Friendly Dog Found Duct Taped and Beaten Needs a Home

Snoopy, just moments after his rescue from behind a Bronx apartment building. Photo credit: Second Chance Rescue NYC.

Sergeant Louis Barbarelli, a Sergeant with the NYPD and a volunteer for Bronx Tails Cat Rescue, was on vacation when he got a call about an abused dog behind an apartment building in the Soundview section of the Bronx, New York City. When he arrived on scene, what he found was shocking.

A small, white Bichon Frise mix had been beaten, cut, had shoelaces tied around his neck, and had his mouth and nose tightly taped shut with several layers of silver duct tape, before being left to die behind the apartment building.

Snoopy, as rescuers have named him, was bruised and bleeding, his white fur gray and matted with dirt. Jennifer Chance, of Second Chance Animal Rescue, the organization that is caring for the sweet boy, says the dog also had marijuana residue within the substance of his coat. When they removed the tape, little Snoopy drank a lot of water, indicating that he had been taped for quite a long time.

Witnesses said they had spotted the dog laying in the apartment building’s courtyard for several days before he mysteriously disappeared. It wasn’t until days later, when one resident spotted little Snoopy in an elevator and called police that he was rescued. The rescue organization believes that people walked past him for days, either without noticing or without caring.

Snoopy is expected to make a full recovery, thanks to Second Chance Rescue, who say that in addition to being incredibly sweet, he is housebroken and appears to have had some training. Clearly he was, at one time in his 3-years of life, a loved family pet.

Neither Snoopy’s original owners, nor the person(s) responsible for abusing him have been found.

For more information or to adopt Snoopy from Second Chance Rescue visit their website and Facebook page.

    I usually do not create many comments, but i did some searching and wound up here Friendly Dog
    Found Duct Taped and Beaten Needs a Home | The Dogington Post.
    And I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like
    some of the remarks come across as if they are coming from brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are posting at additional online social sites,
    I’d like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.
    Would you list of the complete urls of all your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    Greetings from California! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out
    your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the knowledge you provide here and can’t
    wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how
    fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G ..
    Anyhow, fantastic blog!

    I think everything published made a ton of sense.
    However, think about this, suppose you were to write a killer title?
    I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t solid., however what if you
    added something that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Friendly Dog Found Duct Taped and
    Beaten Needs a Home | The Dogington Post is a little plain.

    You could look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news headlines to grab viewers to click.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get people excited about
    what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more interesting.

    Hello to every , as I am really keen of reading this
    website’s post to be updated daily. It consists of
    good stuff.

  12. While Destiny will also launch on the Xbox 360, the Sony version of the game will benefit from exclusive content unique to
    the Play – Station platform. A few days of forest living shows us no way out until we suddenly are engaged in battle with gigantic, half-mechanical animals: a bull
    and a bear. You do have vigors (plasmids) though,
    but most of the time you just forget you have them and the game knows it, because every time that I just used up the last two battles with just guns, the tutorial message comes up telling me that I
    can use vigors and won’t go away until I throw a
    lava ball.

  13. I just like the helpful info you supply to your articles.
    I’ll bookmark your weblog and take a look at again
    right here frequently. I’m rather sure I’ll
    be told lots of new stuff proper here! Best of luck for the following!

    Jun 25, 2013 at 7:52 am

    @ Marilyn, Please call an animal rescue group that is close to you and report this jerk! He needs to have his animals taken away. People like that have no business having animals. He obviously doesn’t want the dog and won’t take care of him. He may even beat the dog to death if something isn’t done. Please do the right thing, don’t sit by and let this happen, step up, make the call and report him!

  31. Sharie

    Jun 11, 2013 at 11:03 am

    I would definitely call and report the owner. There is a chance they won’t put the dog down. Plus think about the man’s other two dogs. He probably mistreats them as well.

There is no excuse for Animal Abuse. I pray they find the Monster that did this and I hope he Rots in Hell. Dear Jesus please be with this baby & ease his pain & hopefully he will be adopted by a loving family that will appreciate him. Praying for a speedy recovery.

    I have said it before and I will say it again; there is a way to bring an END to these senseless acts of pure abuse and hatred. EYE FOR AN EYE! To HELL with no “cruel and unusual” punishment allowed. All we would have to do is to simply do exactly to these perps. as they do to these defenseless, innocent animals. Whatever they have done; however long they did it for, do exactly the same to them. I am pretty certain and willing to bet the house, that if this was done, these people would not want to LOOK at another animal, let alone inflict this kind of sick and barbaric abuse.

      May 31, 2013 at 12:16 am

      Praying doesn’t just make people feel better, they are not just “lovely thoughts” praying can have way more effect than donations.

    They say that many serial killers started out abusing animals. Let’s hope the person who did this wasn’t practicing and will evolve from animals to humans.

    I am sick that anyone could do this to a loving little dog. I hope he finds a great home with people who love him.

    • Cassie

      May 31, 2013 at 1:06 am

      I thought the same thing. Some psychotic person did this, or someone that is going to turn into one. Reality is, there are so many people who would do this who are not psychos. They are sick humans…maggots on a piece of shit. They deserve to be treated like they treat these animals. Also, shame to everyone who walked by and did nothing for the poor dog.

    Can’t imagine seeing this dog,obviously in an emergency situation,and not doing anything?What is wrong with people!!!I’ve rescued numerous animals in my life and can’t imagine not even trying to help this poor little dog.Thankfully someone did step up to the plate and rescue him.People need to be involved more with cases of animal abuse instead of just turning away and hoping someone else will do something.These creatures can’t speak or take care of themselves and unfortunately the person or persons who did this won’t ever be found,even though someone saw something out there!!!I’d like to have 5 minutes with the POS who did this!!!

    This is just heart breaking! I have a little dog that looks like this poor dog. I think that if they found a child like this the police would find out who did this. Anyone capable of doing this to a dog may be abusing someone else in their life, child, wife, etc. They should make every effort to find this abuser and put them away.

    Terrible disgrace. Humanity doesn’t seem to exist anymore. I’m sick to my stomach and so sad.

    I wish people would stop “praying” and start “doing”, like donating money to causes that are making an effort to stop things like this or at least care for the animals that are tortured.

    What is happening to the free world of no one cares,whether it be an animal or a person? Are people afraid of getting involved, or just don’t care-I don’t understand the brutality,hate,racism,and all that is happening!A dog if anything,if taught love,will give more to a person than a person could ever give back! All unconditionally with forgiveness.This breaks my heart.I seen a loose pitt hanging around this house for a few days.I am afraid of them.This one,his eye which I don’t know if he can even see out of,was white,but filthy,hungry,etc.He didn’t seem like a fighter.I fed him for past few days and finally found owner which dog had no collar or id on him.Owner was nasty.I asked if it were his dog,an he said yes nastily.I said his dog has been walking thru neighborhood an needed care.He said he has 3 dogs and was given this pitt and don’t want.I asked why did he take and he didn’t answer.They are letting the dog out of the fenced area to appear as if they are taking it out,so the dog leaves enclosed area and they shut the gate on him saying that he got loose.Not true.He called dog back into house abruptly and dog ran into.I felt so bad for but couldn’t take cause I live in apt that doesn’t allow and if I didn’t,couldn’t afford the medical treatment this dog would need.His eye looked almost shut and damaged or beaten.If I call the aspca he is sure to be put dwn for he is an older dog you can tell.One wonders if putting dwn is better than living the life he is now.Am confused as to what to do.No one wants pitts and they could be loving animals!I live in FL and town across frm me,yur not allowed pitts and town I live in u need a special liscense plus a fenced area for the dog.Any suggestions.Would you call the aspca knowing they’d probably would put the dog down being that it is older an no one would probably adopt looking at him in his condition? Plus medically? Someone plse offer their advice or write to me [email protected] I don’t want to see the dog get hit by a car; there’s a major hwy.here.and he was close to it yesterday, and I walked him back to his house where I found the snotty owner.

    the world today is full of vermin (human) kind, who have no regard for life let alone these precious fur-babies. But I thank god you folks are their for them.
    I pray this precious one responds to treatment and finds a forever loving home

    Praying for him and I hope they find the cruel people who did this. May snoopy find justice. Hard to imagine we call ourselves the most civilized society when people can walk by and not care for a hurting animal.
