A four year old Pit Bull named She was giving birth when she was pushed out of the car onto vacant land in North Toledo. Two newborn puppies were with her and she suffered excruciating pain while trying to give birth to the others. A passerby witnessed this horrific incident and called the authorities. She was taken in by the Toledo Area Humane Society for emergency care.
At the hospital, an x-ray revealed that the third puppy was stuck in his birth canal. She was rushed to an emergency Cesarean where she gave birth to the rest of her puppies. However, 5 of the 9 puppies failed. She is dehydrated and underweight and is currently receiving care with her surviving puppies.
Authorities are looking for the owner of a 4-door brown sedan who allegedly removed the birth dog from the car. The owner could easily have saved her a lot of pain if he had brought her for timely medical treatment. But throwing it mercilessly means that the owner would face various charges of cruelty to animals when caught, both a crime and an offense.
The officers asked the public to help him identify the owner. All advice can be sent to the humanitarian society’s cruelty service at 419-891-9777. Alternatively, a cruelty report can also be completed here. Let’s spread the word and help find the perpetrator of this horrific crime.
