A dog who was tied to a bike and forced to run for so long that she collapsed is now in safe hands. The white Pit bull, now named Penelope, was not only dragged by the cruel men, she was also allegedly beaten when she didn’t get up and left to die. She was saved by Good Samaritans who rushed to her aid and called Detroit Dog Rescue (DDR) for help.
“Penelope has been forced to have so many litters of puppies, in such a short amount of time, and there are major concerns about her uterus,” Detroit Dog Rescue explained.
“It’s very possible that she will be going into surgery to correct the neglect she’s received her whole life. Heartworm complicates things immensely, so our team of doctors and Kristina made the decision to go ahead and do an echocardiogram today. We will keep everyone updated.”
It’s likely Penelope was used as a breeding dog by a backyard breeder, or perhaps dog fighters.
