Anyone near Houston?

Houston, TX: Stoning victim: Mastiff mix, tethered for three days before (temporary) rescue
Today at 12:40pm
Death by stoning is more of a process than an event. Once the victim is well restrained, the attack begins. The initial blows will cause pain to the victim. The susequent accumulation of blows will, in addition to causing pain, destroy tissues and break bones. The amount of agony the victim endures before death will depend in part on the attackers' strategy. In the case of Sweetie, the attackers were not able to carry their plan to its end; they were interrupted by a woman who was so horrified at the sight of high school students stoning a dog that she stormed out of her apartment and managed to rescue this Mastiff mix.

Sweetie had been tied to a tree for three days before she was stoned. Even at the malnourished weight of 76 lbs., she would have been able to chew through the leash or break it. But, hungry and thirsty, she remained by the tree, where you can imagine her hopefully watching for her person to return to untie her and to take her home.

Instead, she was stoned. And then rescued. And then returned to the tree in the park because her rescuer couldn't keep a dog in her apartment. Then, Theresa found Sweetie in the park but she could never find the puppies who were obviously born very recently. Given Sweetie's experience, one can't imagine much good for the newborn puppies.

Sweetie has treated Theresa's dogs with all the ease you'd expect from a nice family member, and she has really touched Theresa's heart. But, three dogs is more than Theresa can manage, so Sweetie is looking for a great foster or a home. This is urgent. Theresa cannot keep Sweetie much longer.

Sweetie is HW+ and has been treated for tape- and hookworms and had a rabies vaccination.
Please contact Theresa cell at 713-498-1663 or at 2005UhCoog@gmail.com.

The poor baby, what on earth would possess children to stone a dog.
I really don't like the human race sometimes

Oh poor thing! Will she be okay so full of milk like that? I'd hate to see her get even sicker because her milk congealed in her teats from not being released by her pups suckling. Poor, poor thing. I hope somebody on the Porch or elsewhere can step up and foster her.
