A TORTURED puppy whose ears and tail were cut off with scissors in a sickening attack is looking for a loving home.
Buckley, an eight-week-old border collie cross staffordshire bull terrier, was found abandoned in a school yard on Saturday, July 11, and taken to a veterinarian in Sydenham.
With his wounds treated, Buckley is recuperating at the Lost Dogs’ Home in North Melbourne.
Shelter manager Sue Conroy said the severe case of animal cruelty was one of the worst she had seen in 23 years at the Lost Dogs’ Home, the Mooney Valley Leader reports.
“I’ve had staff crying,” she said.
“The puppy would have received no anesthetic and would have made a lot of noise. “He would have been in unspeakable agony”
Ms Conroy said staff had treated his wounds with ointments and administered pain relief and antibiotics.
She said the puppy “was not ready to be adopted just yet”.
“Physically, he’s improving slightly every day,” Ms Conroy said.
“His hearing will not be perfect, but he’s not deaf.
“But mentally, he’s is still traumatised and is hiding from people.”
