The female black and white Schnauzer miniature mix one-year-old puppy was mercilessly tossed into a dumpster after her previous owner duct taped her snout so she couldn't cry out for help.
Fortunately, the defenseless little dog was found and turned into the Kings County Animal Control in California on Dec. 3.
Nicknamed Pooky, the young dog will need multiple stitches on her snout, but is being cared for by the staff at the shelter. It has been reported Pooky has been extremely traumatized by what has been done to her, and Animal Control is looking for a qualified 501(c) 3 dog rescue organization to take her in and care to her specialized needs.
A Facebook page has been set up and is accepting pledges for donations which will be used for Pooky's medical care and well-being when a rescue steps forward.
Please be aware that Pooky is not available to be adopted by the general public at this time.
Also, note that no dog is considered "safe" from any shelter until they have left the building.
