya, was found in Quincy tortured, neglected and abused. The horrific nature of her injuries sparked rage across America and she garnered thousands of supporters. After months of investigation, Quincy police tracked down the perpetrator, Radoslaw Czerkawski.
Quaranta, along with Puppy Doe film's producer Elizabeth Lawrence, is active in animal rights and thinks the “story needs to be told on a broader level.” She hopes to interview Quincy police detective Thomas Pepdjonovic, veterinarians, the Animal Legal Defense Fund and previous owners of Puppy Doe when she returns to Quincy in February.
