There could be a significant break in the "Puppy Doe" case as Quincy detectives plan to question a person of interest in Connecticut this week in connection with the egregious animal abuse case of a one-year-old pit bull according to whdh.com on Sunday evening.
According to the source, leads have led authorities to a person in Connecticut.
Puppy Doe, a defenseless young dog, was found in August languishing in agony at a quiet park in Quincy. A Good Samaritan, who originally thought the dog had been hit by a car rescued her.
When Puppy Doe was examined by Dr. Martha Smith-Blackmore of the Animal Rescue League, it was discovered the dog's injuries were far worse than expected; X-rays revealed broken bones, stab wounds to her eyes, a crushed spine, and the dog's tongue sliced to look like a serpent's tongue. Dr. Smith-Blackmore stated it was the most egregious case of animal cruelty she had ever seen.
Sadly, Puppy Doe was humanely euthanized because of the extent of her injuries.
Puppy Doe's case has attracted thousands of animal advocates across the country. A Facebook page called Justice for Puppy Doe has garnered over 60,000 "likes" and is a place where people now come together to mourn the loss of an innocent dog and advocate for justice.
