Dog Dragged by a Car Survives and Now Helps Others
(Warning: story may be a bit shocking)
Roadie is a beagle born in 2003 from Kentucky.
At age of mere 1, Roadie was abused.
Roadie was tied to a car and dragged.
Roadie was literally “eaten” up by the pavement. Roadie lost an eye and lost of a big chunk of his skin:
Luckily he survived the abuse, and is now helping others who went through similar kind of a traumatic experience.
In fact, he is so loved now that he represents “hope” to much of the patients around him in the hospital where he was adopted.
Happy ending to a tragic story, like deaf dog Sparky‘s story..
This is where most of the media and other blogs ended Roadie’s story, but since we here at PawshPal are dog fanatics, we want to raise an overlooked issue here.
Dennis Wayne Fitzpatrick, the previous
asshole person who owned Roadie was charged and found guilty of animal cruelty.
So did he get jail time for his heinous crime?
Nope. Just a fine.
If you jaywalk, you get a fine.
So if you commit a harsher crime, say tie a LIVING dog to a moving car and drag it a couple of hundred feet, shouldn’t your punishment be much more harsh?
Come on folks, are we overreacting here or does the crime fit the punishment?
